Tonbridge Comedy Nights Featuring;
Nick Page - Headliner
Nick Page is a disgraced former Daytime TV presenter and convicted forger who revels in the kind of stories most people would want locked in the darkest cupboard. His unique rapid fire delivery will leave you wondering how anyone can get through so many words so quickly, and how he’s escaped justice, or at least retribution, for so long. He is, quite simply, the best act you’ve never heard of!!
‘Roguish comic Page is a bear-like man with a fund of barely believable stories about life, love and brushes with the law’ – Guardian Pick of The Week
‘Cynical but hilarious’ -Galaxy Radio
‘The very best story teller on the comedy circuit’ – Rhod Gilbert
Jason Simmons - Support

‘The audience lapped him up’ – Ellie Taylor (Snog, Marry, Avoid)
Russell Hicks - Compere
Anyone who has seen Russell Hicks knows that it is never the same show twice. Taking a different approach to most comedians, Russell Hicks weaves improvisation with stream of conscious delivery that has moved many audience members to return for two nights in a row. Nothing in this biography can do his act justice other than to say, you just have to see him live.
“Astonishing, astonishing and astonishing. He simply took the roof of the place leaving people talking about his act all night. His entire 20 minutes was totally improvised based entirely on audience interaction. It did help that we had one member of the audience who looked like the twin brother of Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and provided Russell with so much material to improv on. Based on this one gentlemens comments, Russell created a world where he is doing a West End show about willy-helicopters, the 28th October is now International Toothpaste Day and his performance last night was just a figment of the gentlemans imagination. The audience were at times almost collapsing with laughter on the floor and I was one of them. Watching Russell Hicks last night was reminiscent of watching early Ross Noble on stage.
