Never miss another 'Mike Gunn' show
Comedy Club: Mike Gunn, Phil Nichol, Paul B Edwards
"Our monthly comedy night returns, with Mike Gunn and Phil Nichol. Paul B Edwards is, as always, in charge. Licensed bar.
Mike Gunn's Letchworth gig follows a sell-out tour with Sean Collins and a barnstorming appearance on The Michael McIntyre Comedy Roadshow.
His cynical outlook was cultivated by a misspent youth and a series of grim jobs. A self-confessed pessimist, he describes himself as "not a natural choice for a career in laughter". He has a rare ability to walk close to the line of what audiences find acceptable and yet still remain likable and funny. His reputation for being a bit unfriendly, a touch dark and even morose is really not true. In real life he's loving, warm and philanthropic. Just a bit misunderstood.
Phil Nichol has won numerous awards, including The Scotsman Fringe First winner 2011. His skill as an improviser, be it musical, comedy or straight, is unparalled. With a surreal edge to mischievous rantings he always brings something new to the stage."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Dark and disturbing one-liner comedian, dispensing decrees, decrying disarmingly, and disgorging diatribes on death and drugs, delivered in a deadpan style. In his first Edinburgh Festival Show, he appeared as a funeral director!
He has appeared on numerous TV programmes, including Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), Celebrity Deal or no Deal (CH 4), and Harry Hill’s TV Burp (ITV). He has also been a contributor for The Guardian and written for Time Out, The List and Match of the Day Magazine and was support for Lee Mack on a huge theatre tour.
'One of the 10 leading stand-ups in Britain' (Independent on Sunday).
