HELSINKI’s BIGGEST ENGLISH COMEDY SHOW HAS A SPECIAL DAY, WEDNESDAY THE 14TH!

This month we are very proud to present one of the best touring comedians, Sarah Kendall from Australia
Featuring live Stand Up comedy by
SARAH KENDALL (AUS)
DAVE THOMPSON (UK)
Host: Louis Zezeran (AUS)
Sarah Kendall (AUS)
In 2004, Kendall became the first comedienne to be nominated for the Perrier Award in almost a decade. She played a major role in shattering the glass ceiling for women comics and this year did her first Edinburgh Fringe Festival outing for five years.
Inspired by the birth of her daughter, Kendall questions the kind of society in which we’re raising girls: a society where educated middle-class women are pole dancing for fitness, fairytales teaches young girls to value beauty above brains, and if you watched too much MTV, you’d think lesbians sole purpose is to dance with each other on yachts and get it on whilst rap artists pour champagne on their heads.
Political but not polemical, hilarious but not haranguing, Sarah Kendall is intelligent, considered comedy delivered by one of the most acclaimed stand-ups in the industry.

Dave Thompson (UK)
Dave works continuously as a stand-up comedian, and has performed in America, The Falklands, Dubai, Oman, Abu Dhabi, and cruise ships in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Never happier than when he’s being paid to explore new places, Dave has also worked in Ireland, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Sweden, Poland, Luxembourg, Austria, and Monte Carlo. Known for his one-liners and absurd persona, Dave has written material for many other comics, including Harry Hill, Ronnie Corbett, Bruce Forsyth, Jim Tavare, Ben Elton, and Stewart Lee.
Dave wore a Jim Henson lion costume in two films made in Hollywood for American TV. He was in eight episodes of Al Murray’s sitcom ‘Time Gentlemen Please’, and one episode of Ben Elton’s sitcom ‘Blessed’. Despite appearing in many other TV shows such as ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’, and featuring in eleven TV commercials, Dave is best known as the person inside the Tinky Winky costume in ‘Teletubbies’, which is still shown all over the world.
Dave used to play this guy, seriously!
Louis Zezeran (AUS)
You know him! Your host each month and the guy who comes around and brings you the programmes and speaks in an overly polite way (well overly polite for an Australian)'
