Laughing it up at the Theatre Royal Winchester
A HOST of brilliant stand-up comedians are set to delight audiences at Theatre Royal Winchester as the comedy festival returns to the stage from October 3 to 6.
The festival kicks off with comedy rapper Doc Brown who has developed a cult following via You Tube for his “Proper Tea” rap, on the Thursday. Doc’s tongue in cheek take on hip hop culture has been showcased on Russell Howard’s Good News and he has also appeared on television in The Inbetweeners, comedy series Rev and Ricky Gervais’s Derek.
Comedy ventriloquist Nina Conti, described as a comic genius, shares her Dolly Mixtures on the Friday.
Saturday night is Comedy Gala night, with appearances from a sparkling line up including Isy Suttie the star of Peep Show, Katherine Ryan (Mock the Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats), Paul McCaffrey and Jarred Christmas.
Comedy Club 4 Kids comes to the Discovery Centre on the Sunday. The show is tailored to suit children aged six plus.
Simon Evans rounds off the festival on Sunday with his show Friendly Fire, in which he cleverly dismantles the lies – from fairy tales to post-match analysis – that confound us all.
