February Barnstormers Comedy Club

Exactly half way through the first season of monthly Barnstormers Comedy Club gigs at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall, comedy is back at the end of the month delivering another great night of stand-up entertainment.

As before, resident compere Kevin Precious  will introduce  three top acts from the National Comedy Circuit and beyond.  On this occasion, he’ll be playing host to the story-telling delights of Jason Patterson and tough-talking no-nonsense Yorkshire lass Debra-Jane Appleby.

Jason is an award winning comedian who started out in comedy in 2006 and since then he’s performed at comedy clubs all over the country  as well as winning the Comedy Store Gong show before going on to perform a series of impressive spots there.

Currently performing sets at major comedy clubs including The Comedy Store, Comedy Cafe, The Comedy Club, Jongleurs, Off The Kerb, The Glee Club and Banana Cabaret, Jason ha also  won the Loaded Laftas Rising Star Comedy Award.

“With the confidence and stage presence of a seasoned pro this award winning comedian is definitely one to watch out for,” said Kevin.

Fellow award winning comedian Debra-Jane has appeared BBC’s 28 Acts in 28 Minutes and on Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up as well as regularly appearing on BBC Radio 5 Live, and as a guest on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.

“Debra performs up and down the country with her Northern no-nonsense take on the world, gaining accolades wherever she goes,” Kevin went on.  “Her performance has been described as confident and punchy as well as razor sharp – never missing a beat.”

The third act for the evening, on Friday, February 26, has yet to be confirmed. Tickets cost £10 in advance or £12 on the door and can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person at the Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660380.

Mammal Hands

Mammal Hands are a trio of like-minded musicians: Nick Mart piano, Jesse Barrett drums and tabla, and Jordan Smart saxophones. Signed to Matthew Halsall’s Gondwana Records they have carved out a growing following both here and abroad for their hypnotic fusion of jazz, folk and electronica: winning fans from Bonobo and Gilles Peterson to Jamie Cullum and they have been compared to both Portico Quartet and GoGo Penguin (who the group have toured with) for the way in which they navigate the choppy waters between contemporary dance music and jazz. Drawing on a rich well of influences from Sufi and shamanic African trance music, Irish and Eastern European folk music, to Steve Reich and Philip Glass and more contemporary electronica influences, their music is built around deceptively simple sounding ideas that are lent power through the use of repetition and rhythmic loops.
