Opening the show is HARRIET DYER - A unique comic voice, Dyer charms any room with matchless material, an offbeat stage presence and a truly whirlwind fizz of energy. Harriet already has heads turning with her baffling tales of a misspent youth, and bewildering personal tales that are so ridiculous, they must be true. Establishing her own style of material and delivery after such a short time.
"She's got funny bones!" – Kevin Bridges
"a bundle of whimsical hilarity… a breath of fresh air.. will have you in stitches" – Broadway Baby
"Instinctively funny… seems certain to become a comic force to be reckoned with" – Chortle
Our Closer for the show is a new material set from ABANDOMAN
Hip-Hop Improv comedy superstars ABANDOMAN are back at the Finsbury for what should be a sell out repeat of their famed appearances in 2013, 2014 and 2015. With no two shows being the same, Abandoman create hilarious freestyle songs at lightening speed based on audience suggestions. Fans of Abandoman will be pleased to learn that this show will feature some old classic songs and new (you heard it hear first) material.
If you have never heard of our headline act, allow Bear Funny Comedy to introduce the Winner of Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, the Musical Comedy Awards and the 2012 Adelaide Fringe Festival’s Best Comedy Newcomer Award. They also supported multi-platinum artist Ed Sheeran on his sell-out UK tour.
Abandoman have appeared on TV a number of times including BBC3′s Live at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, BBC2′s The Stephen K Amos Show, on Sky Arts as part of their Latitude coverage and many radio shows, including BBC Radio 1′s Fun And Filthy Cabaret, alongside Dappy from N Dubz.
However, many people have heard the buzz around this act from show stealing apperences at festivals such as Bestival, Latitude, Altitude, Rockness, Glastonbury, Hop Farm, V Festival. Abandoman hosted the 2012 St. Patricks Day event in Trafalgar Square and have opened for numerous comedy and music acts such as Micky Flanagan, Tommy Tiernan and DJ Yoda.
A star of the future!” – Time Out
“Their energy is infectious” Metro
“A freestyle talent that is unparalleled anywhere in the market. No two shows could ever be the same as they pick out audience members and freestyle about them, with comedic timing and witty rhyming that’s so impressive it could’ve been scripted.” – The Independent
