Stand up for Labour - Barrow and Furness
Stand up for Labour is putting on a fantastic show for Barrow and Furness Labour Party, sponsored by the RMT.
Taking place at The Laurel & Hardy Museum (Brogden Street, Ulverston LA12 7AH), the night features music, comedy and Socialist magic!
Cabinet of Millionaires front man Pat Fulgoni has sung across a wide range of genres from blues to festival dub, jazz to psychedelia. Most recently he has been flexing his vocal muscle with festival headlining "drum and bass" artists such as Camo & Krooked, London Elektricity, Technimatic, Logistics, The Vanguard Project and dance labels including Hospital, Ram, Shogun Audio and Spearhead. He’s toured the planet with various live acts across the USA, China and throughout Europe and his compositions have been licensed to hit US TV series including Dirt, Weeds and John From Cincinnati. His activism dates back to the 1990s, when he organised the No Compromize CD against the introduction of tuition fees and collaborated with Tony Benn.
Don Biswas had a fantastic Edinburgh Festival following a number of years on the comedy circuit. His show, 'Left wing conspiracy theorist with dyspraxia' was not only hilarious but very well received by critics. Don is also an active member of the Labour Party in Wimbledon and has performed at Stand up for Labour shows in Basildon, Maidstone and at the Labour Party Conference.
Stand-up comedian and playwright Stan Wallace is a Labour activist from Liverpool who has created a buzz around the political content in his act. This summer saw him take a show to Edinburgh and is making his Stand up for Labour debut.
Headline act Ian Saville is the only Socialist Magician in the Magic Circle. Ian has been performing political fundraisers for over 30 years and combines magic with comedy and ventriloquism. He has gone down a strom at Stand up for Labour shows in Chiswick, Bolton, Liverpool, Ipswich, Blackpool, Enfield, Broxtowe, Harrow, Bishop Auckland, Middlesbrough and Saltburn. Expect the unexpected!
The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2012 and has now put on over 250 shows across England, Wales and Scotland. In that time he has booked over 150 performers and raised over £200,000 for the Labour Party. He is the third cousin of the cricket player Andrew Flintoff, but has never met him.
The night also features liquid prizes, a quiz, a raffle and plenty of time to catch up with comrades.
Tickets cost £10 before 22nd November/£12 in advance/£15 on the door.
