We are back for November, one week later than usual with a cracking line-up. MC Dave Mounfield.
STEPHEN GRANT - “The kind of comedy vision that can see round corners” Chortle
Stephen Grant is one of the UK’s funniest, hardest working and most respected comedians. Whether entertaining stag and hen parties, voicing animations, warming up TV audiences, presenting radio shows or hosting corporate award nights Stephen never fails to pull in the laughs.
Stephen is a multi-award winning MC and the resident compere at Krater Comedy Club in Brighton. He performs at clubs and corporate events all over the UK and on the international circuit and has taken six critically acclaimed shows to the Edinburgh Fringe since 2003.
“Brilliant” The Scotsman.
A repeat award winner of Best UK Compere, Stephen Grant is one of the hardest working comedy performers and writers in the UK. He is the host of the Krater Comedy Club at Komedia, which has won Best Comedy Venue in the South for an unprecedented amount of times and is a regular headliner at The Comedy Store in Leicester Square.
“Grant, whose regular slot at the Brighton Komedia Club has earned him a cult status, is an engaging host and an easy person to spend an hour with.” The Independent
Stephen still finds the time to headline and MC gigs all over the country, as well as being a regular guest on The Cutting Edge at The Comedy Store, deputizing presenter on BBC Southern Counties Radio, warming up and performing on some of the biggest comedy shows on TV. His speed and dynamism create a magical energy which has audiences rapt and hanging onto his every word. It is this that led Stephen to writting for Rob Beckett on Mock the Week and for writing for Russell Kane on Live at the Electric as well as forLee Nelson’s Well Good Show for Avalon TV and Seann Walsh for Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week.
CHARMIAN HUGHES - Comedian Of The Year 2018, Nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy Award 2016, Nominated Best Comedy Show Buxton Fringe 2016. Comedian Charmian Hughes studied clowning under Philippe Gaulier and Theatre de Complicite but unable to uphold the mime vow of silence, ran away to play stand-up comedy clubs throughout the nation entertaining everyone from members of the Houses of Parliament to ‘Lifers’ in prison (not to be confused).
In her own words... ”I have been a stand up since the last century, regularly doing twenty minute sets on the circuit and compering clubs. I have played everywhere, from The Comedy Store to Glastonbury Festival, Prisons to the Houses of Parliament. My comedy has evolved with my life , keeping pace with my experience and maturity- which reflects in the eight solo shows I’ve written and performed- from early shows about motherhood ‘The Magic Muff’, being an early female stand up ‘When Comedy Was Alternative’, a trip to India in search of an escaping great great Grandmother ‘Raj Rage’, a show about hitting sixty ‘Soixante Mirth’, Charmian Hughes Bra Trek.” and new show ‘What-Not'.
