A Fantastic November Barnstormers Comedy…

November: the traditional calm before the storm that is the Christmas silly season, and an opportunity to enjoy some top-flight entertainment in the manner to which we have become accustomed.

This month, frequent Barnstormers Comedy guest MC Dan Evans will be on hand to oversee the proceedings. On this occasion, he will introduce three more top acts from the London Comedy Circuit and beyond.
They are:
*hugely entertaining man-of-many-voices Stefano Paolini, ‘The best voice merchant on the circuit is Paolini; destined for far wider exposure’ – The Evening Standard.
*Propmeister extraordinaire George Egg, ‘A hugely entertaining variety turn – The Guardian
*and top-notch storyteller and raconteur Brian Higgins, ‘The people’s favourite comedian’ – The List.

More on this month’s entertainers…

Stefano Paolini

Stefano Paolini is a regular face on the national and international comedy circuit, where his mixture of stand-up comedy, characters, impressions and beatboxing have seen him perform across the U.K and also Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai, Singapore, Germany, Malta, France and Italy.

‘Cracking entertainment. Stefano is a fresh and welcome addition.’ – One4review.com

‘The best voice-merchant on the live circuit is Paolini, who has done some TV but is destined for wider exposure’ – the Evening Standard

‘A remarkable repertoire of voices and sounds’ – The Stage

‘Ace… an obvious star’ – The Scotsman

George Egg

Wildly brandishing the worlds’ second largest briefcase containing a battery of ridiculous props, George bounds onto the stage to perform one of the most original, interesting, innovative, and sweetly whimsical comedy performances you are ever likely to see. He has been hailed as ‘a Tommy Cooper for the twenty first century’ and through tears of laughter you’ll see why. A true cross between alternative stand-up comedy and music hall variety.

Brian Higgins

Brian is one of the most experienced headline acts on the comedy circuit. He moved to London in his teens from a small fishing Village in central Scotland. Armed only with a penknife, catapult and a bag full of tadpoles he set out to make his fortune. Twenty years later he still has the penkinfe. Brian has a real passion for comedy, and it shows in an impeccably delivered cheeky upbeat set, which never fails to deliver the goods.

Topical material alongside well cratfed stories of fatherhood, pregnancy and all related subject matters. He has a high turnover of material and that maybe one of the reasons he has been a headline act for the last fourteen years.

‘Daft but very funny’ – William Cook The Guardian.

‘The people’s favourite comedian’ – The List.
