Catch the next one:
Stand Up For Labour Northampton: Sara Pascoe, Tony Hendriks, Jessica Fostekew, Crispin Flintoff
Stand up for Labour returns to Northants to raise money for Northampton Labour Party with a comedy night taking place at the cinema-turned bank-turned bar The Picturedrome. Two guest speakers to be announced.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes - Campus, Live At The Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week among others - as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent)
'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe tour dates
Jamaican born Tony's comedy has a Caribbean flavour, an international perspective and is universally funny! He's one of Jamaica's greatest exports. After being voted Best Jamaican Comedian 1999 and 2000 Tony decided to export his unique brand of Jamaican bananas to England.
He currently lives in London and works all over the UK.
'Hendriks, nicknamed Paleface, has the charisma and presence to be able to delve into genuinely fascinating topics, and still hold the attention and the laughs' (http://www.Chortle.com).
Tony Hendriks tour dates
Jessica has been performing improvised comedy and working as a comedy actress since 2005. In January 2008 she hit the UK stand up circuit like a thunderbolt of joy and was a finalist in the Funny Women's Awards 2010.
She had a very successful one woman show 'Luxury Tramp', which ran at the Brighton Fringe. A review of her show concluded that she is clever, silly and most importantly funny and that she can hold her own with any other stand up, male or female.
'Fostekew is a hugely engaging presence and there's something reassuringly honest about her... Consistently hilarious' (Fest)
'Great fun' (Guardian).
