CASTLE COMEDY @ CHESFIELD DOWNS GOLF CLUB
FRIDAY JANUARY 31ST
A classic mixed bill of comedy with TV names & UK circuit favourites!
RICKY GROVER is quite literally and in more ways than one, one of the biggest names in modern British comedy. Born and bred in the East End of London, Ricky was an ex-champion boxer and hairdresser before taking the comedy scene by storm.
He is an award-winning writer, comedian, as well as an acclaimed actor appearing as Andrew on Eastenders (BBC 2011) and as the lead role in his 2011 film ‘Big Fat Gypsy Gangster’.
His numerous TV credits include Porridge, Zapped and Red Dwarf, as well as co-starring in cult BBC2 series ‘Orrible’, written by and starring, Johnny Vaughn. His best-known and loved character role is Bulla – who was the star of the 11 o’clock show and even interviewed by Michael Parkinson on his chat show!
“The funniest person I’ve ever seen”- The Independent
JOHN NEWTON is known for his inventive writing, covering a massive spectrum of subjects from the surreal to the hard hitting, yet still managing to remember that "the gag" comes first. In that respect, he's an old-fashioned gag teller/writer and proud of it. If you want jokes, John is your man!
“John Newton does not require gimmicks or stage characters as he has something more valuable to any comedian, good old fashioned solid gags” - funny.co.uk
LOVEDEV BARPAGA was the UK Pun Champion 2017! Lovdev, aka 'Pun'jabi Warrior', was named the witty winner at the UK Pun Championships at the Leicester Comedy Festival. His award winning set of jokes is sure to bring the house down.
