Rachel Fairburn

Jamie Hutchinson

And a Very Special Mystery Guest

Bring your camping chairs and blankets, pitch up and spend your bank holiday afternoon laughing your socks off at our very special stand-up in the garden at Alexander’s this bank holiday Sunday 26th May.

Danny McLoughlin

Danny McLoughlin has the sharp wit & material, likeable persona and strong stage presence that have seen him become a much sought after act in his short time as a stand up.

It has been a rapid rise for Danny and it all looks set to continue. With an amiable, confident stage presence and a well written set Danny delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further.

Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word

"His innate comic timing, insightful digressions and ability to think on his feet puts him alongside the most talented and genuinely funny comedians!"

Three Weeks

 

“He can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs.”

Chortle

 

“Observational material with a dark edge.”
