Description

Nunhead American Comedy Night 18th November 2018

Another phenomenal night of comedy in Nunhead!

STARRING: JOSH HOWIE (BBC Radio 4), ELEANOR TIERNAN (RTE, BBC1), CHUQUAI BILLY & Host and MC LEWIS SCHAFFER


JOSH HOWIE

Howie is brilliantly clever, honest, utterly engaging and absolutely fearless. ★★★★★ The Scotsman

Writer and star of BBC Radio 4’s sitcom Josh Howie’s Losing It, nominated for a BBC Radio Award, Josh is a much in-demand stand-up comic, performing regularly at all the major comedy clubs around the UK. Over the last few years Josh has also taken his distinctive brand of humor to India, Ireland, UAE, France, China, Thailand, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia and America. In 2012, he was invited to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, where he filmed the internationally distributed Just For Laughs All Access TV show.

In addition, Josh has written and performed four solo shows for the Edinburgh Festival, before sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre, and most recently appeared on Dave’s As Yet Untitled with Eddie Izzard, previously recording for two series of the Comedy Central show Comedy Store, and featuring on World Stands Up and Comedy Blue for the same channel. He spent four years as the writer/presenter of The Movie Geek on Sky Movies. Often praised for his writing talent, Josh has contributed features to The Guardian, The Times, and The Daily Mail.

Josh Howie walks the potentially trip-wired ground of race and religious identity with diamond-sharp wit and no small degree of daring. It’s fiercely intelligent, delivered with verve and you can expect to see a lot more of Howie in the future. The Observer

A fabulous storyteller who can make you concentrate in silence then erupt into a fit of giggles. He’s slick, he’s quick and he’s incredibly playful with words. ★★★★★ Metro

It’s refreshing to see someone like Howie tell a wider story about his life while taking comic opportunities at every turn. ★★★★ Independent

Excellent, intelligent stand-up…terrific. Time Out

ELEANOR TIERNAN

“Refreshingly unconventional. Not a cliché in sight.” ★★★★ FringeGuru

Eleanor Tiernan has been entertaining audiences across Ireland, the UK and internationally for many years. Her brilliant deadpan delivery can wrongfoot an audience momentarily, but her sharp wit and unconventional delivery are the perfect foil to material that is completely original and superbly funny.

You might know her from such things as RTE's Irish Pictorial Weekly, Comedy Central's Alternative Comedy Experience, her columns with The Times Online, the National Therapy Project, The Craig Doyle Show, The Savage Eye. Eleanor has also supported many famous names including Stewart Lee, Reginald D Hunter, Tig Notaro, Neil Delamere, Jason Byrne and Ardal O'Hanlon.

LEWIS SCHAFFER

Host, New Yorker and now Nunheader

"Electrifying...a bizarre cross between performance art, a swingers’ party and a papal blessing." Claire Smith, The Scotsman ★★★★★

Lewis Schaffer's 2017 Edinburgh show 'Letters From My Mother' won the 'Experience of the Fringe' Award, given to “the show that provides the most memorable and extraordinary experience at the Fringe, be it good, bad or plain strange."

“Schaffer is disconcertingly terrific. He is compelling, unique and most of all unpredictable.” Bruce Dessau, London Evening Standard

“An hour with Lewis Schaffer is an hilarious, cathartic, exhilaratingly appalling experience.” Kate Copstick, ITV & The Scotsman

“A bloody good laugh and unlike anything else on the comedy circuit. Go see Lewis Schaffer.” Time Out
