20 Apr Friday 21st & Sat 22nd April : Angela Barnes, Carl Donnelly, Alistair Barrie, George Zack & Mickey P.Kerr
It’s another top-heavy bill of stand-up brilliance this weekend at Banana Cabaret.
“brilliantly funny” –
“She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic”
“Angela Barnes is the best mainstream female comedian I’ve seen since Sarah Millican… I can’t be any clearer than that can I?”
“a beautifully paced performance that was aided by the consistent quality of her jokes, many of which showed a great skill with self-deprecation.”
“Barnes mixes warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes” –
After a career in health and social care, Angela Barnes decided to realise a long held ambition and give comedy a go. Within a couple of years she had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition. Since 2011, Angela and her witty world view have been catapulted onto numerous radio and television shows including appearances on BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), and BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show.
Carl has also appeared on various TV shows including Mock The Week, Dave’s One Night Stand, Stand Up for the Week, Russell Howard’s Good News, Follow The Football, Comedy Store and, most recently, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled.
