The penultimate A Laugh In Stockport at Seven Miles Out! Which means, ultimately, that you should bring your pens, or something.
Anyway, who have we got on? Randolph Tempest is one of the country’s leading actor-types, and acclaimed by many (mostly himself) as THE master thespian. He's also a writer, director, artist and a poet. He's hard to describe. I once saw him reduce an audience to tears of laughter simply by sweeping the stage at a comedy gig – during the break. Randolph bears an uncanny resemblance to Peter Slater – who has been in all your favourite TV comedy shows (including Phoenix Nights, Ideal, That Peter kay Thing, Saxondale, Detectorists, and, er, Coronation Street). I wonder if Peter and Randolph have ever been seen in the same room together? Hmmm.
Opening the show we have Kate McCabe. An American now resident in the UK, Kate cut her teeth on the NYC comedy scene and blends the observational with the ridiculous. (“She talks about untouched topics, and by that I don’t mean close-to-the-bone subjects, I mean properly untouched topics like Beatrix Potter and gravy.” Jim Meehan, The Skinny)
In the middle bit we have Chelsea Hart, who describes herself as “(Probably) the only operatic, bisexual, Alaskan comedian working in the UK, who is also famous in Bosnia.”
We were saddened at A Laugh In Stockport to hear that Neil Diamond has announced his retirement from touring, but we’re delighted to announce that we’ll be having a special guest appearance from Never Diamond, the world’s worst Neil Diamond tribute act! We can’t wait to say hello again!
Danny Sutcliffe is your delightful compére for the evening and will also be in charge of the pens.
