Celebrate being fat after christmas with the funniest comedians on the circuitPeter Bazely is back at the Phoenix Artist Club with another joyously mad night of Stand-up Comedy to beckon in the end of what has turned out to be a year of celebrity death and political ‘balls up’ery’ (yes its a word, yes I just made it up).
So as 2016 draws to a close, come and celebrate another pointless year ‘almost over’ by laughing at some of the funniest comedians on the circuit. Let them briefly help you forget about the inevitable end of the world scenario soon to be upon us (you know what with Trump and all that).
It’s becoming somewhat of a tradition this show ‘Fat After Christmas’ and this years line up looks to be even better than last years what with the comedic legend Phil Kay taking the headlining spot.
About the Acts:
Stand-up Comedian Peter Bazely is currently alive, unhappy, and living in London. "...an elegant figure, about 9ft tall and two inches wide with a dinky guitar and an un-flashy confidence" (Chortle)
After placing in the finals of three new act competitions and failing to win any of them, Peter still isn't happy. "...His masterful, self-deprecating, and droll tone brought tears of laughter...” (The Church Times)
Peter describes his act as stand-up comedy with a guitar, but others simply label it a cry for help. “Distinctive stuff...” (Bruce Dessau – Beyond the Joke)
The Comedian Adam Greene took the audience in the palm of his hand; while he mixed flights of fancy with crippling dark personal observations, ending in a good hearted approach to the idea of finding laughter in life's difficulties. (Shameless Self-Promotions)
Comedian Javier Cooks aka Javier Costales see’s life from a skewed angle, its almost like he is performing music when he uses words and sounds to make comedy about everything and nothing. Like some prolific jazz musician his comedy takes you on a ride that no one has ever been on before.
“Surreal flights of fancy and punchlines that spring up from the most unlikely of places. It’s the ramblings of a unique comedic mind” Tickled Pig
Your Headliner Phil Kay is a bit of a comedy legend, especially at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he is mostly carried around on the shoulders of locals and tourists alike for his wit, charm and storytelling prowess. Other comedians bow to him in the street and reverently request punchlines to jokes they haven't yet finished.
But Phil is a man like no other and yet an everyman, you cant help love it and if you've never seen him LIVE then now is the time, you wont regret it.
A dervish of comedic energy, anger, love, remembering’s… Phil cant really be explained on paper so just get your arse down to this gig.
Phil Kay burst on to the comedy circuit in 1989, when he won the new act contest So You Think You're Funny in only its second year.
His unpredictable, freestyle approach won him a Perrier nomination in 1993 and the award for best stand-up at the 1994 British Comedy Awards (Chortle)
