CrazyBird Comedy Night at Stafford Cricket and Hockey Club

The CrazyBird bring their ever popular Comedy Club to Stafford Hockey & Cricket Club on Friday 9th February 2018 for a night of stunning Stand Up comedy, consisting of four professional comedians from the UK and International circuit.

The night will be hosted by MC Jon Wagstaffe “A naturally sharp & funny comedian, fresh like everything from Tewkesbury.” – Patrick Monahan, who will regale you with stories of his weekend, complete with raucous detours, unfinished sentences (not that it meant you couldn’t follow) and inappropriately mixed metaphors!

Opening the show will be Kiwi Sully O’Sullivan “had the audience showing their appreciation with fits of laughter and applause” channel4.com. Sully O’Sullivan’s been declared a highlight of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival by The NZ Herald, a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, featured on Australian TV’s ‘The Comedy Channel’, hosted a sell-out stand-up tour of Croatia, won Canada’s annual ‘Improvaganza’ Tournament, and in 2012 completed a 50 date UK tour alongside cult Aussie Comic Steve Hughes.

Blasting through the middle section will be Gavin Pond who will be treating you to his style of stand up that include a mixture of songs with his trusty guitar and story based anecdotes. Accompanying Gavin is our favourite German ‘Marti’. Marti loves to mock British local customs, language and habits. His naïve observational content and attempt at British wordplay give his storytelling a broad and entertaining appeal.

Closing the show we are delighted to have the superb Alex Boardman “…a rare mixture of wit and charm” The Guardian. Alex is now one of the most sought after acts in the country due to his ability to interact with any audience and to seemingly conjure something out of nothing. His free flowing style and natural charm breeze through in performances. His unique brand of “Flattery and abuse” is done with a lack of malice and a big sense of fun. Alex’s pedigree is of good stock having written material for John Bishop’s recent Stand Up tour, live material for Jason Manford on 8 Out of 10 Cats as well as warming up audiences for numerous household comedians.

Be quick folks as tickets are selling quicker than fidget spinners!

Door & Bar open at 6.30pm
Show starts at 8pm

Fireworks Flyer Drop Thursday 26th October

Hi all,

As you know, we do a flyer drop for both our big events of the year – the fireworks and the beer festival.

It would be much appreciated if you could spare an hour tomorrow night (Thursday 26th October), 6pm meet at the club, to deliver some flyers to homes around the club. This is our second biggest event of the year and last year we made over £5000. This money is integral to the club functioning. However, this is only possible if people come which won’t happen without the flyers.

So if you can, please lend a hand; don’t leave it to someone else.

The fireworks night itself is Sunday 5th November. Again if you can spare a few hours to help on the gate, in the car park, on the barbeque or selling drinks, that would be great – please email me (secretary@staffordhc.co.uk).

Cheers!

Buka
