Shrewsbury International Comedy Festival and Theatre Severn's ever-popular comedy club join forces to bring you a BRAND NEW, NEWLY IMPROVED OPENING NIGHT to kick off the 2018 Festival.

With MC DAN NIGHTINGALE

ACT ONE
LOST VOICE GUY

Lee Ridley AKA Lost Voice Guy can't talk but isn't silent. He is (probably) the first stand up comedian to use a communication aid. He won the BBC New Comedy Award 2014 and has been commissioned to write a sitcom for BBC Radio 4, which is titled 'Ability'. This is due to be broadcast in 2018. He has warmed up for the likes of Ross Noble and Jason Manford. An article about him in The Guardian said that finding humour in strange places was one of his strengths.

"A GREAT TALENT!" Jason Manford
 
ACT TWO
ROB DEERING

Rob performs stand-up comedy with music, using a guitar, a loop pedal and his voice to create impressive rock and pop soundscapes – and do jokes, of course. His late-night, live-music comedy pop quiz Beat This has become a festival institution, on London's South Bank, at Wales' Green Man and at Edinburgh. Rob has also used his own extensive knowledge of film, popular music and… well, 'general'; to win Celebrity Mastermind and a comedians’ special of the Weakest Link on BBC One.
