The Comedy Avengers
A group of Devon based comedians will host an evening of free comedy in Plymouth this month as part of a new regular night.
The new coalition of comics are hosting free shows across the South West under the banner 'The Comedy Avengers' and it will include a monthly show at The Fortescue pub in Plymouth on the fourth Thursday of every month.
The comics, who perform nationwide on the professional circuit and have won a number of awards between them, offer a variety of styles including props, one liners and musical comedy as well as straightforward stand up.
Currently consisting of nine members of the emerging Westcountry comedy scene, the Avengers will be hosting nights in Plymouth, Exeter, Teignmouth and slipping across the border into Taunton. The regular members of this group, Luke Honnoraty, Sandi Smith, Marcus Gill, Louis Burgess Tom Glover, David Arnold, Richard James, Alf and Frankie Dore will write brand new, original material for each of the monthly shows and perform for the first time at these gigs.
These nights will be free entry in order to give Devon audiences a cheap night out full of laughter and opportunity for the acts to develop their sets in front of a local crowd.
As well as the regular Avengers, there will be occasional guest performers in order to encourage fellow new talent and to help the burgeoning South West comedy scene develop, a scene already full of many promising new acts.
The Avengers will be performing downstairs at The Fortescue on Mutley Plain, Plymouth on Thursday, November 24th at 8pm and then every foruth Thursday of the month from January. To see more upcoming show dates follow them on facebook at 'The Comedy Avengers and twitter @ComedyAvengers.
