The Duke of Comedy - Pro Night (February)

Comedy night in Barrow-in-Furness @ The Duke of Edinburgh

Comedy night is on Thursday 21st February 2019

This night consists of five brilliant and hilarious comedians. There is also an awesome headliner finishing off each gig. The line-up is:

MC - Philip Simon

Philip is one of the most sought after comperes and opening/closing acts working on the UK comedy circuit today. He gigs throughout the UK, as well having performed as far flung places as America, Scandinavia, Europe, The Middle East and New Zealand where he headlined at The Classic in Auckland.

"Philip Simon is never less than hilarious" - The Stage

"With Philip Simon as compere comedy is guaranteed" - The Jewish Chronicle

Opener - Richard Todd

Richard began stand-up in 2011 after his doctor suggested he try a hobby before anti-depressants. After two months gigging he returned to his GP. 'YOU NEED DRUGS!' he declaimed (in a more professional, but less comedic, way).      

"A smart surrealist" - The Independent

"Some comics have a gift of words that touches their work with wonder. Richard Todd is such a comic… A painfully funny show… like finding The Fall guesting on X-Factor" - The Scotsman

"Warm, personal, unique, very funny" - Chortle

Middle Act - Kevin Berry

Kevin's comedy has been described as irreverent, acerbic, gripey and sometimes deep. This popular new comedian tackles the big problems and small annoyances with equal disdain and isn't happy with any of it. There is a lot wrong with life and Kevin Berry thinks it’s his job to point it out. It isn’t.

"Too good" - Jethro

"So funny" - Paul Smith

"Veteran performance" - Chortle

Headliner - Dave Green

Dave Green has been doing stand-up comedy since 2011. Since then his otherworldly persona and paranoid riffs on everyday life have fast proved popular with audiences in the UK and beyond. In 2018 he did his debut stand-up show ‘Melt’ at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. “The show established him as a keen writer who approaches the everyday from a different angle” (Chortle)

“Fantastically original gags” - Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke

"A keen eye for the absurd" - Wee Review

"Highly watchable deadpan style" - What’s on London
