In Blizzard Comedy’s Broadcast Avalanche, we get topical in our own unique way. Each episode, two guest comedians will join our regular team captains to test their knowledge of the month’s news in a series of games put to them by our host and founder Jonny Collins.
Joining us for our second episode we have:
On (reigning champion) Kurt’s team
Queer, feminist, and occasionally filthy. Quenby shares stories about gender, sexuality, and being a broke ass bitch so the audience can share a laugh at their (mis)adventures.
Erika’s razor-sharp, dark and visceral writing paired with precise delivery makes her one of the most exciting young comedians on the circuit. Originally from Toronto, Canada, Erika now lives in the UK after completing the Comedy Writing and Performance Program at Salford University.
In 2019, she was crowned winner of the Chortle Student Comedy Award, was the recipient of the Mike Craig Comedy Award, and the Hot Water Roast Battle Champion. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, Latitude Festival, and the Toronto Sketch Festival. Erika has recently written for the upcoming fourth series of Comedy Central’s Roast Battle.
“If you think Frankie Boyle’s too soft, Ehler could be the comic for you” — Chortle
And on Thom’s team
“Stanier has a knowingness behind the daftness…lovely, feelgood stuff” – Chortle
“An ernestly giddy comic with an impressive arsenal of jokes… beautifully, banally silly” – Gigglebeats
“Stanier is a master of the misleading punchline, and by far the most fun performer currently on the North West scene” – Manchester Wire
“Astonishingly fresh, inventive and totally hilarious.” – JFL Comedy
Khalid Winter is a comedian who can be seen performing at some of the top comedy clubs around the UK . After growing up in Manchester he moved to London to study Archaeology, later becoming a professional archaeologist. His comedy draws on his experiences growing up on a council estate in South Manchester, having a mixed-race family, being unemployed as well as his later experiences studying and working as an archaeologist. His comedy contains thoughtful social commentary but always from a personal perspective.
“Winter’s strength is in his eye for a good line. Beautifully written with just the right mix of accuracy, understatement and humour.” – Notts Comedy Review
