“We are really excited to launch this new event,” said Mariana Swain, events fundraising officer. “It will be a fantastic way to spend an evening in February, with entertainment from four hilarious comedians. We hope to be able to reach a new audience, who will be able to support our work with children and adults with physical and learning disabilities in Dorset.”
The comedy night will be held on Thursday 16 February, and will be hosted by resident Master of Ceremonies, Andrew White.
Andrew White is flamboyantly repressed and optimistically cynical. Fast rising through the comedy ranks with an act that’s not to be missed.
Mclaine Beirne has been described as one of the most exciting new comedians on the circuit. He likes to share a few weird thoughts and embarrassing stories, mixed in with a few jokes.
Graham Whistler is an internationally acclaimed stand-up comedian, performing since 2010. As well as using very personal material about living with cerebral palsy, Graham is well known for his ‘candor and unique perspective’.
Steve Day has a light-hearted and self-effacing style. A familiar voice on BBC Radio 4, Steve has appeared many times on You and Yours, was a ‘token man’ on Woman’s Hour, and has appeared in two radio dramas, All Fingers and Thumbs with Bill Nighy.
One of the three owners of The Black Cherry, Rachel, commented: “We are really keen to support the work of Diverse Abilities, as we strongly believe theatre and comedy are for everyone. It’s great to be able to do this in such a positive and upbeat way, introducing people to great up-and-coming professional comedians, in our wonderful creative space.”
Tickets are £15 per person, or £25 to include a pizza and drink. Find out more and get your tickets at diverseabilities.org.uk/comedy.
