LIVE AT SHREWSBURY CASTLE
We've teamed up with Shrewsbury International Comedy Festival to take our hugely popular Severn Jesters Comedy Club outdoors at Shrewsbury Castle for more al fresco fun this summer.
This is your chance to see some of the best fringe comedy under the sun!
MC FREDDY QUINNE
Freddy is a comedic powerhouse - regularly performing his shamelessly opinionated, no-holes-barred stand up at the biggest comedy clubs in the country. He is known for his frank approach and often brutal punchlines, covering everything from topical news to universal truths. His Amazon Prime comedy special, "Quite The Catch", has amassed over half a million views.
One of the most sought after acts in the country due to his ability to interact with any audience and to seemingly conjure something out of nothing. His free flowing style and natural Mancunian charm breeze through in performances. His unique brand of "flattery and abuse" is done with a lack of malice and a big sense of fun. No relation to Stan Boardman.
Charlie George is an award-winning stand-up comedian and writer, LGBTQ New Comedian of the Year 2019, So You Think You’re Funny & Funny Women Awards runner up 2019. A talented and accomplished writer, Charlie was chosen to feature in Charlie Brooker’s writers’ room for Cunk & Other Humans 2019, The BAFTA nominated AntiViral Wipe 2020 and Death to 2020 for Netflix.
Irishman Andrew Ryan is one of the most exciting talents in recent years; in demand as an act and an MC at the biggest comedy clubs across the UK & Ireland. Andrew’s quintessentially Irish storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanour make him a natural stand up.
