October’s autumnal instalment at the Red Deer brings gale-force wit with a chance of sing-alongs, and as usual it’ll be raining cake and cookies. Thankfully that’s a meteorological metaphor and baked goods will only land on you if you’re a baddie. Otherwise you can just scoff them before giggling at the following:
One of the finest comedians you may not have heard of, the Liverpudlian-in-exile made it to the finals of the BBC New Comedy Award alongside Daniel Kitson, Lee Mack and Julian Barratt on his fourth gig and has been a full time comedian for half his life. Unsurprisingly, he’s a bit of a natural who combines his considerable musical talent with idiosyncratic banter and quick-witted charm, and is capable of filling a room with so much warmth and energy that he could probably replace fossil fuel.
