In April we hope for less snow and some semblance of sunshine so that coldness and darkness are no longer a constant in our lives. Short of this environmental aspiration being realised, we can only rely on the monthly constant of cake and comedy at the Red Deer, where we shall take the misery and look upon it and laugh. ‘Haha, misery!’ we shall say. Figuratively. That would be a weird gig, if every laugh was followed by the collective chanting of the word misery. Anyway, here’s who’s on:
Bringing a touch of darkness to the comedy circuit, Dan Bland’s morbidly deadpan disposition belies a devilish comic mind that has beguiled countless audiences. Delivering explosive one-liners with razor-sharp precision, this impressively intricate comic mind unfailingly ensures that he is the only person in the room to keep a straight face. If you missed Dan the first time he performed at Square Hole almost 2 years ago this is your chance to make up for your absence (or just your lack of knowledge that the gig existed then).
‘Blistering one-liners’ – The Worksop Guardian
‘Superbly morose one-liners’ – Leeds Student
‘Razor sharp jokes beautifully delivered’ – Paul Sinha
An unemployed Geordie ship yard worker, Sergeant has made a massive impact on the comedy scene with his uncompromising style and razor sharp wit. Take a roller-coaster of a ride through the troubled mind of a very British eccentric who is something of a cult anti-hero on the Northern Comedy Circuit.
‘an emblematic comic hero for our times’ – The Guardian
‘It is a barnstorming act, suggesting he could well be the next Steve Coogan or Rob Brydon, such is his brilliantly nuanced characterisation’ – Steve Bennett, Chortle
