Curry’s on the menu at Dunmow Comedy Club
PUBLISHED: 10:09 05 June 2014
Dunmow’s Comedy Club will be spiced up tomorrow night with new acts and a homemade curry to tickle the taste-buds.
Audiences will be in for a treat with comics Stephen Carlin, Tony Cowards and Ola The Comedian on the bill. And for a bit of extra flavour they can have a chicken biryani, lentil dal with nan bread and chutney – homemade by the comic who started the club, Paddy Lennox.
Speaking about the new addition to the evening, Paddy said: “The things people love are comedy, beer, a curry and a great night out. For me, adding curry to the mix just makes a fantastic combination. I love making curry, my only worry is it will be too spicy as I have quite a hot pallet.”
Friday night’s show will be the last one at the Arts Centre, in Haslers Lane, until September. But Paddy has promised that there will be some incredible acts – including Ed Byrne – returning for next season.
“It has been such a success and word is getting to other comics – I have had some begging me to book them,” he added.
“The past few months I have really got to know what type of comedian works well in Dunmow and I have had that in mind when booking up the acts for next season.”
The show will feature a mix of different comics. Stephen Carlin has appeared in Stewart Lee Presents The Ten Best Stand-ups in the World Ever, while new talent Ola The Comedian is in his early 20s but has already been on ITV4 and MTV Base.
Quick-fire joke teller Tony Cowards, who was described as “a beaut of a one-liner merchant” by Q Magazine and as a “Pun-osaurus” by List magazine, completes the line-up.
The show starts at 8.30pm and tickets cost £12.50. For anyone wanting to sample the curry, that will cost
