Have your say

The Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club is going from strength to strength as many that have attended will know.

Last months show was a fantastic evening of comedy with Paul Foot heading the bill with his own style of imaginative comedy. But hold on to your hats because this month’s show promises to be a side splitting laugh fest with four top class comedians wending their way to our club from the Edinburgh Festival.

First up will be Gary Delaney who appeared last year in Edinburgh in the Laughing Penguin Showcase and Get Happy in Edinburgh.

If you have heard a joke at work or when out and about the odds are this guy has written it, he is one of the most prolific comedy writers on the circuit as well as doing a high energy fast routine in which he tells so many jokes you have to be on your toes to keep up with the humour. Gary regularly plays all the big clubs including The Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Komedia, Glee, Rawhide, The Frog and Bucket, Hyena, Baby Blue, The Stand, Comedy Café, Lee Hurst’s Backyard, Banana Cabaret and various clubs throughout the UK.

For something a bit different the second act is Wayne Shakespear, also known as Wayne the weird a comedy magician, whose close up magic and comedy routines will have you in stitches whilst wondering how he did it. He is rapidly becoming a big favourite on the circuit and for corporate functions.

The headliner for the evening is Trevor Lock.

One of the most original acts in comedy, particularly noted for his ability to improvise, his unique brand of high energy stand up, mixing cleverly crafted wordplay with stream of consciousness ad-libbing has gained him a worldwide cult following. He is particular adept at dealing with hecklers.  His raucous weekly comedy showcase Trevor Lock’s Philosophy Society ran for 18 months to sell out audiences in Leicester Square. He has toured the UK supporting both Stewart Lee and Russell Brand.

As well as acting in Channel 4’s Bafta nominated and British Comedy Award winning Star Stories, Trevor also writes plays; Travel Sick and Something You Should Know have both aired on BBC Radio 4’s Afternoon Play slot. What You Really Want, All By Myself and Friday and Night At The End of The World were all very successfully produced on The Edinburgh Fringe to both critical and audience acclaim. From 2006 to 2007 Trevor was a key member of Russell Brands chart topping BBC radio show and podcast where he played the character of “Cocky Locky”.

In November 2007 Trevor followed the footstep of The Dalai Lama, Henry Kissinger and Kermit the Frog when he was invited to address the world famous Oxford Union.  He spoke on ‘The Meaning Of Life’ and refuted Descarte’s maxim ‘Cogito ergo sum’ by tipping a glass of water over his head.
