Stars coming out for St Albans theatre’s comedy night

NEW comedy club HOWLIN will be welcoming television presenter Anna Williamson, Ben Goffe and Rusty Goffe – one of the original Oompa Loompas – as audience guests next Sunday, February 4, at The Maltings Arts Theatre in St Albans.

HOWLIN also welcomes a special appearance by Kev Orkian onto the stage and Tinky Winky from the Teletubbies!

The comedy club opened its doors for the first time earlier this month featuring Miles Crawford, Jim Tavare, Tony Cowards and Nick Wilty. February’s show has Simon Clayton, famously described by Loaded magazine as “a bottle of HP sauce, fat, brown and fruity” as host.

The first act, Eddy Brimson, has performed all around the world and he will be followed by Dave Thompson who has worked for numerous hit shows and very closely with Harry Hill. But he is best known for being Tinky Winky in the BBC’s hit children’s show Teletubbies.

HOWLIN’S third act of the night is Rich Morton who has built up a formidable reputation having completed several UK tours with Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jo Brand, Lily Savage and Phill Jupitus. Rich, winner of the Time Out Comedy Awards, is also a regular on Channel 5.

The all round-entertainer and concert pianist best known for his Armenian character The Foreigner said he was proud to be performing alongside some of the UK’s best comedians at HOWLIN.
