 Stand Up For The Weekend

with Roger Monkhouse, David Whitney & John Robins at the Hen & Chicken on Saturday

Roger Monkhouse

Sat 29 November
8.45pm £12

ROGER MONKHOUSE

with DAVID WHITNEY plus compere JOHN ROBINS

Hen & Chicken

"Unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air" Chortle.co.uk

Roger Monkhouse is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene. A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger's trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit.

Distinguished as a comic by his eloquence and keen eye for a fine phrase, Roger's easy observational style is spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. He has no shortage of first class observational material in his armoury.

"His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind" - The Guardian

David Whitneywith DAVID WHITNEY

"David Whitney's got a well-defined sense of comedy which – when delivered with the impassioned hard sell he gives to all his routine – guarantees laughs." Chortle

Taking his first steps out of the primordial soup, David Whitney provides a guide to sex, drink and violence and not getting away with it. A frank account of human desires, foibles and defects, attempting to offer excuses for man’s fragility. Not designed to be especially touching or moving, just honest and hilarious.

"The silver-tongued warrior" The Spectator

"Flashes of inspiration…thundering through for the next gag, he is very professional" The Herald

John Robinsplus compere JOHN ROBINS

"Delivering belly laughs through phrasing alone, and conjuring side-splitting turns of phrase as he regales his self-deprecatory tales" Chortle

The excellent and very popular John Robins returns once again to the Hen & Chicken to host an evening of top class stand-up. His distinctive, self-absorbed comedy marks him out as someone who is uniquely different and deserves your attention if you've not seen him before. Very engaging, intelligent stand-up.

"Fiercely intelligent, but also genuinely sympathetic and ludicrously funny - I laughed so much it made my lungs hurt" Three Weeks Edinburgh Festival

"Sparkling stand-up" The Times
