Funhouse Comedy & Barton Bros. Present: Comedy Live at The Garage!

Our live stand-up comedy show will be bringing some of the UK’s top comedians back to The Garage! Here’s your line-up:

Ben Norris –

The term “circuit legend” is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades and rarely departs a stage without leaving it torn to shreds in his wake. A master of the craft, this will be an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see – GQ Magazine

Ben Norris may not be a household name, but then very few really good comedians are these days.The London-based stand-up has been touring steadily for the past two decades, and he’s developed a razor sharp act in the process ; with the notable exception of Jason Byrne, it’s hard to think of anyone on the circuit who works an audience with as much skill and flair – The Scotsman

He’s one of the best headliners around, Ben Norris pretty much improv-ed his way through his 20-minute set, and did so beautifully – London is funny.com

…an acerbic attitude, a well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics on the circuit – Chortle

Mandy Murden –

Imagine Alison Steadman playing a beauty consultant doing Tommy Cooper-style magic. Can’t imagine it? Then go see Mandy!’ – The Scotsman

‘She raised the energy level in the room considerably with a succession of daft, failed tricks and silly gags. An enjoyable performance.’ – StandUpCom Magazine

‘The digitally-enhanced magic of the superb Amanda Muden’ – Evening Standard

‘Imagine a sexy femaleTommy Cooper, minus the fez’ – ES Hot Tickets

‘Mandy is going to be huge’ – Billy Connolly, Comedy Store, January 2003
