The Funny Side Of Covent Garden - Christmas Show: Ian Stone, Julian Deane, Marcel Lucont, Gareth Kane
The very best in stand-up this Saturday featuring three top stand-ups and a compere as usual.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Ranked amongst the top ten stand-ups in Britain by The Independent, Ian Stone is one of the most talented topical acts and comperes in the country. Edgy and provocative, with an easy-going manner and self-depreciating style, Ian is at great ease bantering with an audience. He's a member of the Comedy Store's critically acclaimed 'Cutting Edge' team.
Ian also received a nomination in 2012 for the Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival Awards. He has performed all over the world including Comedy Festivals in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, South Africa, Holland, France, Ireland and Germany. He’s entertained the troops in Kuwait, Bosnia,Kosovo, Cyprus and Afghanistan. He was the first British stand-up to perform in Moscow and the first performer to appear for The Comedy Store in Mumbai.
'Seriously funny' (The Guardian).
'One of the top comedians in the country' (The Independent).
