Roll up! Roll up!
It’s Tombola of Fun 3-D: The Christmas Special on Wednesday 17th December 2008 at 8pm (Doors 7:30pm) at The Star public house in Archway/Tufnell Park. That’s right not only is it the big, big Christmas show but it will also be presented entirely in 3-D! It will almost be as if the acts are actually performing right before your very eyes and what an amazingly packed, Christmas sack-full of stellar guests we have for you this month:
Richard won the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? award in 2007 and has written and performed four successful shows for the Edinburgh Festival. This year as well as his solo show he also co-wrote and appeared in the sketch show Kiosk of Champions with Stuart Goldsmith. He recently become a bit of YouTube sensation, with his I Love Videos film which has so far clocked up an impressive 203,895 views and counting.
Sara is a comic actor, sketch performer, writer, director, improvisor as well as a stand up. As a straight stand up she’s won the Electric Mouse New Act of the Year Competition, and came second and third respectively in both the Funny Women and So You Think You’re Funny? competitions both in 2008. Sara has performed two solo stand up shows; Stand-Up-Lady and the upcoming Christmas Stand-Up-Lady. She has appeared on TV playing various comic roles on Pete’s PA and has made TV pilots for MTV and Graham Norton‘s production company. Her sitcom The Good Guide is currently in the very early stages of production.
Josh has only been performing comedy since since January this year. Since then he has gone on to be a finalist in So You Think You’re Funny?, reached the semi-finals of both the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year and the Amused Moose Hot Starlets. This year he appeared in the Edinburgh shows North By North Wales; a Welsh comedy showcase, Amused Moose Hot Starlets, and Edinburgh Harvest Festival. I was at one of his early gigs thought he was ace. If I was doing these shows then I’d have had him on and predicted big things for him, whereas now I look as if if I’m just jumping on the bandwagon.
Jake was a finalist in both the Laughing Horse Big, Big, Big New Act Competition 2008 and Spiky Mike’s Nottingham Gong Show. He also got to the quarter finals of the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2008. He’s supported comedians as diverse as Andrew O’Neil, Steve Hall, Robin Ince and Tony Law.
Tom is one quarter of the sketch group Four Sad Faces who are about to have their own series on BBC Radio 7. Tom has previously co-written and performed in the Radio 7 series Play and Record, and this year appeared in Four Sad Faces’ critically acclaimed Edinburgh show.
All these fine comics and much, much more that I’ve not thought of yet for just five Earth pounds.
Show starts at 8pm (Doors 7:30pm), but if you get there early you’ll be treated to a selection of my favourite Christmas tunes.
