Event description

Description

PizzaExpress Live is very proud to launch a new series of stand-up comedy shows in our Holborn venue. Performers are drawn from the very best UK club comedians - many of whom are award-winners. Each night will feature three performers. Whether you've come to see someone in particular or are just curious to see a comedy show, every one of the comedians we are presenting is hugely experienced and has sold out shows in their own right.

Kai Samra has quickly risen to become one of the most exciting acts on the circuit today. Combining an edgy stage presence and a confident delivery, he talks frankly about issues such as class, race and modern culture from an intelligent and fresh perspective. Within his first nine months he won the Up the Creek Blackout Competition three times, was a Finalist in the Bath Comedy Festival New Act Competition and a Semi Finalist in the Amused Moose Laugh Off 2017. He has recently opened for Paul Chowdhry at Watford Colosseum Arena in front of 2000 people, performed a sold out showcase at Soho Theatre as part of the Soho Young Company, gigged professionally with people like Sara Pascoe, Nish Kumar, Dane Baptiste and now gigs regularly at Top Secret Comedy, Up the Creek and Angel Comedy club. A unique voice in the comedy industry he is unafraid to tackle lazy stereotypes perpetuated by comedy. This has led him interviewed live in studio at the BBC Asian Network and also to be featured on BBC Radio 4.

Musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan present a brand-new hour of dark, witty songs. As heard on Radio 4’s Fresh From the Fringe and from their viral hit song The 2016 Song which received has received over 50 million views online. Amused Moose Comedy Award 2016 finalists and Best of the Fest Selection 2016 at Montreal Sketchfest. ͞Intricately crafted, flawlessly performed numbers will have you howling with laughter one minute, wiping away a tear the next. **** (The Telegraph).

"A night that I won’t soon forget ...an absolute must see' ***** (AYoungerTheatre.com).

Jack is probably the only stand up on the circuit with a degree in Chinese. What a waste. After excitedly stumbling his way around the stand up and sketch circuits, performing at nights for CKP, Knock 2 Bag, the Invisible Dot and the BBC Comedy Tent in Edinburgh, Jack then went on to support James Acaster on the UK tours of Edinburgh Award-nominated shows Prompt and Lawnmower.

In 2014 Jack performed in the prestigious Comedy Zone as well as performing on the Free Fringe as one half of sketch duo Twins. Jack had previously performed as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve and in double-header Your New Mild Friends. Jack first appeared at the Festival as part of critically acclaimed student sketch group Leeds Tealights named Best Student Sketch Group in 2010.
