Knock2bag SATURDAY @ Moth Club
Phil Wang + Rosie Jones + Abandoman + Spencer Jones + Angelos Epithemiou + Sara Barron + Sam & Tom
Phil Wang is a laid-back Eurasian stand-up comic with cerebral charm and a dorky swagger. He has been on Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and the short-lived but much-loved BBC Three sitcom Top Coppers. ‘Certain belly laughs’ (Sunday Times). ‘Brilliant... His technique is flawless, his observations astute’ (Chortle.co.uk).
sie Jones is a comedian with a penchant for being mischievous. Her cerebral palsy doesn't slow her down in the slightest. Catch her before she wobbles her way to stardom! As seen on 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Silent Witness. Finalist: Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2018, Amused Moose Comedy's National New Comic Award 2017. 'It's rare to see a comedian who exudes such joy' (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk).
Abandoman (rapper/comedian Rob Broderick and musician/vocalist Sam Wilson) are a favourite on the comedy, music and corporate circuits on account of their ability to interact with an audience in an unparalleled fashion. Watch your guests be turned into heroes, and watch the astonished faces of their peers as never-to-be-repeated songs captivate and enthral the crowd.
“Stars of the future!”
“A freestyle talent that is unparalleled anywhere in the market. No two shows could ever be the same as they pick out audience members and freestyle about them, with comedic timing and witty rhyming that’s so impressive it could’ve been scripted.”
“A proper party. Raucous, expansive and relentlessly hilarious”
“I’ve yet to see an audience not go nuts”
“Flight of the Conchords meets 8 Mile… Nothing short of genius.”
“For the whole hour we were enthralled by a comedic mastermind at work”
“Clever, quick-witted and audacious”, “Broderick’s ear-to-mouth coordination is Olympic standard”, “sharp surefire laughs” ★★★★
“It’s not long before he’s spitting genius couplets…masterfully fashioned into rave numbers, love songs or old-school rap.” “Razor sharp wit”
“The most original act we’ve seen in a long time. Go and see them.”
“Impressive and thoroughly entertaining”, “An hour with the Abandoman boys is like pure sunshine, be prepared for your face to ache from laughing and your hands to sting from clapping so hard.” ★★★★
“Stole the show…a revelation and a first in live comedy”
EVENING HERALD, IRELAND
Spencer Jones is a character comedian and creator of The Herbert - a grinning cockney prat specialising in prop, physical, visual, character, clown, music, old fashioned, retro and current comedy.
'... brilliantly creative prop work... could single-handedly give prop comedy a good name following a generation of hacks...' (Chortle)
The creation of Dan Renton Skinner – a member of the Dutch Elm Conservatoire Sketch group – Angelos Epithemiou is the owner of a burger van who wants to break into showbusiness.
He got his break in 2009, when he became a permanent team member on the revival of Shooting Stars, replacing Johnny Vegas on Ulrika Jonsson's Team B, before becoming the scorer.
Nominated for the breakthrough award and best sketch or character act at the 2010 Chortle awards.
Sara is an American writer turned standup living in London. While Stateside, she wrote for Vanity Fair, published two essay collections, and earned the role of host for the hit U.S. storytelling show, The Moth. This, in turn, gave her the bug for live performance. It also introduced her to her (British) husband, which prompted an eventual move to the UK. She’s since started standup. Her work has featured most recently on The Guilty Feminist, BBC R4Xtra, and Dave Gorman’s “Modern Life is Goodish”. This August, she made her debut at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Sam & Tom are naughty boys but they will defend their mums to the death, so please show due respect or you'll be in for a world of pain. (Thank you.) They'll be playing some pranks, doing some skits, and just all-round nailing the gig really.
