Thursday Night Live: Danny McLoughlin, Sean McLoughlin, Spring Day, Phil Lucas, Phil Jerrod
The Frog and Bucket presents ‘Thursday Night Live’. The best value comedy night in the country. Five comedians from the national and international comedy circuit.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
With an amiable, confident stage presence and a well written set, Danny delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further.
Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word.
A bright future surely awaits.
'McLoughlin's main weapon is his audacity: he's so bold he can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs' (Chortle).
Danny McLoughlin tour dates
Half-American downbeat comedian who draws on his 'life of grinding poverty' to produce the laughs. Expect dark tales of his family and love life (he even confesses to a medical condition that makes sex uncomfortable!). You can't help yourself laughing at his misfortune!
'His bleak world view was enlivened with brilliant and unexpected turns of phrase and the element of desperation as disaster piled on disaster had a cumulatively hilarious effect, as in farce, where the more dire the consequences for the protagonist, the harder we laugh at his discomfort' (Chortle). Tour support for Ricky Gervais.
'The best comedian you haven't heard of yet' (Mark Watson, Time Out)
'At once hilarious and painfully revelatory' (Chortle)
'The stand-out stand-up' (Evening Standard)
'What a genuinely fresh and powerful voice... It is wonderful' (Scotsman).

London-based American comedian Spring Day (her real name!) was voted Brooklyn’s Best Comedian 2016. Spring's sharp, dark and bubbly comedy style is a crowd pleaser you won’t want to miss.

Phil Lucas exists in the hitherto uncolonised landscape between Harry Hill and Dave Gorman. A master of the lunatic powerpoint presentation, he’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before and will have you in fits of giggles with his absurd set.
“A huge hit with the audience.” Chortle
“Mr Lucas is wonderfully funny. Our new favourite thing.” The Huffington Post
