April: A Spring Feast of Quirky Comics

Sunday 10 April 2016 @ The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Seems to be a theme of long haired bearded men this month, but check out how each of these quirky chaps are so different…

Glenn Wool

GlennWool

Glenn began his comedy career in his hometown of Vancouver in 1995. He moved to London in 1998 and quickly became one of the rising stars of the London and international comedy circuit. Despite his shaggy laid back appearance, don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He’s an intelligent comedian who focuses on Religion and Politics but with a simply universal approach.

Glenn is a regular TV face having made appearances on The World Stands Up, Comedy Blue and Edinburgh and Beyond for Comedy Central, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, and the  BBC Stand Up Show.

“Effortlessly funny with an affability that other comics can only dream of – You have to go and see Glenn Wool. ” The Guardian.

Eric Lampaert

Another quirky act for you! French-born, Belgian-raised Eric was a finalist in the Amused Moose Laugh Off competition 2008. But since 2008, Eric’s play-dough face and weird grasshopper legs have been used on the stand up comedy circuit. And sometimes his face gets on the television, which can cause quite a stir. Some people think his face is CGI. It’s not. That’s his actual face and he loves it.

“QUIRKY WITH AN EYE FOR THE ABSURD AND A COUPLE OF NEAR-IZZARDIAN FLOURISHES… ENERGY IS SUCH THAT IT’S ALMOST OSMOTIC” – THE STAGE

Matt returns to the Fat Cat and we cannot wait for this cheeky Sunderland born chap to once again grace us with his mastery of sarcasm. He has lots of energy and is rather like a Mad Hatter, there’s nothing not to like!

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.”

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.
