Mostly Comedy hits Broadway.

One thing I did today - besides making the most of my new Fitbit (7884 steps and counting) - was put together a mailout to Glyn's and my mailing list, primarily promoting the extra Mostly Comedy date we're doing at the Broadway Cinema in Letchworth in March.

Whilst doing this - which took far longer than it should - I also wrote compiled the press release, which was good as it technically means I'm now ahead on the game, as I usually send it out much later. I thought I'd share it below, along with the poster for the show; if you like the sound of show, you should come on down (and bring 399 friends so we can reach capacity).


Press Release – 11.01.17

The duo behind Hitchin’s eight year-running Hitchin event Mostly Comedy (DOGGETT & EPHGRAVE) are delighted to present the first Letchworth gala version of the club at the newly reworked Broadway Cinema & Theatre on Thursday 2nd March, with ARTHUR SMITH and NORMAN LOVETT.

ARTHUR is best known for his appearances on BBC's Grumpy Old Men, QI, Have I Got News For You and The One Show, plus hosting BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club and BBC Radio 2’s Smith Lectures. He is a Spirit of The Fringe award-winning Edinburgh Festival stalwart, and the Olivier-nominated writer of An Evening With Gary Lineker.

He started out as a member of the 1980s’ alternative comedy scene. In addition to stand-up, he wrote and performed the critically-acclaimed Arthur Smith Sings Leonard Cohen (later broadcast on Radio 4), returned to this theme for his 2013 Edinburgh Fringe show Arthur Smith Sing Leonard Cohen (Volume Too).

NORMAN LOVETT is another veteran of the stand-up circuit. He played the original Comedy Store on countless occasions - once supporting The Clash, which he sees as a personal career highlight. Television credits include his BBC2 Sitcom 'I, Lovett' and Paramount Comedy's 'Asylum', though he obviously most well-known for portraying the ship's computer Holly in four series of 'Red Dwarf'.

He has received his fair share of broadsheet praise, with The Guardian describing his act as 'exquisite stand-up comedy', and The Times saying 'Lovett turns aimlessness into an art'. In 2013, he performed alongside DOGGETT & EPHGRAVE in a reading of their sitcom pilot ‘Nick & Joe’ at London’s Soho Theatre. He was recently heard alongside Lucy Beamont and Maureen Lipman in the BBC Radio 4 Comedy 'To Hull and Back'.

The gig will be emceed by the “polished, natural comedians” (Camden Fringe Voyeur) DOGGETT & EPHGRAVE). It takes place at The Broadway Theatre & Cinema on Thursday 2nd March at 8:00pm.
