Second season for Barton Ropery Hall’s Barnstormers Comedy Club
Following a highly success first year, the second season of monthly comedy nights at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall gets underway in fine style on Saturday, September 20 with the Barnstormers Comedy Club
Master of mayhem, prop lunatic Wes Zaharuk has been likened to Tommy Cooper on acid as he takes the audience on a joy-ride of frenzy machine-gun anarchic physical comedy routines and maniac physical audience interaction.
“He is a one-man tour de force, known to combine routines with power tools, bananas and film noir,” said Kevin Precious, compere on the evening. “You could call him plain daft, but his award-winning eccentric collection of eye-popping prop tricks have earned Wes a world-wide reputation for a tornado-like approach to comedy. He is easily one of the most exciting acts on the comedy circuit.
The second act Steve N Allen, has a warm and upbeat act ranging from an observational look at life to up to date topical comedy.
Steve’s stand-up has taken a path through being a BBC New Comedy semi-finalist, Laughing Horse New Act finalist and Amused Moose Hot Starlet, on to performing at The Comedy Store, The Glee Club, Leicester Square theatre and The Comedy Cafe.
He has also performed at several comedy festivals including Edinburgh, Manchester, Leicester, Brighton and Nottingham.
The final act is award winning Seymour Mace, a British comedian, actor and writer, who is best known for playing Steve in the BBC sitcom Ideal, and the second series of Hebburn as music producer, Eric. He starred in the horror comedy Zombie Women of Satan, and appeared in the offbeat comedy film, What Happened After Macbeth.
Comedy night begins at 8pm and tickets cost £10 in advance or £12 on the door. Tickets can be bought via www.roperyhall.co.uk, at the Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660
