The Albion, Penarth
Like a laugh? Like a drink?
We had the brilliant idea of bringing comedy to a place where you can get a drink. I know! Genius right?
See the hottest acts known to humanity* right here on your doorstep at the newly refurbished Albion in the Penarth – where they film Causalty. Laugh, drink, bring your mates.We do this on the FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH AT 8.00 PM.
Comedy at the Albion is the perfect antidote to Midweek Misery Syndrome. Yes, it IS a thing.
We will prove to you that “It’s Grin Up ‘Narth”
* considering our budget
Our opening line up:
Dorian Wainright – Talking about his infectious enthusiasm, bountiful energy, and natural story telling skills, are merely ways to avoid saying that he is both funny AND ginger. Cheerful and inventive, his persona lights up the stage,
David Hoare – This Bristol based musical comedian and right arm leg spinner is an asset to our opening night. David professes “a disdain for Flat-Earthers and a love of spreadsheets”. I’ll just leave that there.
Sam Beard – Fosters South-Coast Comedian of the Year Runner up, Sam Beard is an exciting new voice in comedy,delivering joyful observations,delightful self deprecation with a cheeky smile
“You’ll have the loveliest time watching Sam. Warm and friendly, and incredibly funny.” Steffan Alun
“An act that always delievers. Full of charm and laughs” – Caterpillar Comedy
Sianny Thomas – Star of BBC Sesh, Siânny’s comedy relates to relatives and having relations, chronicles chronic conditions, Welsh witticisms and tea. In little over a year on the circuit she has won many friends and fans alike.
“Sianny Thomas is a breath of fresh air. The real deal” – Paul James, Neath Comedy Festival
And our headliner …
Steffan Evans – If you haven’t seen his videos for BBC Sesh, or gigging all over the UK, where have you been hiding? A humble Welsh man with a self deprecating charm he touches on subjects like identity, family and bilingualism. Steffan performs all over the UK and performs in English and in Welsh on a regular basis. Described as ‘Welsh Welsh’ (Buzz Magazine) and ‘Indignant and very funny’ (Dolly Chicken Comedy)
All held together by the UK fourth most punctual comedian Dylan Jones. “strong material stonking lines” – Chortle
“an old-fashioned stand up with plenty of one-liners and quick gags … smooth stuff from a man who looked like a natural” Grin Reaper
“a very funny guy” – Noel James (yes, him off Britain’s Got Talent).
It’s free to get in, but we will be taking a collection at the end of the night to help with the running costs of the evening, and maybe by our incredibly talented acts a drink or two.
