The Comedy Bar Islington : Holly Walsh, Lloyd Langford, Andrew Bird, John Robins, Chris Mayo
An intimate, relaxed and friendly new material night held every Wednesday at The Chapel Bar in Islington featuring the biggest and best acts on the comedy circuit.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Guildford's own Holly Walsh has many a string to her bow, being a finalist in 2006's So You Think You're Funny? and Funny Women contests, as well as presenting for CBBC. A brilliant purveyor of one-line gags and witty puns.
'She's gifted with snappy wit and crackling talent' (The Guardian)
'She peppers her set with callbacks and clever asides and has easy charm' (The Independent)
'Holly Walsh really impressed... excellent sets and endeared herself through
some assured banter with crowds who really took to her' (British Comedy Guide)
'A talent for smart comic writing and the ability to keep an audience rapt' (The Observer)
'Her steady stream of witty and astute cultural observations belie her dorkiness from the first' (Chortle).
Holly Walsh tour dates
Welsh comedian and comedy writer who has appeared on Ask Rhod Gilbert and written material for TV shows Live At The Apollo, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and The King Is Dead. Lloyd's hearty comedy crawl is a delicious blend of jokes, stories, observations, ad-libs, one-liners, accents, theories, topical gags and self-deprecation.
'Particularly brilliant' (Fest)
'... an undiscovered genius' (The Guardian).
Lloyd Langford tour dates
Watching The Young Ones with his brothers as an eight year old, at two in the morning on Comic Relief, he realized then that he wanted to be funny in some way. Relaxed and improvisatory, Andrew Bird is one of those rare comedians who makes friends with his audiences in an instant with his engaging mix of childhood stories and more recent anecdotes.
He has supported Rhod Gilbert and Lee Hurst as well as performing internationally.
'Superb... the exciting rising star' (Time Out)
'A natural comedian' (The Stage)
'Beautifully observed and insightful... not only an entertaining story but a very funny hour of fine stand-up' (Chortle)
'Effortlessly engaging and funny as hell' (Rhod Gilbert).
Andrew Bird tour dates
Winner: Best Debut Show – 2009 Leicester Comedy Festival.
John has quickly made his name as one of the most quick-witted, engaging comedians on the circuit. He's the latest to burst out of Bristol's hotbed of talent and he has stories to tell, banter to have and bombs to drop.
'Funnier than all of them, his self-deprecation and Olympic ad-libbing would have you skipping happily down even the darkest alley' (Venue)
'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
'Comedy's best kept secret' (The Skinny)
'A complete and utter natural' (Russell Howard)
'... fantastically entertaining' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Sparkling stand-up' (The Times)
'One of the most consistently pleasing hours on the fringe' (The Independent)
'One of the most naturally gifted comedians I've seen' (The Daily Telegraph).

A comedian who started performing stand up in his late teens, Chris has built up a huge reputation locally as a comedian, comedy actor and writer, with bookings in London clubs and gigs across the country.
Chris has performed in the Amused Moose Comedy Awards and So You Think You're Funny and has toured with his own show 'Rabbit'.
'Laughter therapy of the best kind' (One4Review)
'Written and performed with a fearless confidence' (The New Current)
