Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival: Abnormally Funny People: Steve Day, Liz Carr, Don Biswas, Steve Best
A group of gifted stand-up comedians strut their funny stuff.
Some sit down and stand-up, others stand on chairs and stand-up, others simply stand up and stand-up. All but one of them is disabled. They are all funny people.
For age 16 and over. May cause offence.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
The stand-up circuit's only deaf comedian. If there is another one, he hasn't heard! He brings his own inimitable brand of humour. A vibrant and energetic performer, Steve utilises his deafness to produce tears of laughter from his audience.
'Revelatory and very funny' (The Guardian)
'Warm, funny, frank and thought-provoking' (The Scotsman).
Steve Day tour dates
Liz Carr is a wheelchair using actor, writer, stand-up comedian and broadcaster. She began her performing career when she co-founded the disabled women's comedy sketch group 'Nasty Girls' in 2001. In 2003 she trained with Graeae Theatre Company and worked with The Young Vic. She made her stand-up debut with Abnormally Funny People in 2005, was runner up in the prestigious Hackney Empire New Act Competition in 2007 and is now a regular on both the disability and mainstream comedy circuits.
Liz Carr tour dates
Don's unique set combines both razor sharp one-liners, with humour about having Dyspraxia (organization and co-ordination difficulties) and mild traits of Asperger's Syndrome, and the effect it has on people, while coming from a middle class Indian family. Also thrown into the mix are quirky observational, political and topical humour.
'A phenomenal gag teller with an engaging stage persona, Don Biswas shows all the signs of a truly great comic' (Hecklers Comedy Club).
Don Biswas tour dates
'A one man joke shop' who is funny, frenetic and exhausting to watch. A great visual comedian, harnessing a mind-boggling array of gadgets and gags to keep his audience in stitches. Funny, frenetic and mad, his act can feature anything from blowing up a woman and eating balloons, to cutting his hand off and doing press-ups on his willy. His very immature approach to life makes time in his company pure joy.
