Double Headline Night
It's a double headline, Britain's Got Talent special this month at Comberton!
Mandy Muden is a stand-up comedian and sit-down magician. Described as like 'Alison Steadman playing a beauty consultant doing Tommy Cooper-style magic but without the fez', Mandy would take that as a compliment. With an act made for the digitally-enhanced age, Mandy has audiences astounded with both the brilliance of some (certainly not all) of her magic and in hysterics at her off-the-cuff one-liners and observations. She was a semi finalist on Britain's Got Talent in 2018.
With storytelling comics there's a moment where the audience asks themselves 'I wonder if that's true?'. With Nick Page (English Comedian of the year 2017, Britain's Got Talent Semi Finalist 2018) there is more doubt, because the stories are so outlandish, and yet at the same time there's the sure knowledge that every story is true, and that his is a life lived laughing from disaster to disaster.
He's definitely one of those people you shouldn't like but do. He has an enviable gag rate, with each story and routine filled with set ups, call backs and devastating punchlines. His stories are unique, yet relate to everyone. Everyone has felt frustrated by the legal system, nobody else has tried to go to prison to prove a point. Everyone watches daytime TV, nobody else has been sacked from it for an incident involving a Russian call girl and an antique rocking horse. "The very best storyteller on the circuit." Rhod Gilbert.
Rob Coleman has made what he laughingly calls a career out of being grumpy. And having amazing hair. "Very strong and extremely funny ...a naturally funny man." Bedfordshire News.
Our MC is Laura Lexx, one of the most effortless comedians making a splash in the comedy scene today. She indulges her audience with childish glee and attention, and her shows are never the same twice. She recently made her debut on Live at The Apollo. "A bouncy, bubbly stand-up star" The Telegraph.
