Funny Bones Comedy Club All shows start at 7.45pm | £9 Our monthly dose of Friday night funnies returns with a mix of seasoned stand-ups and new comic talent. Friday 6 September Featuring Sam Harland’s unique, observational humour, drawn from his working-class roots, alongside Peter Phillipson who’s command of accents, whilst wearing his comedy heart on his sleeve, leaves the audience in hysterics, with Nick Crooks who is the new kid on the block and a typical Yorkshire lad, down to earth and charming. Whilst host MC Rob Coleman is becoming increasingly grumpy with his comedy focusing on (amongst other things) politeness and getting old. Friday 11 October Joe Bromehead is energetic, quick witted and naturally funny making him a solid addition to any bill, with Matt Stellingwerf the fast-rising star on the international scene, finding the humour in topics such as love, mental illness, sex, drugs and serial killers. Keith Wild is the wild by name, wild by nature comedy musician and compere MC Jim Bayes is a frustrated Yorkshire man with a knack for being funny. Friday 22 November Vince Atta is nothing less than a phenomenon, using a multi-track looper to create live on-thespot Hip-Hop/Reggae/Techno/ hilariously fusing it with natural stand-up, together with Rahul Kohli the self-styled Newcastle Brown Male, who has appeared on the BBC’s Big Asian Comedy Night. Miserable beyond his years Chris Copestake has hysterical stories and is Grimsby’s best export since the fish finger. Geordie MC Lee Kyle is in charge of proceedings, which should add a madcap energy to the evening. Line up may be subject to change.
