The Very Best in Stand Up 2016

The Very Best In Stand Up”returns to Nantwich Civil Hall on Friday, 7th october, for the second show in a brand new season of comedy.

Octobers compère is Dave Johns, who makes his welcome return to the market town.

As well as being a successful stand up, He has also appeared on Never mind the Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 cats and Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive.

Johns also plays the title role in the upcoming Ken Loach film, I, Daniel Blake, which has already won the most prestigious award at Cannes, the Palme d'Or. The film is set for UK release October, 21st.

The evenings first act comes all the way from Australia and is perhaps quite literally the biggest stand up comic you will ever see. Colin Cole is a 6'7" comedian and actor who the New York Times described as “One of the most exciting performers to come out of Australia since skippy.” Cole is a familiar face on Australian television and has extensively toured the US and Canada. Now it's the UK's turn to enjoy his fast paced topical and observational humour. This will be his Nantwich debut.

Next on the bill we see Angela Barnes return to take the stage. Angela began her stand up career in 2009 and only 18 months later won BBC Radio 2's new comedy award. She has also written and appeared on BBC radio 4's The News Quiz. Television appearances include Mock The Week, Russell Howard's Good News and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled and, of course, appearing alongside Romesh Ranganathan and Simon Evans on Channel 4's "Stand Up For The Week".

The final act of the evening will be fan favourite Andrew Ryan, who we last saw in Nantwich December 31st, 2014, when he helped ring in the new year. He has performed stand-up on BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Best of the Edinburgh Festival Live on BBC3, Live at The Comedy Store for Comedy Central, & Live for MIND on Comedy Central.

Andrew’s quintessentially Irish story telling abilities and friendly demeanour make him an enjoyable, and natural observational stand up. He has been a must see fixture at the Edinburgh fringe since 2012, having received rave reviews with each years show.

Mayor's Christmas Charity Dance

Marking the fifth year that the New Years Eve Comedy Special has taken place and, as ever, the evening isn't short on talent. The night consists of four hilarious stand ups who in turn will take centre stage from 8pm onwards.

The comedy itself will come to an end at 10:30pm when a dancefloor is created, The bar remains open until 12.30am, and a DJ will provide an enjoyable mixture of music to keep the party going. There will also be a photo booth once again, so grab a prop, strike a pose and smile! The photos will then be made available online for guests to save and share.

The evenings compere will be Jonathan Mayor. You probably couldn't find a more perfect all round entertainer and he's always a popular draw at the Nantwich shows. Jonathan has been on the circuit for over a decade now. He has a larger than life personality and is a fantastically articulate improviser.

First up Danny Ward brings his unusual, engaging and clever style of comedy back to Nantwich. Danny has been travelling the country entertaining us all since 2008. He was a finalist in the prestigious Amused Moose new act competition and has regularly hosted many heats in the So You Think You're Funny? Competition.

Next Rudi Lickwood will take to the stage. Rudi has been handing out laughs to audiences now for over 25 years. With a super confident, playful, charismatic demeanour, Rudi has built an impressive career on the circuit as well as an interesting list of television and radio work. It's impossible not to find this man charming.

The final act of the evening is Andy Askins. Andy may look mild mannered but don't let that fool you. He is a wry, cheeky and at times a rather dark comic.. As well as delivering sharp lines Andy also performs a selection of offbeat original comic songs as well as a number of amusing parodies. A talented musician with a captivating voice, Andy won't let you down.
