THE team at Gag House Comedy HQ decided the New Year is a fabulous time to try something new – and they’re hoping you will too! Making their Weybridge debut, Brooklands Gag House Comedy Club comes to Brooklands Museum on Saturday, January 19 where comediansMark Dolan, Susan Murray, Chris Stokes and Joe Hobbs can’t wait to have a laugh with you.
The gags will come thick and fast from charismatic comic Mark Dolan who recently emerged unscathed from a stint on Channel 4’s The Jump. A highly skilled comedian, broadcaster and writer, Mark is best known as host of Channel 4’s iconic comedy series Balls of Steel.
Mark also fronted three hit series of globetrotting documentaries The World’s …and Mefor C4– in which he met the most extraordinary people on the planet, including the smallest man, tallest woman, richest teenager, cleverest child and the owner of the world’s largest breasts!
Winner of the first ever Jongleurs competition and a seasoned regular on the circuit, Susan Murray has emerged as one of the best female stand-ups in the UK and was the first ever woman to MC Decompression gigs for the British Army/CSE. She is in the top 100 Huffington Post Funny Women Tweeters. She has written for and appeared as a guest on Jeremy Hardy Talks To The Nation and has also starred in Stephen K Amos’ Idiots Guide, both for Radio 4.
She has penned four successful solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival as well as performing in several comedy plays and sketches. Susan is currently presenting on East London Radio and is about to go on tour with Britain’s Got Talent star Daliso Chaponda.
Brilliantly wry and award-winning comic Chris Stokes has been performing stand-up professionally since 2009. His career has seen him support the likes of Milton Jones, Pete Firman and Stewart Francis on tour, appear on Dave’s One Night Stand(Channel Dave), BBC Radio 4, 5Live and Radio X (formerly XFM) and take four critically acclaimed solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
With a hilarious and erudite turn of phrase, Stokes has been described as playing on social misconceptions and dismantling them both on stage and on the page via gag-packed first-hand anecdotes told with a charming and offbeat sincerity.
Newcomer Joe Hobbs is already taking the comedy scene by storm. In 2017 he took to the stage for the first time, and by 2018 was on the podium of two national new comic awards, Amused Moose and So You Think You’re Funny, as well as being crowned a BBC New Comedy Award Nominee.
