Lone Star Comedy returns on Saturday September 27th
The line up consists of THE AMAZING MR SMITH, SHELAGH MARTIN, compere TIERNAN DOUIEB, plus a newcomer’s act.
THE AMAZING MR SMITH has been described as Monty Python’s answer to John Williams. His combination of mad inventions and brilliant acoustic guitar playing make him one of the funniest and most original entertainers around. He is the world’s leading eccentric guitarist with funny songs, parodies and props, who can play the Blue Danube on an instrument made entirely of condoms.
" Delightfully eccentric comic musician " - Time Out.
"...Mr Smith is absolutely mesmerizing to watch and side-splittingly funny. He can make music from anything, including contraceptives, and the duelling banjos was a great idea. Mr Smith quite rightly got applause after applause and two well-deserved encores..." part of a review at xsmalarkey.co.uk
"Anyone who doesn’t feel better after seeing The Amazing Mr Smith is probably beyond human help. Any government could save us taxpayers a fortune by making his inspired lunacy available on the N.H.S" Bill Morley, Bromley Little Theatre.
SHELAGH MARTIN is renowned for her crafted one-liners – often surreal, sometimes brilliant, and frequently involving bizarre mental images of animals.
"Sensational. I thought she was one of the funniest, and most refreshing female stand-ups I've seen and I wasn't alone. The audience followed her all the way on her increasingly surreal journey, and laughed their way through every minute of it. It's a joy to watch the way her mind works. Class" – Chortle review
Gigging since 2003 after learning his trade on Dr Oliver Double’s stand-up course at the University of Kent, compere TIERNAN DOUIEB is quickly becoming known as a top MC and rising star on the circuit. With his fast paced energetic style, stupidly unpronounceable name and comedy topics ranging from dancing bears, being diabetic and sometimes Lionel Ritchie, Tiernan is now gigging all over the UK.
"Douieb was energetic, fast paced and his humour was full of kitch appeal and observations about the good and ill of modern British life." bbc.co.uk
