Stand up for Labour - Harrow
A fantastic show sponsored by Unite the Union for Harrow East Labour Party, featuring three top performers and guest speaker John McDonnell MP.
The evening takes place at Pinner Village Hall (Chapel Lane, HA5 1AA), which has ample parking and is only five minutes walk from the underground station.
The line up includes:
Patrick Monahan, who blends a high energy comedy style with hilarious and engaging topical and observational material. Known for working a room, Patrick was winner of the 2011 ITV1 series ‘Show Me The Funny’, Patrick has gone on to appear in 'Splash!', 'Celebrity Squares', ‘Comedy Annual’, ‘Daybreak’, ‘Loose Women’ and ‘The Wright Stuff’. He is a former Stand up for Labour Act of the Year and is much loved by Labour audiences.
Maddy Carty, a former BRIT school student whose soulful voice and socially conscious lyrics set her apart as a singer/songwriter. Maddy's debut album 'Come and Get it' received rave reviews and support from Radio 1xtra, BBC6 and BBC London among many others. She has supported Norman Jay and Madness at House of Fun Festival, played The Brooklyn Bowl with Maxi Priest and performed at venues such as Ronnie Scott's, The Troubadour and The Scoop for More London Festivals. Maddy's first album, 'Come and Get It' has received support from Radio 1xtra, BBC6 and BBC London amongst many others. Her new feature track 'Got No Love' has been championed by Mistajam and DJ Target on Radio 1. Her haunting vocals form part of the 2017 General Election reggae single 'Take the Stage'.
For more than 30 years, Ian Saville has been presenting his Marxist Magic and ventriloquism. Whereas David Copperfield is content with little tricks like making the Statue of Liberty disappear, Ian aims at the much more ambitious goal of making International Capitalism and exploitation disappear. This may be an ambitious goal, but Ian has succeeded in mesmerising and bringing laughter to Stand up for Labour audiences in London, Bolton, Blackpool, Ipswich, Doncaster and Saltburn-by-the-Sea.
Hosting this incredible line up is Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour and has now organised over 250 shows in six years. Crispin was once a runner-up at the prestigious Hackney Empire New Acts competition and went on to appear on Paramount Comedy Channel’s ‘The World Stands Up’. He has also appeared on ‘Daily Politics’ and ran the ‘#JC4PM’ variety tour.
The evening also features liquid prizes and a raffle.
There are only a limited number of tickets available, costing £10 (if bought before 17 February)/£12 (in advance) and £15 on the door.
