A message from Lone Star Comedy:
Hope everyone is well and you all enjoyed the frankly bizarre talents of Andrew Lawrence last month. We have a phenomenal line-up for this month's club (taking place this Saturday 21st May), featuring:
RICHARD HERRING (Richard was one half of the prolific comedy duo Lee & Herring, who were the masterminds behind both BBC TV series' Fist of Fun and This Morning With Richard, Not Judy. He is currently performing a handful of stand-up gigs in preparation for his 2005 Edinburgh Festival show, "Someone Likes Yoghurt". "Herring is a superior comedian" - THE GUARDIAN)
GARY DELANEY (Some of you may remember Gary from his appearance at the club about one year ago; his fantastic performance then has led him to being the first act we've re-booked at Lone Star. He is a hard hitting, one-liner based comedian whose tightly written, original material makes him one of the most quoted comics on the circuit. "razor sharp one-liners" - DAILY TELEGRAPH)
OWEN NIBLOCK (As our monthly short spot for new acts, Owen performs surreal monologues, tells laid back anecdotes and plays comedy songs on his Stick Dulcimer. "Owen's original songs and relaxed humour were right up my street. Fab" - BBC TEESIDE)
resident compere DANNY JAMES (he's funny, don't you know?)
SATURDAY 21ST MAY THE LANTERNS, FOLKESTONE Doors open between 7.45-8pm, the show starts at 8.30pm
Tickets are available now at 8 / 6 concessions, early reservations are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED (due to Richard's performance, we are expecting the show to be extremely busy) and are available by phoning 07810864228)
As far as the rest of this season goes, we will welcome ROBIN INCE (starred in BBC's The Office, and performed alongside Ricky Gervais for the latter's Politics stand-up tour last year) to the club in June and CHRIS LYNAM (a true circuit veteran, famed for some rather interesting on-stage antics involving fireworks) in July. Beyond that, we'll be taking a break in August when the entire circuit moves up to Scotland and then will be back for a packed Autumn season that will include a special show for the Folkestone Literary Festival in September, a Christmas gig and a New Years Eve gig. Get your diaries out, folks.
Thanks, Tom @ Lone Star
This is my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when I first came here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
