TANYALEE DAVIS AT LOL COMEDY CLUB
International comedian Tanyalee Davis joins the line up for the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club and The Grand Theatre, Blackpool.
Tanyalee Davis is an international superstar and she may only be 3ft 6” but she gets big laughs around the world. You may recognise her from her storming sets on ‘Live at The Apollo’ (BBC1) and The John Bishop Show (BBC1). She also starred in ‘I’m Spazticus’ (Channel 4), ‘Abnormally Funny People’ (Sky), ITV’s ‘SuperHuman: World’s Smallest People’ (ITV). But perhaps her most impressive appearance was in Austin Powers 3: Goldmember – how many comedians can say that? Her other film credits include an appearance in “Fo’ The Love of Money.” She’s been a guest several times on the “Maury” show and appeared on Fox’s “30 Seconds to Fame.”
In 1999, she placed second in the Seattle Comedy Competition, where she was the first woman in 10 years to make it into the finals.
Last year she added to her resume winning the 4th Annual Norman G. Brooks Stand-up Comedy Competition in Hollywood. She also had a successful month-long run in August 2003 as part of The U.S. Comedy Invasion at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Her bold, saucy style often surprises and delights audiences. Its little wonder she’s one of the most sought after acts in comedy both here and across the globe because she’s one of the planet’s top comedians and this is a rare chance to see her in town. All comedians claim to be unique, but here’s one that really is.

“She will touch you, amaze you, entertain you hugely” The Scotsman
Barry Dodds is a circuit favourite and lovable Geordie who’s cheeky grin hides no end of uproarious and unpredictable stories and gags. He charms audiences nationwide, with his uniquely tailored combination of disarming wit and wry, down-to-earth observational humour. As adorable as he is funny, this brilliant comic will captivate you and make you laugh in equally dollops.
He first took to the comedy stage at the tender age of 21 he soon had audiences eating out of the palm of his hand. Using his own contrasting combination of irrepressibly cheeky and gently mischievous material, he quickly found himself taking the national circuit by storm.
A finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more unusual.
In summary, a funny, funny man!

“Hugely enjoyable with a ton of great stories: One to watch” The Guardian
Keith Carter as Stacy Silcox
Failed singer/musician and doomed to a life of temping, Keith Carter is now a professional character comedian, actor and writer. His seventh comedy gig was as a finalist for the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2001, since then he has traveled throughout the world, supporting many top comics such as Ricky Gervais and Johnny Vegas and has won several awards including Liverpool Echo Comedian of the Year in 2003 and North West Breakthrough Comedian of the Year in 2005. Capital of Culture judge, Sir Jeremy Isaacs was quoted in the news as saying, ‘He helped Liverpool win the bid,’ after seeing Carter’s comic creation and Liverpool cult hero, ‘Nige’ perform at the cultural bid show for the judges.naertainly not an act to ming ands certainly
A versatile character actor, Carter has had absolutely no training in the acting profession apart from sheer experience and has appeared in several TV, radio and film productions, from lowly extra in ‘Coronation Street’ in 2000 to his first lead role in the BBC 2 drama, ‘Domestic’ in 2002. Carter is a regular performer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, receiving praise from critics and audiences alike for his one man shows and plays.
After a critically successful one man show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival, Carter has been asked to write a TV series around Nige for BBC 3, a guide to Liverpool’s capital of Culture for BBC 4 and a Radio 4 series based on life at Ford’s car plant as experienced by his father.
The two highlights of his showbiz career are having his one and only single played by John Peel and accidentally knocking George Martin into an ice sculpture whilst drunk.
Carter is proficient on guitar, harmonica and piano and can’t believe he is getting away with not having a proper job. He is currently waiting for someone to tap him on the shoulder to tell him it’s all over. In late 2011, Keith finished filming a TV pilot, which chronicles the daily events and encounters of his character Nige, the aptly entitled “The State Of Nige”
