11 October, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm£8
Streatham Festival 2018 presents a night of hilarious stand up comedy with headliners CHRISTIAN REILLY, MARLON DAVIS, TOM WEBB & STEVE N ALLEN (MC)*
It’s cabaret seating at Hideaway, which means you’ll watch the show from your table and food and drink is served throughout the evening. Cocktails and comedy – what’s not to like?!
Headliner – Christian Reilly
Former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian’s career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain. Now a solo stand-up performer and playing all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. Christian’s comic songs, improvisations, sharp wit and youthful energy have delighted audiences wherever he performs. “The word ‘charisma’ is bandied around too often, but Christian does have it in spades” CHORTLE.CO.UK “If you’re a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you’re probably a Christian Reilly fan already” THE GUARDIAN “Bill Bailey watch out, there’s a new kid on the block!” ONE4REVIEW.COM

MC – Steve N Allen
Star of BBC 2’s hit new show ‘ The Mash Report’. Steve is an experienced comedian at home in any slot on the bill, with a warm and upbeat act that soon connects with any audience. His material ranges from an observational look at life to up to date topical comedy or shows solely based on the interaction with the crowd. As a stand-up Steve has performed all across the UK in clubs including The Comedy Store, Comedy Cafe and Up The Creek, as well as performing at comedy festivals in Edinburgh, Brighton and Leicester with versions of his solo topical comedy show that dissects the news and how we use it. Steve can also often be heard as a news commentator and satirist TV and radio, including LBC and BBC London and has hosted his own shows for the BBC. “Allen hits the mark, with an effusive mix of biting satire and gleeful mud-slinging that recalls Russell Howard by way of Ian Hislop. More than worth a look.” Three Weeks “What was evident here, is the performer is quality, his mockery, and the excellent use of accents combined with clever voice-over interaction; is a performer with masses of talent.” – Fringe Review “His improvisation was impressive, topical jokes quick and practised on his tongue to mix up with his banter with the audience. This is a tight, upbeat show that I would recommend going to see.” – Broadway Baby “Very funny… cutting wit” – Time Out
