The Coastal Comedy Show with TV headliner Mike Gunn.

 Television appearances include: Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), Celebrity Deal or no Deal (CH 4), Harry Hill’s TV Burp (ITV).

Mike Gunn’s history is as interesting and entertaining as his comedy. A misspent youth and a series of grim jobs cultivated his cynical outlook on life and a perverse desire led him to the world of stand-up. A self-confessed pessimist, he describes himself as “not a natural choice for a career in laughter”. 

Early in his career Mike was supporting the likes of Jo Brand and Alan Davies and has supported Lee Mack on his huge UK tour. He now headlines at all the top comedy venues in the UK and is rapidly reaching cult status on the circuit.

“Mike Gunn will make you die laughing” The Guardian

“One of the 10 leading stand-ups in Britain” The Independent on Sunday

Opening the show is multi-award winning comedian Tom Taylor who 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.

In 2013 Tom reached the final of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition, and recently performed on Radio 2 and Radio 4 as part of the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards.

Also supporting Mike is Sam Russell, an exciting newer act already making his mark on the comedy circuit, both in the UK and abroad. Warm and likeable, his optimistic, upbeat brand of comedy focuses on the hilarity of life’s weirder moments and the challenges of it’s everyday mundanities, to which we can all relate.

Don’t miss this top night out with some of the best acts on the circuit. The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles – see you there!

‘Bursts on to the stage like a breath of fresh air, with impish grin, boyish enthusiasm and an effortlessly open, confident style’ Chortle

 

Opening the show is the fabulously funny John Newton, who began his comedy career in 2003, and 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.

‘John sucks you into his world with obscurely brilliant comedy’ The Comedy Vibe

Also supporting Marlon is rising star of the circuit Joe Jacobs who can effortlessly flit between hip hop and comedy and he’s been seen/heard on Channel 4, BBC Radio 4, plus gained millions of viral video views online as well as recently appeared on Channel 4’s stand up show ClubNite.
