Matt Price to Preview Edinburgh Festival Comedy Material at The Nog

Over the past few years, the comedy club has taken many different formats.  Initially starting with an opening act, a few open spots and then a closing act – all held together by the UHU of any good comedy night, the compere.

Unfortunately this was difficult to sustain financially, so last year we changed the format so that we have a well-established compere and several open spots – this helps us continue running the comedy club and also introduces us to many brilliant up and coming comics.

But as with everything, you need to keep changing the format to keep people interested...which leads me to our next comedy night on Thursday 2nd July.

Matt Price is one of the many comics we have met on the circuit and we are delighted that he has picked our comedy night as the one to preview his Edinburgh Festival material at.  As crowds go, apparently Wincanton is a pretty good gig!  Matt will be bringing with him fellow comics, Martha McBrier and Gary Coleman.

July's Comedy Club line-up at The Nog

Matt Price - "The Boy With Cake On His Face"

In 2005, critically acclaimed storyteller Matt received something through the post that he didn't ask for. That something is illegal.

This is a funny, true story of trying to do the right thing, but failing and wondering how you ended up there in the first place...

Think Cornish Breaking Bad meets Only Fools and Horses. It also explains why he doesn't like cake.

Martha McBrier - "Pigeon Puncher"

Have you ever wondered if there is a down side to being kind? Or what if someone doesn't want to be helped, but it's your calling in life to help them? Glaswegian Comedian Martha is blessed (and sometimes cursed) with a desire to be helpful.

She knows about human nature. Or at least she ought to. She's worked in domestic violence, psychiatric prisons, trained as a hypnotherapist and once punched a pigeon in order to keep a promise.

Gary Colman - "Tickling Mice"

An average bloke, morally ambiguous, scarred by a cruel and patriarchal world, who faces the problem of toughening up his young sons to the harsh realities of life.

The dilemma starts when his wife expects him to kill a tiny mouse found living in the kitchen. However he must also deal with the revelation that one, or possibly both, of his young lads may be gay.

Tickets are now on sale at the bar at The Nog Inn for £5, or if there are any left, on the door on the night!

Keep smiling!
