Burning Duck Comedy Club on Campus – 23/11/17
After our successful Student Comedian Of The Year Competition, Burning Duck Comedy Club returns to York University presenting a handcrafted artisanal smorgasbang of the weirdest, wisest and most wonderful local ‘up-and-coming’ musical, character, sketch, spoken word and stand up comedy performers at The Courtyard.
Our opening night features The Delightful Sausage – AKA Chris Cantrill, ‘Simple and bizarre punchlines with unerring skill’ ***** (EdFestMag.com), and Amy Gledhill, ‘Silly, vivacious and very funny’ (Richard Herring). Take a hilarious tour of the darkest corners of the internet in this inventive show, packed with a memorable mix of energetic sketches, unsettling illustrations and lots of yeast. These surreal shenanigans are ideal for those who like it strange, interactive and very, very silly. Ethically sourced and completely unacceptable, reserve your seat now to avoid disappointment!
Plus support from Jim Meehan (of Gein’s Family Giftshop and Funz and Gamez)
‘His earnestness is compelling’ (Scotsman). ‘It’s the personal touches that provide the moments of inspiration’ (Skinny). ‘All of what he has to say is genuinely important and needs to be heard’ (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘More than great comedy, it is a call to stand up for others and ourselves’ ***** (EdFestMag.com).
And regular stand up and sketches from York Comedy Soc
