Howl Comedy presents:
One final night of pro comedy before a summer break. Make sure you don't miss this one!
Spain's best export, Ignacio Lopez (more than 10 million online views) slams Spanish and British culture in a relentlessly funny show about invasions, history and tapas. An armada of sarcasm, silliness and songs! If you saw Ignacio's brilliant opening set in our first Penarth Howl in March, he'll be doing completely different (hilarious) material for us before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe for August!
"Unique and hilarious" - Buzz Magazine
"Had the crowd roaring" - Get Reading
"Charismatic with waspish charm, coaxing and smart!" Chortle
"Had the best line of the night" - Guardian
"Filled the room with laughter. Relevant and perceptive. An act not to be missed" - BroadwayBaby
Martin's laidback storytelling and killer punchlines have won him support slots with Stewart Lee, Russell Howard and Josh Widdicombe. He has been performing stand up since 2009, although thankfully very little evidence exists of his pre-2012 efforts. In his comedy, he shies away from obvious jokes and easy laughs, and instead prefers to dissect his subject matter in clinical detail, taking situations to their logical conclusion and often far beyond. He's taking his third full show to the Edinburgh Fringe this year in which he tries really hard to be less miserable.
"Adept and funny"- The Guardian
"A delight" - Alternative Comedy Cabaret.
"Fantastic storytelling" - Bristol Punchline
"One of the most original and promising new acts to come out of the South West Comedy scene in the last two years” (Will Hodgson), Louise Leigh is a bona fide numpty dressed as a middle aged woman from Bristol. She's brutally honest about parenting, the midlife "sniping and logistics" phase of marriage and shaving your legs like you're in an advert.
"Great performance, great confidence, great jokes" -Gary Delaney
"Charming, funny and a natural rapport with the audience" -John Hegley
LORNA PRICHARD (MC)
BBC Sesh star Lorna was a TV news presenter before turning to stand up. Since swapping headlines for punchlines, she has performed at Edinburgh and Leicester Comedy Festivals, won a comedy award in San Francisco and hosted many events - from comedy nights, festivals and car rallies to a cat carnival!
"A warm and natural MC who puts the audience at ease." – Nick Page
"A really good comedian." – Lloyd Langford
