Woofers Comedy Club Christmas Special
Woofers Comedy Club Christmas Special
Direct from Pantoland in sunny Preston, your host Phil Walker steps out of his role as Buttons & into his role as MC at Woofers where he proudly Presents tonight`s Woofers comedy club which promises to be a Christmas cracker of a show featuring:

Headliner: Gavin Webster. Gavin Webster is a blunt-talking, motormouth Geordie who calls a shovel a shovel, which is exactly the sort of no-nonsense attitude that instantly establishes his authority over the audience.He hits them with a quick succession of gags, too that reinforces his status – but what a mixed bag they are. Some are weather-beaten old favourites, some are surrealist-tinged leaps of imagination, others yet are as sharp and funny as they are hard hitting.Gavin Webster started his comedy career as half a double act, going solo in 1995. He was a regular team captain in Channel 4’s Does Doug Know? and is an established name on the circuit. He has also supportedLee Evans, Jack Dee and Phill Jupitus on tour. In 2014, he was named UK Circuit Comedian of the year, as voted for by fellow professional comedians online. ‘Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you’ll find’ – The Scotsman. His "Pandas" routine is now part of comedy fokelore. Gavin is admired by his peers so much he was recently voted comedians comedian of the year.

Allyson June Smith. Direct from starring as Fairy Godmother in Cinderella with Phil at Preston we welcome back to Woofers the unstoppable talent that is Allyson June Smith. Since 2000, Allyson June Smith has been tickling Canada’s comedy scene from the moment she put down the chalk brush and picked up a mic. Playing to packed rooms has become like another day in the classroom for this former school teacher. Her credits include her own hour long Comedy Now special, appearances on CBC Radio’s hit show The Debaters, and the Winnipeg, Halifax and Just For Laughs Festivals, to name just a few. A multiple Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-Up, she performs for audiences ranging from corporations to the most rural of gatherings. Whether she was the emcee, support, or headliner, she's delighted them all. After working her way across Canada, Allyson now has taken her craft to the UK. Using her sassy blend of in-your-face stand-up and hilariously insightful commentary, she now works for major UK promoters and comedy clubs. It is her genuine and unique sense of humour, combined with excellent performance timing, that has made audiences laugh. This teacher-come-comic is ready to show international audiences why she is a sought-after fan favourite.

Support comes from Jamie Hutchinson. Jamie is a newcomer that is taking the circuit by storm in a fast way. Phil has gigged with Jamie loads recently and just had to bring him to Lytham for you to see him before he gets massive. "Highly entertaining" North West End. "Delivery that really turns the humour up a notch" Notts Comedy Review.
