Half Moon Comedy Club

Monday 4th October, 8.30pm start.

The Crescent Theatre’s semi-regular comedy is back with another fabulous line-up for The Birmingham Comedy Festival!

Karen BayleyHeadliner – Karen Bayley

Karen began her comedy career back in 2000 and since then has gone from strength to strength. Her bold, no nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike and her claim to fame to date being the first woman (in its history) to win the gong show at The Comedy Store.

Karen is also resident compere of her own club in Sutton Coldfield, and in 2004 she took a show to the Edinburgh Festival

I saw her recently and she blew my socks off. She doesn't dwell too much on "lady issues" Funny in her own right, she was brilliant, clever and she's gonna be huge.” - BBC Tees Online

“A very good act” - Jasper Carrott

Annette FagonWith Support from ANNETTE FAGON

Annette Fagon is a loud and engaging comic... making fast progress on the UK comedy circuit.

Growing up as that rare thing in the midlands of the 1980s, the daughter of a Jamaican newsagent mother, has clearly left its mark.

With this sort of retro observational comedy, she's just like Peter Kay would be - well, if he were female, black and from Leicester” - Chortle
