Wednesday 20 July: English Language Comedy Night

It is fantastic that someone has organised English language comedy nights in the almost ex-pat cultural desert of Bratislava once a month, but like all good things, it will disappear if it doesn’t get enough support. So make a note in your diary and get your laughing gear ready for another great night on 20 July, so that we can hold onto this regular event.

VENUE: KC Dunaj, Wednesday 20 July, kick-off at 8pm

Craig Murray is a multi-award-winning comedian and actor who has risen rapidly to be one of the most popular acts on the British comedy circuit. Hailing from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire (a town otherwise famous for international terrorists, fake kidnaps and ‘Britain’s Best Market’), charming northerner Craig will be immediately recognised by viewers of British television, due to many appearances playing roles as a stereotypical Yorkshireman! For example, he can be seen currently as the star of the hilarious advertising campaign for Plusnet Broadband. Considered by critics as one of the biggest rising stars in British comedy, Murray has already worked alongside many of the greats, such as Harry Hill, Stewart Lee and Hollywood legend Robin Williams.
What the critics say about Craig Murray:
“Bloody funny!” – Jo Brand
“…a great line in Northern humour” – spoonfed.co.uk
“Craig Murray knows his comedy roots… his material was well presented and recognisably funny” – Chortle.co.uk

Opening the show will be Australia’s John Robertson. Robertson has been touring the world with his comedy performances for the last 9 years, playing to packed audiences in Britain, the USA and his native Australia, with an unusual act which includes everything from impressions to solos on his ukulele! In 2010, Robertson won the prestigious “Best Comedy Performance” award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

What the critics say about John Robertson:
“The highlight was Robertson… he’s funny and sharp” – The Daily Telegraph
“…like a comic Fred Astaire… expert timing and rhythm… sheer bravura… slick” – Theatre Australia

Our MC for the evening will again be popular Slovak comedian Milan Sedliak. As usual at our comedy nights, you can expect plenty of laughs and a few surprises along the way too.

  1. Yes, some good laughs. That poor Romanian guy should have stayed quiet… The MC is actually quite sharp, you get used to him. Always an enjoyable evening.

    Great night John …..Craig and John were excellent , but not too sure about the MC , who appeared a bit lost in his own English jokes ( and his English ) and best we forget the Slovak newcomer, poor lad :-)
