UK Comedy Tour 2010
Best Medicine Management (formerly known as Good Sense Of Humour) are delighted to announce the first national tour for Radio 4, Five Live and Sky TV regular: JAMES SHERWOOD.
“gloriously pedantic and quite brilliant” The Scotsman
With TV and radio credits ranging from Radio 4’s flagship comedy shows ‘The News Quiz’ and ‘The Now Show’, through to 6Music’s ‘Jon Richardson Show’ and BBC2’s ‘Mock The Week’, James Sherwood is one of the country’s foremost young comedy writers and performers. He is also the creator and head writer on Radio 4’s brand new topical panel show ‘I Guess That’s Why They Call It The News’, and makes regular appearances on the ‘Richard Bacon Show’ (Five Live) and Sky TV’s ‘Evening Press Review’.
“elegant, intelligent stand-up” The Guardian
Having recently completed his fourth sell-out Edinburgh run, James has firmly established himself across the country and has a dedicated fan base that return year on year to see his latest show. Always accompanied by his trusty keyboard, he eschews the well-worn path of song parodies and changed lyrics, in favour of original compositions and delightful, self-contained ditties.
“savage satire” Sunday Times “fantastic” TimeOut
“piercing” Evening Standard “sharp, precise and ingenious” Chortle
He’s been compared with Bill Bailey, Marcus Brigstocke, Richard Digance, Tim Minchin and Richard Stilgoe, whilst creating a name and a niche of his own.
Tickets £8, £7 Children £4
An intriguing mix of gypsy jazz, flamenco, jazz and contemporary classical influences, TG Collective was born in Autumn 2006, built around the core of guitarists Jamie Fekete and Sam Slater, alongside the unusual combination of flutes, violin, double bass, trumpet, clarinet, cajón and percussion.
Creating ‘an exciting, sensuous sound’, TGC perform original music and arrangements, touching on influences as varied as Paco de Lucia, Django Reinhardt and JS Bach, and have built up a strong following with their intense live performances. The band is completed with the double bass and trumpet of Percy Pursglove; flautist Holly Jones; Louis Robinson on violin, Lluis Mather’s clarinet, and cajón/percussionist Joelle Barker, with interchanging shapes of ensemble within a performance.
