John is a comic who should need no introduction. Having been a regular compere at Travestees for many years John has since left the West Country for London where his career in comedy continues to blossom. John began his stand up career in 2005 after reaching the semi-finals of So You Think You’re Funny at the Edinburgh Festival after only a handful of gigs. In addition to his stand-up success John has a flourishing on-screen career having graced the likes of 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Russell Howard’s Good News, Live At The Comedy Store and Alan Davies’ As Yet Untitled. We’re delighted to be able to have him back here, this time to close the season.
“Comedy in its rawest form: one man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show” ***** – ThreeWeeks
Acclaimed stand-up comic and accomplished TV writer Meryl revels in her bitterness. A potty mouthed potty trainer, she has delighted comedy audiences, written some of the best gags on telly and even hosted pop concerts (the last one to 12,000 people!) She supported Frankie Boyle for his last tour, at his request and in his book Work!Consume!Die! he calls Meryl “Inspiringly funny”. Meryl’s cheeky routines of dysfunctionality get her choice gigs with major clubs up and down the country so it’s an honour to have her at Travestees.
“Her devastatingly direct show stands out for its bold, boundary-breaking nature…the shocking casualness of her delivery is spot on.”**** – Jewish Chronicle
Comedy magician and general goofbag El Baldiniho comes to town with his latest set of under-rehearsed magic japes. Prepare to be amazed by his lack of magical prowess, gaze in wonder as he stops half way through tricks to read the instructions and marvel at his inability to remember a simple script. As seen in major comedy clubs and music festivals throughout the UK, EL Baldiniho is sensitively portrayed by TV comedy sketch actor Jason Mannion, as featured in John Bishop’s Britain, The Mad Bad Ad Show and Roy Chubby Brown’s Who Ate All The Pies?
“A fun-filled sold-out success” – Canterbury International Festival
Back by popular demand, this time as MC, is the delightful Troy Hawke. Milo McCabe’s latest comic incarnation is quite superb. Troy is an RP speaking, cravat wearing 1940s dandy who is on an admirable mission to change the world. He is a lovable fool with a dash of sophistication. Also he’s blisteringly funny. When a comic says he has ‘audience badinage’ you know you are in for a treat. Question is, will he be bringing his feather?
“Consummately entertaining and enviably talented.” – Broadway Baby
