Queer Contact 2013: Comedy Playground: Jonathan Mayor, Paul Sinha, Debra-Jane Appleby, Tom Allen, Heena Patel
This is a special edition of Contact’s infamous comedy lab.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
'A self-obsessed, glittery queen with a larger-than-life personality who arrives on stage in a bamboozling mix of innuendo' (Manchester Evening News)
'An incredible presence on the stage. Mesmerising to watch and an extremely articulate improviser. Fantastic' (XS Malarkey).
Jonathan Mayor tour dates
Paul Sinha is a qualified GP and international stand up comic of many years standing, having performed in all major comedy clubs in the UK, as well as China, Auckland, Singapore, the Middle East, South Africa, Netherlands and Germany.
Paul's second full length solo show 'Saint or Sinha' received widespread critical acclaim at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was nominated for the if.comedy award (formerly the Perrier).
Since then Paul has been in great demand, whether on TV shows such as Edinburgh and Beyond, World Stands up, Comedy Shuffle and Comedy Cuts, on Radio 4's Loose Ends and the Now Show, or his numerous contributions to Radio 5 Live and Talksport, as well as having recorded for Shane Warne's Ashes podcasts.
'Wonderfully inventive and intelligent’ (Evening Standard)
'One-liners are delivered with the crisp clarity of cut glass. Highly original' (Metro)
'Universal anecdotes as warmly delivered as you would find anywhere... it's a
pleasure listening to him... Opinionated, witty and smart – Sinha is the certainly one of the comics Fringe goers should be flocking to' (Chortle)
'His confidence on stage was excellent and his talent for adlibbing and summoning gags off the cuff were very funny' (BBC Online).
Paul Sinha tour dates
One of the most popular comedians on the London circuit with her skewed observations that are sometimes dark, sometimes political, hopefully relevant, but usually just bizarre.
'Her strength is in performance, confident, punchy' (Chortle).
Debra-Jane Appleby tour dates
Winner of the coveted comedy awards So You Think You're Funny? and the BBC New Comedy Award.
'I urge, nay demand – that you see him perform' (Three Weeks)
'Riotous entertainment... Allen is one of life's true eccentrics' (The Guardian)
'Tom Allen makes me reach for old-fashioned words like debonair and urbane. Blessed with crystalline enunciation and velvety, vocal warmth, he sounds as though he was born at the BBC' (Chortle).
