Magners Funhouse Comedy: The Noise Next Door, Rich Wilson, Angela Barnes, John Mann

Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Improvised comedy at its best! This energetic fivesome transform audience suggestion into scenes, songs and scenarios in the blink of an eye, with hilarious consequences. With their perfect blend of ludicrous characters, barbed one liners, epic stories and musical extravagance, this team of slightly posh English blokes will have you in stitches with their fresh brand of off-the-cuff humour.
'What sets them apart is their great chemistry and genuine sense of joy they bring to the stage' (The List)
'Hilarious... A superior kind of chaos' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Comedy gold... Staggeringly well executed' (The Guardian)
'This is 21st century comedy at its very finest and funniest' (The Stage).
The Noise Next Door tour dates
Rich Wilson has loved comedy ever since his older next door neighbour gave him a cassette of Eddie Murphy - Delirious.'It was the most mindblowing thing I'd ever heard. My young ears had never heard language like it.'
His comedy aspirations lay dormant until he got a job as a barman at a comedy club in Greenwich, South London. Then in 2004 following some back slapping by those around him, Rich Wilson hit the stage and even amazing himself, hasn't looked back since.
'Highly entertaining' (Time Out)
'Effortlessly funny, smart and filthy. Recommended' (Leicester Mercury)
'He's a very, very funny man' (Frank Skinner).
Rich Wilson tour dates
After a career in health and social care, Angela Barnes decided to realise a long held ambition and give comedy a go. Within a couple of years she had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition.
'Angela Barnes is a brilliant new comic with an excellent on stage persona. Her acidic tone of delivery and deftly crafted, punchy material make for a very funny set' (Trevor Lock)
'... brilliantly funny' (Sarah Millican)
'... warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes... She's just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic... Like all the best comics, she manages to articulate a singular perspective while making it seem like a universal truth. And then she put jokes in it. Harder than it looks' (The Guardian)
'Angela Barnes is the best mainstream female comedian I've seen since Sarah Millican... I can't be any clearer than that can I?' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'A beautifully paced performance that was aided by the consistent quality of her jokes, many of which showed a great skill with self-deprecation' (Chortle).
Angela Barnes tour dates
Unflappable and unmissable comic who is sometimes rude, frequently silly but never dull.
'An original Red Card Comedy host and still one of the most sought after comperes on the UK comedy scene, John's gentle ribbing will get the audiences laughing. His back-catalogue of jokes are guaranteed hits with a steady stream of gags and punchlines - some groaners but all winners' (red Card Comedy Club).
