Stand up for Labour - Wheatley, Thursday 13th December, 7:30pm (advanced tickets)
A fantastic comedy line up at the Merry Bells
Stand up for Labour holds its first show in Wheatley, Oxfordshire, for the Northern Villages Branch of Henley CLP.
Taking place at the Merry Bells (High Street, Wheatley, Oxford OX33 1XP), the night features three hilarious acts with a mix of comedy styles.
Ash Hennessy has been described as ‘the love child of Siouxsie Sioux and Jeremy Corbyn' (Oxford Hall of Shame) thanks to her scathing analyses of the current state of affairs in conjunction with her dark yet optimistic sense of humour. Ash enjoys making comedy for people who enjoy the humour of their own everyday subjugation; she hopes to have sparked at least a small revolution by 2020. ‘Ash is a star’- Oxford Mail. ‘Ash brought the house down’- Oxford Times
Patrick Monahan is one of the best banter merchants on the comedy circuit and his high energy act has gone down well with Labour Party crowds all over the country. He won ITV1’s ‘Show me the Funny’, in which millions tuned in and voted for him. He has since put on sell-out shows at Edinburgh and appeared on several TV shows (including 'Celebrity Squares' and 'Splash!')
Norman Lovett is one of the most influential comedians in the country, who has developed his own style of comedy since the 1970s. He once warmed up for Punk band ‘The Clash’ and is well known for appearing as ‘Holly’ in cult TV sitcom ‘Red Dwarf’. He has gone down a storm with Labour Party audiences and is the Stand up for Labour Act of the Year.
The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, former runner up in the Hackney Empire New Acts competition, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2012 to raise morale for the Labour Party, he has now organised over 250 shows in England, Scotland and Wales. Third cousin of the cricketer Andrew Flintoff.
The night also includes liquid prizes and a raffle.
Tickets cost £10 if bought before 5th December/£12 in advance/£15 on the door.
