Stand-Up Comedy March

22nd Mar 2011 - 8:00pm

The Arts Centre

Stand-up Comedy in the Rose Theatre with Audience favourite  Jollyboat plus Bryan Lacey, Nina Gilligan and Chris Conroy.

Tickets: £7 / £5 concessions / £2 Edge Hill students

Headliner: Jollyboat

Returning to the Rose Theatre, Jollyboat are Tommy and Ed Croft, brothers and best friends,
who write very funny songs on any topic – X-Factor, keyboard shortcuts,
pirates, and school bullying: they are genuinely brothers, not a gay couple in
disguise! They received five star
reviews at Edinburgh Fringe in both 2011 and 2012 and also in the last two
years they have won the Musical Comedy Awards in London, the Laughterhouse New Act of the
Year, and The Best of Rawhide Raw.

Jollyboat is a musical comedy double act, known for their
Pirate Pop Songs and Jesus Rap.

Bryan Lacey

Since starting out on the comedy circuit in 2007, Bryan has fast become an audience
favourite! With a knack for pulling a punch-line
from the unexpected, Bryan
mixes slick material with some excellent improvisational skills and the
occasional gag filled song.

Nina Gilligan

“A great routine which was laugh out loud funny – Definitely one to
Jojo Sutherland


Chris Conroy

Glaswegian Chris Conroy has carved out a reputation as a comic that just
wants to make audiences laugh and help them to leave with a grin on their face. Chris won the prestigious ‘King Gong’
competition at the Comedy Store in December 2010, supported Tom Stade on last
year’s national tour and regularly performs at all major comedy clubs around
the country.
