There’s a true treat for comedy fans in Horsham when the Barnstormers’ Big Sundae comes to The Capitol.

The premier show in the Barnstormers’ calendar starts at 7.30pm on November 17.

There will be three headlining acts in the main theatre this year.

Compere Kevin Precious will introduce Mike Gunn, Rudi Lickwood and Bob Mills.

Mike Gunn’s history is as interesting and entertaining as his comedy. A misspent youth and a series of grim jobs cultivated his cynical outlook on life and a perverse desire led him to the world of stand-up.

He has a rare ability to walk close to the line of what audiences find acceptable and yet still remain likable and funny.

Early in his career Mike was supporting the likes of Jo Brand and Alan Davies. He now headlines at all the top comedy venues in the UK and is rapidly reaching cult status on the circuit.

As the top black comedian on the UK comedy circuit, Rudi Lickwood is far more than just a stand-up.

Rudi’s recent achievements include earning his status in the ‘Black 100+’ awards for the greatest Black British Achievers, picking up a BECA award for outstanding contribution to comedy, and taking up a high profile request for Rudi to host an exclusive Brit Awards after-show party.

Bob Mills burst on to the London Comedy scene in 1985, turning the faltering “alternative” establishment on it’s head with his unique, challenging brand of laddish irreverent stand-up.

Over the next ten years he established himself as one of the most successful live acts in the country and put together a string of acclaimed TV and radio credits.

His performances as host of ITV’s flagship daytime game show ‘Win Lose Or Draw’, treading the fine line between pensioners favourite, and students cult hero, and his weird and wonderful late night ‘In Bed With MeDinner’, are still remembered fondly wherever intelligent TV fans meet.

Tickets: £12.50 in advance, £15 on the door.
