For The Weekend 
with ANGELA BARNES

also featuring
OLA plus compere DAVID MORGAN

"Brilliantly funny" Sarah Millican

"Barnes mixes warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes" The Guardian

Since 2011, Angela Barnes and her witty world view have been catapulted onto numerous radio and television shows including appearances on Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, a full series of Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week in 2013, and more recently she has popped up on several Mock The Weeks on BBC2.

After a career in health and social care, Angela Barnes decided to realise a long held ambition and give comedy a go. Within a couple of years she had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition.

"Like all the best comics, she manages to articulate a singular perspective while making it seem like a universal truth. And then she put jokes in it. Harder than it looks" The Guardian

"A beautifully paced performance that was aided by the consistent quality of her jokes, many of which showed a great skill with self-deprecation" Chortle

"This is a lady who is confident in the way she attacks her one liners and punch lines, her easy going manner really drew the audience in" Fringe Review

Olaalso featuring OLA

"A vibrant, likeable performer who refreshingly encapsulates a young, urban spirit" Chortle

Young, driven and hugely talented, Ola is a stand-up comedian, writer and actor with natural originality and enviable stage presence.

Renowned for his intelligent, edgy humour, Ola has been selected to represent the UK in the Montreux Comedy Festival's gala showcasing the best comedy talent from around the world. He has already appeared on The Comedy Store on Comedy Central, and he writes for Radio 4's The Now Show, The News Quiz and Can't Tell Nathan Caton Nothing where he also played various roles.

He is also a regular member of The Comedy Store's acclaimed Cutting Edge team in London's Leicester Square - a weekly stand-up showcase for long-established comics.

"An infectiously playful spirit", Chortle

"The sort of enthusiastic, charismatic act likely to be plucked from the circuit by TV producers seeking a presenter to appeal to a youthful demographic" Chortle

"A confident, laid-back performer with a refreshing honesty and an interesting story to tell. He has some really smart jokes" The Scotsman
