Comedy @ Darwen Library Theatre

Saturday 3rd August

MC Dan Nightingale

Dan Nightingale is widely regarded as one of the best performers working on the comedy circuit today. Mixing fiendishly accurate observation with energetic characterisations and killer punch lines, his comedy is original, playful, intelligent, poignant and exciting; sometimes ridiculous… but always hilarious. He has performed as a regular TV warm up for the likes of Jonathan Ross, John Bishop and Celebrity Juice.

Roger Monkhouse

A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger Monkhouse`s trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit. Supremely confident, with audience banter down to an art form, Roger is happy to improvise freely but has no shortage of first class material in his armoury. A master of observational comedy with a routine that is universally and unfailingly hysterical. A sought after compere and headliner across the UK and internationally.

Peter Flannagan

Peter Flannagan is an Irish comic and writer living in London. He hasperformed at clubs, festivals and competition finals all over Ireland, the UK and Australia, including the Vodafone Comedy Carnival and Vodafone Comedy Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe. He was a finalist for the Irish Comedian of the Year in 2017 and the Laughing Horse NATY in 2015.

Lost Voice Guy

Lee Ridley AKA Lost Voice Guy may not be able to talk but he definitely has something to say and his comedy will leave you speechless. He is the first stand up comedian to use a communication aid. He won Britain’s Got Talent in 2018 and he won the BBC New Comedy Award 2014. In 2013, he took his first ever solo show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has performed a show there every year since.
