Comedy At The Poets in Hove returns on Friday 31st January with fireball headliner SUSAN MURRAY! PLUS South Coast Comedian of the Year 2019 DINESH NATHAN, bedtime ‘Animal’ of the year ALEX MASON, tremendously funny any day of the year SAM MIDDLETON and back due to hilarity within a quarter of the year JOSHUA MAYS. Your host is MICHAEL MOONEY.
A stonking line-up, so start your year as you mean to go on with a giant comedic mushroom cloud.
Multi-talented and a seasoned regular on the circuit, Susan has emerged as one of the best female stand-ups in the UK. As a comedian, writer, presenter and actress - her talent, warmth and razor-sharp wit are winning over new audiences for her growing fan base. She is in the Top 100 Huffington Post funny women Tweeters and was short listed for the BBC’s year long comedy writing bursary, whilst also receiving a writing bursary from the BBC Northern Comedy Dept. She’s wrote for and was a guest on 'Jeremy Hardy Talks To The Nation' and has also starred in 'Stephen K Amos’ Idiots Guide' - both for Radio 4. Susan has also written several solo shows to much success at the Edinburgh Festival as well as performing in plays there. She also co-presents with Ninia Benjamin on a monthly East London Radio show called 'You Have Been Warned'. Susan performs for promoters and clubs all around the UK and Europe as well as in places such as Qatar, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, China, Malaysia, Indonesia.
Fasten your seat belts for a darkly hilarious and deliciously bumpy ride into the world of Susan Murray. ‘Anyone who loves the work of Sarah Millican and Kerry Godliman will find plenty to enjoy here’ (The Guardian).
“Susan Murray’s baffled everywoman persona cloaks a dry, intelligent wit.”, Stewart Lee
“A feisty comedy fireball of fun”, Time Out
“Went on to prove that she is also one of the funniest women in Britain as she enthralled us all with her feisty Wolverhampton wit.”100% Biker Magazine
“She has the mentality of a spiteful 14 yr old boy! Very admirable in a young lady!”, Arthur Smith
Dinesh Nathan has been making growing waves in the South East Comedy scene over the past two years and in June, picked up the title of South Coast Comedian of the Year 2019.
Definitely one to watch live before you see him on the telly soon.
His jokes are even funnier than his laugh and all round jolliness. And that is jolly.
Joshua Mays is a Crawley born stand-up comedian based in London. His style is reminiscent of your mate holding court in the smoking area of an after party you weren’t invited to, no one knows who he is or how he got on this topic but he’s definitely about to say something stupid. Having only been in comedy under a year, Joshua has already been sighted as an emerging talent from the open mic scene placing in various competitions and most recently being shortlisted as a semifinalist for the Komedia New Comedy Award.
