Light House’s comedy season continues with hilarious British comic magazine ‘Viz’ founder and comedian Simon Donald

Light House is proud to present another exciting comedy night featuring some of the best comedians, new faces, and seasoned-pros on the circuit as part of the season Wolverhampton on the Fringe. The 2011 comedy season is a chance to see sneak preview performances before they are taken to Edinburgh Fringe in August 2011. The third show of the season will feature comedians Carey Marx and Simon Donald performing on Thursday 23 June, doors open 8.15pm, for 8.30pm start. Simon Donald is most famously known for his popular comic magazine ‘Viz’ and his most famous creation from the magazine ‘Sid the sexist’.

Comedian Simon Donald may be familiar to some as the co-founder of the British comic magazine ‘Viz’ but has also had a successful career to date with his comedy rock band, Johnny Shiloe’s Movement Machine, TV presenting for BBC, and his autobiography ‘ Him off the Viz’. He recently moved to London from Newcastle to build on his character driven stand up career. Carey Marx has been a circuit favourite for years mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischievous and gleeful delivery, and is also a regular at Jongleurs, Komedia and The Comedy Store.

Ayesha Bal who is excited to attend this show said “I have many friends at university who enjoyed Viz magazine, they would often leave Viz lying around, I would have a read and found it absolutely hilarious. If Simon Donald can write such material then I am positive that his stand up shows will be extremely funny! I am especially excited to see what funny characters his imagination will conjure up this time….”

The 2011 comedy season at Light House will continue until July with performances from Pete Firman, Matt Kirshen, Mick Ferry, Chris McCausland, Shazia Mirza and Zoe Lyons. The next show will feature Carey Marx and Simon Donald, on Thursday 23 June, doors open 8.15pm for 8.30pm start. Tickets cost £12, over 18s only.
