Big Mouth Comedy Club Middlesbrough
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Starring: MC Danny Mcloughlin, Steve Shanyaski and President Obonjo. Full line-up to be confirmed.
Big Mouth favourite Danny Mcloughlin is heading up hosting duties tonight. With a razor sharp wit and a master of improvisation, charming and charismatic Danny is widely regarded as one of the best MCs around.
"His innate comic timing, insightful digressions and ability to think on his feet puts him alongside the most talented and genuinely funny comedians!" Three Weeks
Steve Shanyaski’s whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have constantly proven a hit with even the quietest crowds... The key to his act being his energy and silliness.
He has performed his comedy throughout the world: to an audience as diverse as bikers in a field, to royalty in a theatre, and never ceases to go down a storm.
“LOL’ing all over at him” Sara Cox, Radio 1
President Obonjo is the larger-than-life, uber-confident, self-appointed, side-splitting dictator of ‘Lafta Republic’ who has quietly been leading a comedy revolution to become the first President to take over the comedy industry by storm.
“It’s a great comic construct, with lots of seized opportunities for playing with the clichés” Steve Bennett, Chortle
Line-ups subject to change. Not for the easily offended.
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).

'President Obonjo has become a successful comedian because of his innovative use of the internet to engage with Lafta addicts online. The internet was part of an overall digital strategy that has turned thousands of supporters to embrace obonjomania. 'Now thousands are hooked on a daily dosage of Lafta and Obonjomania pill. You are guaranteed no side effects but you might be seen laughing out loud on your own after watching a clip or reading a note this could make people think you are going looney, Kolo or MAD. 'Obonjo has really shaped intellectual comedy and brought it to a home near you by phone, laptop, blackberry, TV and on stage' (www.comedycv.co.uk).
