Comedians and Carols
Comedians and Carols
Following on from last year’s excellent event, we will be running Comedians and Carols again on 24th November.
On the run-up to Christmas what could be better than mulled wine, mince pies, carols and some top-notch comedy!
Hosted by Paul Kerensa, co-writer of BBC’s hit comedies Not Going Out and Miranda, the evening features stand-up routines from Paul and 3 other top comedians, interspersed with carols. With live music, mulled wine and mince pies Comedians and Carols is a fantastic way to start your Christmas.
Paul is a British Comedy Award winning writer for the BAFTA winning BBC shows ‘Miranda’, ‘Not Going Out’, ‘The Wrong Door’, ‘After You’ve Gone’, Radio 4’s ‘Dead Ringers’ (and many more). A stand up comedian in his own right, Paul won ITV’s ‘Take The Mike’ competition in 2002 and regularly plays London’s Comedy Store and many well-known comedy clubs across the country.

Dazzlingly funny – The Spectator
Wildly brandishing the worlds’ second largest briefcase containing a battery of ridiculous props, George bounds onto the stage to perform one of the most original, interesting, innovative, and sweetly whimsical comedy performances you are ever likely to see. He has been hailed as ‘a Tommy Cooper for the twenty first century’ and has recently been the support act for Lee Mack, Mickey Flannagan and Jack Dee.
A hugely entertaining variety turn – The Guardian
Singer, songwriter and all-round nice guy, Paul wrote his first songs at the age of 8. You’ll be pleased to know he’s improved. Tackling subjects as diverse as the rising oceans, successful long term relationships, procrastination, integrity and knitwear, Paul often finds himself off the lyrical beaten track, carving out a niche as one of the more engaging live performers you’ll come across. Those who’ve heard the moving ballad “Unnoticed” or the now infamous “The need for biscuits” will attest that he is equally at home being silly and sensible.
Winner of the Amused Moose Judges Prize for his 2013 Edinburgh show, yet one of the last comics to appear on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (making six more appearances with Jay Leno and five appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman), Al Lubel is one of those rare beasts who garners both critical praise and mainstream success.
