Steve Gribbin, Dan Tiernan, Dean Coughlin, MC Freddy Quinne all at Darwen’s monthly comedy club! Scroll down for comedians’ details.
Acts subject to change. 18+ Proper sweary swearing. Fully seated. We want everyone to have a great night so please pop your mobile on silent and don’t chat when the show is on. Thanks!
Steve Gribbin first took to the stage at the tender age of 13. He was cruelly beaten into third place by a ventriloquist and a Donny Osmond impersonator. You can’t keep a good man down though and Steve’s love of making people laugh rivals that of his affections for Liverpool FC and Elvis Costello. Steve puts absolutely everything he has got into every single gig he does. Sweat drips as he hammers out short, sharp satirical songs that strike chords throughout the room. If it’s in the news, he’s written something rapturously funny about it, slaughtering sacred cows with deft musicianship and crowd slaying wit. No one can count themselves as a true comedy fan until they have seen Steve Gribbin. A bulletproof booking, whether it’s Glastonbury or The Comedy Store, Steve will more than do the job and we are proud to call ourselves fans.
‘A highly refreshing and original comic. Hilarious!‘ The Scotsman ‘Pulls it off with real aplomb.‘ The Independent
Manchester’s Dan Tiernan is making big waves on the circuit despite only being in his mid-twenties. Gay, dyspraxic and with enough energy to power the national grid, Dan draws on his unconventional and chaotic life for inspiration and will reduce you to tears of laughter. 2021 saw him named Break Through Act of the Year in the North West Comedy Awards, 2022 saw him win the BBC New Comedian Of The Year, British Comedian Of The Year, and, in January 2023, he became The Met Comedian Of The Year. Dan is going to be huge.
“Raucously entertaining” The Guardian “Exhilarating performance… …a frenzy of laughter.” Chortle
Your middle act is Mild High podcast host Dean Coughlin and your compere is Freddy Quinne who absolutely hates writing about himself in the third person but needs to fill out this part of his website because sometimes promoters will use these bios and copy and paste them into their own comedy events when he is on. Including us. We are going to add that he is half-Manx, the man behind the Pigoted podcast and a very safe pair of compering hands.
