Comedy Soirée: Ashburton
AboutA new night at the beautiful Ashburton arts centre is looking to make 2020, the year of no laughs, a long and distant memory.
Come, be amused by our eclectic group of established and award winning comedians in a stylish 'Soirée' setting. With a theatrical vibe, this evening will be unique - a side step away from your regular spit and sawdust comedy set up. Dress to impress with prizes rewarding creative extravagance.
Expect to be charmed from the moment of entry, by our welcoming and mysterious supporting "Soirée" hosts.
Providing a healthy dose of the sparkle and human connection so very absent in the previous year, we welcome the following comics:
Funny Women Awards 2006 winner. Suzy has been described as 'a dynamo of a comic, with a uniquely warm and chatty stage presence which means she is a brilliant MC as well as an act'. 'Vibrant, gorgeous and extremely funny' (BBC) 'A naturally funny person - very funny indeed!' (Jimmy Carr) 'That was great! See you on the telly' (Jo Brand).
Stand up comedian originally from ASHBURTON Devon and member of The Comedy Avengers. 'Quick wit and hilarious anecdotes' New Life Magazine 'Intelligent writing' Eminent Banter 'Confident on stage' Manchester Comedy Store
David Arnold is a loveable Welshman who never fails to deliver a well-rounded and polished performance that has his audience laughing throughout.

More recently he won the Bristol Comedy Gladiators new act grand final, and has even performed at the Download Festival!
Plymouth based award winning comedian, Christian Russell-Pollock is a rising star on the UK comedy scene. A charming and disarming presence, guaranteed to make the evening as smooth as a Galaxy Silk choccy bar!
