An evening of stand-up comedy, music and poetry.

A versatile, funny and hugely likeable performer, Silky has been a favourite on the comedy circuit for years. He describes himself as a comedian, musician, writer and "all the other things people say they do when they don't really have to get up too early"

"A performer whose genuine charm captures his crowd. I urge you to go and see for yourself" ***** Three Weeks
"A very, very funny fella...just brilliant" - John Bishop
"Likeable, laidback Liverpudlian...a natural storyteller with an unforced warmth that unites the gathered group of strangers" - Chortle
"Not only is he funnier than me, but he is also better at the guitar." - Boo Hewerdine

Paul Revill
An extremely likeable act, who tells stories with vivid characters and involves the audience in the fun. Based in Bedford, Paul regularly performs across the country and has enjoyed three full runs at the Edinburgh Fringe. Last year he was a winner of the prestigious Bath Comedy Festival New Act of the Year Competition.

"Bright sparky chappy...a real quick witted geezer...a true professional" ***** Arts in Leicestershire
"Likability and charm assure the audience they are in safe hands" - Chortle

Angie Belcher
Bristol based stand-up poet, actor and writer, Angie has performed at many festivals, supported the likes of John Hegley and Alan Francis, and written for stage, screen and radio. Her live work has been described as funny, poetic, topical, fruity and not for the faint-hearted!

"Like Pam Ayres but with attitude and an adult audience" - Bristol Evening Post
"Bloody Marvelous" - Kate Copstick

They're noisy, messy, embarassing, pains in the bum, and to top it all, they're emotionally clumsy (if not out-and-out needy).

It's about time someone told grown-ups to behave themselves. Who better than kids? A big kid. Silky.

He sounds like a gerbil, looks like a boiled egg and has been making people laugh since before your Mum and Dad were interested in beer/wine/tidying things up.

Contains songs (not rubbish) and talking down to adults. Bring one, if you can find one. No magic, no heartwarming life lessons. No processed sugar, but no tree-hugging hippy druid crap, either.

"Your shirt looks like sick" - Eve, aged 6, Glasgow

"You're silly. Go back to your Mancave and sit quietly" - Naomi aged 7, Chesterfield.

NB Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Price includes chicken nuggets or sausage and chips! (Adults free entry).
