THE NOISE NEXT DOOR
Billed as an improvised comedy troupe and performing together since 2005, The Noise Next Door will have you in stitches with their perfect blend of ludicrous characters, witty one-liners, epic stories and musical mayhem. These five slightly posh blokes are based in Brighton, but are touring venues around the world, with their distinctive brand of off-the-cuff humour.
“A very funny bunch of guys… original improv” – Ed Byrne
ADDY VAN DE BORGH
Addy has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the ‘Stand-up Show’ on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on ‘Live at Jongleurs’ and ‘The World Stands Up’ for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions.
“Addy has a brilliant sense of comic timing” – The Independent
Likeable, animated and fluid with a first-rate sense of timing, able to effortlessly maintain an illusion of spontaneity he has a stylish way of slowly building up on his observational premises, wringing every possible laugh out of it. His distinctive and funny take on modern life is performed with great energy, quality and charm.
“Really funny” – Frank Skinner.
MAY MISCHIEF AT THE FAT CAT
Sunday 13th May 2018
When not performing, Simon plies his trade as a very successful writer. He is a principal writer for Lee Mack’s sitcom Not Going Out, the panel show 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Armando Lanucci’s Charm Offensive on Radio 4. He has also written jokes for Lee Mack, Dara O’Briain and Sean Lock. It’s almost a surprise that more people don’t talk about Simon as one of the most popular comedians around. The problem is you’ve probably laughed at one of his jokes without knowing it. Seeing Simon perform will make you realise just how good he is.
“Super-sharp dry wit” – Time Out
Mick is renowned as a fine purveyor of lugubrious surrealism and has quickly established himself as one of the most sought after comics on the British and International comedy circuit. On our TV screens, Mick has recently starred in BBC One’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as Comedy Blue and The Comedy Store for Comedy Central. He made his big screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Looking For Eric – a hit feature film at the Cannes film festival where it was nominated for the prestigious Palm D’Or. A prolific writer, Mick was a writer on John Bishop’s Britain for BBC One and has also previously written for BBC3’s Smalltime.
“Performs with style and conviction…highly enjoyable” – Chortle
Charlie is a one man entertainment machine. He won the Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award in 2009 for his debut solo show and is an in-demand comedian and compere, an actor and a highly acclaimed jazz singer. If Jack Black, Jethro and Frank Sinatra had a son, it would be Charlie. He is unique on the circuit and is rising fast.
“An absolute romp, with some shout-with-laughter moments” – Chortle
**Unfortunately, Dave Johns has had to withdraw from the show due to filming commitments. As soon as we know his suitably qualified replacement we will let you know.
