Doors open 1:30pm – 2pm start
Comedy club favourite Otiz Cannelloni returns to headline this family show, featuring the legendary Rudi Lickwood, our own Nick Wills and Peter Bazely. Together they will be delivering a barrage of laughs to keep people of any age Rolling in the Aisles throughout this afternoon performance.
Otiz Cannelloni combines the illusion of magic and the wit of stand up to produce a hybrid comic creation. With a mind more suited to testing crash helmets, his performance fluctuates between sheer genius and downright stupidity. Just when you suspect he doesn’t have a clue, Cannelloni removes all doubt.
When this man is on stage the dressing room empties, as the rest of the comics rush to watch and learn from his mistakes. It’s taken years of practice to make something so simple look so difficult.
Despite various television appearances – The Stand Up Show BBC 1 – Stuff The White Rabbit BBC 2 – producers are prepared to forgive and forget, mostly forget. Still, there’s always the allotment – if it stops raining!
Voted most popular act to appear at Ludgershall’s Comedy Club ever.

“A laugh a minute.” THE AGE. MELBOURNE. AUSTRALIA

“The highlight of the night….the downbeat patter is exemplary, full of self-deprecating asides and splendidly daft one-liners.” CHORTLE
Maybe you saw him on ITV’s recent series, Show Me The Funny? As the top black comedian on the UK comedy circuit, Rudi Lickwood is far more than just a stand-up. Rudi’s recent achievements including earning his status in the ‘Black 100+’ awards for the greatest Black British Achievers, picking up a BECA award for outstanding contribution to comedy, and taking up a high profile request for Rudi to host an exclusive Brit Awards after-show party.
With a super confident playful personality oozing charisma, Rudi’s infectious charm has made him a desirable commodity. Using his sense of humour and razor sharp material, Rudi has built an outstanding list of Radio and Television projects alongside his headline performances at esteemed venues across the UK. Recent television and media projects include; Get me the Producer (Ch4) and Funny Business (BBC2), plus a nationwide project with Mediatheme hosting the most comprehensive comedy entertainment system to date. Rudi is currently working the series ‘Lickwood’ with BAFTA award winning writer Sharon Foster.
‘Irresistible…he’s going to be massive’ The Guardian
“Wembley should just about contain him” The Stage
‘Easily the funniest new comic I’ve seen this year’ GLR
After placing in the finals of the 2015 Musical Comedy Awards and Golden Jester competition, Peter still isn’t happy. “…His masterful, self-deprecating, and droll tone brought tears of laughter…” (The Church Times)
Peter describes his act as a mix of songs, poems and stand-up comedy, but others simply label it a cry for help. “Distinctive stuff…” (Bruce Dessau – Beyond the Joke)
Peter sites his debut Edinburgh Fringe Show ‘Crying by a Bench’ (2014) as a critical success. The show was part Stand-up comedy and part crying, but importantly (says Peter) it was always by a bench, and therefore a success. Since then people have been laughing at him all up and down the country. From the humble intimate gigs like that one in a shipping container in Deptford, all the way up to the dizzying heights of performing in front of the Queen (cover band) at Hull County Council’s Annual Charity BBQ, he really has done it all.
This year Peter is touring a performance of some of his classic songs (the ones you know and love him for) and also exclusively revealing to his loyal fan some of his more outrageous stories from his time on the road (mostly the M1 and M25).
