HA HA Harborough – Comedy Night￼
Saturday 7th September The first HA HA of a new season of great comedy.
Headlining is American legend AL LUBEL. Al became a lawyer to satisfy his mother and then quit law to become a comedian to satisfy his need to torture her. At first, Al practiced law during the day and comedy at night. Getting stage time is hard for a comic starting out, so Al would sometimes stand in the middle of a Denny’s restaurant, and unannounced, do five minutes. And he always did well because he had everyone’s rapt attention, because everyone was scared he might hurt them.
He gradually improved, getting work on the road and leaving law behind. Within a year he won the $100,000 Comedy Grand Prize on Star Search. To be part of Tonight Show was a childhood fantasy, so Al auditioned and became one of the last comics to appear with Johnny Carson. He went on to appear in six more Tonight Shows with Jay Leno and then made five appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman. “Al has one of the best jokes I have ever heard” – Jerry Seinfeld. With support from MATT BRAGG—One of the stars of this year’s Big Value Show at the Edinburgh Fringe. “Best new acts I’ve seen in ages and I’ve seen a lot” – Mike Gunn. A recent finalist in Jason Manford’s New Act of the Year competition.
Also KIRSTY MUNRO also fresh from her run at the Fringe, with her Snog, Marry, Avoid show! Quite naughty and quite outrageous!
And more to be confirmed. With resident compere ALAN SEAMAN
