Comedy @ Darwen Library Theatre
‘Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians.’ – Stewart Lee
Ben is a highly experienced and hugely well-respected stand-up. He’s been performing comedy since 1993 and is renowned for his incredibly relaxed stage persona and his innate ability to improvise as well as deliver sharply crafted material.
Other interesting facts about Ben: he’s the cousin of actor Martin Freeman and also the father of triplets (2 girls and a boy)
Based in the West Midlands Hannah is a regular on both the local and national circuits. Her adult set combines frank and honest stand up comedy with a warm delivery and the occasional comedy song thrown into the mix.
Rob is known for his hyperactive brand of humour. Since winning Channel Four’s prestigious ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ Competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and National circuit.
MC Alun Cochrane
Alun Cochrane is a master at observational comedy and one of the best stand-up comedians in the UK. He tells tales about eating, sleeping, daydreaming, driving, being a son, father, brother, friend, mortgage-holder, clothes-wearer, car-owner, radio-listener, train-traveller, door-opener (and closer), alcohol-consumer, hangover-sufferer, newspaper flicker-through-er, occasional football watcher, and general liver of life, in short; he gets material from anywhere he wanders in mind or body.
I have been treading the boards – some would say walking the plank – for twenty-five years. An experienced, very original, comedian from Swansea, Wales, who has headlined most comedy clubs in the UK. Surreal, bizarre, absurd, intelligent, and yet, somehow strangely attractive. No, seriously he is a very accessible act who generally goes down well anywhere.
Following in the footsteps of the West Country’s finest comedy talent, Tom has been growing in the dark depths of the south west where he is a regular MC and headliner for those rooms no-one else can afford to drive to. Gigging to everyone from students to the ladies of the WI this plucky comedian has developed a knack of winning over any crowd with his tales of life on the outside and his observations on the minutiae of the everyday. And if that’s not your thing he also does funny accents and pulls silly faces.
Matt has made a name for himself presenting some of the biggest shows on television, including The Xtra Factor, Celebrity Haunted Mansion and The Hangover Games, all whilst presenting the Drive-time Show on Virgin Radio. As well as all this presenting work he’s been a guest on Roast Battle & The Chris Ramsey Show (Comedy Central), Celebrity Juice, I’m a Celebrity: Extra Camp, CelebAbility and Love Island: Aftersun (ITV2) as well as Celebrity Squares and The Chase: Celebrity Special (ITV1), as well as Big Brother’s Bit on the Side and Lip Sync Battle (Channel 5
