Live com­edy acts from the Lounge

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Cinema -

Three com­edy acts at The Sports Lounge TAKE a break from the sum­mer sun­shine and head to The Sports Lounge for it’s monthly com­edy night on Sun­day.

There will be three acts on the bill - Rob Brod­er­ick, Joe Wilkin­son and Matt Blaize.

One of God’s great shuf­flers, Joe re­sem­bles a tramp that’s been cleaned up a bit and shoved on stage, but be­neath the strag­gly beard lies a very clever co­me­dian.

He tends to spend much of his act apol­o­gis­ing for lack of ma­te­rial but it’s clear that he has a rou­tine crammed with bril­liantly skewed ob­ser­va­tions, all de­liv­ered with an ex­pert level of dead- Rob Brod­er­ick - co­me­dian pan self dep­re­ca­tion.

The Metro news­pa­per wrote: “A fan­tas­tic co­me­dian that al­ways gets the crowd rolling around with laugh­ter.”

One of the most ex­cit­ing comics on the cir­cuit, Rob Brod­er­ick’s ex­plo­sive en­ergy will il­lu­mi­nate the stage and raise the roof of any venue.

Rob uniquely im­pro­vised his way into the fi­nal of pres­ti­gious com­edy award So You Think You Are Funny in 2005 and has been a head­line act and MC of note on the com­edy cir­cuit ever since.

This friendly, be­guil­ing, quick­think­ing, mav­er­ick can bring even the dullest room to life and have it buzzing and fizzing within sec­onds of tak­ing to the stage.

Matt Blaize is an ex­pe­ri­enced co­me­dian and has been per­form­ing pro­fes­sion­ally for nine years. He’s now a reg­u­lar on The Sports Lounge stage.

The night, at the venue in King Street, runs from 8pm un­til 10.30pm and ad­mis­sion is just £5. Tick­ets are avail­able from 01733 688434.

Don’t for­get that the venue is the place to watch the foot­ball World Cup this year, show­ing all games live, with some in 3D.

Eng­land’s key games will also be shown on a large out­door screen to cre­ate a car­ni­val at­mos­phere.
