On Sunday 13th September
the Fat Cat Comedy Club
Ahead of his new tour in October, 'arch surrealist' Boothby Graffoe brings his songs and stories to Bury.
Boothby’s dislikes include name-droppers and people who use celebrity connections to promote themselves in an unrealistic way.
'The funniest man I know' - Omid Djalili
'...it's not fair to call them comedy songs, they are much more than that, there are some I would dare to call genius' - The Times
In the last 13 years JoJo has gone from open spot to late night TV personality, from global fame on the Internet to international comedy performer, not bad going for someone who until then had never stood on a stage in her life.
International performances include two sold out tours of South Africa, Shanghai, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and both the Sydney and Melbourne comedy festivals. Her strong views had her proclaimed a feminist icon in Cape Town, and quite frankly the laid back Aussies wondered what had hit them. Safe to say she made quite an impact!
During the 40-odd episodes of Funny Business that JoJo wrote and presented she made a name for herself as a chat show host of the old school, that is she let the guests do the talking. Fifteen years as a newspaper journalist taught her you get more out of someone if you shut up. Her guests included Jimmy Cricket, Lee Evans, Jo Brand and Rich Hall.
'Raunchy comedienne, very, very, funny' - London Evening Standard
'JoJo Smith is a rollicking good stand-up, but she is also so blue she makes Jo Brand look like one of the nuns in The Sound of Music' - The Independent

Fat Cat on TV!
Did you see the Fat Cat Comedy Club on telly? We were featured on BBC's Comedy Map of Britain. There are a couple of videos of Mark Watson reliving his first TV appearance all those years ago at our very own Fat Cat Comedy Club.
Every month the Fat Cat presents three (sometimes four!) comedians from the national and international comedy circuits, many are new faces, some are rising stars, and a some are old friends paying welcome return visit due to their unbridled popularity.
The Fat Cat Comedy Club has now established a great reputation on the comedy circuit. This is mainly down to the friendly, enthusiastic and slightly odd audiences it attracts. So be a part of it and maintain the Fat Cat Comedy Club as the biggest and best comedy club in the region.
The Fat Cat Comedy Club is at The Apex, Bury St. Edmunds (map here)
Bar opens at 7.00pm, show starts at 8.00pm.
Get there early!
