English Stand Up At Apollo Hesinki

WHAT: Apollo Stand Up Club Helsinki – English Night
WHEN: 17th November 2011
WHERE: Apollo, Helsinki
TICKETS: Lippu: 16€/13€ at Lippu
HEADLINER: Josh Howie (UK)
Dubbed the “young Woody Allen”, Josh was raised as a Buddhist, before living with Native Americans and finally settling down as a trainee Rabbi. At least that was the plan until he was kicked off the program for getting caught with a naked (non-Jewish) girl. Perhaps it was inevitable that he would go on to become a stand-up comic.
Performing regularly at all the major comedy clubs around the UK, last year Josh also took his distinctive brand of humour to Ireland, France, China and Thailand. He has also written and performed two solo shows for the Edinburgh Festival, before sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre. His last show “Gran Slam”, was based on his time living with his grandmother. Another distinctive and highly original show, Gran Slam also went down a storm with audiences and critics alike.
“The very undervalued Josh Howie delivers self-deprecating sharply written slices of neuroticism. There’s a distinct (and lovely) whiff of the Woody Allens”
“Headline comedy came from Josh Howie, bringing the evening to a close with howls of laughter and the occasional “oooh” that accompanies a joke that you’re just not sure is socially acceptable but makes you laugh regardless”
Ismo Leikola (FIN)
Ismo Leikola is about as good as they come. This jokes are precise, well written and hilarious. Ismo’s accent and style might be even funnier in English!
Eric Seufert (USA)
Host: Louis Zezeran (AUS)
