tom lucy, very best in stand up, civic hall

‘The Very Best In Stand Up’ returns to Nantwich Civic Hall on Friday April 6 with four top comedians set to entertain fans.

Markus Birdman, Tom Lucy and Sean Meo are three acts alongside compere Toby Hadoke.

The first act of the evening is Birdman, an experienced and versatile comedian who is one of stand-up’s most well-travelled funnymen, much in demand in the UK and all over the world.

Birdman returns after last playing in Nantwich in 2015 and his honest, charming and sometimes surreal comedy is always a big hit.

The next act is the hotly tipped up-and-comer Tom Lucy.

Making his debut in Nantwich, and still only 21 years old, Lucy is one of the youngest professional comedians in the world.

Having already established himself on the UK comedy circuit at clubs such as The Comedy Store, The Glee Club and Komedia, Lucy has had a remarkable impact on the scene since his first gig at the tender age of 16.

As well as performing all over the UK, Lucy has toured internationally in the Middle East, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany and a stint at the world famous Comedy Cellar in New York, USA.

He has won Best New Comedian at the 2017 Fringe and definitely falls into that category of “see him now, before it’s too late!”

Last up is Sean Meo, widely acknowledged as being one of the finest performers and writers on the UK comedy circuit.

Sean swapped professional snooker for stand up 30 years ago and has since become one of the most established names on the circuit and former winner of Time Out’s Best Comedian award.

Toby Hadoke, who used to be the event’s resident compere at the Limelight in Crewe, returns to compere at the Civic Hall.

With a stand-up career that spans over 15 years, Toby is one of the most respected MC’s on the UK circuit.

His quick wit and charming audience banter make him a disarming compere who can liven up a lacklustre crowd or tame a feisty one, without him ever losing his unique comedy styling as a self-deprecatory and amusingly vexed curmudgeon it’s impossible to dislike.

Quick witted and a verbal craftsman, he’s also politically informed and a great improviser.

The show takes place on Friday April 6 and tickets are on sale priced at £10 from the Civic Hall direct or from

Doors open at 7.15pm and the show starts at 8.15pm.
