Thursday February 22nd. Steve Day, Josh Pugh, Lucy Thompson. MC Rob Coleman
Steve Day describes himself as Britain's only deaf comedian, if there are any others he hasn't heard. Actually there are a couple of others who have started since he wrote that joke, but it's only a joke after all.
For the past eleven years Steve has been performing to huge laughter around the country and abroad, well they tell him the laughter was huge to humour him, he doesn't know either way.
Married with five children, a fact nothing to do with not being able to hear the word 'No', Steve has been described as 'warm and witty' by the Scotsman and has received many other rave reviews whilst performing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Also on the bill is Josh Pugh. Josh is funny. That’s why he does well in competitions, with confident and clever writing that takes you off on glorious tangents. Steve Bennett of Chortle.co.uk calls him a “promising voice” who “finds laughs in unusual places” whilst The Londonest says he’s “pleasingly off the beaten track”. Josh has a unique, interesting and funny voice with a very exciting future.
Lucy Thompson only started her journey into the world of comedy back in February 2014. Although still a relatively new face on the circuit Lucy has already made a lot of noise earning a Fosters Breaking Talent Award Nominee within her first year on the circuit. A Midlands act who currently resides in Leicester, Lucy has proven herself to be a very promising emerging talent. With a nominations at this years Dave’s Leicester Festival for her debut solo show ‘Lady’ and a victory in The Midlands Comedy Awards when she picked up the title of Best Breakthrough Act, Lucy has put herself firmly on the comedy map.
MC for the night is Rob Coleman. Rob is an established semi-pro comic doing opening, middle, headline and MC work for a wide variety of provincial clubs. He is primarily a gag based act but has some observational material in his set and is very comfortable working the crowd.
