‘The Very Best in Stand Up’ returns to Nantwich Civic Hall on Friday June 10th for the final show before taking a break for the summer. Going out with a bang, a star studded line-up brings a close to this season of live comedy. Worth noting that owing to the Queen's Jubilee, this one's taking place a week later than usual and not the first Friday.


The Compere for the evening is Maff Brown, a stalwart of the circuit Maff’s mischievous nature and razor sharp improvisational skills see him perform at all the major clubs as well as on Military tours entertaining the troops abroad. Maff has recently appeared on BBC’s ‘Mock The Week’ and we’re delighted to have him host for us in Nantwich.


The first act for evening, making their debut in Nantwich is Alun Cochrane. Alun is a master at observational comedy, an expert in storytelling and uniquely able to to gather material from anywhere he wanders in mind or body. Alun has appeared on numerous TV shows including Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Russell Howard’s Good News, Mock The Week, Dave’s One Night Stand, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.  Alun is also the co-host of The Frank Skinner Show on Absolute, for which he received an Arqiva Award nomination for Best Newcomer. The show also won the Sony Award for Best Entertainment Programme.


Josh Pugh is next on the bill. One of the hottest new acts in the UK, Josh’s rise through the ranks was rapid, winning ‘English Comedian Of The Year just 2yrs after playing his first gig. Josh’s clever, original, and (most importantly) very funny writing and performing continues to bring in plaudits, from Chortle to the Londonist to the London Evening Standard, and he undoubtedly has a blindingly bright future.


Closing the show is the one and only Paul Sinha. Known to many as ‘The Sinnerman’ from TV’s ‘The Chase’ Paul is definitely one of those stand-ups who helps you understand how ‘punchlines’ got their name: his jokes are well aimed and they land with a forceful thump. ‘Comedically speaking he’s a heavyweight...nigh on perfect’ - Independent on Sunday. Sinha first made media recognition back in 2006 with his show Saint or Sinha as he was nominated for the If. Comedy (formerly Perrier) award at the Edinburgh Festival. Since this time Sinha has performed several shows and toured extensively including Beijing, Munich, Amsterdam and Barcelona. In 2014 Paul was voted “Best Club Comedian” in the Chortle Awards.
