Comedy Excentrique

Descripton of show:


The festival launch show .... featuring the fabulous compere talents of legendary "housewife" comedienne Mrs Barbara Nice (the hilarious comic creation of actress Janice Connolly, who you may have seen playing the mother of Peter Kay on "Coronation Street").  As a stand-up comedian she is fantastic!  Truly a performer who has to be seen to be believed - hilarious, OTT and even quite dangerous!


The launch show also features three excellent comedians from the UK circuit....


Steve Williams

'He sees everything through the sort of gag goggles that make the most everyday subjects absurdly funny' The Daily Record

'Its impossible not to roar along with the rest of the audience. You just cant help getting caught up in all that excitement. Astoundingly hilarious this guy deserves praise like the best of them' Three Weeks


Bill Wooland

"His sharp and interesting observations were delivered in a gentle manner with perfect timing." Leicester Mercury

Amiable and easy-going raconteur, a seamlessly funny and warm friend. - Southport Comedy Festival


Andy White

"Had me exercising my pelvic floor muscles to avoid an accident" BBC Tees
"Undeniably entertaining" Chortle.co.uk
"Oozes talent" What's On Magazine

As well as the comedians, the launch show also features the dazzling Cathouse Belles performing the CanCan, and a glorious Las Vegas showgirl dance routine.  Plus international circus starlet Haylee-Mai will astound you with an aerial silks performance.  And the bizarre Smurfz-A-Go-Go will amuse you with their crazy fire performance.
