The Burwell Carnival Committee are pleased to announce that their popular comedy evening returns on Saturday 25th March, 7.30-11pm
Over 18s only - though we try & keep the programme as clean as possible!
Licensed Bar - so please don't bring own alcohol, which infringes our license & also undermines our fundraising efforts!
Venue: Mandeville Hall, Burwell Doors open from 7:30pm
Tickets are £10 (must be paid within 10 days of booking, or tickets will be released for resale) or £12 on the door. However due to the popularity of the event it is highly recommended to purchase NOW to avoid disappointment!
At no additional fee, a table of 8 can be reserved, however please note that as a table seats 8 people, the Carnival reserve the right to fill the table with other ticket holders.
Please book by emailing Alison (preferred) or call her on 01638 602541.
Once again we've an exciting line-up of Compère & Comedians:
Compere: Sam Russell - "I once did stand-up age 5 at a family friend's birthday and got shouted at for being too mean to the guests. I was so traumatised I took an 18 year gap from comedy! I like to talk to the crowd, excite people and get the energy in the room up as high as humanely possible."
Closing/Headline Act: Kevin Precious - A stand-up comedian, MC, promoter and former teacher. He has performed his stand-up comedy routines at top venues all over the country. Combining his stand-up with tales of his former exploits as a teacher, he toured the nations’s arts centres and theatres with a show entitled ‘Not Appropriate’. More recently, he has been performing the show at teacher conferences, and in schools. He is also the co-founder and regular compere at a variety of ‘Barnstormers Comedy’ venues.
Opening Act: Meryl O'rourke - Acclaimed stand-up comic and accomplished TV writer Meryl O'Rourke, 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!) - Mandeville Hall should be a breeze!
