Stand-Up Comedy – 2nd March 2019

Members of the St Peter’s School Association have organised an evening of stand-out stand-up comedy as a fundraising event. Cassington Village Hall, on The Green, will host four professional comedians for an audience of a hundred locals.

The headline act for the evening is standup comedian Troy Hawke, an erudite home-schooled 1930’s throwback… a kind of Errol Flynn of the high street. Educated, sophisticated, but utterly clueless. He tackles modern issues head on in his uniquely untimely manner.
“A must see” Daily Mirror
“His act was a comedy masterpiece” The Stratford Telegraph
“He left some of our audience blinded by tears of laughter. A rare genius”

Troy will be supported by Harry Stachini, Earl Okin and Christian Russell-Pollock.

Harry Stachini started performing comedy after attending a Hot Water Comedy course in 2013 at the tender age of 18. Harry is beginning to establish himself as a strong act on the comedy circuit with his easy-going style along with his likeable character which just adds to the brilliance of the stories and the unexpected one-liners that has crowds in stitches.

For years, Earl Okin first learnt his stagecraft in folk and jazz clubs. When they were replaced by comedy clubs, Earl moved effortlessly from one to the other and has been a sought after act on the UK comedy circuit for decades.
“The man is unmissable! He’s a joy! He’s a classic!, He’s a must.” Russel Hunter

Christian Russell-Pollock has 23 letters and a hyphen, so is literally one of the biggest names in comedy. Christian has been entertaining audiences across the country since his debut in 2016. His friendly, affable nature combined with his carefully crafted brand of incisive jokes and witty stories has seen him become a firm crowd favourite.
“A sharp and crafty gagsmith, with wittily obtuse takes on…an impressively wide range of topics…bringing flair and confidence to them all.” Steve Bennett
