Yellow Comedy returns to the Kitchen in Croxley Green on Friday 2nd December for the King or Queen of Herts 2016 Competition featuring Headliner Sandra Hale in an event supported by Link4Growth SW Herts.
Doors open at 7.30pm and the comedy starts at 8pm. Although entry is free people are encouraged to pay what they think the nights worth at the end of the evening.
Headliner for the show will be Sandra Hale who won the Yellow Comedy King or Queen of Herts 2015 Competition at the Pump House and defeated 7 of the best comics from Hertfordshire in the process. Quite simply put, Sandra is outstandingly Funny and an inspiration to everyone who watches her comedy performances.
Taking part in the competition will be the following acts who will be battling out for £25 and the King or Queen of Herts 2016 Trophy
Dylan Dodds - Dylan is a strange man and comedian from Watford. He talks about himself a lot. His style has been described as inventive satirical whimsy with dark undertones leavened by silly one-liners. By himself. As a man adrift in a sea of the mundane, Dylan stared into the void and decided the only option was to laugh at it
Simon Lilley - Simon’s disarming and clever – able to mix word-play gags with solid, original and interesting material - even about the most commonplace experiences and gripes. Sometimes fuelled by a sense of injustice, the former Watfordian's occasional - and often truncated - poems can say it best. An amiable and laid back comedian with a strong stage presence, he knows how to rant and he knows how to laugh. A lot of what he says is unashamedly silly and inconsequential.
Chris Markiewicz - Chris has just reached his sixth decade, happens to have a visual impairment and, to cap it all is Polish. Arguably, the only Polish, elderly, visually impaired comic on the circuit, if not on the globe. He was born in Balham but defected to High Barnet 20 years ago when he got on the Northern Line to go to Central London and forgot to get off. He’s never looked back, although has difficulty looking in most directions.
Pamela Mitchell - Pamela is a very funny lady who's known for putting smiles on audiences faces with her unique but hilarious perspective into her life. Outside of Comedy she is a Rally Car Co-Driver and was impressively second in her class in all 3 championships: BTRDA 1400's, MSA English and Welsh National in 2015.
Fin O'Driscoll - King's Langley's Fin started doing stand up in 2015 & is regularly found popping up on the open mic scene. She has done courses with Gráinne Maguire and Logan Murray. Fin participated in the Tringe Festival Tringe Rovers event. She's worked with the Battersea Arts Centre on one of their children's shows. Fin has also worked in health care but is too angry about what is happening to our NHS to make jokes about it.
Fiona Ridgewell - Fiona's a twenty-something year old female, who has a skewed look at her life experiences whilst continually looking to achieve a fairy-tale life. She has won a number of stand up comedy competitions including 'The Blackout' at Up The Creek (twice). Beat the gong at the Comedy Store London. Fiona was a semi finalist in Funny Women 2015.
Adam Riley - Adam is a Chesham based comic who is known for his strong comedy writing, very funny anecdotes and his smooth comic delivery. Adam gigs all over the UK and South East and won the Gong Show at the Comedy Store London in June 2015.
MC - Andrew Carberry - Andrew is the co-promoter of Yellow Comedy and one sixth of the sketch comedy troupe The Bosun's Delight who took part in the Bedford, Camden and Henley Fringe Festivals this summer. Andrew has taken part in over 220 comedy shows across the UK in the last two years.
