Cottingham Comedy Club Presents Nina Gilligan plus support - The Back Room, Cottingham - Kingston upon Hull

We are Back at the Backroom, our home every second Thursday of every month. Once again we have a brilliant headline act for you; this month it's the turn of the outstanding Nina Gilligan. Award Winning Comedian Nina Gilligan exploded on to the comedy scene in 2011 and is now a regular on the UK circuit performing at clubs and venues all over the UK. She was a finalist in English Comedian of the Year 2016. Equally at home in a Theatre, Arts centre or Social club audiences warm to her instantly. Sometimes outrageous, always hilarious, observational and Storytelling comedy for all. A persona you will fall in love with. A bolshier Mrs Merton she's not one to suffer fools lightly so watch out for a razor sharp witused at will. (Cottingham Comedy Club regulars, don't say we didn't warn you...). An act that will leave you breathless and shouting for more! Slick, polished with great writing.Some awards and praise for Nina Gilligan: Awards:2013 Finalist Hilarity Bites2013 Winner Hot Water Comedian of the Year2016 Finalist in English Comedian of the yearWhat they are saying:“Brilliant!

And your host for the evening is Cottingham comedy’s number 2 compere... self-styled sex symbol, wannabe local celebrity and Hagrid & Harry Potter's secret lovechild, it's Jed Salisbury. Doors open 7:15pm, show starts at 8:15pm. 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 cottinghamcomedyclub@gmail.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. the other compere at Cottingham Comedy Club is Rich Austin so please don't take this as any guarantee of the objective quality of Jed Salisbury, either as a compere or sex symbol. For a genuine assessment of the quality of compering on the night we recommend compereison websites like CompereTheMeercats.com or GoCompere.co.uk
