Having survived Christmas, New Year, a non-pocalypse and possibly Norovirus, it’s time to get back to the monthly routine of being amused with drink in hand and cake in mouth. Below you can peruse the laughter bringers, noting that although the support acts right at the bottom have no blurb attached to them, they are equally treasured and warmly anticipated. Also, a stupid host and silly quiz with probably underwhelming prizes.
Smooth delivery of precision witticism has resulted in O’Sullivan being declared a highlight of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival by The NZ Herald, a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, being featured on Australian TV’s ‘The Comedy Channel’, hosting a sell-out stand-up tour of Croatia, winning Canada’s annual ‘Improvaganza’ Tournament, and in 2012 completing a national UK tour supporting cult Aussie Comic Steve Hughes — so it’s safe to say he’s secured a position as a class act on the comedy circuit.

For nine years Lee Kyle was a professional wrestler. While this was, on the whole, a waste of time, it did allow him the opportunity to see Christian Slater impress two girls by putting on sunglasses in an elaborate manner. Since taking up stand-up in 2009, he has surprised himself by being not that bad at it, which you will have witnessed if you saw him perform at Square Hole a year and a half ago. He’s since impressed more audiences up and down the country and incurred the praise of comedy clubs and critics alike.
