The Comedians

Fiona Ridgewell

So she wants to be a boxer, in the golden ring...Fiona Ridgewell has a few obstacles she has to overcome first.  Join her in this stand-up show about her upbringing, family and the decision to take up boxing, as she delivers a punch or two.

'Fiona Ridgewell has funny bones and an easy warmth on stage.' Julia Chamberlain. 

'I could easily imagine seeing Fiona as a panellist on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown or Would I Lie To You?' EFC

Josh James

‘Mrs Black’ tells the story of Essex Comedian of the Year Josh James and his unbreakable bond with Grandmother Kathleen Black, an unforgiving, aggressive and no nonsense 96 year old cockney straight from the mean streets of East London.

Throughout her life Mrs Black has survived The Krays, poverty and even a World War… nonetheless her final fight against old age looms and she is heading into battle alongside her grandson, equipped only with a sense a humour.

During this performance of uncensored stand-up comedy, leave your political correctness at the door and come prepared to laugh in the face of all that’s morbid.

'Josh is one of the best newcomers on the circuit, but if all fails he'll probably end up on love island.' - the Stand-Up Club, london

'He's a proper Essex geezer and is actually super smart underneath the persona... I loved it!' - the Stand Comedy Club, Newcastle
