Funhouse Comedy brings another fun-filled night to the delightful Lyric Rooms, Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
Headliner is the somewhat cynical and gloomy Mike Gunn, who despite this has the ability to get the crowd on his side, however far he pushes! In his first Edinburgh Festival Show, he appeared as a funeral director! He has appeared on numerous TV programmes, including Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), Celebrity Deal or no Deal (CH 4), and Harry Hill's TV Burp (ITV). He has also been a contributor for The Guardian and written for Time Out, The List and Match of the Day Magazine. In 2012 along with his touring partner, Sean Collins he completed a 35 date sell out UK tour.
Support comes from quirky impressionist James Dowdeswell who has appeared on such TV shows as 'Russell Howard's Good News', 'Celebrity Deal Or No Deal' and who also played The Count in Ricky Gervais' 'Extras'. His intelligent and inventive storytelling is delivered from a slightly strange perspective which is both entertaining and captivating.
Completing the line-up is cheeky and charming 'Aussie' Damian Clark, whose hysterically dreamlike material is both smart and unique; plus the notably idiosyncratic and randomly self-effacing Joshua Ross, with his anecdotal Jewish humour.
Compere for the night will be the lively and cheery Spiky Mike.
