Abbey Theatre

Our regular Funhouse Comedy Club returns this month with
Nick Page
With some comics there’s a moment where you ask yourself ‘I wonder how much of this is true?’, with Nick Page you might hope it isn’t true, but somehow know that it is, mostly. His shows are full to bursting with stories from a life lived on the edge of (self inflicted) disaster.

In his shows there are no songs, props or padding, just stories packed with jokes from start to finish. The Guardian Newspaper described him as ‘ A bear like man with a host of barely believable stories about life, love and brushes with the law’.

In the last few years he has won the prestigious title ‘English Comedian of the Year’, performed at comedy festivals in 3 continents and been awarded the Operational Service Medal by the British army for numerous gigs in warzones, doing everything from shows in Camp Bastion and Kandahar for 5000 troops at a time, to being helicoptered to perform for 20 soldiers in a patrol base in the desert.

He’s reached the live finals of Britain’s Got Talent despite having never watched the show. A typical week in the UK might see performances in pubs and theatres before a weekend run at a comedy club. Between cruises and expat bookings he’s now performed in over half the world’s countries, and even kept busy during covid lockdown performing over 100 online gigs from a studio in his garage.  www.nickpagecomedy.co.uk  

Paul Tonkinson
A sensational live performer, Yorkshire man, marathon runner and Time Out Comedian of the Year, he  has long upheld his esteemed reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. TV appearances include Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.

Lovdev Barpaga
Lovdev Barpaga, the 2017 UK Pun Champion, has the kind of effortless and gentle likeability that is completely unique in the comedy world.  Entire crowds seem to fall in love with him from the start and as much of his incredible humour as for his undeniable charm. Often laughing as much as his audience, here's a man in love with his job and it shows.  You can't help but laugh along with him: The ultimate feel good comic.
