GREGARIOUS, COCKY, outspoken, back-slapping, pint raising, Bulldog spirited, and brimming with Jingoism, it can only be The Pub Landlord, and he will be serving the laughs in your front room.
The Pub Landlord, the brilliant alter ego of British comedian Al Murray, will headline the next Comedy KARLnival online tomorrow, February February 5. The show will be hosted by Karl Spain and see sets from Bernard Casey and Aideen McQueen.
Al Murray's Pub Landlord is a brilliant vehicle in which Murray explores, skewers, and satirises English nationalism, prejudices, and imperialist attitudes. He is a well known face on television, from such series as Al Murray’s Happy Hour (ITV ) and Time Gentlemen Please (Sky 1 ). He has also appeared at The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1 ), Stand Up Central (Comedy Central ), and hosted Live at the Apollo (BBC1 ).
Hailing from South Kerry, Bernard Casey is a new brand of comic - young, rural, and very much a 21st century man. His witty observations of young men trying to pull in nightclubs, boy racers, the Irish and French oral, and wildly off topic tale of his insane jealousy of his dog has won over audiences (70,000 subscribers and seven million online views ). Indeed, no less a coming than Tommy Tiernan, said of him: “A wonderfully well-crafted performer with a great old school style of storytelling."
Aideen McQueen reached the final of the “Funny Funny” comedy competition after just her third gig. She reached the semi-finals of So You Think You’re Funny at the Edinburgh Festival in 2014, and has played the International and The Laughter Lounge.
