Tombola of Fun is back on Wednesday (not Tuesday) 20th July 2011 at it’s new regular home at:
Q: What? Another Tombola of Fun so soon?
Q: Will it be like the last one and just be two comics previewing their hour shows, or will it be more like the madcap, knockabout Tombola’s of yore?
A: Bit of both, but as always you’ll have my favourite comedians on the bill. Here’s who we’ve got:
Brett Goldstein attempts to tell the 100% true story of his time in Marbella as a young man, running a strip club with his dad. MARVEL at the backstage secrets. LAUGH at the hilarious antics of the mafia. CRY at the destruction of a young man’s innocence. And CLAP POLITELY at the end as you realise you’ve just sat through someone else’s therapy.
Brett arrived onto the comedy scene with a bang in 2006. Since then he has been a finalist and semi finalist in every major comedy competition going. In 2007 he was selected to appear in the Comedy Reserve, the Pleasance’s “Best of New comedy” showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In Edinburgh 2009, he MC’ed the Big Value Comedy Show in The Caves.
Brett is currently gigging all over the shop, from the Covent Garden comedy Club, to supporting Patrick Monahan at the Royal Albert Hall.
He is now the resident compere at The 99 Club Storm on Thursdays.
“Very amusing,” Time Out
“Brilliant,” London Lite
“Actual jokes built on a nicely skewed sense of humour,” The Stage
“Five Stars: just great entertainment, had the crowd laughing all the way through to the end,” USA Weekly News
Brett was described as a “Performance Dynamo” by Steve Bennett, and the Independent said he had “Excellent jokes and matey charm”. Which was nice.
Using a variety of unhinged theatrical means, comedian Chris Boyd explores the mysteries surrounding childhood friendship, John Saxon and fromage frais. Hilarious, unpredictable and satisfyingly surreal stand-up from the lanky lad from North Derbyshire. Join him for a bit of harmless fun.
“Brilliant” Leicester Mercury
“Not the sort of thing that our Kilburn crowd will tolerate.” Cock Tavern Kilburn
“Experimental, witty and bemusing” Three Weeks
“No actual jokes and the high point was getting out of there” The Groggy Squirrel
“Chris Boyd’s knowing deadpan approach builds on glorious puns about Battlestar Galactica and the Jason Bourne movies as he highlights the murky corners of his life.” Chortle
Show time 7.30pm for 8pm.
