FOLLOWING the huge success of the first CrazyBird Comedy Club at The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen in Stroud, organisers have again teamed up to bring you a Christmas Comedy Cracker on Friday, November 24.

Not only will there be four professional comedians but also a festive hog roast.

Once again, MC for the evening will be Geoff Whiting, who will ensure both audience and acts alike are enjoying themselves.

Opening up proceedings will be newly crowned ‘English Comedian of the Year’ Nick Page.

His material is a surprising mixture of cynical observation and storytelling, drawing on his useless degree (International Politics and Far Eastern History) and inability to do a proper job (he was an estate agent but is mostly cured). He is quite tall, some would say very tall, but that may be hyperbole. His brother holds the record for throwing a Wellington boot (292 feet).

Storming through the middle section will be Tim Hoskins performing as our favourite German ‘Marti’.

Tim performs as character act Marti, mocking British local customs, language and habits. Naïve observational content with some wordplay and storytelling aim to give this act broad and entertaining appeal.

The club also welcomes Alex Boardman who is one of the most sought after acts in the country due to his ability to interact with any audience and to seemingly conjure something out of nothing.

His free flowing style and natural charm breeze through in performances. His unique brand of “Flattery and abuse” is done with a lack of malice and a big sense of fun.

Alex’s pedigree is of good stock having written material for John Bishop’s recent Stand Up tour, live material for Jason Manford on 8 Out of 10 Cats as well as warming up audiences for numerous household comedians.

Food between 5.30pm-7.30pm and during intervals (Food costs are separate from ticket price)

  • 8pm. Tickets from The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen, Trading Post and
