Come and enjoy a night of top comedy with 3 great acts, plus host, put together by award winning Coastal Comedy, right here in your very own Lighthouse. You can bring your friends too and laugh your socks off, it’s better than staying in front of the telly.
Here’s some blurb about our Andy:
Andy Askins is a diminutive figure who exudes an air of vulnerability as he steps up to the microphone armed with a guitar and a cheeky grin. It’s an overwhelmingly misleading demeanour which serves to heighten the impact of the killer lines that he delivers.
Andy has an expertly crafted routine littered with an eclectic mix of offbeat original comic songs and parodies. A talented musician with a captivating voice, popular songs have been re-written and given a perverse twist to tremendous comic effect. With a wickedly dry sense of humour, Andy’s darker material is sweetened by his innocent and impish demeanour which never fails to leave audiences in the palm of his hand.
Since becoming a full-time comedian back in 2005. He has previously had the honour of working with Michael McIntyre, Lee Evans, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Micky Flanagan, Harry Hill, Rhod Gilbert, Bill Bailey and Jack Dee, to name a few stand-up luminaries.
“ALTHOUGH HE LOOKS MILD-MANNERED AND STUDIOUS, HE ACTUALLY PACKS A WRY, CHEEKY WIT. THERE IS, MOST DEFINITELY, SOMETHING WARMLY ALLURING ABOUT HIM. HIS WINNING PERSONA GOES A LONG WAY.” Chortle
Opening the show is the exceptionally funny Luke Honnoraty who is highly regarded as one of the best acts to emerge from the South West in recent years. Award winning stand-up comedian Luke Honnoraty burst onto the circuit in 2010 as the winner of the ‘South West New Act of the Year’ on his 3rd ever gig.
Luke has gone from strength and is now performing alongside the best names in comedy in some if the UK’s best comedy clubs. Having supported the likes of Matt Richardson and Russell Kane in the past, plus Supporting Katherine Ryan on the south west tour dates of 2014. 2017 Luke was tour support for Joel Dommett
Also appearing on the night is Richard James who was a finalist in Foster’s South Coast Comedian of the Year competition. Along with a fondness for the absurd and the awkward details of life, Richard is an unashamed nerd for history and science fiction. The material that he uses stretches from topical humour to bizarre family stories and he’s a great hit with the audience.
The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles.
