Comedian Gary Delaney is coming to Stagefright Comedy Club in Matlock Bath

Stagefright Comedy Club returns to The Fishpond in Matlock Bath on Wednesday, November 11, with a bumper line-up headed by Mock The Week star Gary Delaney.

As seen on the likes of Dave’s One Night Stand, The Stand Up Show, Comedy Central’s Comedy Blue, Gary is a multi award-winning performer, always ready with a his majestic one-liner based wit whose inordinately tightly written, wonderfully original material makes him one of the most quoted gagsters on the entire planet.

Respected by peers and audiences alike, his brilliant and often deliciously twisted lines win over any crowd and leave them struggling to remember all the ones they want to tell later. He’ll be previewing material from his forthcoming UK theatre tour There’s Something About Gary.

Also on the bill is the familiar figure of Alfie Moore, star of two series of his own Radio Four show, and also seen on ITV’s Show Me The Funny and Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff.

Alfie tasers his way through hilarious and fascinating anecdotes drawn from his 18 years on the beat as a police officer.

His recent Edinburgh Festival show The Naked Stun was critically acclaimed and sold out every show. Alfie is an original and distinctive comedian with his niche area as a serving police sergeant. He came slightly later to comedy and brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from his day job, where a keen sense of humour has been the key to his success and survival.

He has also supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours and toured his own Edinburgh festival show I Predicted A Riot around UK theatres to great critical acclaim. Alfie has a relaxed observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing with belly laughs abundant.

Also on the bill will be Howard Walker, self confessed metal head proffering oodles of onstage warmth and dry wit, and your regular host with the most, Anthony J Brown.

Admission is £10. Doors open at 7pm for an 8pm. Call 01629 581 529 for more details
