On Friday September 7th ‘The Very Best in Stand Up’ returns to Nantwich Civic Hall for the first show of our new season of comedy.
The season consists of 5 shows up to and including, our hugely popular New Years Eve show.
The compere & host for the evening will be a familiar face to comedy fans in the area. MARTIN ‘BigPig’ MOR is one of the most requested comedians who’s played in Nantwich & we’re happy to have come back & introduce 3 top acts with a wealth of TV credits between them, all making their Nantwich debut’s!!
The first act of the evening is SEAN COLLINS.
Canadian comedy star Sean honed his unique storytelling style over 20 years. In 2000, his hard work and determination led to him receiving two prestigious Canadian Comedy Award nominations for ‘Best Male Stand Up‘ & for his half-hour ‘Comic’s Comedy Special‘ on CBC. Now a headline act firmly established on the UK circuit, Sean has several television credits to his name, including The World Stands Up Special on Comedy Central, The Comedy Store Television Show on Paramount for 2005, 2006 and 2008, and 2010, the second series of Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow on BBC1. Sean’s debut stand up DVD will be hitting UK shelves this year.
ROB BECKETT is leading the pack of young British comics taking the circuit by storm.
Originally scheduled to play earlier in the year Rob had to cancel but will be making his eagerly anticipated debut for us at this show. With appearances on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Russell Howard’s Good News & his own show currently in development this is a real case of ‘remember you saw him here first’ as big things are expected for this exciting, young talent.
The final act for the evening is the multi award winning ADAM BLOOM.
Adam is one of Britain’s most inventive comedians. He has performed sell-out solo shows at the ‘96, ’97, ’98, ’99, ’01, ’04 & ’07 Edinburgh Festivals as well as performing a sell-out tour of Britain. He has also sold out theatres at festivals in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Wellington & Cape Town as well as making three visits to ‘Just For Laughs’ in Montreal.

Adam’s won several awards in the UK & is widely regarded as simply one of the best & most consistent comedians in the UK. Whoever your favourite comedian is, there’s a good chance that their favourite comedian is Adam Bloom.
Jon Mitchell of Civic Comedy said:
“We’re coming back with a bang as this bill features four very different and very brilliant acts. We’re absolutely stoked to have 4 acts of this level on the same line-up”
Mike Ramm goes on to say:
“When Rob cancelled earlier this year & asked if he could play in September we knew this line-up would be something special. Comedy fans will be hard pressed to find a bill with this level of quality anywhere, let alone for £10”.
The show takes place on Friday 7th September
