English Comedy Night is back.
Patrick Lamb comperes another evening of jokes and laughter, with opener Andy Valvur and headliner Addy van der Borgh.
Andy Valvur started his comedy career in San Francisco's legendary comedy clubs like The Holy City Zoo and The Other Cafe. He also worked at the Comedy Store in LA and the IMPROV in New York. He has written for Maxim, Cosmopolitan, the New York Times, Dan Aykroyd's House of Blues Radio Hour and the Emmy nominated Durst Amendent for PBS.
Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the ‘Stand-up Show’ on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on ‘The World Stands Up’ and ‘Live at the Comedy Store’ for Comedy Central, and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, 'Brain Candy'. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of 'TV Meltdown' for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including the legendary ‘Loose Ends’ on Radio 4.
Addy was the only British comic invited to appear in the Twentieth Century Fox Comedy Showcase in Los Angeles in September 2003 and was subsequently signed to the Hollywood agents Paradigm, and he recently played the starring role of ‘Jack Watson’ in his first film, ‘Little Things’.
