PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

PizzaExpress Live is very proud to launch a new series of stand-up comedy shows in our Holborn venue. Performers are drawn from the very best UK club comedians - many of whom are award-winners. Each night will feature three great performers. Whether you've come to see someone in particular or are just curious to see a comedy show, every one of the comedians we are presenting is hugely experienced and has sold out shows in their own right.

Carl Donnelly: "This man is a rare creature – he is inherently funny, and his stand-up feels natural and free flowing...proper tears-in-the-eyes, laugh-out-loud funny"

Carl Donnelly

Carl Donnelly’s conversational, silly sense of humour has seen him win a host of awards (Chortle Best Club Comedian 2017; Chortle Best Newcomer 2007; Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007; among others) and become a regular at all of the finest comedy clubs in the UK and Ireland. Carl has been described as an "observational genius’"by The Guardian and his comedy as "A touching and hilarious account of embarrassment and the fragility of modern masculin ity" The Sunday Times.

Annie McGrath

Annie McGrath is a comedy writer and performer who has written and appeared on ITV2’s @elevenish, as well as Channel 4 online’s show Girls Go Trolling. Annie has featured on BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio 4 Extra and has been shortlisted for the Funny Women award. She is also a two-time finalist for the Tickled Pig stand-up competition and has performed at clubs and theatres  nationwide, as well as festivals including Latitude, Cornbury and Machynlleth Comedy Festival.

Will Hislop

One half of the critically acclaimed sketch double act Giants and winner of the 2017 Musical Comedy Awards. Listed by The Metro as one of their 'Top Three Sketch Shows' of the Fringe and picked by The Guardian as one of their 'Shows We Recommend', Giants are funny, inventive, sometimes dark, and always stupid. After two consecutive sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows, Will Hislop is truly one to watch!
