Local Comedy Club Up For Regional Award

Local comedy club FAF Promotions are in line to receive a regional comedy award, and are appealing for your votes to help the club, established in 2013, to walk away as winners of “Best Small Club” at this year’s Midlands Comedy Awards.

FAF were narrowly beaten in last year’s awards but after another year of delivering belly-tickling laughs across the area, at venues like Mansfield Town FC and Ilrosso, the club have eyes for the winner’s trophy.

Club founder Stuart Coleman said “We started in June 2013 in the back of Briley Forest Golf Course in a little function room and there was 20 people there, currently I’m running about fourteen different venues and getting turn overs of around 100 per audience. It’s absolutely amazing we’re overwhelmed”

The club has some big name comedians on it’s books, including Dave Johns (I Daniel Blake), Archie Kelly (Kenny Snr, Phoenix Nights), Patrick Monahan (ITVs Show Me The Funny, Splash), Andrew Wilkinson (Mrs Browns Boys) and Gary Delaney (Mock The Week).

Stuart continued “The Nominations on their own are done by the industry, so it’s not until this stage where people can vote. The nominations are done by the industry, the promoters and comedians – so that’s a massive step to be nominated in the first place”

“It’s important (to laugh) because we’ve faced a downturn in circumstances, financially people don’t go out as much as they used too, so to get recognised for entertaining people in the area and to create a bit of attention for the area (in these times) as an entertainment stable is all I’m aiming for really”

Voting closes on November 20th and you can register your vote by clicking HERE (Best Small Comedy Club, is the 9th category on the list). The winners will be announced on Sunday the 27th of November 2016 at the Canal House venue in Nottingham. The Awards show will feature performances by many of the finest Midlands comedians currently performing on the national comedy circuit and entry is FREE to all (7pm start)
