Doors 8pm, 8.30pm start
Heywood Civic Centre
L/Cpl Stephen Shaw Way
Comedy returns to Heywood Civic Centre on the last Thursday of the month. Each night features the best acts from the national and international comedy circuit, hand-picked to guarantee a brilliant evening's entertainment.
The 'uniquely original' Chris Kehoe is your MC. 'Mixing the topical and the surreal with aplomb' Chris is 'an important and intelligent voice' and a rising star of the comedy world.
Three comedians will perform at each Thursday Night Comedy event.
One of the most inventive comic voices in Britain, Caroline Mabey is a fringe and circuit favourite, appearing at festivals, theatres and clubs all around the country. Her sets are silly, warm and sharp as hell, a gag-packed frenzy of fun and she is one of the most fun MCs around.
David Longley is a difficult comedian to define; on the one hand, abrasive, crude and insulting and on the other, articulate, intelligent and disarmingly funny.
Longley’s towering stage presence and intensity, combined with his cutting wit have made him one of the most popular and controversial circuit comics in the UK, whether it’s doling out thought-provoking insights or revelling in toilet humour, Longley is a gifted wordsmith with great audience interaction skills.
David has a humble silliness which ingratiates him to audiences, he delivers deadpan accounts of his everyday life which are shockingly honest, well considered and divinely funny, maintaining a rapport with the audience that is at once edgy and accessible, engaging the whole room.
