Poole Comedy Club shows

 

The Coastal Comedy Christmas Show with Raymond and Mr Timpkins! Legends of the comedy circuit.

Likened to Morecambe and Wise and the Two Ronnies, anyone who can bring the house down with nothing more than a couple of Lidl carrier bags and an Oasis song have to be seen to be believed.

'It's freakish entertainment on a twisted stick', the charismatically challenged uncle and nephew duo, invite you into a world of stylophone rock anthems, brushed velvet arousal and 'indulgent, brilliant tackiness'.

'A mad, anarchic triumph of stupidity over style. Not to be missed' The Guardian.

Opening the show is the very talented Joey Page. Joey is eccentric and he is somewhat of an undiscovered sparkling gem. Magical swirling surreal comedy. An antidote to the woes of the world, Joey takes you through the tangled joy of his charmingly childlike logic. Creating a world of uniquely offbeat characters and tall tales of fancy.

‘Joey Page is brilliantly inventive and imaginative and very funny’ Josie Long
‘This innately likeable young man has an instinct for funny’ Chortle

That’s not all! Also performing at this special show is fast rising, multi-award winning comedian  Michael Akadiri who’s natural charm and cheeky, observational style has already seen him make an impact on the UK comedy scene. Most recently winning the Komedia New Comedian of the Year award.

“Expect to be laughing regularly at him in the future.” EVENING STANDARD

Don’t miss this top night out with some of the best acts on the circuit, sponsored by Turners Property. The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles from award winning Coastal Comedy – see you there!

Advance tickets including booking fee are £18 (£23 on the door)

‘A joy. Roars of laughter’ The Independent

John Newton opens the show who began his comedy career in 2003, he fast became known for his inventive writing, covering a massive spectrum of subjects from the surreal to the hard hitting, yet still managing to remember that "the gag" comes first. In that respect, he's an old fashioned gag teller/writer and proud of it.
