Gut Rocking Comedy Club Upstairs : Imran Yusuf, Nathan Caton, Julian Deane, Nish Kumar, Rachel Anderson, Siôn James
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Comedian who was a 2008 Hackney Empire finalist renowned for his super-high energy performance. Imran has a unique voice stamping his mark for positive, uplifting comedy at every turn.
Born in Mombasa, Kenya and raised in the UK with a brief stint at school in the USA, Imran has also travelled much of the world including Israel/Palestine, Jordan and Saudi Arabia during the Lebanon Crisis in 2006. His work has been inspired by this rich multicultural background, giving him a youthful, energetic and highly original voice that embodies the multi-cultural wealth that exists in modern Britain.
He seamlessly switches between styles with graceful fluidity, repeatedly delivering heavy-weight punch lines with enormous panache. His seemingly light-hearted satire is mixed with hard-hitting topical commentary on contemporary issues that culminate into a tour de force of comedy offering an all-embracing sentiment in his trademark styling
'Imran Yusuf's show heralds the birth of a new comedy star. Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny, it's a glorious debut' (Time Out).
Imran Yusuf tour dates
Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly obsevational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride.
'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks)
‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine)
'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle)
'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian)
'A huge star in the near future’ (http://www.one4review.com).
Nathan Caton tour dates
Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Winner in 2010.
'Deane's well timed deadpan delivery was on cue every time, he'll definitely be one to watch' (Medway News)
'A particularly nice line in understated pay-offs' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'Well written gags, well executed one liners' (Chortle)
'... he's able to generate a stream of seriously good gags, the kind of quick,
sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines that'll always keep a comic in work and an audience richly entertained' (The Guardian)
'It's just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings... His trick is to make you think you're watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines' (The Independent).
Julian Deane tour dates
Stand up comedian who was nominated for Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival and has been heard on BBC Radio 4.
'Massively charming and very witty... a delightful talent' (Time Out)
'Impressive and accomplished... full of confidently delivered, wryly witty tales that delight in the quirks and possibilities of language' (The Scotsman)
'Superb... delivered with such glorious abandon' (List)
'A comedian on the up... An ingenious, witty look at identity that suggests Kumar
will soon be getting known for all the right reasons' (The Times)
A highly polished, subtly innovative stand-up... he nails the punchlines over and over again, thanks to taut, economical writing that puts audience pleasure firmly ahead of self-indulgence... His is a talent worth catching up with' (The Guardian)
'A laughter-filled hour' (The Daily Telegraph).
