Funhouse Comedy Club: Zoe Lyons, Alistair Barrie, Ben Schofield, Brian Lacey, Spiky Mike
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
A comedy award nominee and a sharp and funny comedy performer who has appeared on Mock The Week. Very highly rated by fellow comedians, and regularly bringing down the Screamers Comedy Club roof.
Zoe takes a sideways view of life, picking out the many absurdities and turning them into hilarious routines which she delivers with tremendous energy. She performs her diverse material with utter conviction leaving everyone wanting for more. She won the Funny Women Competition in 2004 and the Dave, Funniest Joke Of The Fringe Award in 2008.
'Achingly funny... A cracking show' (The Melbourne Age)
'Probably the most impressive British female comic on the circuit' (The Skinny)
'Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd' (The Guardian)
'Hugely confident, passionate, energetic... she gets better and better... Excellent' (The Daily Mirror)
'Throughout her show she unleashes non-stop rapid fire bolts of vinegar wit... I
defy anyone not to fold up with laughter at her show' (Edinburgh Evening News)
Zoe Lyons was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
Zoe Lyons tour dates
Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).

Hirsute, hectoring and hilarious, Ben Schofield has performed to audience and critical acclaim at comedy venues across the British Isles. An accomplished act and MC, he marries a distinctive animated delivery with a scatologically cerebral comic voice and a keen eye for the absurd. He boastfully maintains the unique record of being the only comedian ever - as far as he is aware, or is reasonably likely - to have written a joke about galvanising dustbins (and a rather good one at that). This stands as testament to his ability to mine comedy gold from even the most unlikely of seams.
Ben Schofield tour dates
A friendly and energetic act, whose quality one-liner gags and upbeat persona liven up any night, Spiky Mike is founder of Funhouse Comedy and resident compere at all the clubs, as well as performing paid gigs at clubs around the country for respected promoters such as Agraman and Mirth Control.
