Get stuck into the real ales on Friday 23rd February as the long-awaited Ale & Arty beer festival gets underway. And, of course, no good beer festival would be complete without a helping of top-class comedy.
Catch 22 legend and improv- extraordinaire Matt Reed has been brought in to take on MC duties for this beer special festival. Watch Matt thrive in his natural habitat – surrounded by booze and banter. And, as the BBC noted, he’s: “Absolutely hilarious…had the crowd rolling around.”
Lloyd Langford is no stranger to TV or radio. His TV appearances include Q.I, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Russell Howard’s Good News – the list goes on! He’s also penned jokes for 8 out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and many more. So, a pretty impressive CV then.
Broadcaster and comedian Ian Stone was ranked amongst the top ten stand-ups in Britain by The Independent. Topical, edgy and provocative – Ian is known for his plethora of incredibly funny and finely-crafted material.
Ian is a member of the Comedy Store’s critically acclaimed ‘Cutting Edge’ team, he has appeared on and written for a number of TV shows – and just about every BBC radio station that ever existed.
Regarding one of Ian’s shows, Chortle had this to say: “Beautifully crafted stories, peppered with gags and asides, hilarious throughout. Not a word is wasted in his clever telling of his worldview.”
Mancunian comic Jamie Hutchinson mixes anecdotal story-telling about past mishaps with a few cheeky one-liners thrown in for good measure.
Please note: Line-ups are occasionally subject to change. And this comedy night is not for the easily offended.
