The Coastal Comedy Show: Ben Norris, Peter Phillipson, Adrienne Coles
"Enjoy a fantastic night out and get to see TV Headliner Ben Norris Live:
As seen on:
They Think It's All Over (BBC1)
Mock the Week (BBC2)
Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2)
Ben has been performing on the comedy circuit since 1993 and has recently been supporting Ed Byrne on his national tour. He has appeared on a range of different television shows, is a regular at The Comedy Store, and has developed an incredibly relaxed stage persona with an innate ability to improvise as well as deliver sharply crafted material.
"The term circuit legend is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades and rarely departs a stage without leaving it torn to shreds in his wake. A master of the craft, this will be the most polished stand-up you are likely to see." GQ Magazine
"A cast iron guaranteed headliner" - Londonisfunny
"Killer gags" - The Scotsman
"Truly a sight to behold" - Ed Byrne
Opening the show is funny man Pete Philipson who has been building a name for himself on the circuit as a fantastically funny act over the last few years, mixing fast paced observations and routines with wonderful characterisations. Pete is able to command an audience as well as he commands a variety of accents, wearing his comedy heart on his sleeve and leaving the audience in hysterics at his misfortunes and frustrations with the minutiae of everyday life,
Due to popular demand we also bring back the Coastal Comedy Gong Show! A variety of new acts will perform and the winner will win £50 and a spot at another Coastal Comedy show! The audience do the voting for this and it’s a really fun part of the show as well as helping to promote new talent.
The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles. Come and enjoy a night of top comedy put together by award winning Coastal Comedy, right here at Hotel Celebrity, Bournemouth."
