Tonight's Comedians (November 11th)

* Mike Gunn is most notable for his performance on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and for appearing in nine episodes of Al Murray's Time Gentlemen Please. A misspent youth and a series of grim jobs cultivated his cynical outlook on life and a perverse desire led him to the world of stand-up. A self-confessed pessimist, he describes himself as “not a natural choice for a career in laughter”. He has a rare ability to walk close to the line of what audiences find acceptable and yet still remain likable and funny. His reputation for being a bit unfriendly, a touch dark and even morose is really not true. In real life he’s loving, warm and philanthropic. Just a bit misunderstood. 

* Felicity Ward is an Australian comedian, best known for her TV appearances on Spicks and Specks, Thank God You're Here, Good News Week and as a writer and performer in the Channel 10 Network television programme The Ronnie Johns Half Hour. From 2008 she has done several full-length solo stand-up shows at the Melbourne Fringe Festival to popular and critical acclaim, culminating in her winning several awards, including Best Newcomer and Best Local Act.

* Thor Stenhaug is a Norwegian comedian based in London. He regularly performs at some of the biggest comedy clubs across the UK. In 2019 and 2021 he played in sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival: Viking Millennials, and The AngloViking Invasion. A nominee for the British Comedian of the Year competition in 2021. Thor draws on his roots to perform personal and astute observational material, adding a lively energy to any bill with his range of self-deprecating stories, and rapport with his audiences.

* Alon Fellus is a burst of energy, quick wit, and if he's on a roll, he might even dance on stage. His humour varies from dark, to blue, to observational, and some might get offended, but his charm always saves him. Born and raised in Oslo, a big lover of hip hop, which gives him a unique style of joke-delivery.

** Tickets are not refundable unless the event is cancelled.
