You Must Be Stoking is back – The finest stand-ups hand-picked for Guildford comedygoers!
2010’s final gig fell victim to the wintery showers but the first gig for 2011 is all set to go ahead without any interuptions from the weather (fingers crossed!). So why not kick the January blues out the window with a good old giggle with us and our monthly comedy night.
Doors open 7:30pm and the show starts at 8pm.
Tickets are £7 in advance from The Stoke Pub & Pizzeria (credit card bookings on 01483 504296 or contact us to reserve your tickets). Tickets are £9 on the door.
You Must Be Stoking January 2011 Line Up:
For eight years, Noel has performed comedy throughout the UK. He is a Capricorn (near the Sagittarius end which makes him a Saggycorn)- His act is gag, gag, gag all the way – though some of it consists of non-baby-talk. Above all, his act is highly original; the guy who wrote it assured him of this.
Surreal, bizarre, absurd, intelligent, and a very accessible act who generally goes down well anywhere.
“Liberates the lunatic side to our personalities – brilliantly!” – Time Out
“Stands out like a droll giant in a comedy land of trite dwarfs” – The Independent
“Huge fan!” – The Sunday Times
“Absolutely Hilarious!” – HTV & Wales on Sunday
TV Credits worth mentioning include:
- Packing Them in -Channel 4
- The Stand-up Show -BBC
- Giamocs -S4C (nominated for the Rose of Montreux)
Henning is one of the few German comedians to perform in the UK, and a favourite of Stewart Lee. His “beautifully crafted diatribes” (Time Out) are delivered with a passion that seems all too real and his material covers topics from football to the price of second-hand shoes, what the Germans think of our beloved ‘Allo ‘Allo series, to why humour is overrated and stand-up comedy pointless.
“Who said Germans have no sense of humour? Gloriously unreconstructed comedy” – Guardian
“Glory lies ahead” – Time Out
“Ja. Ja. Das ist gut.” – Max Mosley

The Guildford resident is fresh back from the Edinburgh Festival, where his 5th solo show was called “dazzlingly funny” by The Spectator, with full houses the entire two-week run. He won ITV’s Take The Mike award back in 2002, was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards and The Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award the same year. Now Paul is a regular at the major comedy clubs up and down the country.
