Funhouse Comedy brings an outstanding day of comedy to the covered beer garden stage at The New Barrack Tavern, Sheffield on Sunday August 1st with its Edinburgh Festival Preview All-Dayer. 

2.00pm – Jon Pearson 
Jon is heading out with his most ambitious show yet. No material, just him, you and a microphone. Jon just literally wants to know, 'What you Been Up To?'. 
Jon can normally be found MCing comedy clubs around the country and during this pandemic, he has really missed interacting with you all!

3.25pm – Aaron Simmonds
Aaron has been failing to stand up for 30 years; luckily, he is far better at comedy than standing up. He has a unique perspective on life, usually of people's belly buttons, which gives him stories to tell, and a sore neck.

4.50pm – Andrew Bird  
Andrew was the support act on Michael McIntyre's recent arena tour and has also supported Rhod Gilbert and Lee Hurst on tour, as well as performing internationally. Watching The Young Ones with his brothers as an eight year old, at two in the morning on Comic Relief, he realized then that he wanted to be funny in some way. With his personal appeal and superbly crafted, funny anecdotes, he captivates his audiences.

6.15pm – Ignacio Lopez 
Spaniard/Welshman with his unique brand of sarcastic observations and witty lines. He gives his audience a taste of what it's like to be the outsider, explaining cultural differences with hilarious results. During the pandemic he has focussed on putting comedy content online, streaming live comedy events, running a weekly quiz and teaching people how to make Sangria

7.30pm – Matt Stellingwerf
Matt has an effortless confidence, and is possessed of a talent for rapid audience interaction that is safe and unthreatening, with the disarming ability to amuse and make you feel smart all at the same time. Having previously been a criminologist, there is a certain degree of scientific reason to his material. He has an intellectual wit that is constantly on point, allowing him to mock others for their stupidity without coming across as obnoxious.

8.45pm – Howard Walker & Guests
Howard had a dream; he wanted to be a rock star. He tried. He tried so, so indifferently that he never succeeded. So after many years of half arsed-ness, he had another dream and put a bit more effort in. About time.  He dreamed he wanted to be a stand-up comedian, so this time he did it. You don't have to learn the guitar you see.
