English Comedy at RITCS café: Scott Capurro

84149610_2570922386523485_2910922687683493888_o.jpgLine-up:

🔥Scott Capurro:
Camp and outrageous, provocative and controversial, catty and hysterical, Scott Capurro is a breath of fresh air in the increasingly samey and stale world of stand-up. Not for the faint-hearted, Scott’s un-comprising take on his gay lifestyle and white trash background make him as challenging as he is funny. A Perrier Award Winner comedian and actor who played a part in one of our most and one of our least favourite movies of all time: “Ms Doubtfire” and “Star Wars: The phantom menace”

“The most fearless and technically perfect stand up on the circuit.” – The Guardian

🔥Serine Ayari:
Her comedy career took off big-time last year. She was one of the discoveries during ‘Level Up’ in the Bourla Theatre, opened for the American comedian Andrew Schulz in Amsterdam and was one of the ‘New Talents of Gotham Comedy Club’ in New York. A stellar debut, that’s what we call it.

🔥Brian Jordan
is quickly becoming the name to know in comedy. He has a unique, laid back style combined with an old school (read outdated) take on life. He has performed throughout Europe and North America at legendary places such as Yuk Yuk’s, Laughing Skull Lounge, and Standup Antwerp, as well as many comedy festivals including the Utrecht Comedy Festival, Lund International Comedy Festival, and many more.

Jan 21 English Comedy at RITCS café: Jamali Maddix

Image result for jamali maddix
We’re very proud to announce that Jamali Maddix is going to Warm up & Kick off his international tour in our little club.
🎤Jamali Maddix
is one of most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years.
With an assured stage presence and considered material that comes from a fresh perspective, he already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond his years.
His natural confidence and charm allow him to tread gracefully across more sensitive topics leaving many of his contemporaries behind.
In his first two years of performing Jamali won the Comedy Café New Act of the Year Competition and the Chortle Student Comedy Award – all while making it look effortless.
Jamali has a plethora of gigs under his belt – he plays the Comedy Store and toured with them in the Middle East. In June 2015 he supported Jim Jefferies before a 3,500 strong Hyde Park audience. His debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe was a total sell out and received rave reviews.
He has also done a plethora of TV shows including The John Bishop Show, Live at the Apollo and 8 out of 10 Cats. Jamali also became one of the faces for the new Viceland TV channel with his own series “Hate Thy Neighbor”.🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
