The Funny Side of Tower Bridge

Join us for an evening of laughter at The Dickens Inn. Expect an upmarket, yet friendly, alternative to the usual live comedy experience.

Line up:

Ian Stone
Ranked amongst the top ten stand-ups in Britain by The Independent, Ian Stone is one of the most talented topical acts and comperes on the circuit. Edgy and provocative, with an easy-going manner and self-deprecating style, Ian is at great ease bantering with an audience. He has performed all over the world, toured with both Ardal O'Hanlon and Alan Davies and is also a member of the Comedy Store's critically acclaimed 'Cutting Edge' team. These days he's mainly famous for appearing as a guest on shows such as 'Mock the Week' and BBC Radio 5's 'Fighting Talk'.

David Mills
An established cabaret performer, David Mills won the New Act of the Year competition formerly run by the Hackney Empire in 2011, after turning to stand-up. Chortle.co.uk said - "His anecdotes and his attitude make Mills a charming character to spend time with; though you suspect he'd bitch about you the moment you'd left the room".

Francesco De Carlo
Francesco De Carlo was born in Rome in the late seventies. As a 5-year-old he wanted to be a football player when he grew up. How wrong he was. At the age of 30, he had his second big bright idea, to become a comedian. Since then he has worked as a writer for a couple of TV shows and won many national awards for comedy (Festival di Grottammare 2009, Talenti Comici 2010). Today he performs stand up regularly in Rome and has performed with Eddie Izzard and Dylan Moran.

Geoff Norcott
Comedian, impressionist, writer & actor Geoff Norcott's abundance of energy combined with a storming mix of impressions, observations, satire and rap, has made him a hugely popular act on the national & international circuit. A passionate sports and music fan, Geoff remains the only stand up in the country to give cricket a rock 'n' roll spin.

Compere: Gareth Kane
Actor, writer, singer, improviser and boxer. At 6'4" Gareth Kane is a man big on physique and big on talent.
