Josie Long and James Acaster and The Pictish Trail

Be Honourable Saturday 27th November 2010 doors 8.00pm for 8.30pm (the comedians in this show will probably swear (strongly sometimes) if that’s not for you we have other shows with comedians who won’t) Tickets £12 (£10 concessions) on the door. All advance tickets £10 from Waterstone’s, High Street, Kettering; St Andrew’s Church; Kettering Tourist Information and online at We Got Tickets (+£1 booking fee per ticket)

2006 Edinburgh Newcomer Award Winner Josie Long’s 2010 show (one of five shortlisted yesterday (25th August) for the 2010 Edinburgh Comedy Award). She writes:

“BE HONOURABLE! I plan on making this show excellent. ARE YOU IN?

A Ramshackle Call to Arms about Politics, Complacency, this man I met one time, imaginary father figures and breakfasting…

*Something for everyone*”

Good news for people who like Josie Long: Josie Long is back with a new show after a year’s break. It should be a lot of fun. Are you a fan of breakfast-based humour? Nye Bevan? What about tired looking women from Kent? If so, I can fully guarantee that this show is perfectly tailored to suit your comedy needs.

Josie Long is a remarkable and unusual comedian. This show will be the best one yet.

Praise for Be Honourable:

Josie Long returns with a tremendous show that’s warming like her porridge fetish and passionate like her political convictions **** (The Scotsman).

‘What great comedy can be. Inspired and inspiring’ ***** (Metro).

Long’s enthusiasm is her trademark and it is one of the most delightful things about this show. ***** (Fringe Guru)

Long has always had ebullience and charm: with this wise, clever and utterly delightful show she proves that she can back all of this up with comedic maturity. ***** (Three Weeks)

Support comes from Johnny Lynch – The Pictish Trail, folk singer/songwriter, vocalist of Silver Columns. Loads of his music can be found at his myspace page.

AND KETTERING’S OWN JAMES ACASTER

James is a rapidly rising star of the British Comedy scene, an engaging storyteller with a naturally comedic physicality and manner. He effortlessly gets audiences on his side and keeps them there. Bottom line: he’s funny. He just is.

As reviews website Broadway Baby puts it: James’ “gauche physicality is inherently funny, a trait he knows how to use to maximum effect; the merest gesture can have the audience laughing out loud. Not that this anything as simple as a slapstick act; his material is extremely strong, and he is able to blend his anecdotes with some excellent improvisational moments.”
