And Kevin Precious of the Barnstormers Comedy Club is delighted with his first season bringing top stand up comedians to the Malt kiln Road venue on the last Friday of the month.
“Well, it looks like we made it,” he said. “We’ve reached the final show of the season, and what a fantastic first season it’s been and I think we can all agree that when it comes to fulfilling our mission statement to bring top stand-up comedians to the Ropery Hall. performing in a club format, we’ve risen to the task.”
“So before we shut up the Barnstormers Comedy’ shop for the summer, let’s have a final roll of the dice and find out what’s on offer for May,” he went on.
As before Kevin takes on the role of resident compere and he will be introducing three top acts from the National Comedy Circuit and beyond.
On this occasion, he’ll be playing host to the delightfully funny Brummie lass Karen Bayley, the first ever female winner of the prestigious Comedy Store King Gong award, who was also a BBC New Comedy Awards Showcase and Babycham Funny Women finalist.
Already a rising star on TV and radio, she has appeared on The Last Word, Take The Mike, Sex on the Job, The Fred Macauley Show and is a regular on Radio 5 Live.
Appearing alongside Karen is Bethany Black, a professional stand-up comedian since 2004. Her debut show detailed the story of her being transgender, chronicling everything from her coming out through her transition and eventually falling in love and it was nominated for Best Debut at the Leicester Comedy Festival in 2008, eventually losing out to Sarah Millican.
Over the course of her career she has performed alongside some of the biggest names in Comedy, including Alan Carr, Sarah Millican, Tim Minchin and Rhys Darby.
The final act is North-West comedian Danny Deegan who has become a regular at most of the major comedy clubs in the UK since he began performing in 2003.
Danny’s tales of mischief and the characters he creates have kept audiences all over the country enthralled as he weaves in and out of the people he has met travelling. His talent and likability coupled with his confidence make him one of the most popular acts in the North.
