Comedy @ Darwen Library Theatre
MC Raymond Mearns
Whether he is engaged in super quick audience interaction or telling a hilarious shaggy dog story, Raymond Mearns is one of the UK’s finest circuit comedians. Raymond Mearns. With a blinding talent for improvisation, Raymond is renowned as one of the nations top comperes and this is underlined by the fact he is a regular at the nations top comedy venues!
A regular on BBC Northern Ireland panel shows The Blame Game and Monumental, Micky Bartlett came to prominence after winning the BBCNI stand-up talent show Find me the Funny. In 2012 Micky supported Patrick Kielty on his tour of Northern Ireland, and performed in the Belfast recording of Dave’s One Night Stand. He made his solo Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2014.
Widely regarded as one of the most exciting, young comics in the world; Adam Rowe has risen from a prodigious newcomer to an international headline act, since his debut in 2010. He is one of the most sought after acts for all of The UK’s biggest comedy clubs & festivals, whilst he has also performed in & headlined clubs in The Middle East & The United States.
MC Mike Wilkinson
A professional comic for over 10 years, Mike has supported such comedy greats as Peter Kay, Johnny Vegas, Ross Noble and Jason Manford. Overflowing with down to earth Northern charm, Mike has a wonderful laid-back style. The laughs come thick and fast with Wilkinson’s dry humour and razor sharp wit…but hecklers beware, that cheeky grin can lash out and crush a heckler at lightening speed.
Matt Green was born and brought up in Yorkshire, although lost the accent for career reasons. He now lives in London, also for career reasons. He has worked extensively as a comedian, actor and writer for more than a decade, performing on screen, on radio and in venues up and down the UK and across the world. He has also recently started working as a director for comedy and music videos.
This idiot savante dresses like a matinee idol, speaks in perfect received pronunciation and is completely at odds with the world around him. Whether recounting an afternoon at the football with ‘the chaps’ or engaging in ‘audience badinage’ with the front row you can be sure the laughs come thick and fast. His Edinburgh Fringe runs have earned him two ‘Best Show’ at the Amused Moose Laughter Award nominations in addition to GQ Magazine’s Top 10 Shows Of The Fringe and a Time Out Critic’s Award.
MC Jonathan Mayor
Jonathan Mayor sets the stage alight with his razor sharp audience banter and stunning charisma. But don’t be fooled by the glitter and glamour, Jonathan Mayorunderneath lies an intelligent line of socio-political humour, from a unique and fascinating perspective, He will reduce any audience to hysterics whether they are erudite, Radio 4 listeners or the drunkest Friday night crowd.
A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.
Gavin Webster has been on the rise for eighteen years. He’s done about three thousand gigs from Aberdeen to Abu Dhabi, Manchester to Melbourne and Hartlepool to Hong Kong. Famed and respected by his peers for his uncompromising and unusual approach and distinctly original routines, he now boasts a large cult following round the country. Hard edged routines, quick-fire pastiche pieces, moronic jokes and sardonic songs, his unique style has brought him this kind of praise and attention.
