Some might say sharing next month's Mostly Comedy press release in lieu of a proper blog post is a cheat, but those people probably weren't up until 3am yesterday and therefore too tired to share anything else coherent. If it's any consolation, I wrote it myself - plus it's partially about me. So, strap in:
Press Release – 18.04.16
a monthly comedy and music club, at the sun hotel in hitchin
While 5th May’s Hitchin Mostly Comedy with HENNING WEHN and Red Dwarf’s HATTIE HAYRIDGE is sold out, there’s still a chance to snap up tickets for the 12th May date with stand-up from KERRY GODLIMAN and DAVID EPHGRAVE.
KERRY GODLIMAN is an accomplished actress, writer and stand-up, best known for her portrayal of Hannah in Channel Four’s Ricky Gervais-penned sitcom ‘Derek’. She’s no stranger to other TV work, however, having appeared on BBC1’s ‘Live at The Apollo’, ‘Miranda’ and ‘Our Girl’, BBC2’s ‘Life’s Too Short’ and ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and C4’s ‘Comedy Gala’, to name a few.
Godliman has been in hot demand in recent years, writing and appearing in two series of ‘Kerry’s List’ for BBC Radio 4, supporting Micky Flanagan on tour and taking a handful of stand-up shows to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. She recently finished shooting scenes for the forthcoming Christopher Guest mockumentary ‘Mascots’.
The locally-based comedian, actor and musician (and back end of the duo behind Mostly Comedy) DAVID EPHGRAVE will also be previewing material from his forthcoming Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe show ‘Mostly David Ephgrave’, following his recent solo work-in-progress dates at the Bath Comedy Festival.
David’s credits with Doggett & Ephgrave include eleven seasons with ‘The Comedy Project’ at the Soho Theatre, numerous shows on the Edinburgh, Brighton, Camden and Leicester Fringe, plus the Time Out-recommended version of Mostly Comedy at London’s Leicester Square Theatre. A notable D&E career highlight was reading an episode of their self-written sitcom ‘Nick & Joe’ in the West End, alongside a cast that included Michael Barrymore and Norman Lovett (Holly in ‘Red Dwarf’). They also host a weekly show, ‘Doggett & Ephgrave: In Your Inner Ear’, on SG1 Radio.
David’s solo acting credits include portraying both John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the No. 1 Tour of ‘The Roy Orbison Story’, Buddy Holly in the UK / Ireland Tour of ‘Buddy Holly and the Cricketers’ and Richard in the West End production of ‘Dreamboats and Petticoats’. In 2015, he took his debut solo show ‘…and Ephgrave’ to the Brighton & Camden Fringe Festival ("A very likeable standup, confident but not cocky, and a lot of fun to spend time with...He's a natural entertainer." - View From The Gods). He also writes a daily blog (www.mostlydavidephgrave.blogspot.co.uk).
