Wayne Beese: Record of Under Achievement
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
When Wayne Beese left Holly Hall Grant Maintained School in the summer of 1996, as Head Boy and with a clutch of GCSEs, a message from his form tutor in his leaving book said "the world was his oyster".
Nearly 25 years and several career changes later, it's not quite worked out to plan. He's never really got further than Telford.
Join Wayne for this brand new show as he uses the contents of his original Record of Achievement to regale hilarious stories from his school days, as well as his journey post-education through football pitches, factories, supermarkets, bingo halls and newspaper offices to his present home on the stage.
With his two daughters now at secondary school and his eldest just starting GCSEs he'll also ask the question - how important REALLY is school?
40 minutes of brand new material and the chance to find out the back story of your favourite compere, with a support act also on the bill.

"Truly special talent" Express & Star "Had the audience howling" Dudley News "Wayne Beese is one of the sharpest comperes I have had the pleasure of working with. Fantastic gags paired with split-second wit - an enviable combo" Joe Lycett "One of the best MCs I have seen this year. Audiences frickin' love him" Tom Stade Despite only picking up a microphone just over four years ago, Wayne Beese has quickly cemented a reputation as one of the most exciting up-and-coming comics in the Midlands. Born and bred in Dudley, he is demand both as an act, where he has performed at top comedy clubs such as the Glee in Birmingham and Manchester's Frog and Bucket, and increasingly as a host and compere. Renowned for his banter, quick wit and improvisational skills, Wayne is resident MC at the award-winning Fitz of Laughter Comedy Club in Stourbridge and the popular Loffs At The Lamp in Dudley. He is also host of Live At The Civic at Brierley Hill Civic Hall, where he has introduced the likes of Ross Noble, Joe Lycett, Mark Watson, Doc Brown and Tom Stade to near-1,000 crowds in the last 12 months. He has been nominated for a host of awards, including "Best MC" at last year's Midlands Comedy Awards, the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award and Midlands Comedian of the Year at the annual What's On awards.
