We are Back at the Backroom, our beautiful new(ish) venue and now with a regular night of the second Thursday of every month. Once again we have a brilliant headline act for you; this time sees a first CCC outing Andrew O’Neil.Andrew O’Neill is an award-winning stand-up comedian, musician and writer. His distinctive voice and alternative credentials have set him apart and allowed him to carve out a unique place in the comedy world. He has performed in over a dozen different countries, and is at home performing to rowdy weekend comedy clubs as much as to his own cult following.TV credits include Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saxondale, 50 Years Of Rock Excess, The Blame Game, Spicks and Specks and Good News Week. His own Radio 4 stand-up show Pharmacist Baffler won an award.A natural fit at music festivals, he has performed stand-up at Glastonbury, Download, Leeds and Reading, Bloodstock, Latitude, V-Fest and supported Amanda Palmer, Les Claypool and once even the Kaiser Chiefs at the London Palladium. He is a founder member of the Victorian-obsessed punk band The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, whose distinctive anachro-punk gained a cult following and besmirched the stages of music festivals worldwide. O’Neill has written and toured a shit-tonne of solo comedy shows, including Occult Comedian, Winston Churchill Was Jack The Ripper, MINDSPIDERS, Alternative, Andrew O’Neill is Easily Distracted and the current Andrew O’Neill’s Black Magick Fun Hour.Plus the usual support: a professional opener and two up and coming acts in the middle section.And hosting proceedings is everyone’s second favourite compere, known to some as the local celebrity and sex symbol, and to many more as The Other One Who Sometimes Does The Compere Thing But Isn’t Quite Rich Austin: it’s Jed SalisburyDoors open 7:30pm, show starts 8:00pm Tickets £10 in advance or £12 on the door (£8 with NUS / NHS or What’s On Hub card) Tickets available at HullBoxOffice.com or to collect from the venue itself on the night: The Back Room, 175a Hallgate, Cottingham HU16 4BB (please message us on FB or send an email to email@example.com to reserve tickets to purchase on the night at the advance rate)Cottingham Comedy Club, the village’s only comedy venue, provides an unique comedy experience in many ways. This intimate club gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. We are a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice. With four acts and a compere it’s great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it’s the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
