Ace Lips Events: Comedy Show at the Old Court Room

PREVIEW By Steve Cooke

Another fantastic line up sees some of the very best on the circuit here in Rochdale.

MC is Graeme Rayner

Graeme started performing live comedy in November 2018. He sent a video of his first performance to David Baddiel, who said "If that's your first ever gig, you've got a future Graeme. I was going to say great future, but let's not be premature. Made me laugh out loud."

Since then Graeme has been performing at various venues around the country, and is steadily building a reputation, his progress slowed down only by a global pandemic.

He has shared a stage with well know comedians like Tez Ilyas, Alun Cochrane, Archie Kelly, Meryl O'Rourke, Scott Bennett and more.

Jonny Brook the award-winning Sit down, Stand Up!

Jonny, The happy face of dark humour who started bringing laughter to Yorkshire before sharing his talent further afield.

Brook is dry. Incredibly dry. You listen intently, and you’re never ready for the punchline. You can’t tell when it’s coming because of his delivery, but when it arrives it’s consistently a killer line. Every single time.

Crucial topics that he covers include love and poetry, a comparison to him and Lady Gaga, his parents’ divorce and sharing stories about living with legs that hate him.

Melina Fiol made her start in comedy in 2021. Since then, she has been selected as part of the prestigious Leicester Comedy festival Circuit Breaker's showcase and performed in clubs across the country and sold out her first split bill at Women in Comedy Festival.

Her strong stage presence and confident vulnerability are making her a distinct new voice on the circuit. Recently, she was selected to perform at the inaugural "Femmes and Thems" night at Manchester's Frog and Bucket Comedy Club.

Ignacio Lopez returns to Rochdale.

streaming live comedy events, running a weekly quiz, teaching people how to make Sangría, sitting on his sofa for 18 hours a day and occasionally crying in the bath.
