Peacock and Gamble to headline Welcome Week Comedy Night!

We are delighted to announce that Peacock and Gamble will be headlining our comedy show at this year's Freshers' Week

 

We have all been at a show that goes wrong.  Actors can forget their lines, technicians can miss cues, or a lion can get in the room and go mental.  But there has never been, until now, a back–up show waiting in the wings, ready to leap in and save the day (and kill the lion).  Step forward Ray Peacock & Ed Gamble (Russell Howard's Good News, Peacock & Gamble Podcast) with their ramshackle, seat-of-the-pants, emergency comedy night.  Chortle Award Nominees 2011.  “Unfettered roars of laughter” The Guardian.  Don’t bring a lion.    

 

Support for the evening will be provided by Nat Luurtsema

 

Nat Luurtsema was a 2008 Chortle Best Newcomer Nominee after just eight months doing stand-up. She reached the finals of ‘Funny Women’ and the Laughing Horse’s ‘New Act of the Year’ competition, and appeared as part of the Comedy Zone at the Edinburgh Festival in 2008; the Fringe’s longest running and most prestigious showcase.

Nat is also an award-winning presenter, interviewing performers on Festival FM in Edinburgh for two years, on the Glastonbury Festival’s radio station for three years, and online for Tiscali’s video coverage of the Edinburgh Fringe. Broadcast voted her one of their ‘Hotshot Writers’, while the London Paper featured her as one of the ‘Top 30 under 30’ talents to watch.

More recently Nat wrote and starred in ‘Girl Friday’, a Comedy Showcase for Channel 4 made by Objective Productions. ‘Girl Friday’ will be broadcast in December.

Nat Luurtsema is definitely an original thinker. Her inventive, witty routines demonstrate a wonderfully warped logic, taken to the limits of imagination.”
