Crack Comedy - Southbank: Otiz Cannelloni, Sean McLoughlin, Amir Khoshokhan, Erich McElroy, Luke Benson
Comedy night featuring top acts from the national circuit.
Visit www.crackcomedy.com for further information.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Otiz Cannelloni combines magic and the logic of stand-up to produce a hybrid comic creation. With a mind more suited to testing crash helmets, his performance fluctuates between sheer genius and downright stupidity.
'Master of mirth and minimalist magic... delightful' (Time Out).
Otiz Cannelloni 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).
