Clapham Comedy Club @ Bread & Roses : Tom Parry, Lou Sanders : Double Edinburgh Fringe Festival Previews MC Sion James - **25% of Profits to be donated to Starlight Children's Foundation
Fresh from his Best Newcomer nomination in 2015, Parry is back with a brand-new hour celebrating life, love and going tops off! Join the largest (girth, height) third of the legendary sketch team Pappy’s as he sweats, shouts and explains everything he loves about a wedding. There will be stuff, there will be nonsense, there might even be a bit of karaoke. Important: this is not a musical show. ‘A show that believes in the soul-nourishing quality of silliness’ **** (Guardian). ‘A thoroughly joyous romp’ **** (Chortle.co.uk).
Loulie, AKA the face that launched a thousand dicks, examines conduct (in the media, baby), mental health (other people’s, I’m fine) and perverts (that one is mainly me, actually). I’ll be oversharing, wanging on about spirituality and giving everyone some much unwanted advice. As seen/heard on Taskmaster, QI, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Hypothetical, The Russell Howard Hour, The Unbelievable Truth, Ultimate Worrier and more. ‘A comedian who leaves you wanting more’ **** (Times). **** (Guardian). **** (Evening Standard). **** (Chortle.co.uk).

Clapham Comedy Club @ Bread & Roses : Paul F Taylor, Kelly Convey : Double Edinburgh Fringe Festival Previews MC Sion James - *25% of Profits to be donated to Cardiomyopathy UK Charity
Disappear down the rabbit hole of a fool’s mind. Marvel at imaginative, logic-defying, left-field ideas spoken from an award-winning comedians mouth! ‘An enticing, dizzying prospect, who whips through a welter of daft, Harry Hill-like ideas and diversions and chucks characters around with the agility of the Pajama Men’ (Independent). ‘An impressive knack for both observational wit and quirky flights of fancy’ (Evening Standard). ‘Eclectic mix of proper gags, gleeful flights of fancy and enjoyable awkwardness’ (BritishComedyGuide.info).
Kelly Convey ‘Chatham girl done good’ brings us her debut hour which travels back in time to her errant teenage years, through her high-flying twenties as an executive, right up to the life-changing decision to become a comedian in her thirties. If you’d met 15-year-old Kelly, you would’ve sworn down on your nan’s grave that she’d never be where she is today. Leicester Comedy Festival Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017 nominee. So You Think You’re Funny? 2016 finalist.
