Three young comics are planning to turn up the heat at Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree this winter with a triple whammy of hot-off-the-press funny performances.
First up will be the world-class stand-up Jimeoin - star of Live at the Apollo, Royal Variety Performance, Channel 4 Comedy Gala 2012, Best of Edinburgh Comedy Festival, Jason Manford's Comedy Rocks, Best of Just For Laughs and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow – taking the stage on Thursday, November 8.
He will be followed on Sunday, November 25, by Scotland’s award-winning comedian and internationally acclaimed half-man-half-Xbox Daniel Sloss – also a familiar face on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, 8/10 Cats and Mock the Week, as well as his own BBC show The Adventures of Daniel.
And making his Lemon Tree debut will be rising young star Chris Ramseyon Friday, December 7, with his new solo show, Feeling Lucky, which will debut at Edinburgh Festival in August.
Tickets for all three comedy gigs go at salethis Friday (May 25) online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
“We are delighted to bring these rising comedy super-stars to Aberdeen,” said Aberdeen Performing Arts press manager Joyce Summers.
“The Lemon Tree is an important venue on the comedy circuit for young stand-ups and there’s nothing like some awesome laughs to lift the winter blues!”
A sharp-tongued and sharp-witted Irish comedian from Australia, Jimeoin made his Lemon Tree debut last and is renowned for his cheeky and sometimes surreal sense of humour and his razor-sharp take on the absurdities of everyday life.
Having started doing stand-up when he was 16, Scots funnyman Daniel Sloss appeared on a host of TV shows and sold out three Fringe seasons - all before he started to shave!
He was the youngest stand-up ever to perform a solo season in London’s West End and has performed in Europe, Australia and South East Asia.
Chris Ramsey is currently on a sell-out tour of his second solo stand-up show, Offermation, which received a Best Show nomination from the hugely prestigious Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards at last year’s Edinburgh Festival.
With appearances on Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), 8/10 Cats (Channel 4), Morgan Spurlock’s New Britannia (Sky Atlantic), The Mad Bad Ad Show (Channel 4), Show and Tell (E4), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3), Argumental (Dave), Comedy Rocks (ITV1) and Richard Bacon’s Beer and Pizza Club (ITV4), he has experienced a meteoric rise to the top of the comedy circuit since being a finalist in the Chortle Student Comedy Awards and the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year competition in just 2009.
In between tour dates, Chris has been filming Hebburn, a new sitcom for BBC2 in which he plays the lead.
