Our Birmingham Comedy Festival show this year is your chance to see Red Dwarf's Norman Lovett supported by a great bunch of local acts. Tickets are only £9 each (with no booking fee) and can be bought by clicking the link at the bottom of the page. Scroll down to find out more about the other acts.
Our MC for the night is the multi-award winning comedian Eric Rushton. Already the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2020, Eric recently became the first winner of the Channel 4 Sean Lock comedy award. In recent years, he has built up a considerable fanbase and this will be an opportunity to see why so many people think he is destined for greatness.
Hannah was the winner of last year's Breaking Talent Competition, which takes place at the Birmingham Glee Club as part of the Birmingham Comedy Festival.
She is a popular act who has been performing in and around Birmingham since 2019. Being a big Red Dwarf fan, she is very excited to be performing on the same show as Norman Lovett.
Richard is the creator of the popular podcast 'Tea with the Devil', in which he (as the devil) discusses everyday topics with Eric Rushton. Richard also hosts a monthly comedy night at Cherry Red's in Birmingham city centre called The Late Night Sweet Shop, where the best alternative acts from the comedy circuit
go to try out weird and wonderful ideas.
Damon is one of the best, if not the best, comedy magician in the Midlands. He is a regular performer at Hollywood Comedy Club, but can also be seen performing in the show Conlan Beats the Devil with Richard Dadd, and also on Saturday 7th October in a double feature called 'Medium Rare and Cherry' with Worcester based comedian Lin Smith.
Chris has been performing his unique brand of musical comedy around the Midlands since 2016. He has performed for Hollywood Comedy Club on several occasions and is always brilliant.
Online, however, Chris is probably more well-known for his viral video in which he makes a clay model of Sonic the Hedgehog!
Mat is a one-liner comedian who runs Hollywood Comedy Club with his friend Sean Taylor. He has also written several books including The Mathematical Wombat (see video) and also the almost-available book about joke writing called 'Never Explain a Joke: The Art and Science of the One-Liner'. He tries to sell these wherever he goes.
As crazy as it seems, you can see all of these acts on the Normal Lovett show at the Kings Heath Irish Centre for just £9, with no booking fee, by clicking on the button below and buying a ticket.
