FESTIVE FUN lies in store at Off The Rails Comedy Club in Greenfield over the Christmas season.
On Tuesday, December 27 at the Royal George on Manchester Road the line-up stars Paul McCaffrey, Troy Hawke, Amy Gledill and MC Mick Ferry.
Paul McCaffrey has risen rapidly up the ranks, scooping several awards and unequivocal approval from Frank Skinner.
His assured delivery and beautifully observed material lead to bizarre flights into silliness and darkly gleeful rants and he regularly appears on BBC’s ‘Impractical Jokers’ as well as ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’ and Comedy Central.
Troy Hawke engages with the 21st century like someone who has spent the last forty years in suspended animation.
The savante dresses like a matinee idol, speaks in perfect received pronunciation and is completely at odds with the world around him but makes sure the laughs come thick and fast.
Amy Gledhill is the middle spot for the evening while Mick Ferry comperes.
Doors open at 7.30pm for 8pm Show. Tickets cost £10 from the website or from behind the bar at the Royal George in Greenfield.
Then the first show of 2017 is the Saddleworth Morris Men’s fundraiser which was an absolute scream last year.
On Saturday, January 14 Seymour Mace, Tez Ilyas and MC Rob Riley will take to the stage, with one more act to be confirmed.
Although now best known for his regular appearances with Johnny Vegas in BBC’s ‘Ideal’ Seymour Mace is a stand up performer.
Having worked around the world in street theatre Seymour also trained as a circus clown before finally taking the plunge into stand up and soon headlining at major clubs in the UK.
Blackburn born Tez Ilyas has appeared on The One Show, The Now Show, Live From the BBC, Virtually Famous and Safeword and has also written and starred in his own comedy shorts for BBC Three, BBC iPlayer and Sky Arts.
The show is rounded off with one act to be confirmed and host and compere Rob Riley.
Doors open at 8pm for 8.30pm Show. Tickets £12 or £10 advance on sale on the website or from behind the bar.
