Join us on Friday 1st May 2020 at The Old Brewery Store (in Faversham, Kent) for a night of fantastic comedy! Featuring headliner… KAE KURD!!

 

Join our MC for the evening, KONSTANTIN KISIN, as he leads you through an evening of fantastic stand-up comedy! Featuring performances from the following Comedians, from the UK’s Comedy Circuit: WINTER DOMINUS, ADAM MORRISON JONES, MARISE GAUGHAN, ELLIE CALNAN and our headline act for the evening… KAE KURD!

 

Smart, sharp and brilliantly astute, Kae Kurd is a young British-Kurdish stand up making a serious name for himself. Passionate about making politics accessible to his peers, his comedy presents beautifully crafted slick routines with confident cutting edge flair. 

 

In 2016, he was part of the Pleasance’s prestigious Comedy Reserve showcase and supported Dane Baptiste on his nationwide tour. In 2017 Kae took his debut hour to the Edinburgh Fringe achieving excellent critical acclaim. His unique back story as a child refugee and his emergence from the Black British comedy circuit totally shining out amongst the newcomer landscape. He went on to support Mo Gilligan on his huge Coupla Cans tour.

 

2019 was another standout year for Kae. He is now recognised as one of the UK’s fastest rising online comedy stars, creating and curating short form content across a range of platforms, particularly notable for this hit podcast Quota’s Full. His debut Stand Up Special Kurd Your Enthusiasm was another huge success with Joe.co.uk’s Creative Director noting “It’s intriguing – and exciting – that a performer with such a slick mainstream swagger is able to weave so many socio-political issues into his act.”

 

TV credits include Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), Don’t Hate the Playaz as both writer and on screen talent (ITV2), The Tez O’clock Show (Channel 4) Know Your Rights (own series on Channel 4 OD), Comedians Solve World Problems (Comedy Central) Three Guys Eat (BBC Three) and BBC Asian Network’s Big Comedy Night.

 

His radio appearances include A Night of International Comedy for BBC World Service and Best of the Fringe for BBC Radio 4 Extra. He’s also a regular radio presenter on BBC Asian Network.

Marise Gaughan is an Irish stand up comedian based in Dublin/London. When she first started comedy in Los Angeles in October 2016, she vowed to never lower herself to talking about sex. Now she talks about little else. That’s showbiz baby! Her style has been described as dark,  honest, and uncomfortable, but uncomfortable in a good way. A reviewer once wrote “she doesn’t work the room, she endures the room“. That reviewer is dead now.  Her debut show, Drowning, debuted at Dublin Fringe Festival last September, where it was nominated for two awards. She has supported Rob Delaney and Ari Shaffir on tour this year.

“Provocative, insightful, and often uncomfortable, but uncomfortable in a good way. When Gaughan interrogates her own personal experiences her scalpel sharp, dark comedy is at its most brilliant best, disturbing you right out of your comfort zone." -The Arts Review

"Original, personal, and very funny" - Jim Norton

 

Over the last 7 years Winter Dominus has toured internationally, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, Japan, and continues to make waves into the Asian markets. His fearlessness on stage coupled with devastating punchlines make him an excellent addition to any comedy night.  His crowd work ability has been compared to fellow Irishman Andrew Maxwell. He has appeared on Channel 4 in the UK, TV3 in Ireland and most recently heard on BBC Radio.
