Hot Potato Comedy Club - November 2018
Leading MC Dave Twentyman heads up hosting duties for November's Hot Potato and is in very good company alongside , Alistair Barrie, Ant Campbell and Junior Simpson.
Alistair Barrie is one of the top headliners on the international comedy circuit. He has performed in over 40 countries including acclaimed performances in Australia, Cape Town, Mumbai and the legendary Comedy Cellar in New York. He is a regular at London’s world-famous Comedy Store and a core member of their weekly topical ‘Cutting Edge’ team.
He has made countless appearances at UK Festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude, Bestival and Green Man and taken several solo shows to Edinburgh. His 2013 and 2015 shows were runners up for ‘Best Show at The Fringe’ with the latter transferring to London for a run at The Soho Theatre.
Affable, quick-witted banter merchant, Dave Twentyman survived a childhood in St Helens by evolving rapid, startlingly-bright patter and a smile that he somehow stole from Barry Manilow. This is a man who could teach Teflon a trick-or-two but who remains vastly more fun than your average frying-pan. What higher praise can there be?
A regular performer at many of the best weekend clubs in the country, Dave has also performed at a number of music festivals over the years such as Leeds, V Festival and Download
This young and charismatic comic is quickly establishing himself on the UK comedy circuit with his dark, dry and surreal humour blended with touches of observational comedy. Razor sharp wit at its finest.
With his infectious energy and huge stage presence, it is easy to see why Junior Simpson is a circuit favourite. Simpson has a boundless joy and exuberance that has audiences hooked with hilarity. A true observational comic, Simpson finds his humour in the everyday and humdrum with anecdotes of his world travels as a comedian adding a personal originality to his set.
