Little Laugh at the Lescar
Comedian Carl Hutchinson MCs this regular night at the Sheffield pub tomorrow, Thursday, fresh from a stint at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
In his Edinburgh show, All the Rage, Carl decided to see what life would be like living all the time as his on-stage persona.
Off stage, he claims to be a polite, well-mannered guy who keeps himself to himself.
On stage, he is unafraid and very often can’t help himself when reacting to annoying people or difficult situations.
This newly liberated Carl let loose and found himself getting into a variety of confrontations.
He found that he really enjoyed himself but has he made it a fully-fledged transformation or was it just a one-off experiment for a comedy show?
He is joined on the bill at the Sharrowvale Road pub by Scott Gibson and Andrew Bird.
Scott was described by comedy website Chortle as “He’s got oomph, energy and likeability”.
Andrew Bird says he started his career by making old blokes laugh down the pub and now he’s taking the comedy bull firmly by the horns.
He is said to boast perfect timing, crisp delivery and spot-on observations. His comedy is derived from his lack of identity. He says he is white, British, between middle and working class, and neither northern nor southern.
It is however this everyman persona that provides his core appeal and he outlines his struggles with everyday difficulties.
Doors open at 8pm and the show starts at 8.30pm. Tickets are £8 and £5 with an NUS card. Details: www.lastlaughcomedy.com
