The Key Theatre’s monthly comedy club promises another night of brilliant stand-up this month on April 19…

The latest show combines two of the hottest rising stars of stand-up with established comedian and multi-award winning performer Rob Rouse.

Rob got his first break in comedy by winning the So You Think You’re Funny New Act competition in 1998.

He also performed as part of the Big And Daft trio with Ian Boldsworth and Jon Williams from 1997 to 2002, taking three shows to the Edinburgh Fringe. In 2002 he took his first solo show to the Fringe, which was a sell out and gathered positive reviews.

His TV credits include presenting the first series of The Friday Night Project on Channel 4, alongside making several appearances on recent panel shows such as 8 Out of 10 Cats and Celebrity Juice.

Also performing on the night will be musical comedienne Carly Smallman, described by GQ magazine as ‘the most exciting female act in the country right now’.

Previous television appearances include The Rob Brydon Show and hidden camera show Secret Interview, and she’s written and performed sketches for BBC Comedy Online, as well as reaching the finals of the Musical Comedy Awards and Bedford New Comedian of the Year.

She’ll be joined by the winner of the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year 2012, Kwame Asante. Described as ‘an impressively poised and relaxed young comic with a fine sense of timing’ by Chortle, Asante is one to watch, reaching the final of the 2010 Leicester Square New Comedian Of The Year and was a runner up in the Loaded LAFTA’s Search for a Star competition in 2011.
