Upfront Comedy presents
In the year of its 25th anniversary, Upfront continues to produce the most diverse shows for the most diverse audiences.
Sunday 2 April
Wil-E The outrageous Washington native is the favourite comedian of hip hop mogul P Diddy, and his US TV appearances include Def Comedy Jam and Bad Boys of Comedy, among a surprisingly long list for such an outrageous performer.
John Simmit Best known for playing Dipsy in BBC TV’s international smash hit children’s phenomenon Teletubbies, the Cuban-Jamaican brummie is a contrast to his furry alter ego, with comic observations of an adult kind, that ranges from the very silly to the sometimes clever. From politics to sex, to the environment … and no mention of Tubbie custard.
Thanyia Moore Feisty and sharp, Thanyia Moore is one of UK comedy’s rising jewels. Equally at home skewering modern life on a stage from a sarcastic south London viewpoint, or starring in parodies of music videos by the likes of Rihanna, Erykah Badu & So Solid Crew. Moore laughter is her motto, and she delivers.
Mr Cee Looks of a nerd, punchlines as heavy as Anthony Joshua’s right hook, North West London’s Mr Cee is on a mission to rebuild the world in his image, one joke at a time. Cee’s wit and charm have made him a circuit favourite across the country, ever in demand in all corners.
Sunday 7 May
