Monday 10th June

In June many people go off on their holidays, including your regular host. In his absence (‘my’ absence – I’m typing this – I made the website and bake all the cakes and cookies too – I do everything but write jokes) he has assembled a pretty ace line-up which he is going to be sorry to miss. It has changed from the previously advertised line-up so please re-apprise yourself of the tastily amended night of comedy.

Randolph Tempest

Peter SlaterA master thespian, Randolph Tempest has appeared in Slaterwood as part of Channel 4’s Comedy Labs as well as an award winning short film, The Misadventures of Randolph Tempest, which you can watch here, on the Tube of You’s. Tempest is the creation of Peter Slater who appeared alongside Johnny Vegas and previous Square Hole headliner Seymour Mace in BBC3’s Ideal. He’s terribly funny, exquisitely presented and possesses the most fierce wit in theatre and probably all of the arts combined. Your absent host highly recommends you indulge yourself with his thespy intellect.

Fern Brady

Fern BradyAs a journalist reviewing comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Brady penned an article exploring her own attempt at stand up – how hard could it be? – and found it wasn’t as hard as some of those she reviewed made it look. She later moved to the North of England where she continued journalism and being funny, and now her writing can be found in The Guardian and her stand up can be found up and down the country and, gladly, at the Red Deer. She possess the kind of raw, intellectually incendiary Scottishness that fuelled their Enlightenment and will leave the Union sadly lacking should they do the sensible thing and leave us to the Tories, and she’s very funny with it.

Lewis Charlesworth

Lewis CharlesworthLewis has made very welcome appearances at Square Hole in the past and is a proper funny comedian and all that. More funny than your usual host for definite, so enjoy him while you can as Rich (me – I’m still writing this) will be back next month with the baked goods. In the meantime the proceedings will be expertly expedited by one of the most enjoyable stage presences on the comedy circuit.
