May: Raining Music and Comedy

Sunday 8th May 2016 @ The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Rainer Hersch


Rainer is a musician and comedian who performs on every major comedy stage in Britain and abroad. A trained classical pianist, Rainer began life as an agent to some of the world’s great orchestras – his last official job title was Touring Manager of the London Festival Orchestra. However, unknown to his employers, he had also started appearing as a stand-up comedian on the London comedy circuit. He eventually devoted himself full-time to comedy in 1992. Whatever his role on stage, Rainer’s energy is immediately passed on to his audience and the rapport he generates is boisterous and fun.

Dave Johns


Dave has been a stand up comic since 1989 and is a regular headlining act playing all the major comedy clubs in the UK and comedy festivals world wide. He has worked on stage in the Middle East, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Johannesburg, Sydney, New York, Amsterdam and the Arctic. He is a regular guest on comedy panel shows ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ (BBC2) and ‘8 Out Of Ten Cats’ (C4) and starred in the BBC3 late night sitcom ‘Dogtown’.

Kevin McCarthy


Once seen never forgotten, Kevin is one of the best acts on the UK comedy circuit. With an ever changing act, and the ability to find humour in any subject, Kevin’s cuddly personality and utterly relaxed stage persona puts the audience instantly at ease. An accomplished stand-up comedian, and burgeoning talent as a comic actor, he’s a real coup for any comedy club or corporate event.
