Last night I was interviewed by Martyn Williams on Radio Derby about notable comedians that I’d seen in the area. Here is a list of comedians and new nights that I managed to mention:
Rhod Gilbert – secret gig at the Blessington Carriage
Simon Lomas – the greatest rising comedy star in the country
Scott Bennett – similar to Peter Kay, but better with more appetite for comedy
Andrew Bird – the best story teller comedian in the country
Phil Carr – dark and edgy, unbroadcastable on Radio Derby, Masai Graham – seen pensioners laughing at his dark material.
Steff Todd – compering in Ripley on the 19th, one liner artist, Phil Pagett and her must have very funny conversations
Mo Haroon – headlining in Alfreton, good writing
Jon Pearson – running a showcase for comedy nights
New nights mentioned:
I’m on from 39 minutes or so in and can be found here on BBC Radio Derby.
Thanks to Graham Newcombe for sending me the link and big thanks to Martyn Williams for having me on.
