We all know what doom and gloom the Post-Festive Season can bring so we’ve got together with compere Jeff Lane and compiled two great evenings of comedy to brighten up the New Year. The first evening will feature:
Wayne the Weird
Brian & Krysstal
Now heading for the ‘twilight of her life’, Basingstoke’s Jan Jack boasts a five o’clock shadow and an air of despair. With beautifully structured observations and witty poetry, this ex-secretary talks about growing up, the trouble with relationships and the traumas of office life. Usually cheeky, often naughty, always funny……
Jan is also the promoter & founder of Basingstoke Comedy Club ‘Jan Jack’s Laughter-House’
“If you want someone to deliver big laughs with real charm then you can’t go wrong with Jan Jack””
Maff Brown, Outside the Box Comedy.
“Great joke-teller. Warm and funny with a real twinkle in her eye” Chaz Collett – Barking Mad Comedy
“I’m not a fan of your humour Jan” MD Basingstoke area…circa 1999
Wayne the Weird‘s route into magic came 14 years ago after receiving a book by David Blaine, Wayne began experimenting with a couple of the ideas and concepts mentioned in the book. Ever since then Wayne has been hooked on magic, be it perfoming close up or on stage.
Wayne regularly entertains audiences all over the country on the UK comedy circuit, performing close-up magic in the hands of all around.
Wayne’s comedic skills have seen him perform on stage internationally as well as all throughout the UK from comedy clubs, castles and bowling alleys to golf clubs, churches, and even Zippos Circus!
Since meeting at The Edinburgh Festival in 2000 Brian & Krysstal have entertained and delighted all kinds of audiences at comedy clubs, cabaret nights, festivals, corporate and private functions in locations far and wide. Regular fixtures at The Edinburgh Festival for eight years, the duo have worked all over the UK as well as Germany, South Africa, Gozo, Spain, Denmark, Ireland, Australia and of
course… Peckham. Brian is infamously grumpy and deadpan, while his assistant Krysstal is glamorous but ditzy. The combination is unique and very funny. Their timing is exquisite, their humour dry and sometimes bawdy. Brian & Krysstal’s first
CD “Silly Songs” recorded in 2001 is now available on iTunes. Wherever they go their baggage goes with them, including several instruments (not always musical in their hands). Individually they have many years of experience in the entertainment industry, Brian as a musician and Krysstal as an actress in Australia. Their unconventional vaudeville-style act is punctuated by silly songs, the
odd bit of Spanish dancing LOADS of jokes and LOADS of belly laughs.
