First appearance at Ropery Hall for rising star Joel Dommett

Currently appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe, one of the fastest rising stars on the Comedy Circuit, Joel Dommett, will be making his first appearance at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall in September.

Joel, who gained rave reviews for his Edinburgh shows from 2009 including this year’s Pretending to Smoke with a Breadstick, will be delivering his new solo show, Joel Dommett: Live.

“He is one of this country’s most energetic and exciting comedians who first came onto the comedy scene in 2007 and has never looked back,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.

“Since 2007 he has earned his place as one of the most energetic and original comics on the UK comedy scene. The critical acclaimed that his debut show gained has led to multiple appearance on UK TV and his audiences and critics seem to be in agreement that Dommett is becoming quite the national treasure,” she went on.

“His enthusiasm is infectious and his patter hilarious,” Liz continued.

Since he started his career in comedy, he has gone from being the face of MTV, writing and presenting their daily news bulletins, to presenting Live In Chelsea, the live E4 after show to hit series Made In Chelsea.

He has also appeared in How to Survive a Disaster Movie (Channel 5), co-starred in the hugely successful Impractical Jokers on BBC Three, and has numerous acting credits to his name, including Skins on E4 and Popatron on BBC Two.

Joel has performed stand up on Russell Howard’s Good News and has recently appeared twice on Nick Grimshaw’s Sweat the Small Stuff.  He served as a panelist for Nicole Scherzinger’s team in the Sky 1 music and comedy show Bring the Noise.

Joel will be appearing at Ropery Hall on Thursday, September 22, at 8pm.  Tickets, £12 in advance, can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person from 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.
