His energetic and often awkward approach to life is captured in his fast paced, vividly painted, humorous stories and is establishing himself as a circuit regular. He has appeared in BAFTA winning drama Marvellous (BBC), toured with global megastars The Who (UK Quadrophenia Tour) and played in every major comedy club in the UK.

DOUBLE BILL!

DOUBLE BILL: STAND UP & SLAM! + MUSICAL CID! 

Thursday 15th October. 

Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm)

Tickets: £5.00 – £9.00 https://www.musicglue.com/camden-head/events/15-oct-15-double-bill-stand-up–slam–musical-cid-camden-head/

Every now and again a show comes along which is so much fun and is different every time you watch it. So we just have to programme it. Sometimes two of those shows come along – so we have to make it a double bill! Stand Up & Slam! and Musical CID are two exciting, new format comedy shows with fantastic guests and incredible hosts. You can book for just one show or you can purchase tickets at ‘Buy 1, get 1 half price’ rates if you come to both!

STAND UP & SLAM!
Stand-up comedy: poetry’s idiot relation, right? Performance poetry: comedy’s boring cousin, yes? Let’s find out.

Six phenomenal acts go head to head for your approval as poetry and comedy collide with unexpected and hilarious results! Our resident team captains are joined by the most exciting comedy and poetry acts from around the UK. We’re mashing up the two art forms in an epic battle of spoken word. Who wins? You decide…

‘The result – well, it was decided by audience participation. But it didn’t really matter – the audience were the winners.’
– The Public Reviews

MUSICAL CID
One Comedian. One Life. Twenty Questions. Press PLAY…
ABI ROBERTS’ MUSICAL CID is the cult comedy confessional show that asks, “Which comedian has a music collection like this?! Do they have an inner yearning to be rock ‘n’ roll icons and who listens to Michael Buble, Robbie Williams or Nirvana on the way to a gig?”

Musical CID is the show that delves into what top comedians have on their iPods, vinyl, cassettes and CDs and it’s coming to Camden Comedy Club with a different Special Guest Comedian every day!

Hosted by stand-up comedian ABI ROBERTS, it’s a forensic examination of the musical tastes, memories, hopes and dreams of well-known comedians from stage and screen.

GARRETT MILLERICK

GARRETT MILLERICK – A SELECTION OF THINGS I’VE SAID TO TAXI DRIVERS. 

TIME: 20:00 (doors open 19:30). PRICE: FREE (Donations bucket at end)

Millerick returns with his most acerbic and painfully funny hour yet. Things you didn’t realise were annoying, analysed in detail that you never thought was necessary. Second place winner; the NATYS, New Comedian of the Year and Bath New Comedian. ‘Millerick is a belter of a new comedian, well worth shouting about’ (Stage). ‘…avoided cliche and made contentious points convincingly, though all in the name of a laugh rather than setting out any serious manifesto’ (Chortle.co.uk).
