Ivor's Comedy Drop-In: Tom Allen, Rick Right, Stuart Goldsmith, Ivor Dembina
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Tom Allen is a comedian, writer and actor. He started as a stand up at the age of 22 and went on to win both So You Think You’re Funny in Edinburgh and the BBC New Comedy Awards in the same year. Since then he has honed his unique style of sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling by performing to audiences all over the UK and around the world.
Tom Allen is a wonderfully laconic anecdotalist, and bears an uncanny stage presence to what might be described as the love child of Kenneth Williams and Stephen Fry. He has a genius for digression and an ear for hilariously mundane comments and platitudes. A rare talent, indeed.
'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).
Tom Allen was named in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2017.
Tom Allen tour dates
America's self styled rock'n'roll comic combines sardonic wit, subtle sarcasm and a 10,000 song memory - a human jukebox!
Rick Right tour dates
Whether cheering up a distressed child, helping prevent a riot, or genuinely saving another human's actual life, Stuart Goldsmith is excellent in a crisis. When the chips aren't down however, it's a very different story... Exhilarating stand-up about embracing anxiety, conquering indecision, and getting tasered.
'Intriguing and invigorating' (The Scotsman)
'Marries pitch-perfect audience repartee with cleverly woven tales of the everyday' (The Independent)
'A fine jokesmith' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'Probably one of the most likeable acts on the circuit' (Metro)
'A pitch-perfect performance, every nuance carefully calculated for maximum impact… a set rich with wordplay' (Chortle).
Stuart Goldsmith tour dates
A London-based Jewish comedian who usually gives great value for money by doing a double show of his solo work. Ivor Dembina runs the Hampstead Comedy Club which he founded in 1994.
'Acclaimed Jewish comedian Ivor Dembina' (The Guardian)
'The success of the performance was down to Dembina's delivery, each quick fire gag delivered with the stereotypical panache natural to this veteran of the Jewish comedy scene. I would urge you to go and see what is an excellent show' (http://www.BroadwayBaby.com).
