Our March club night features headliner Gavin, described as ‘Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you’ll find’ (The Scotsman), ‘Like a cross between Bill Hicks and Geoff off Byker Grove’ (Ross Noble) and ‘His daftness is little short of surreal genius’ (The Stage). Ably held together by your host Nick Wills, the show is completed by “comic master” Marc Lucero (Chortle) and “the energizer bunny of impressionists” Luke Kempner (Huffington Post).
Gavin Webster has been on the rise. He’s been on the rise for Eighteen years. After making his modest debut in a pub in Gateshead in February 1993 he’s done about three thousand gigs from Aberdeen to Abu Dhabi, Manchester to Melbourne and Hartlepool to Hong Kong. Famed and respected by his peers for his uncompromising and unusual approach and distinctly original routines, he now boasts a large cult following round the country and particularly on his native Tyneside where he sells out theatres with his one man ninety minute shows. Hard edged routines, quick-fire pastiche pieces, moronic jokes and sardonic songs, his unique style has brought him this kind of praise and attention.

A former market trader Marc only started to perform comedy until in his forties and has been taking the scene by storm for over 20 years now. A unique and sophisticated take on the complications of twenty first century life as a senior with some strikingly thought provoking material. “Lucero certainly has the comic instincts and high-quality material that would shame many a more successful act.” – Chortle review

An exceptionally talented impressionist, Luke garnered global attention in 2012 with his hit viral video Downstairs At Downton. Since then, Luke has gone from strength to strength, taking his one man show The Only Way Is Downton (described by the Daily Telegraph as a “remarkable tour de force”) to theatres and festivals across the UK, including Latitude and two years at the Edinburgh Fringe. He has also taken the show to Moscow and recently toured an American version, entitled America’s Got Downton, across the USA. 2016 saw Luke return to the Edinburgh Fringe for a sell-out run of new show Judi Dench Stole My Heart.
As well as his live work, Luke also has a burgeoning television and radio career. He recently created and starred in his own review show for ITV2, entitled Luke Kempner’s Impression of 2015, is a regular cast member of BBC3 comedy series Murder In Successville, has appeared on Comedy Central’s Drunk History and has also performed impressions on both Big Brother’s Bit On The Sideand Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.
Luke started his career in musical theatre, playing Marius in the touring production of Les Misérables as well as taking roles in Avenue Q and South Pacific. A graduate from The Guildford School of Acting, he also plays the piano, is a puppeteer and classically trained singer.
