This month our show features:
“Impossible not to love” – HopScotch Friday
Tom Short is an award winning comedian that has a burning desire truly to entertain.
Tom’s genuine friendliness has earned him fans with almost everyone he comes across who fall in love with his charm, energy and quick wit. Tom is cut from a different cloth coming from Salford, being brought up working class and having meager beginnings in an environment that stamped out differences and creativity, he rose through this and is authentically himself for all to see and this endears him with every audience member he performs in front of this has been described as ‘Stealth comedy. The best kind’ (The Skinny).
and Kitty Messalina
Kitty Messalina is a comedic triple threat – a queer woman of colour. Her unique perspectives on prejudice, promiscuity and polyamory quickly earned her a nomination as a Finalist for the NCF New Act of the Year Award 2019. Despite being a newcomer to the circuit, she has performed with greats such as Rosie Jones and as tour support for Shaparak Khorsandi. Kitty is currently working on her debut solo show, “Is This Thing Turned On?” where she ponders identity politics, problematic crushes and Alexander Hamilton; her WIP performance of this was a sold out success at the Nottingham Comedy Festival 2021.
with team captain Bobbie Jones
“One To Watch” – Funny Women 2017
The Student Newspaper 2018- ‘Obvious Talent’
A combination of Dad Jokes and Daddy Issues, Bobbie-Ann Jones is one of the funniest prediabetic queers ever to come from Wolverhampton. They once made their counsellor cry and laugh at the same time, and they’re still proud of it. Is often seen carrying a single chocolate bar in a Sainsburys bag for life and rocking a killer rack.
They’ve been making funny noises out of their face since 2010 and guitar since 2016. Eddie sucks at writing in the third person, but promises to bring plenty of chat and stories from years of crushing comedy.
and Ash Preston
Ash has been on the circuit for over two years. He has performed all over the country with his eccentric storytelling and high energy stage persona. Once described as a ‘friendly misanthrope.’ Fiercely proud of his working class upbringing and underdog mentality… He also resembles several murderers.
with team captain Kirstie Summers
“Too attractive” – Chris
Our admin and promotor from day one, Kurt has become a regular feature of Blizzard Comedy’s Broadcast Avalanche over the past year. In that time she’s launched a new show where she chats to comedians, musicians and other creators every week, has cycled all over London and moved house twice.
and special guest host Andrew Marsh
Half of No Money in the Bank, one third of Social Distance Warriors and not-so-secret alter-ego of the greatest wrestler you’ve never heard of, Andrew Marsh’s relationship with reality may be tenuous at times, but we’re sure that won’t be an issue in a news show…
