Michael McIntyre for Folkestone Comedy fest!

Michael McIntyre for Folkestone Comedy fest!

They're calling it a warm up, tickets are 25! Guess they have to stump up a lot to get a big name like that to appear at a small new venue... Friday 22nd May, get in quick if I was you. Hmm, our baby is due that weekend, think we can still go?

Michael's brilliantly engaging delivery and effortless rapport with the audience have led to him to be hailed as the best new stand up to emerge in a decade and has earned him a sell-out DVD, countless television appearances and an upcoming BBC ONE series, "Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow".

In preparation for his 30 date UK arena tour this autumn, Michael will perform a number of warm-up gigs around the country this spring and summer and we are delighted to be welcoming him to Quarterhouse.

Quarterhouse? CHEESEGRATER, surely, don't they know the name of their own venue?


Lots more lined up for the Saturday, Sunday and bank holiday monday too, see standupfolkestone.com

This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and things, and I hear it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
