Love Stand Up? Fall in Love at February Fat Cat

Sunday 14th February, The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Andre Vincent
Andre Vincent returns once more to revel in the joys of the Suffolk accent and Bury St Edmunds! He last visited us December 2014 and was like a jolly Christmas Santa. He is a proper character who will just make you smile as well as laugh. He has a short snappy quip style and isn’t afraid to lay his real life bare to the audience.  A genuine comedian, if there is such a thing?

Zoe Lyons
A common guest on Mock the Week, Zoe is a wonderfully dark top British Comedienne.
Although most of us like small intimate comedy gigs from time to time, Zoe relishes in large venues, she gets a real “buzz!” With her Psychology degree background it’s hardly surprising she takes this admirable stance on comedy:
“I don’t think that there are any limits to what can be talked about by comedians. We all use humour to get over adversity, grief, fears. I guess it all depends on what the intention behind the joke is.”

Adam Bloom


Quirky and inventive Adam Bloom is pure fun. Check out his virtual Rubik’s Cube on his website, says it all. A fringe favourite with his first show back in 1996 and a constant frequenter following that. Adam knew he wanted to be a comedian since he was 10 years old, and embraces his inner child even now! You may have heard of his successful Radio 4 show ‘The Problem with Adam Bloom.’ He’s certainly unique and not to be missed.

First Fat Cat of 2016!

Beat those January blues with some excellent stand up comedy – 10th January 2016 – The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Our Compere… Roger Monkhouse

With a forte for political satire, Monkhouse is like a naughty school teacher who’s not afraid to accentuate and mock his own baldness with all it’s connotations! A master of banter, this compere will kick off the night but keep the momentum going. His observational comedy will also highlight the frivolity in all things…


“His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind” The Guardian

Supporting…. Sally Anne Hayward


Not one for succumbing to cliché’s Sally Anne Hayward is a fresh comedian. An Edinburgh Fringe favourite, come and revell in her awkward nature, with a hint of spitefulness at times. She’s harsh, but still funny.

Her twitter bio just about sums her up “Can’t tell if she is posh or utterly hammered. Comedian, writer and other such excuse.”

“Clever observations and sharp punch lines.” Three Weeks


Terry Alderton

Another fringe star, described by Tim Vine as ‘the master of voices’ is one you will never forget. He can be a little like Marmite, you will either love him or hate him.  Either way there is a tad bit of weirdness thrown in, and again, not to everyone’s taste but with the right content, you will be in stitches. Only one way for you to find out! Be a true stand up lover and come and judge for yourself!

“It’s all silly dancing, loopy audience interaction and microphone-mauling vocal effects.” The Guardian
