Comedy newcomer Pat Cahill to light up Electric Theatre
April 25, 2012
Feeling woeful about the budget this April? The Electric Theatre in Guildford intend to make up for the cuts by offering four top-notch acts for the price of three at their comedy club nights.
Without having compromised in quality, the shows are bound to sell faster than pre-budget pasties.
The next gig on May 13 will see a set from Chortle’s Comedy Newcomer 2012 – Pat Cahill.
Combining off-beat jokes with songs about dying pets (believe us this is funny and yet touching), Pat Cahill has come to the attention of many a comedy fan. Spurred on by accolades from comedy’s great and good – including a 2012 newcomer award, Pat has set the bar very high indeed for all those setting out in the business.
Surreal, witty and just plain funny, Pat is reason enough to buy a ticket, and believe us this guy is going to be huge!
New Zealand comic Andre King loves the UK audiences and has become a much loved part of the comedy circuit.
A magician, actor and one time children’s entertainer, Andre has most definitely taken a detour to the dark side. Recently nominated for ‘Most Offensive Gag’ Andre’s material is punchy, crowd-pleasing stuff.
For eight years Martin Coyote has been a pivotal member of the Comedy Store’s flagship topical show.
A seasoned writer and performer Martin’s credits include Bring Me The Head Of Light Entertainment on Channel 5, Loose Talk on Radio 1 and successful UK tours – including three sell-out tours with Lee Hurst.
Rising star Stephen Bailey is a performer with attitude. Bursting with energy he’s made quite the impression on audiences and TV celebs alike – his fans include Matthew Wright (from The Wright Stuff) and Laura Whitmore from I’m A Celebrity get Me Out of Here.
Definitely the darling of last year’s Edinburgh Festival, Stephen is much in demand and he’ll be previewing some of his material at The Electric Comedy Club.
Compere for the evening is heckler kryptonite Rob Hitchmough.
After 14 years of making audiences laugh (and wish they hadn’t shouted from the back), Rob still gets a real kick from live comedy, and it shows.
Intelligent, whimsical and utterly charming he’s the perfect MC.
Forthcoming Electric Comedy Clubs will welcome back TV regular Zoe Lyons in June and heading toward Edinburgh Festival time will feature some incredible previews by Andi Osho and the hilarious (and hygienic) Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre.
The show in May starts at 7.45pm, tickets cost £8.50 in advance and are available on 01483 444789 or at www.electrictheatre.co.uk.
