Steve Gribbin headlines latest Comedy Club at Borough Club

Steve GribbinSunday 27th March sees another array of  world class comics appearing at The Lancaster Comedy Club at The Borough in Dalton Square.

After a childhood in Liverpool spent idolizing the likes of Les Dawson, Tommy Cooper, and The Singing Nun, Steve Gribbin set out for London to study. Whilst at Goldsmiths’ College, he discovered sex, drugs and a small island off Perthshire.

It all went really wrong when he started to perform stand up comedy alongside the likes of Alexei Sayle, Jo Brand as part of the burgeoning 'alternative comedy' movement.

Steve has been unable to get a proper job since so contents himself with travelling the world, making people laugh. He has performed for audiences as diverse as the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and at Glastonbury Festival. The former Gorrilagram specialises in topical political sniping and short sharp songs that go for your jugular, despite not really being sure where that is.

Although highly respected by audiences and peers, he's had his fair share of bad gigs including a man dressed as Jesus Christ trying to strangle him at the aforementioned Glastonbury Festival; a heckler using a police bullhorn; and once had to break up a fight onstage between someone dressed as Andy Pandy and Andy Capp (absolutely true!)

Perhaps his proudest achievement to date is a parody song of Oasis he performed that resulted in Noel Gallagher sending word via his management that he was really upset about it!

As usual the Club's support acts are something to shout about; Canada's Marty McLean, who has performed at numerous Improv venues and the World Famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles and London's irrerverent Paul Ricketts. The night is compered by Ireland's Andrew Ryan.
