I've been running and promoting a comedy night in Warrington for over seven years now and I'm looking to fill a couple of spots for open mic, there is no fee but a couple of drinks for you. This is a well established night in a friendly room with an audience who like to be involved so great for new material. The format of the night is three open mic, compere plus headline act
The night is based on alternate Wednesdays at The Albion Warrington
As well as run a night I sometimes get behind the mic (but not as much as I use to or should),.
Most of my humour is based on my childhood, work and marriage as well as everyday observations of life.
At the charity event a local writer attended and did a blog on myself and my good friend and follow comedian (see blog below).
Warrington's very own Tom and Dave.
Featuring in the Warrington Amateur Comedy Circuit every now and then are Tom McGuinness and Dave Appleton. I went along to see what they are about at Cinnamon Brow Farm Club on Friday November 8 2013, where they were in action individually alongside other amateur artists from around the North West of England. The whole evening was a grand evening of entertainment, which was made all the more entertaining by ending on the same table as Dave's wife. How myself and my wife ended up there, well we won't go there...
Both Tom and Dave have worked together for the same retail convenience store chain for a number of years now. In real life, it is believed that the two generally bounce off each other. Local Warringtonian stereotypes feature highly in Tom's style. More generally, Tom is so random there is always a good little bit for everyone. It could be that like Tom, you support a very obscure football team for the north west. If that is the case, then you may well relate to Tom's experiences of waiting over ten hours to get served in a very well known sports retail shop!
Dave's wife is very much part of Dave's style, as Dave will talk about the wonders of Mrs A in an eloquently tongue and cheek style. The style is in fact so eloquent, it does in fact paint a picture of Mrs A up on stage accompanying him. I would though at this point warn against ending up on the same table as the delightful Mrs Appleton. The reason being that one runs the risk of being clobbered (for laughing at her expense) as as I found out!
Dave will also talk in great fondness of his rise from YTS boy to Store Manager. What is most striking are the challenges Mr A has had to overcome to achieve his rise through the ranks. To give an example, once upon a time Dave gave some sound advice to a nice old lady who sought guidance on how to stop cheese from going mouldy. Unfortunately the old dear did not take kindly to being advised to eat it!
