LOL Comedy Club Christmas Special: Josh Widdicombe, Katherine Ryan, James Acaster, Eric Lampaert, Matt Richardson, Jeff Leach
Please note that this is the very last LOL Comedy Club night.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
One of the best up-and-coming comedians on the UK circuit, Josh Widdicombe is in constant demand at clubs and theatres across Britain. He is also fast establishing himself on the live circuit, regularly supporting huge comic talent such as Alan Carr, Kevin Bridges and Michael McIntyre. Star of BBC2's 'The Rob Brydon Show', Channel 4's 'Stand Up For The Week' and '8 Out Of 10 Cats', Josh was also nominated for Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer 2011 and Chortle Best Breakthrough Act in 2011. He was also FHM Stand-Up Hero 2010.
'Guardian sports reporter turned ace observationalist Josh Widdicombe has the ability to find the sparkle in the mundane that puts him in line to be the next Sean Lock' (The Guardian)
'This is one of the most individual, accomplished, hilarious and unforgettable hours I have had this year' (The Scotsman)
'His talent for comedy is priceless' (Evening Standard)
'Nicely crafted observational comedy' (The Independent).
Josh Widdicombe tour dates
The product of a strict Irish father and a glitzy Canadian 'stage mom', Katherine Ryan won neither friends nor pageant titles growing up. Try as she might to shed her questionable perspectives and super sparkly nature, she's not sure we can ever truly escape our childhood indoctrinations.
As well as being a writer-performer Katherine is also a talented actress and played the lead role of George in Victoria Pile's Channel 4 series Campus. Katherine also appeared regularly throughout the second series of EpisodeS as Merc's Assistant.
'She has perfect timing and enough attitude to stop an elephant in its tracks' (Time Out)
'If only every comedian was as acerbic, smart and downright funny as Katherine Ryan' (Eastern Daily Press)
'This entertaining hour... flies by... all the hallmarks of an increasingly assured
comic...' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Warped wit... striking presence... killer lines... calm confidence' (The Scotsman)
'Young, smart and acridly funny' (The Sunday Times)
'Thoughtful, funny and just twisted enough' The Times).
Katherine Ryan tour dates
Winning over critics and fans alike, James Acaster has earned himself a reputation as one of the most hotly tipped acts of 2012. Effortlessly confident, James's appreciation for the whimsy and detail of everyday life are a breath of fresh air. His laid back style, playful wit and appetite for the unconventional make for an evening of mirth and hilarity, and a night in his company is a treat to behold.
Since winning Laughing Boy New Act of the Year, James has gone from strength to strength appearing on Dave's One Night Stand, Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three) and Show & Tell (E4) whilst also playing to over 100,000 people on tour with Milton Jones.
'Curious, original, immensely enjoyable stuff' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department... One of comedy’s most original voices' (Evening Standard)
'Reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring but suffused with enough of his
own personality to sound crisp and fresh' (The Independent)
'Stand-up of the highest most playful order' (The Guardian).
James Acaster tour dates
Eric is renowned for sweeping up audiences in the sheer energy of his performance. Delightfully weird with a keen eye for the absurd, his scatty character rips like a mini-hurricane.
'Delightfully weird' (Time Out)
'He makes it look so easy but this is a man with very funny bones. Definitely one to catch' (Daily Express)
'Superb banter that was clearly improvised. The sign of a good comedian' (Three Weeks)
'Lampaert is at ease with the performer-punter dynamic, displaying a cool comic ease that grounds the show. Natural comic flair and the knack for a decent hook, action-packed and rapid, exploring the less-traditional delivery style really works for him, and should prove enough comic bite to take him to the next level' (The Skinny)
'Quirky with an eye for the absurd and a couple of near-Izzardian flourishes… energy is such that it's almost osmotic' (The Stage).
Eric Lampaert tour dates
After starting comedy in 2009 at 18, Matt has become one of the fastest rising stars in comedy. 2013 saw Matt presenting ITV2's The Xtra Factor and appearing on Celebrity Juice, Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Sweat the Small Stuff and many more, and also touring with his debut national tour.
'Mildly laddish, but self deprecating stories all delivered with an irresistible twinkle...
This (extremely) young stand-up is poised to be the next bright, young sensation on the circuit - expect to hear a lot more of him' (The Guardian)
'Hilarious and charming' (The Daily Mirror).
Matt Richardson tour dates
Actor and comedian Jeff Leach is a young man hell bent on world domination. He performs his own opulent and revealing brand of stand up comedy whilst acting in feature films, writing sketch and sitcom pieces and also developing and presenting immersive documentaries.
'... sexual charisma and undercutting self-awareness... unsparing attractive honesty!' (Edinburgh Is Funny)
'... has a brilliance in the way he writes and perform that at times is relentless' (New Current)
'A fearless comic, on an ascent to the top of the comedy circuit' (Festival Journal).
