George’s Comedy Club, Blackburn
Danny McLoughlin, Andre Vincent, Molly McGuinness, MC Phil Ellis all at Blackburn’s longest running comedy club Scroll down for comedians’ details.
If you have ever had the pleasure of visiting Alexander’s Comedy Club in Chester (Britain’s longest running provincial comedy club, we are told) then, the chances are, you have had the pleasure of seeing it’s resident compere; Danny Mcloughlin.
Overflowing with natural charm, Danny instantly endears himself to the crowd but don’t let that occasional jafakin twang fool you.. Danny’s as sharp as a tack.
Crowd work is just one of Mcloughlin’s skills though, his material is highly distinctive and often falls back onto his twin obsessions with chocolate bars and all things Disney. He has even been known to mine maniacal laughter from simply eating a trifle on stage. ( This was even funnier for us the night it had gone off. )
As well as Alexander’s he regularly performs at The Comedy Store, The Glee and Manford clubs, various music festivals and been regular MC for the coveted Edinburgh Comedy Awards Gala. Both Micky Flanagan and Sean Lock have asked him to support them on tour, so he did!
His Damn Daniel podcast has won him a new legion of fans which have made his 2022 UK tour ‘More Fire’ possible, although Danny claims it’s just so he can get a dressing room to himself.
‘Innate comic timing, insightful digressions and ability to think on his feet puts him alongside the most talented and genuinely funny comedians!’ Three Weeks
‘He can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs.’ Chortle
Circus performer, clown, comedy historian and, of course, stand up comedian; Andre Vincent has many strings to his bow. So many he’s going to need a bigger bow….
Born in a Woolworth’s department store Andre has since appeared in the oddest of places including a bullring in Columbia, a Nova Scotian baseball stadium and Vietnamese refugee camps in the South China Sea!
This multi talented performer is equally at home improvising, riffing off the crowd or unleashing one of his many scalpel-sharp one liners and is a must see for all those who love laughing till it hurts.
Andre’s many claims to fame include having opened for the legend that was Bob Hope as well as teaching Cliff Richard to ride a unicycle!
“One of the best” The Times “Thought-provoking originality and biting humour” The Scotsman
“Blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension” Metro “Ferociously funny” Sunday Times
According to Molly McGuiness’s Instagram she’s ‘a comedian, a writer, a cow, a gossip and a slapper’ but, having reached the finals of last year’s BBC New Comedy Awards, it’s fair to assume she’s a little bit more than that. We like what we’ve seen so afr and we think you will too.
And who better to hold it all together than the deliciously manic Phil Ellis? Phil’s hysterically funny and downright wrong kid’s show – Funz And Gamez was so funny the Edinburgh Fringe people had to create a prize for it. He’s also written and performed in three of his own Radio 4 series alongside Johnny Vegas, Lee Mack and the late, great Sean Lock.
