An eclectic fusion of the UK’s finest comedy club comedians and a venue that has seen an epic 21st Century reimagination, Comedy – Live at The Garage is the rapidly becoming the sell-out show you need to see.
Funhouse Comedy brings another great night of laughter to The Garage, Chilwell (Barton’s) Nottingham on Saturday February 17th.
Topping the bill is Pierre Hollins who has been an audience favourite on the comedy circuit for many years, and has headlined at clubs throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In the early days, he worked as a support act to Lenny Henry and Rory Bremner, appeared in the West End with Rita Rudner and toured with The Flying Pickets, Willie Rushton & Barry Cryer. He has completely re-invented his act several times. In a more recent incarnation, he was found wielding an electric squash racket! His relaxed amiability is defined by a compelling conversational style and absurd guitar posturing.
Opening the night will be Canadian stand-up, writer and actor David Tsonos. With his friendly and confident persona, he intrigues the audience with his combination of banter and impulsive comments.
Also appearing is Shazia Mirza, an international award-winning comedian and columnist for the Guardian Weekend magazine who has also guested on ‘Have I Got News For You?’ From Birmingham, she was previously a science teacher with one of her former pupils being the rapper Dizzee Rascal. Star of radio and TV she has appeared on ‘Last Comic Standing’, ‘Richard and Judy’ and ‘The Wright Stuff’. Shazia’s distinctive act combines a deadpan delivery with observation on her world; her laconic one-liners represent something quite unique in modern comedy.
Compere for the night will be the affable and playful Dave Williams, with his imaginative and witty accounts he has the crowd eating out of his hands.
