South Mill Arts Comedy Night: Britain's Got Talent star Robert White supported by Mark Simmons, Aaron Twitchen and Jack Gleadow
If you were looking to have your ribs tickled by a gay, aspergic, quarter-Welsh comedian then South Mill Arts has just the man.
Robert White is on the bill this Saturday (Oct 9) for the Bishop's Stortford venue's first Comedy Night in a showcase of some of the country's brightest young talent on the circuit.
Known for his brilliant timing and performance style, Robert was a runner-up in the 2018 series of ITV's Britain's Got Talent behind fellow stand-up Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy.
His chaotic stage presence, improvisational skills and delivery won him the 2010 Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. And in the same year, he wrote one of Dave’s Top Ten Jokes of the Fringe.
Also on the bill at South Mill Arts is Mark Simmons, who has appeared on BBC’s Mock the Week and One for the Road, ITV’s Out There and heard on his hilariously intriguing podcast Jokes With Mark, in which he invites fellow comedians to discuss jokes that didn’t work.
Aaron Twitchen has been making a name for himself in recent years as a stand-up comedian, actor and, bizarrely, as a trained circus performer. He made a mark at Edinburgh with his solo show Can’t Stop A Rainbow, which brilliantly showcased his own brand of intelligent, bubbly and frank stand-up.
And the last name on the line-up is Jack Gleadow, Chortle’s Best Newcomer Nominee and winner of the 2018 Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and 2017 Amused Moose National New Comic Award. Jack is one of the most exciting and versatile new stand-ups on the comedy circuit, mixing old school entertainment with a modern twist.
Tickets cost £19.50 (concessions £17.50; NHS workers pay what they can; students 2-for-1). Visit the southmillarts.co.ukwebsite or call the box office on 01279 710200.
