What's it about?
We are Back at the Backroom, our home every second Thursday of every month. Once again we have a brilliant headline act for you; this month it’s the turn of the outstanding Nina Gilligan.
Award-Winning Comedian Nina Gilligan exploded on to the comedy scene in 2011 and is now a regular on the UK circuit performing at clubs and venues all over the UK. She was a finalist in English Comedian of the Year 2016. Equally at home in a Theatre, Arts centre or Social club audiences warm to her instantly. Sometimes outrageous, always hilarious, observational and Storytelling comedy for all. A persona you will fall in love with. A bolshier Mrs Merton she’s not one to suffer fools lightly so watch out for a razor sharp wit, used at will.
An act that will leave you breathless and shouting for more! Slick, polished, with great writing.
Some awards and praise for Nina Gilligan:
2013 Finalist Hilarity Bites
2013 Winner Hot Water Comedian of the Year
2016 Finalist in English Comedian of the year
What they are saying:
“Brilliant! An outstanding comic and one of my favourite acts on the circuit” Toby Foster
“Nina Gilligan is Sarah Millican on a budget, but seriously she is that good!” Steve Royle
“Nina Gilligan is a naturally funny comedian with a charming and genuinely likeable style”John Thomson
“Naturally funny, naturally talented: She’s too natural for a comic. Go and see her now before she becomes nature’s biggest comedian!” Pat Monahan
Plus support from a professional comedian opening the show and with two of the best up and coming acts in the middle section.
And your host for the evening is Cottingham comedy’s number 2 compere… self-styled sex symbol, wannabe local celebrity and Hagrid & Harry Potter’s secret lovechild, it’s Jed Salisbury.
Doors open 7:30pm, show starts 8:15pm. Tickets £10 in advance or £12 on the door (£8 with NUS / NHS or What’s On Hub card).
Cottingham Comedy Club, the village’s only comedy venue, provides an unique comedy experience in many ways. This intimate club gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. We are a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice. With four acts and a compere it’s great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it’s the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
