here's the week aheads funny business and one-off live music Sunday special...
Thursday Celebrity Pub-quiz
Local living legend Stephen ' The Wow Show, The Oblivion Boys, The Young Ones, Carling Black Label, Comedy Store Players, Churchill ' Frost pops the questions.
Saturday Night Stand-up Comedy
M.C. Juliet Meyers, whose 'on-stage likeability and clever puns are a joy' - Time Out, is the rope keeping the overloaded roof-rack of this week's skidding charabanc of a show in place.
Clamber aboard and fasten your seat-belts for Nick Doody, whose writing credits include Friday Night Live and 8 out of 10 Cats. Doody got off to a jump start re stand-up; while still a student he was hand-picked by Bill Hicks himself to support him on his last UK tour. He's one of the brightest talents on the circuit; sharp, topical and surreal.
'Very impressive...unfailingly good punch-lines...' - Chortle.
Hold on to your hat for Inder Manocha who perfectly captures Britain's infatuation with ethnic intergration, and conjures up a belly-full of laughs with sharp-shooting cultural observations. He played Anwar's father in E4's Skins and can also be seen playing a leading role in the new Jimmy Nail vehicle 'Parents of the Band'.
And wind down your window and scream for Addy Van Der Borgh whose 'witty set is as much a tour-de-force performance piece as stand-up' - Chortle.
'Addy takes you on a journey of the mind to the many voices in your head, that come together in a brilliant combination' - Time Out.
'An excellent stand-up' - The Guardian.
'Comic genius' - The Scotsman.
Monday 9th - The All-New Stand-up Show...New Material Night
7 headline acts do their latest stuff hot-off-the-pad/back-of-hand/sleeve.
One for the comedy purist this one. There's little or no 'where you from?' type lead up - they simply get up there and go at it.
Our pool of headliners: Daniel Kitson, Micky Flanagan, Paul Tonkinson, Rob Rouse, Liam Mullone, Paul Sinha, Jeff Innocent, Alan Francis, Martin Soan, Charmian Hughes, Andrew Bird, Stephen Carling and Steve Day - leave us chin deep in brand new and quality comedy every other week.
Fascinating, funny and only 3 quid.
If you'er interested do join The Hob Facebook group as we keep members informed re Monday night line-ups.
