Lee Hurst & Pam Ayres highlight Epsom comedy
January 23, 2013
Comedy features high on the bill at the Epsom Playhouse this season with appearances from some top names and up-and-coming newcomers to the comedy circuit.
Back by popular demand on Friday February 1, Jongleurs Comedy is returning to Epsom.
They ripped the roof off last time so now the country’s best stand-up comedians are gracing the stage once again. This show is suitable for over-18s only and the line-up is subject to change.
Veteran comic Lee Hurst is back on the road with his new show, Too Scared to Leave the House, which visits Epsom on Friday February 8.
Lee casts his eyes over the many ‘end-of-the-world’ scare stories that have appeared over the years, from acid rain and global warming to bird flu and mad cow disease and many other ‘apocalyptic disaster predictions’ that never were.
Pam Ayres is the ‘People’s Poet’ and much of the popularity of today’s per-formance poetry is due to this funny, clever, and perceptive lady.
Pam brings her latest show to the Playhouse on Sunday February 24 at 5pm following the recent publication of her autobiography.
In the Myers Studio on Saturday March 2, The Noise Next Door, the UK’s premier improvisation comedy troupe, are finally bringing their mind-blowing off-the-cuff humour to Epsom.
Veterans of the Edinburgh Festival, be ready to experience their blend of lud-icrous characters, witty one-liners and musical extravagance.
Treading a fine line between comedy, cabaret and a goth-pop-catwalk nightmare on Saturday March 9 in the Myers Studio, Bourgeois & Maurice defy categorisation.
The cult musical duo have established themselves as one of the international cabaret scene’s darkest and funniest acts.
Covering phone hacking scandals, ecological disasters and the sexual allure of a tax return, Bourgeois and Maurice set out to solve every issue of the 21st century using only a piano, a few plastic instruments and a very warped sense of right and wrong.
