Stand up for Labour - Rugby
Stand up for Labour holds a fantastic night of comedy at the West Indian Association (102 Railway Terrace, Rugby CV21 3HE) featuring one of stand-up comedy's legends.
Norman Lovett began his career in comedy as a warm-up act at punk gigs and famously entertained the crowd before 'The Clash'.
His unique, laid-back style soon got him noticed and he became a mainstay of 'The Comedy Store' in London, where he became a big influence on acts such as Jeremy Hardy, Jack Dee and Stewart Lee.
He found fame playing 'Holly' in cult TV sitcom 'Red Dwarf' and has also made numerous other TV appearances (including 'The Young Ones' and 'The Last Resort' with Jonathan Ross).
Supporting Norman on the night are political satirist Njambi McGrath, who recently won the prestigious New Act of the Year award at the Hackney Empire and dry, deadpan Matt Hollins, the only comedian from Leicester to win the Leicester Comedian of the Year.
The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who appeared on Paramount Comedy Channel's 'The World Stands Up' and went on to set up Stand up for Labour.
All profits from the show go to Rugby Labour Party.
Tickets cost £15 in advance (£20 on the door).
