Comedy Cellar Best New Yorkshire Act 2015. 9 local up and coming acts vie for the annual £100 prize and contract of paid gigs. Plus a headline set from Mickey Sharma.
‘A laugh a minute rollercoaster ride’ – The List.
‘An act that brings that little twist of brilliance, biting comedy with a back beat and soul’ – The Eastern Eye
Contagious vocal magic and multi award-winner from BBC’s Big Comedy Night. Mickey’s boundless energy helps him tame any crowd no matter their age, gender, ethnicity or amount of alcohol consumed. He is an Indian that was born in Pakistan while his father was working for the Indian Embassy. After living in Pakistan, the family moved to Beijing, then Hong Kong, before ending up in Birmingham in 2002. Having had various jobs like a waiter, shelf stacker, camera assistant and bouncer, Mickey started comedy in 2009 and now works as a full time comic and gigs all over the UK and overseas (including Spain, Romania, India, Czech Republic).
Compere – Anthony J. Brown
Clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that’s slammed it’s claw in a coffin lid. And not the merest hint of profanity. The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface. Jongleurs/Metro ‘Stand & Deliver’ Award winner and BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2′s ‘The Arthur Smith Lectures’.
