Tuesday 24th March
The Coach House, Kings Arms, King Street, Tring.
This year's Tringe Aperitif continues with a fabulous line of great acts - Garrett Millerick, Jack Barry and Marise Gaughan make up the evenings wonderful line up. They are all testing their new shows in the most intimate of settings at the Coach House.
Come early and have a meal in the Kings Arms - Call 01442 823318 and tell them you're coming to the comedy.
My last two shows have been 'critically-acclaimed-sell-out-smash-hits'*, so I'm attempting to do it again with this one. Historically the third one is never as good as the first two, so I'm really up against it. I'll endeavour to make sure it's better than Terminator 3, or The Godfather 3...
Basically I'll aim for Rocky III - slightly overcooked, but plenty to enjoy for fans of the original, and a cracking soundtrack to boot. (*See Google)

In 2014, Marise's father killed himself, setting off a chain reaction that began in Amsterdam and ended sharing a psych ward with Kanye West in L.A. Stand-up comedy at its darkest about destructive choices made in a mental abyss. It's about fathers, inner darkness, and the funny stuff that can happen even as the world around you goes to shit.
“Original, personal and very funny” Jim Norton
“Scalpel sharp, dark comedy at its most brilliant best, disturbing you right out of your comfort zone” The Arts Review
Your best friend (and acclaimed stand-up) Jack Barry is worried about you. The world’s turned to shit and you haven’t been laughing enough. He’s going to roughly slap you around the face with his jokes and tell you to get a hold of yourself. Don’t worry – everything is going to be okay.
As seen on The Russell Howard Hour and in Catastrophe, Cuckoo and Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie. Writer for Mock the Week.
‘The finest of British comedy… effortlessly endearing’ ***** (EdFestMag.com)
