Paul F Taylor

The final Travestees Comedy Club night of the season takes place at Tor Leisure Centre in Glastonbury on Wednesday 21st May and as usual there’s a cracking line up ahead of its summer break. Here’s the line-up: MC for the night is Paul F Taylor, an  award winning comic who is a one of the UK’s most exciting and distinctive stand-up performers. His unique brand of humour fuses quirky offbeat one liners with surreal observational flights of fancy to fantastical effect. Nominated as NATY New Act Of The Year for 2013 and GQ Magazine’s comedian of the week, Paul’s persona of a lost bewildered fool sits perfectly alongside his gleefully madcap ideas.

Carey Marx

Back by popular demand multi award winning Carey Marx has been an international circuit favourite for years mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischievous and gleeful delivery.  His wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places. This hilarious mix of edgy topics and playful gagsmithery can be seen all around the world with Marx regularly playing all the top clubs and annually compering Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury Festivals.

Peter Brush

Peter Brush

A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush has clocked up an ever-increasing amount of respect in his first few years on the comedy circuit. With his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, Brush unassumingly takes the stage before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion. Peter has already been a finalist in a variety of local and national comedy competitions including the BBC New Comedy Award 2013, as well as winning the Harrogate Comedian of the Year 2012. He has also written for Radio 4 and supported Arthur Smith during his 2013 tour. “An imaginative use of language and obtuse angles of thought that produce distinctive and eclectic gags. His best lines are inspired” – Chortle

Tom Price

Tom Price bounds on stage full of energy and audiences warm immediately to his puppy-like charm and sense of fun. His interaction with the audience is warm and inclusive and his ability to think on his feet and work the crowd is simply stunning. Tom’s material is charming & self effacing, but with a very wicked side that keeps the laughs rolling on and on. Some of you will recognise him as Sgt Andy Davidson from Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, but Tom has also appeared in Swinging (C5), Time Trumpet (BBC2), feature film The Boat That Rocked, and your kids may even recognise him from Hotel Trubble (BBC). “Endlessly inventive and brilliantly funny” – The Scotsman “His love of language is evident throughout and he has an analytical gift which extends beyond mere observation. This is comedy of the most cerebral variety, material capable of provoking both thought and laughter, well-paced and decisively delivered.” – The Herald Travestees Comedy Club is held in Tor Leisure Centre, Glastonbury and costs £10 on the door. Doors open at 7.30 and the comedy starts at 8pm. For further details head to www.travestees.com
