Brian Gittins & SMFB Present:
GITTINS TO KNOW YOU // SIMON MUNNERY & JORDAN BROOKES
Sticky Mike's basement is a great intimate venue for showcasing new comedy. Brian Gittins knows this well and continues to bring some of the best names from the alternative circuit to perform in such an intimate space.
This month we welcome Simon Munnery, also known as his characters "Alan Parker: Urban Warrior" and "The League Against Tedium", is an English comedian.
He performs mainly to an alternative audience but has pierced the mainstream both with his BBC Radio 1 show in 1997 and his BBC2 television series Attention Scum! in 2001. His stand-up is often satirical and political and almost always surreal.
Munnery's experimental style is reflected in his makeshift props. As "The League" he often wears a hat crafted from a kettle, and in one of his stand-up shows he plays a character who performs with a metal bucket over his head.
Joining him in the bunker will be Merseyside-born comic Jordan Brookes who was nominated for the 2017 lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Award. He first came to attention when he won the Welsh Unsigned Comedy Award in 2012
As usual the proceedings will be MC'd badly by Brian Gittins. Plus we have Brian's naughty spots unleashing some of the newest comedy talent there is to offer right now.
'Gittins To Know You' is a marvel of a carefully orchestrated shambles, filled with glee, spontaneity, and a knowledge that there’s nothing else like it. This is the home of oddballs, lunatics, and risks, and the bunker environment suits it. As does the city and the audience, who keep coming back for more of this anarchic joy.' - Latest 7 - 2016
