Once again arrangements are progressing to provide you with an evening of laughter and entertainment. Comedians are booked; a licensed bar will be set up and the hall prepared to welcome you to one of Wickwar FC’s fund raising events.
Enjoy an evening out within walking distance and no need for taxis if you want a drink and a chuckle. We have four brilliant comedians not seen in Wickwar before. See below for details.
Tickets are available:- £12.50 each from the Wickwar Spar and Committee Members. Make sure you get yours as they disappear fast and usually sell out before the night. Cheapest night out for miles around.
TOM TOAL – MC
Charmingly ironic Toal (or T-Squared, as he calls himself), has a quirky outlook and the gags to match. This quarter-Polish comic is softly endearing and has a fine sense of comic timing and rhythm.
“The T-Dog is certainly one of the most promising of todays emerging comics.” (Chortle)
“Funny and touching. Winning over his audience with charm, genuine depth of feeling” (Three Weeks)
Eddy Brimson is one of the UK circuits most in demand acts working regularly with all the leading promoters and is equally in demand worldwide. He played the first ever Altitude Festival in the French Alps in 2008 and the Sydney Cracker Festival in Australia and has also taken his comedy to such far flung places as Hong Kong and Bahrain. Eddy is a prolific sports writer with a string of best-sellers to his name. He once even played a gig naked.
“Brimson manipulates the mixture of laughs and pseudo- shock masterfully … as the philosopher once said: ‘It’s the way you tell ’em’ – and Brimson certainly tells ’em with confident style” (Chortle).
“Engaging and compelling.” (Three Weeks)
Robin is one of the strong new acts heading out of the Welsh comedy scene. His quick wit and natural storytelling is coupled with his confident, cheeky style. He has wowed audiences up and down the country, time and time again.
Far funnier than a man talking about Eggheads has any right to be Josh Widdicombe
“A deft descriptive style with an air of confidence and observation becoming a man far advanced of his years. He’ll win you over within moments.” – Scott Fitzgerald, Cardiff Comedy Festival
Headliner Bennett is the only Jewish/Welsh Comedian on the Comedy Circuit. His humour is a cross between the paranoid angst of Max Boyce and the colloquial valley humour of Woody Allen. In 1997 he was a finalist of the BBC New Comedy Awards, alongside Peter Kay. He is a past winner of the BBC Wales New Writer’s Award and the TAPS Comedy Writer of The Year Award and recently supported Ricky Gervais on tour. His extensive TV and radio performing credits include; Not Tonight With John Sergeant, Glee Time, Large, Never Write Off The Germans, and most recently he was a Presenter on Big Brother’s Little Brother. Bennett directed and presented the documentary How To Steal an Identity for Channel 4 and is currently working on a new sitcom for the BBC.
“One of the best gagsmiths on the circuit… a Welsh Seinfeld” – The Guardian
“Genuinely original and funny” – The Times.
“Hilarious… clever wit… razor sharp” – The Standard.
“Wildy talented” Chortle
