Banana Cabaret: Dave Fulton, Mick Ferry, Mary Bourke, Pierre Hollins
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Whoever it was who decided that Americans don't have any sense of irony, they forgot to tell Dave Fulton. This wry Seattle wag is positively brimming over with ironic invective.
With his stringy beard, straggly long hair and rock 'n' roll black leather jacket, Fulton looks more like a refugee from a defunct British heavy metal band than an all-American stand-up... there's a salty flavour to his live club set that you'd scarcely describe as feminist. It's these contradictions that make Fulton so fascinating, and fun to watch, especially when he's riffing with British punters half a world away from home. (The Guide).
Dave Fulton tour dates
Popular circuit comedian and regular compere for several comedy nights. He is probably best known for his Comedy Store improvisations, but after starting his professional career as a support act for Peter Kay he was soon selling out his own one-man shows, and things look like they are only going to get better for Derker's most famous son.
On TV Mick has starred in BBC1`s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as Comedy Blue and The Comedy Store (both Comedy Central). He made his big screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Looking For Eric – a hit feature film at the Cannes film festival where it was nominated for the prestigious Palm D’Or. A prolific comic, he is a writer on John Bishop’s Britain (BBC1) and has helped make the show a ratings success.
'See him or regret it' (John Bishop)
'Absolute legend, incredibly funny' (Jason Manford)
'Performs with style and conviction... highly enjoyable' (Chortle).
Mick Ferry tour dates
Dublin-born comic, now living in London. She was the winner of the Irish World Comedian Of The Year Award 1999, and has been a finalist in several other competitions. She has performed all over the world, including the USA and Australia, winning over the audiences with her strange take on everyday events. She is currently writing her first novel.
'Intelligent comedy that's also furiously funny' (Irish World)
'Catch her act before she becomes a (complete and utter) cult’ (William Cook, The Guardian).
Mary Bourke tour dates
A veteran of the comedy circuit and a regular at Jongleurs and The Comedy Store, described variously as 'far-fetched and semi-dangerous' and 'silly and daft'. Watch out for his bizarre mixture of stand up and song, including his one string electric squash racquet! His 'songs' are jokes that rhyme, set to a guitar backbeat and cover topics from love and hate, to sex and politics. With a totally original voice he delivers his material with charm and irrelevance.
'... the amiable Pierre Hollins with his compelling chatty style and absurd guitar posturing... With a totally original voice he delivers his material with charm and irrelevance...' (Funhouse Comedy).
