Jen Brister / David Mills
Saturday 18 June 8-9.30pm
Prepare to laugh until your face hurts in The Coro’s contribution to Ulverston’s funniest festival, Another Fine Fest.
Our headliner is the ‘outrageously funny’ Jen Brister (The Metro), a rising star of the British comedy scene. Fresh from recent appearances on Live At The Apollo (BBC 2), The Now Show and The News Quiz (Radio 4), Jen’s latest Edinburgh Fringe show Meaningless has received wide critical acclaim, riffing on everything from being driven round the bend by her ‘dogmatic, confrontational, angry Spanish mum’ to confusion around same-sex parenting.
Opener David Mills is another class act. A regular at the Edinburgh Fringe, his jokes are ‘beautifully crafted, sparkling little missiles loaded with wit’ (The Scotsman). As well as opening for Ed Byrne, Margaret Cho and Scott Capurro, the London-based American actor, comedian and cabaret performer may also be familiar to you from tv and film, having featured alongside Meryl Streep in Florence Foster Jenkins and Benedict Cumberbatch in Patrick Melrose, as well as various other stage and screen credits.
Please note the capacity for this event is unrestricted.
A short note on safety
Currently, as a mandatory condition of entry all audience members will need to wear facemasks, other than when having a drink, if you are medically exempt, or a child under the age of 12. Coro staff and volunteers will wear face coverings at all times. We also encourage all visitors to keep a safe distance from others as far as possible, to use hand sanitisers and wash hands regularly, and check in with the NHS Test and Trace app if able to do so.
