Stand up for Labour - Cheltenham
Stand up for Labour holds its first show in Cheltenham in the Pillar Room at Cheltenham Town Hall (Imperial Square, Cheltenham GL50 1QA).
The night features three of our favourite comedians as well as liquid prizes, a quiz and a raffle.
Lindsey Santoro hails from Birmingham (but don’t hold that against her). She recounts tales of her misadventures in life, all in her trademark down to earth, side-splitting style. She was a big hit with the audience at Stand up for Labour's recent show for Stoke South CLP.
Norman Lovett was one of the pioneers of Alternative Comedy, which saw off the bigoted, ignorant humour on the comedy circuit in the 1960s and 1970s. His deadpan style has been a huge influence on other acts, including Stewart Lee and Jeremy Hardy and saw him picked up for roles in 'The Young Ones' and 'Keeping up Appearances' and his own sitcom, 'I, Lovett'. His most notable TV role came in the cult sci-fi series 'Red Dwarf', in which he played the computer, 'Holly'. He has been a regular perfomer for Stand up for Labour since 2013.
Patrick Monahan is one of the best banter merchants on the comedy circuit and his act has gone down so well with Labour Party crowds that he was winner of Stand up for Labour’s Act of the year. He also won ITV1’s ‘Show me the Funny’, in which millions tuned in and he won with an audience vote.
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.
