Frazer Theatre Comedy Club - December 2022

The Frazer Theatre Comedy Club gets into the festive spirit on Friday 2nd December. Kick off your Christmas season with a mince pie, some mulled wine and four of the best comedy acts in the country!
Tickets continue to be just £10 in advance, £12 on the door, but our last two shows have been sell outs so book early to avoid disappointment – once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Appearing at the club this month are:*

Nick Doody
Nick Doody has been performing comedy since the 90s when, as a student, he got off to a pretty good start by supporting the legendary Bill Hicks, at Bill’s request. A little later, Nick was a finalist in Channel 4′s So You Think You’re Funny? competition.

Since then he has performed all over the world: Ireland, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Estonia… You get the idea. He was the first British comedian to perform in Croatia.

Nick has appeared on various radio and TV shows and is also much in demand as a writer. He has penned jokes for Joan Rivers, Lenny Henry, Dame Edna Everage and an uncomfortable number of Mock The Week regulars. He was also the creator and head writer of Bigipedia, a critically acclaimed Radio 4 show that broadcast in 2009 and 2011.

“You will see many shows before you see another comic hit so hard with such grace…quite brilliant. “ – The Scotsman

“very impressive … unfailingly good punchlines … intelligent and funny … comes with the chortle seal of approval” – Chortle

Harry Stachini
Harry Stachini is the comedian to watch. Having established a reputation as an exciting young comedian with an impressive easy-going style. His warm and friendly stage presence comfortably leads us through hilarious and skilful storytelling, which is beyond his years. Harry performs at the UK’s finest comedy clubs and festivals having hosted the prestigious ‘Bound and Gagged’ ‘AAA’ Comedy Showcase at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017. He returned in 2019 to perform his debut solo show ‘Tigers Don’t Cry’ to sold-out audiences.

“Audience in stitches with gags” – Bedfordshire News
“A must-see act… compelling, inventive storytelling” – Spotlight Comedy Club
“Well observed characterisations and anecdotes” – The Skinny

Peter Rethinasamy
Born and raised in Belfast to a Malaysian father and Irish mother, Peter is a comedian with hard hitting, punchy jokes and hilarious tales of growing up in Northern Ireland.
Since he started performing stand up, he has reached the semi-finals of the Laughing Horse New Act Competition and won the London Comedy Store’s King Gong Competition. He is also resident MC at Fulham Comedy Club and cementing himself as a must-see act on the circuit.

Combining his love of comedy writing and acting (he was a member of the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain) Peter has been creating funny sketches for Instagram and TikTok. He was seen on Comedy Central Live in March and has supported Seann Walsh and Kerry Godliman on tour around the UK.

Dave Thompson
Stand-up veteran Dave Thompson is probably best known for playing Tinky-Winky in the Teletubbies – especially after he was sacked in July 1997 because the BBC thought his interpretation of the role was ‘unacceptable’.

As a live act, he has worked in the USA, Sweden, France, Ireland, Holland, The Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Croatia, Dubai, Oman, and The Falklands as well as on the British circuit. His absurdist physical humour led Ben Elton to write a role for him in his 2000 movie Maybe Babe. He is also a regular collaborator with Harry Hill, making several appearances on ITV’s The All New Harry Hill Show, Shark Infested Custard and TV Burp! and playing various roles in his stage shows Wild Horses and Hooves.

“Dave Thompson has a unique style and some of the best one-liners” – The Guardian
“One of the finest joke writers in the country” – Time Out
