Alex Kealy | The Bread Shed | Tue 12 Mar | 7.30pm | £5/3
Mock the Week writer and rising star of the British stand-up scene Alex Kealy gets a headline slot at XS Malarkey this week after a short but impressive performance at Group Therapy’s Magnificent Seven earlier this year. Also on the bill is Amy Gledhill, Hull’s greatest export since Reece Shearsmith, so this is a real chance to check out the future of UK comedy.
Tim Renkow | The Old Monkey | Wed 13 Mar | 7.30pm | £5
When people say that they are an equal opportunities offender they are usually straight, white males and thusly already pretty high up on the privilege chart. The self-described ‘crippled, redneck, Mexican Jew’ Tim Renkow believes he’s in a prime position to make jokes about pretty much any group he wants. Anyone who has seen Renkow in ‘Bobby and Harriet Get Married’ on Comedy Central, ‘A Brief History of Tim’ or ‘Jerk’ for the BBC will know that his jokes rarely fail and are delivered with a knowing grin.
Tony Law | The Bread Shed | Thu 14 Mar | 7.30pm | £15
Tony Law is back with ‘A Lost Show’, a chaos baiting cavalcade of pure brilliance from a man back on his A game. Arguably his funniest show to date, and definitely his most meaningful this is Law at his most random and uproarious.
