The Lowdown: Shazia Mirza, an award-winning British stand up comedian and writer originally from Birmingham England (although she says she doesn't live there anymore, because she's doing quite well!) Now working all over the world Shazia has toured throughout much of Europe and the USA, has appeared on 60 Minutes on CBS, Last Comic Standing on the NBC network ... and closer to home, the ever-popular hit TV show 'Have I got News for You'.
Shazia could have married a rich man and lived in a mansion on The Bishops Avenue, with servants, bidets, and horses. But instead she chose to drive up and down the country for as little as ten
pounds, staying in dirty lurid bed and breakfasts trying to make people laugh. She thought of giving up, but no man wants to marry her, now that's she's dabbled in jokes and fingered a few white men
on the 38 bus!
She hopes one day to have a cleaner and a Jacuzzi!
A self-confessed 'comedy geek' Barry took to the comedy stage at the tender age of 21 and soon had audiences eating out of the palm of his hand. Using his own contrasting combination of irrepressibly cheeky and surprisingly dark material, he quickly found himself taking the national circuit by storm.
Finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr's Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more controversial.
Completing the line-up on the night will be Wayne The Weird who can truly bewilder his audience with some unique and often down right amusing close-up magic with cards, rubber bands - and other random objects! Housed in his 'magic jacket' you won't believe the crap he carries in the pockets!
Compere for the night is the affable and energetic Spiky Mike.
