14 May Scurrilous one-liners from Roger Monkhouse, Live at Banana Cabaret Fri 16th/ Sat 17th May
If you haven’t seen the utterly scabrous, deeply funny comedian Roger Monkhouse, then might we suggest a visit to Banana Cabaret this weekend ?
Widely regarded by audiences across the country, Monkhouse (no relation) brings his outstanding banter to the Bedford this weekend, alongside Jo Caulfield, Geoff Boy and Will Franken oin the Friday, with Simon Bligh replacing Will Franken for the Saturday show.
“unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air” Chortle
“packs in more observations on the human condition in a twenty minute set than a whole lecture on Jean-Paul Sartre” Venue Magazine
“an enthusiasm akin to that of an excitable professor who’s just found the gene that would enable a python to grow a beard” Manchester Evening News
“Witnessing a Roger (no relation to the late, great but distinctly orange Bob) Monkhouse gig is a little like watching a dotty old university professor at work. Although much funnier, of course” Manchester Evening News
“Highly regarded by his peers on the circuit – he’s shaven-headed, topical, good, and nothing to do with Bob” Evening Standard
