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
with support from Men Are Singing
Start the New Year with a rambunctious and soulful musical experience brought to you by The Rat Affair; a band of musicians, theatre makers and visual artists.
Shifting between sensationally boisterous Eastern European folk and sparse reflective piano works, join The Rat Affair and their unique sound as it enraptures the listener like a rallying call.
“That’s what being in love sounds like – dramatic and blistering and gorgeous”
Sarah Gosling, BBC Introducing
With support from Men Are Singing, a Cornish, all-inclusive, cross-generational male voice choir. Singing songs by Ivor Cuttler, Björk, Talking Heads and some of their own.
It’s the perfect night to shake those New Year’s blues!
An evening of Cornish based folk music from the inimitable Dalla, famous for their compelling dance rhythms and new and traditional singing.
Tickets £8, £7, £4
