Comedy Night at the Venue continues with Britain's best comedians.

Double Headliner - JellyBean Martinez & Brendan Riley with support from Callum Oakley

Jellybean Martinez is a Spanish pop star who works an audience like no other. He’s an explosive, high energy act; jam-packed full of camp nonsense and leaves an indelible mark on any punters mind!

“Latino lothario Jellybean Martinez is the icing on a very tasty cake”
The Skinny

There’s nothing bland or predictable about this stand-up comic.  Brendan’s Liverpudlian accent and lively blend of anecdotes, gags and inspired improvisation bring a refreshing blast of cheerful North Western humour and make him a sought after host and headline act at major comedy venues, universities and festivals.

Incredibly refreshing” **** Metro

Headliner - Daliso Chaponda

Daliso began his comedy career in Canada with the acclaimed one man show ‘Feed This Black Man’. Subsequent appearances across Canada followed (highlights include The Just For Laughs Festival 2005 & CBC Television’s ‘Crossing The Main’).

“It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his racial and socially insightful comedy. Every sentence he ends results in helpless laughter from the audience.”
News & Star, Carlisle
