Comedy @ Darwen Library Theatre

Saturday 3rd November

MC Justin Moorhouse

Northern-born Justin Moorhouse has been taking “charming the pants off the crowd” (Sunday Times) since he first entered the spotlight in Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights playing the tiger faced, Young Kenny. The “brilliant entertainer’s” (The Stage) career has gone from strength to strength since appearing on the show.

“The amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration” Guardian

Jo Caulfield

Best-known for her legendary one-woman shows, Jo Caulfield is “one of the finest female comics at work” (The Observer) and was nominated as “the best female Stand-Up in the country” (Chortle.co.uk).  She is in demand at all major UK comedy clubs, and has completed three nationwide theatre tours.

Tom Taylor

Multi-award winning comedian Tom Taylor has received high praise from audiences and critics alike. His unique brand of musical comedy is smart and silly in equal measure and he boasts an impressive stock of quirky, and very funny, musical one-liners.

“A pure, laugh-filled delight” British Theatre Guide

Troy Hawke

Milo McCabe is a character comedian with over ten years’ experience on the circuit. He has twice been nominated for the Amused Moose Best Edinburgh show award and was listed as GQ’s Top Ten comedy shows of the festival.

“Mad comic genius” The Scotsman

 
Saturday 1st December

MC Michael Legge

Michael is a stand-up comedian with a cruel tongue that gets the rest of his body into trouble – definitely for the adults only!
“Often copied, but never matched” Time Out

Addy Van Der Borgh

Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the ‘Stand-up Show’ on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian.

Brendon Burns

This foul-mouthed antipodean is known as a masterly exponent of his art, intelligent and hilarious, railing against bigotry without preaching and taking the audience to the edge of their belief systems with his full on comedy routine.

“The most jaw-droppingly awkward, painful, yet ultimately rewarding piece of stand-up we’ve ever seen” Time Out

 
Saturday 5th January

MC Justin Moorhouse

Northern-born Justin Moorhouse has been taking “charming the pants off the crowd” (Sunday Times) since he first entered the spotlight in Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights playing the tiger faced, Young Kenny. The “brilliant entertainer’s” (The Stage) career has gone from strength to strength since appearing on the show.

“The amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration” Guardian

Andrew Bird

With his easy charm and sharp wit Andrew Bird has rapidly established himself as one of the best young comedians in England. He has an animated story telling style which is punctuated by his keen perceptions on life.

“Superb… the exciting rising star” Time Out

Micky P Kerr

Leeds-based comedian and social commentator, Micky P Kerr is a breath of fresh air on the live comedy circuit. Fusing together music, spoken word and comedy, with his tongue often planted firmly in his cheek, Kerr has been described as the bastard spawn of John Cooper Clarke.

“So smart, so quick, so funny, so different, so original. You absolutely nailed it!” Simon Cowell
