All-dayer presented by BrumRadio comedy.
Cherry Reds on John Bright Street in the city centre is set to hold a day of the best comedy Birmingham has to offer, from the presenters of the BrumRadio comedy show. There are compilation shows, new material, Edinburgh Festival 2017 previews, and a gameshow set in Hell, taking place from 12-7pm on Sunday 4th June. All shows are pay what you want, come for one, come for all of them, or pop in and out during the day.
12 noon – Danny Clives and Stu Woodings – WIP. Join Dudley’s Danny Clives – who’s appearing on the highly prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve at Edinburgh 2017 – and Stu Woodings – The Hot Water New Comedian 2015 – as they split an hour to show us their work so far for this year’s festival.
1pm – Jo D’Arcy – Darcehole. Teaching survivor Jo once tweaked a kid’s nipples to get them to behave. In her debut show Jo D’Arcy teaches you what really happens in class when your teacher is a complete and utter D’Archole. Prepare to be power-pointed.
2pm – Lovdev Barpaga – Silly Sausage. Brummie Lovdev Barpaga is returning to Edinburgh as the reigning UK pun champion with his stupidly hilarious new show, Silly Sausage. It’s full of crazy puns, old fashioned jokes, and promises a belly full of laughter.
3pm – Thomas Rackham and Lucy Thompson. An hour’s show from award winning comedians Lucy Thompson (Best Show Nominee – Leicester Comedy Festival 2017) and Thomas Rackham (Best Midlands Comedian Nominee – What’s on Readers Awards 2017).
4pm – Paul Savage is set to Self Destruct. Wolverhampton’s Paul Savage gets himself into a good situation, then blows it all up. So, what is this self-destructive tendency and can he stop it (with jokes)?
5pm – Gareth Berliner – WIP. Comedian Gareth Berliner (Coronation Street’s Macca) is the Essex man who lives in Birmingham and plays a Manc on TV. He brings new work in progress and laughs for fifty minutes of fun. He’ll prove he’s not as nasty as the characters he plays… although apparently his face may say different.
6pm – Hell to Play. Hell to Play is the gameshow set in Hell and hosted by the devil. Join him as he makes two guest comedians compete for their immortal souls in a bad taste show so funny Jim Davidson walked out in disgust.
