Childish Things 9: Comedy Night: Josh Widdicombe, Charlie Baker, Hal Cruttenden, Holly Walsh, Out of the Blue, Tony Law
Helen and Douglas House are proud to announce Childish Things 9.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
One of the best up-and-coming comedians on the UK circuit, Josh Widdicombe is in constant demand at clubs and theatres across Britain. He is also fast establishing himself on the live circuit, regularly supporting huge comic talent such as Alan Carr, Kevin Bridges and Michael McIntyre. Star of BBC2's 'The Rob Brydon Show', Channel 4's 'Stand Up For The Week' and '8 Out Of 10 Cats', Josh was also nominated for Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer 2011 and Chortle Best Breakthrough Act in 2011. He was also FHM Stand-Up Hero 2010.
'Guardian sports reporter turned ace observationalist Josh Widdicombe has the ability to find the sparkle in the mundane that puts him in line to be the next Sean Lock' (The Guardian)
'This is one of the most individual, accomplished, hilarious and unforgettable hours I have had this year' (The Scotsman)
'His talent for comedy is priceless' (Evening Standard).
Josh Widdicombe tour dates
Imagine if Jack Black, Frank Sinatra and Jethro had a son...
'Let's Dance for Comic Relief' winner Charlie Baker brings his incredible mix of jokes, song and dance to the stage. Charlie was a regular on the 2010 series of Richard Bacon's Beer and Pizza Club, starred in The Comedy Store, which aired in January 2011.
The Guardian has described the hyperactive funnyman as 'a superior take on the modern showman' and 'Devon's answer to Frank Sinatra'.
Charlie Baker tour dates
Following stand out performances on Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Let's Dance For Comic Relief (BBC1), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1) and Mock The Week (BBC2), Hal is being strongly tipped as the next big thing.
Hal's comedy is simultaneously warm and catty, straight and camp - it's a lovely mix that has made him a regular guest on John Bishops's Only Joking (Sky1) and led to not one, but two sitcoms being produced this year.
'An absolute joy to watch... fabulous' (The Scotsman)
'Best solo stand-up show to date' (The Daily Telegraph)
'He had the audience eating out of his hands' (Chortle)
'On the edge of great fame' (Fest).
Hal Cruttenden tour dates
Guildford's own Holly Walsh has many a string to her bow, being a finalist in 2006's So You Think You're Funny? and Funny Women contests, as well as presenting for CBBC. A brilliant purveyor of one-line gags and witty puns.
'She's gifted with snappy wit and crackling talent' (The Guardian)
'She peppers her set with callbacks and clever asides and has easy charm' (The Independent)
'Holly Walsh really impressed... excellent sets and endeared herself through
some assured banter with crowds who really took to her' (British Comedy Guide)
'A talent for smart comic writing and the ability to keep an audience rapt' (The Observer)
'Her steady stream of witty and astute cultural observations belie her dorkiness from the first' (Chortle).
Holly Walsh tour dates
Tony is a triple Chortle award winner and was a Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award 2012 nominee. As seen recently on Have I Got News For You, Buzzcocks, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and more.
'One of the finest and funniest comics on the circuit... destined for comedy stardom' (Time Out)
'Form-busting and hugely enjoyable' (The Times)
'Clever and blithely zany' (The Daily Telegraph)
'to see Tony Law is to inhale deep breaths of comedy oxygen' (The Herald)
'An ever-changing, hard-to-contain, force of nature' (The Guardian)
'A fine celebration of the absurd, full of laughs like no other... a top-notch comic who marries a powerful delivery with some deceptively ingenious material' (Chortle).
Tony Law tour dates
