International Comedy from Upfront

International Comedy from Upfront

Upfront, “the most enterprising black comedy promoters in the country” (The Guardian) are back at Rich Mix with two extremely strong and exciting bills of cutting edge international comedy.

Kicking off on Sat 3 October with belly laughs from Brixton bus driver turned award winning comedian Slim, fresh from selling out Hackney Empire with his debut solo show. This very strong bill includes one of the New York’s major players Kyle Grooms with his witty tales of being a black man with glasses in hip hop obsessed macho America. Maureen Younger is stroppy, white and charming. Host is the Cuban-Jamaican brummie comedian turnedTeletubbie John Simmit.

Sat 7 November is going to be a hot one, featuring the Rich Mix debut of ‘comedy’s don’ Curtis Walker, who will one day be recognised as one of UK urban comedy’s greats. The Brixton heavyweight brings gravitas, TV credits and laughs galore to a bill that includes New Yorker Lewis Schaffer, loud, Jewish and lost in London. This bill also features the London debut of Ahmed B, possibly the circuit’s only dreadlocked Swedish comedian. Up and coming south London comedy hotshot OLA completes a bill that is hosted by Cuban-Jamaican brummie John Simmit.
