SATURDAY 25 JULY - SOLD OUT
Laugh In The Park are delighted to have one of the best UK headliners topping the bill as part of our ‘Classic Club’ Saturday line up.
"the magnificent Simon Evans … with his aloof presence and precise, sardonic wit, dripping disdain from every perfectly pronounced word. And what words…” (Chortle)
Seen on Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyres Roadshow and Mock The Week, and a regular on Radio Four Comedy, Evans excels in routines that are adult in the best sense of the word, prompting reviewers to describe him as "demonically dry” (Metro) and “sublime” (The Guardian)
He’s the writer of choice for Dara O Briain, Sean Lock, Jimmy Carr, Marcus Brigstocke and Lee Mack among others. He is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4 as a regular on The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive. Evans has anchored and written seven series of the news satire The Way It Is. He’s also laboured bravely in the face of ultimately overwhelming opposition as part of the Comedians’ team on University Challenge – The Professionals.
Gary Delaney is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. The sheer number of outstanding gags leaves the audience struggling to remember them all.
A regular guest on Mock The Week and with appearances on Dave's 'One Night Stand', Comedy Central's ‘The Comedy Store’ and 'Comedy Blue', and on Channel 4’s ‘Robert’s Web’. He has also been on Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’, Radio 5’s ‘7 Day Saturday’ and Radio 2’s ‘Russell Kane’s Whistle-Stop Tour’.
Not for the feint hearted but so rollickingly funny we have to urge you to come and see him - Delaney churns over massive amounts of material, all toe-curlingly dry one-liners and punchlines that just keep on coming.
Star of Stand Up For the Week and Campus (C4), Live at the Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week and Twenty Twelve (BBC), Sara was nominated for best comedy show at the 2014 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards and was winner of the 2014 Chortle Breakthrough Award. With a comedy brain that leaps from stimulating arguments onto abstract confabulation with lumpy doses of openness, honesty and earnestness, Sara Pascoe is a truly exciting talent and destined for the silver screen.
"Pascoe’s lively mind teases out big questions with intelligence, silliness and self-deprecation" (The Guardian)
"Always clever and sometimes exquisite" (Independent)ing.
Critically acclaimed comic, internationally famed meme & wonderfully nice gentleman, "Nish Kumar is a comedian, and a bloody good one at that" (Time Out). Nominated for the 2015 Best Compere Award by industry website Chortle, Nish has achieved huge success on the stand-up circuit and TV appearances on The Alternative Comedy Experience for Comedy Central & curated by Stewart Lee, Live at the Comedy Store (Paramount), Live At The Edinburgh Festival (BBC Three), Sweat The Small Stuff (BBC Three) and Alan Davies As Yet Untitled (Channel Dave).
‘Slick, sharp and with oodles of charm.’★★★★ (Time Out)
‘Brilliantly executed…. a show that should win Kumar a lot more fans.’ ★★★★ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke)
‘A highly polished, subtly innovative stand-up…. He nails the punchlines over and over again, thanks to taut, economical writing that puts audience pleasure firmly ahead of self-indulgence…. His is a talent worth catching up with.’ (Guardian)
SUNDAY 26 JULY
Squeezing in a festival date in amongst a mammoth national tour, we are thrilled to have Lee headlining our final show.
“The hottest creation since Ali G and Vicky Pollard.” (The Daily Mirror)
Bringing the best of his ‘Suited and Booted' tour material plus selected favourite club classics and (we hope) surprise appearances from some of his other characters, acclaimed character comedian Simon Brodkin’s irrepressible South London alter-ego has become one of the biggest comedy names on TV. Lee Nelson's Well Good Show and Lee Nelson's Well Funny People, numerous guest TV appearances plus hosting and twice appearing as a guest on Live at the Apollo (BBC One) - and released a live DVD – this lively lad is “Never lost for words, never less than ingenious” (The Times)
“As comic inventions go, Simon Brodkin’s south London council estate geezer Lee Nelson is up with the best.” (Daily Telegraph)
“With look, confidence, charm and great material, expect other comics to lynch him” (The Sunday Times)
Tom Deacon has been performing stand-up for the last 7 years. Since winning the Chortle Student Comedy Award in 2007, he has hosted his own BBC Radio 1 show, done some telly (The Rob Brydon Show, Fake Reaction, Dave’s One Night Stand), and followed The World Cup & The Champions League around the world as 'The Eurofan' – notching up over one million views on YouTube.
He’s also “a mighty fine comic” according to The Guardian. In 2013 he performed at the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow for 3 weeks in sold-out 1,000 seater theatres. In 2014 took his solo show 'Get Your Deac-On!' to the Edinburgh Fringe as well as hosting 'Videonation' on Challenge TV.)
CARL DONNELLY (mc)
2013 Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Carl has been performing stand-up since 2005 and is one of the UK’s most exciting young comedians. His conversational, silly sense of humour has won him a host of awards (Edinburgh Best Newcomer nominee, Chortle Best Newcomer, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year) and TV appearances on Mock The Week, Russell Howards Good News Show and Stand Up For The Week.
"Excellent, fast-rising comic with pacy anecdotal routines" (Sunday Times)
