WinterFest Comedy Night

Join performers from the Wivenhoe Funny Farm comedy club who are all giving their time to support Winterfest’s causes and are a mixture of more established circuit comedians and local comics who’ve been performing between one and five years.

Our headliner, Ali Warwood, is Cambridge based, but originally from Birmingham. She was a finalist in Colchester New Comedian of the Year in 2016 and the same year was shortlisted for a “Breaking talent” award at the Birmingham Comedy Festival and has worked as a comedy MC with BBC Cambridgeshire.
Ali will be supported by Ipswich’s Tim Coles and Alex Freimuller, two very different stand-up comics, one with a likeable everyman take on life, the other more surreal and deadpan, but both very funny.

Also appearing will be Colchester’s David Hughes (an aficionado of very silly puns) and Steven Whittaker, a newer comedian but also a fan of one-liner jokes. Andy Bucks brings his silly and slightly nerdy brand of comedy. Andy won the Chortle Student Comedy Award in 2021 and has performed at Latitude festival and on BBC Radio 4 Extra, so he’s clearly one to watch. Martin Westgate from Norwich has written and performed stand up sets and sketches for the BBC New Comedy Show, but may be remembered for taking the mickey out of Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent (although it didn’t end well for him, it was fun to watch!).

Everyone will be in the capable hands of MC Hazel Humphreys from the Funny Farm – and the pub will be offering 25% off burgers and Budbowls. Not to be missed!
