Off The Rails Comedy Club, Saddleworth
Our 21st Birthday Show with Alistair Barrie, Ben Norris, secret special guest and MC Alex Boardman
When not taking the roof off at Britain’s best comedy clubs, Alistair Barrie is often to be found working as both comedian and awards host on the lucrative corporate circuit. In fact, Alistair is so versatile, he could well be the only comedian ever to have performed at both the Labour and Conservative Party conferences. He has also performed for the troops in Afghanistan although we didn’t dare ask which side…
“Excellent” The Independent “No one does righteous indignation with the same brio as Barrie” The Guardian
Ben Norris has a couple of claims to fame including being the father of triplets and Martin Freeman’s cousin but these seem almost tame compared to his abilities as a stand up comedian. Ben’s fearless, free wheeling improvisational skills and laidback demeanour combine to make his sets look as easy as they are devastatingly funny.
“A master of the craft” GQ Magazine “Superb” Cape Times “One of the comedy circuits best improvisers” Mirror
MC Alex Boardman hails from just down the road in Chadderton and spent the Nineties compering fledgling comics such as Dave Gorman and Johnny Vegas onto the Frog & Bucket stage before finishing up in the Hacienda. Now a family man, his hilarious tales of domesticity are guaranteed to strike a chord with any audience and his gag writing is peerless. So much so he has penned jokes for many of the comedians you will see on your telly as well as programmes such as A Question Of Sport.
“A great comic and a skilled writer” Sarah Millican
