You Must Be Stoking Comedy & Buffet : Ben Norris, Rick Kiesewetter, Abi Roberts, Taff, Paul Kerensa
A Christmas comedy and buffet night. Enjoy live music as you and your gang tuck into The Stoke's legendary festive buffet, then when your stomach's split, it's your sides' turn as the laughter starts.
All this plus lots of festive treats, carols, Santa hats and general yuletide nonsense. It's Guildford's best party.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
A stand up comedian working in the UK and abroad.
A popular comic/DJ on MTV, Ben has also performed on the BBC's Stand Up Show and They Think It's All Over.
His routines are a breath of fresh air, and highly original - check out his Shakespearian Porn routine...
'Killer gags' (The Scotsman)
'well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics' (Chortle)
'A master of the craft... an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see'
'One of the comedy circuits best improvisers' (The Daily Mirror).
Ben Norris tour dates

'... hugely enjoyable hour of comedy (Three Weeks)
'Subversive observations by this UK-based Asian-American comedian...' (The List).
Rick Kiesewetter tour dates
Abi Roberts and her big hair exploded onto the stand-up comedy scene in 2011. She was a Finalist and Runner-Up in the London Comedy Store's Costa Light Comedy Competition in 2012, a Finalist and Runner-Up In the 2012 Harrogate Theatre's Comedian of the Year and took the Audience Award at the same festival. She is a regular weekend act at comedy clubs such as The Glee Club, Jongleurs, The Stand, Bearcat Comedy and Lee Hurst's Backyard Comedy Club, as well as the major independent clubs, such as Crack, The Kings Head, Rip Roar Comedy, Comedy Central at Baby Blue and The Frog and Bucket, Manchester.
"Roberts is brilliant, funny and charming. She's a true comedy genius and one of GQ's Top Ten newer stand-ups you must see' (GQ Magazine)
'Raucous and incredibly funny' (The Daily Telegraph)
"Truly and hysterically funny, Roberts has definitely got the moves. She does it all with genuine charm and character, with big laughs. Abi talks entertainingly, then takes apart Loose Women and she completely, superbly annihilates it. She uses her vocal skills to mock and her Jane McDonald impression is worth seeing alone. Likewise her take on Celine Dion is brilliantly done - clever, funny and well performed. Roberts has an imposing range of talents, she gives a little song too and her impressions are, well, impressive. She really is more than just a stand-up." - Chortle
"Dangerous and hilarious and the very opposite of consensus comedy...(Roberts) has raw but relatable originality and a preternatural comfort with herself onstage and is she is unstoppable. She bounds onstage, robust, already laughing, nimbus of blond hair aswirl, genuinely happy to be there – it’s the rest of life that’s almost unbearable - and takes down target after target, rapid-fire, infectious: the porn-like fantasy of the cooking show, the depredations of shape wear. She’s a master of self-deprecation but doesn’t hinge on it. She has a very graphic bit about her iPod being on shuffle, and she kills with it." - New Statesman, Arts (review of tour support for Michael McIntyre).
"Fast-paced, high-octane comedy with brilliant routines... entertaining throughout and leaves everybody wanting more" (http://www.Gigglebeats.co.uk)
Abi Roberts tour dates
Recent winner of the Gong Show at the Comedy Store: a kind of comedy survival show which includes Ben Elton and Rik Mayall amongst its former winners. He was voted winner of the ITV Take The Mic 2002 competition and has been finalist in at least four other national comedy competitions. His confident, unconfrontational manner is reminiscent of Dave Gorman. A performer with inventive material and a bright future.
