Comedy Power Down

The Power House is home to a brand new night of entertainment, Comedy Power Down, born out of a partnership between Metropolis Group, Funny Women and Red 24 Management.

Comedy Power Down aims to showcase a mix of the very best upcoming and award winning comedy and musical talent. The launch night sees a metrosexual mix of extraordinary hilarity, following a predominantly musical comedy theme with some stand-up, character and sketch thrown into the mix.

Hosting the evening is Canadian songstress and extremely likeable Mae Martin. Armed with a guitar she is sure to win over the crowd. She was voted one of the ‘funniest people in Toronto’ by Now Magazine and certainly proves herself worthy of this title.

Tom McDonnell, ‘Acoustic guitar wizardry with witty erudite lyrics’ Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2010, Nominee.

Jay Foreman, Musical Comedy Awards 2009, Best Newcomer. Jay will delight with his funny songs. ‘Likeable presence, elegant performance and an effective collection of gags’ Chortle.

The show will also feature a host of female comics fresh from the 2010 Funny Women Awards. Gemma Whelan will delight with her spinsterly alter ego ‘Chastity Butterworth’. Gemma was the first ever winner of the Funny Women Variety Award 2010. Julia Clark, ‘A bundle of nasty hilariousness’ a runner up in the 2010 Awards and all singing, all keyboard playing Clare Lomas,
2010 finalist.

Javier Jarquin will bring a sprinkle of ninja magic with him. He was the Winner of ‘So you think you’re Funny’ 2007 in New Zealand. ‘Jarquin flips the whole concept of card trick on its head’ The List.

Henry Ginsberg has a string of comic accomplishments resulting from his surreal, dark but very funny take on life. Henry was the winner of Reading Festival Best Newcomer 2010.

Metropolis Studios is the most successful independent recording, mastering and production facility in Europe, offering unrivalled services for the Music, Film & TV industries. Funny Women is the leading female comedy brand and best known for its ground breaking annual Funny Women Awards, now in their 9th year.
