You Must Be Stoking – the finest stand-ups, hand-picked for Guildford comedygoers @ The Stoke pub, 103 Stoke Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 4JN
Wednesday 4th February 2015
We’re back from our winter break, and ready to blow away the cobwebs with laughter aplenty! We’ve
got a fantastic lineup this month, featuring…
Ronnie started out opening for Tom Jones, Scott Walker and Engelbert Humperdinck as a teenaged guitarist, worked with David Bowie, then went on to form cult late 70s renegades “Fabulous Poodles”. He progessed to stand-up at London’s Boulevard Theatre alongside Comic Strip regulars Rik Mayall, Ben Elton, a nascent French and Saunders and Alexei Sayle, and playing Buddy Holly in the first series of “The Young Ones”. A long-time musical collaborator with Barry Cryer, they’ve performed at The Bloomsbury Theatre and Hammersmith Apollo, and in sellout shows at the Edinburgh Festival.
“An excellent musical mimic who can slip, like a golden-larynxed chameleon, into any style he chooses” – Daily Mail
“Scabrous schoolboy humour delivered by men who should know better in a manner which indicates that they do but could not give a monkey’s” – The Stage
With top-notch support from…
Fresh from a national tour supporting Russell Kane, various TV appearances, and presenting for Radio 2, Omar is a high-energy, affable Welsh-Egyptian comic. He makes the personal political and the political personal, with a disarming everyman charm. Omar performed at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, and is a headline act at clubs around the UK and overseas.
“Just what the comedy scene has been crying out for” – Daily Telegraph
“Non-stop laughs” – Surrey Life Magazine
Jay is a stand-up, writer and actor, who’s had three successful Edinburgh shows. A finalist of the Reading New Act & New Act of The Year competitions, he was shortlisted for the BBC New Act of The Year Award broadcast on BBC Radio 4, and produces a regular podcast which was recommended by comedy website Chortle.
“Unique, passionate, funny, and one hell of an original stand-up” – New Current
Welsh Comedian Kiri has been making something of a name for herself in the short time she’s being performing stand up comedy. A unique and assured comic voice, Kiri is known for her topical, deft and sometimes dark comedy. An enviable gag rate and work ethic has seen Kiri rise from open spot to weekend act in just three years and her quick wit and natural charm sees her much in demand.
