e think that we have the best line- up so far for the 6th Dartmouth Comedy Festival! So many great acts in fact, that to fit them all in we’re mak- ing it a day longer than usual. Starting on Tuesday 6th March this year we have Mark Steel as our opening act. His show ‘In Town’ is based on his award-winning BBC Radio 4 series and is a celebration of the quirks of small town life – so very apt for Dartmouth!

Wednes- day 7th March is reserved for our ever popular Mystery Guest


Comedy Film Night, in the


Mark Steel


capable hands of festival patron,


Peter Richardson. Previous years’ mystery guests have included Eddie Izzard, Harry Enfield, and Keith Allen. Mum’s the word on the mystery guest until the night, but rest assured that Peter will once again be plundering the contents of his impressive contacts list in an attempt to bring one of the king’s of comedy to Dartmouth.


By popular demand the wonderful Matt Harvey is returning to Café Alf Resco on Thursday 8th March where you can enjoy a rustic supper before listening to the musings of this nationally acclaimed Totnes based poet. Jenny Eclair’s Old Dog, New Trick tour will be calling in at the Flavel on Thurs- day. Jenny is now fifty years old which in dog years would qualify for The Guinness Book of records, having recently


been de-wormed and with her teeth newly bleached, she’ll be prancing around the regions, basically doing her comedy tricks for a ‘nice biscuit and maybe a glass of Chardonnay’.


The Royal Castle Hotel are hosting a Comedy and Curry night on Friday 9th March with multi-award winning Scotsman Phil Kay who describes himself as being in his natural environment up close in a room with a crowd. A show for those who like their comedy freestyle, unpredictable and effervescent! At the Flavel on Friday, we have the return of the wonderful Slightly Fat Features with their show for all ages ‘Com- edy by the Sea’. Their unique mix of circus tricksters, original live music, magical mo- ments and general spontaneous madness left the audience shouting for more last time they appeared at the Flavel.


Phil Kay We have managed to squeeze in 2 per-


formances of Gimmeyourleftshoe on Satur- day 10th March. All kids give up their left shoe, then have to come up with a funny skit to win it back using all the props lying around. Everyone please bring an odd item from home you plan to leave behind. Complete silliness for kids (and adults!)
