FARCICAL COMEDY CLUB AT THE LEFT BANK VILLAGE
|October's Farcical Comedy Club||£10|
Louis Burgess is a fire hydrant of comedy. Blapping bare mandem in the face with his unique blend of comedy, music and cashews, he can be seen up and down the country on most Wednesdays poncing about in the most disgusting of ways.
Frequently described as “Bill Bailey on Crack” and “The Russell Howard of the Grungecore Folk Scene” he aims to create a new sub-genre within the genre of genre itself.
Internet sensation Gary Powndland brings his unique perspective on life to the stage. Winner of the best live comedy show at the Midlands comedy awards and Wolverhampton’s favourite son, Gary is an act once seen never forgotten.
“Gary Powndland impressed. He went on to paint a delightfully odd portrait of suburban madness. The alternate world he created and his commitment to it impressed, while the character’s stubbornness and bizarreness – even the way he describes a knock at the door – yields many a laugh” – Chortle
‘Gary Powndland is a hysterical, sharply written character and he made me snort laughing.’ – Joe Lycett
“An entertaining slice of suburban absurdity of which Vic & Bob might be proud.” – Steve Bennett
