Nodding Dog Comedy presents:
Comedy At The Rovers kicks off at Ewood Parks very own Blues Bar on Saturday 24th July!
MC Karen Bayley is one of the most in demand acts on the comedy circuit. Having toured as support for Joe Lycett, we've booked ourselves a safe pair of hands to keep the night on track!
Tony Burgess is tonight's opener and rock at the back! You may recognise Tony from his role in the cult BBC3 comedy Ideal where he played DJ Troy, Moz’s crazy, vinyl obsessed brother; you may have seen his self penned BBC1 sitcom The Visit, or maybe you’ve caught him doing stand up where he’s played most established venues throughout the country. “…great, well crafted gags” (The Times) Tony was the winner of the prestigious City Life Comedian of the Year, came runner up in So You Think You’re Funny and was nominated for best stand up and writer at the North West comedy awards.
In the middle of the park, Good Kids (AKA Kieran Ahern and Tom Dowling), who met in the playground at the age of four (Kieran is the curvaceous one, Tom is the other one). They're daft, weird and a bit lairy. With a mix of ridiculous comedy songs, top class on-stage banter and great jokes. Flair and creativity a plenty!
Leading the lineup, JONNY PELHAM, who is one of the most exciting stand-up comedians on the circuit. Over the last few years he has appeared on Live from the BBC (BBC3), Russell Howard’s stand-up Central (Comedy Central) and Live at the Apollo (BBC2).
Jonny is also an in-demand comedy writer and actor having appeared in the Viceland series, Bobby & Harriet Getting Married, as well as his own short film released as part the Sky Comedy Shorts season, Late Bloomer (Sky Arts). Jonny is currently developing a number of projects, both scripted and unscripted, for TV, and has written and starred in his own Channel 4 Comedy Blap, Brad Boyz (E4).
A fantastic night in store. Come and support live comedy AND your local football club!
