Andrew Bird‘s fledgling steps into comedy began an under aged drinker in a Northampton pub, eliciting laughter from ‘the lads’ in the tap room.
An unsuccessful stint at art collage was followed by a more successful stint at working in a factory but he really missed the tap room bantz. London called and, once again, he had the pub regulars laughing but was also performing short spots on The Big Smoke’s legendary open mic circuit.
Years of hard graft up and down the country, a multitude of Edinburgh appearnces and wrote on various TV shows menat he could now marry, buy a car, a house and even afford some children, just in time for the worst recession in living memory.
All the above has forged his mildly grumpy, slightly stressed and bemused style of performance which not only make him stand out from the comedy masses but will, no doubt, contribute to an untimely death.
Andrew has written for Jason Manford, Matt Lucas and Jon Richardson and provided tour suupport for Michael McIntyre, Mickey Flanagan and Rob Rydon.
“Comedy gold The Scotsman “Funny, likeable and effortless” Time Out ‘Made me laugh every night’ Michael McIntyre
Jamie Hutchinson‘s horrible dating past, humiliating anecdotes, and perpetual singledom may sound more suited to a counselling session but, in the hands of this naturally funny craftsman make for a painfully funny set.
Manc, ginger and proud, brace yourself for a full frontal comedic assault when Jamie unsheathes the mic form it’s stand. One liners, uncanny characterisations, puns, funny faces and clowning are all utilised to deadly effect in Jamie’s one man war on the gaps between laughter.
“Simply phenomenal” Notts Comedy Review “Absolutely hilarious” Seann Walsh
Dean Coughlin’s comedy will stay with you as permanently as the tattoos he creates in his day job.
Compere for the evening is feminist, leftie, atheist, polyamor, activist and, of course, comedian; Kate Smurthwaite!
“Fun, energetic and full of ideas” John Cleese
