Introducing Cranbrooks brand new comedy club at the Queens Hall Theatre, Three Hilarious Acts, Two Intervals (with drinks available from our bar) and One Compere!
If you're looking to chuckle till you snort, giggle till you cry and laugh until it hurts, then come and join us at The Queens Hall Theatre for The Cranbrook Comedy Club. We will make sure you're cracking up, splitting your sides and rolling in the aisles.
Mark Simmons has had to pull out due to a TV appearance, it's probably better for his career than the Cranbrook Comedy Club, so we will forgive him (in time ). We will be updating our posters and contacting our existing ticket holders shortly but until then we are delighted to announce Mark's (even better in our opinion) replacement and it's two for the price of one, Woop Woop!
Brian Damage & Krysstal
The Guitar-strumming comic (Brian) and his sidekick (the glamorous Krysstal) who have appeared on Britain's Got Talent this year (2022). www.youtube.com/watch?v=INuNmwlXPn8 . They previously ran Pear-Shaped comedy club in London, cheekily billed as 'London's second worst comedy club. Bizarrely the only social media we can find them on is Myspace… surely this is part of their act?
" Legendary Brian Damage and top strangely straight-woman Krysstal are a one-off cross-genre act but they have echoes of The Bonzos, the heyday of music hall and some rather seedy country and western club. I laughed like a drain" Chortle ★★★★. " As daft and charming as they are funny" The Stage. "If you like daft stuff you'll love their new album" TIME OUT (London).
Carey Marx, writer and star of BBC Radio 4’s Intensive Carey. As seen on – Loose Women (ITV), The Stand Up Show (BBC1), Comedy Cuts (ITV 2), and World Stands Up (Paramount). www.careymarx.com/video/ “The mocking stance and unremitting march of cold logic will reduce you to howls of laughter” Daily Mail ★★★★ “Anecdotally debauched” Herald ★★★★★ “Sharp, sweet, cheeky, cynical, romantic and rude as he ever was.” Chortle ★★★★ “Obscenely funny, hilarious and curiously intelligent” Informed Edinburgh ★★★★
Ninia Benjamin, frequently appears at the Edinburgh Festival. She is also known for the BBC TV shows 3 Non-Blondes and Twisted Tales. Ninia has also featured in Lenny Henry’s BBC One show "Len on the One". She is becoming a regular reality TV regular, appearing in Sky One’s Cirque Du Celebrity and BBC Three's Celebrity Scissorhands. https://youtu.be/7I4Ej5J2las . If you recognise her voice but you're not sure where from then maybe you've overheard your kids watching the CBBC children's programme Tinga Tinga Tales. She provides the voices for the characters Eagle and Mosquito. "Bursting onto the stage in an explosion of energy, bombastic Benjamin certainly makes an attention-grabbing entrance" Chortle.
Our compere Paul T.Eyres who began his stand-up comedy career in 2005, and has since performed well over 500 gigs around the UK and abroad. Performing at such clubs as Jongleurs, The Comedy Store and London’s Comedy Cafe, his very energetic, highly interactive and yet slightly surreal brand of humour is creating a real buzz around the comedy circuit. https://youtu.be/VqM6zwDzVHE

Notflix is a totally improvised comedy musical based on an audience member's suggestion of a favourite movie, then using the location, key scenes and characters as a jumping-off point to create a brand new narrative. All scenes, songs and vocals are improvised spontaneously by the cast and a live band with no preparation or planning. It's improv, so every show is different; but what remains the same is a joy-filled, high camp, musical celebration of everything you wish a movie could be.
As a demonstration of its underground, (almost) overnight success Notflix has received widespread critical acclaim, including; Award-winning, five stars, total sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 – 2019 in the Gilded Balloon's flagship venue, the Debating Hall. Award-winning total sell-out runs at The Vaults Festival 2017 and 2018. Total sell-out run at The Brighton Fringe 2017 and 2018. Recommended as Pick of the Fringe in the Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, Marie Claire and Elle Magazine. Semifinalists in the Musical Comedy Awards and the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year. As seen on Sky News, STV and as House Band on Radio 5 Live.
Notflix. Because everything is better as a musical!
