A night of comedy is being held at The Black Cherry in Bournemouth in aid of Dorset’s Disability Charity, Diverse Abilities.
The event follows a successful first event in February. The Comedy Night is to be held on Friday 27th October, with Sunjai Arif as the MC for the evening. Sunjai quickly wins over audiences with his confidence and warm personality. He is an engaging comedy storyteller and covers tales about his family, speeding tickets and extremist rodents. Sunjai is joined by:
Joe Wells started his career writing about his experiences of OCD, and has since been tour support for the likes of Frankie Boyle, Alexei Sayle, and Stephen K Amos, as well as writing for ‘Have I Got News For You’ and series two of ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised’.
Spring Day is an American stand-up comedian, writer and actor. Spring’s uniquely acerbic and sassy style of comedy is always a crowd pleaser, or shocker… A fluent Japanese speaker and a mild cerebral palsy haver, Spring began her career headlining at the Tokyo Comedy Store whilst based in Japan. She has written, produced, directed and performed seven solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She has also written for and appeared in BBC Three sitcom Jerk.
Mariana Swain, events executive at Diverse Abilities, commented: “We are really excited to go back to The Black Cherry for our second comedy night. It will be a fantastic way to spend an evening in October, with entertainment from three hilarious comedians. We hope to be able to reach a new audience, who will be able to support our work with children and adults with physical and learning disabilities in Dorset.”
Rachel, one of the three owners of The Black Cherry, commented: “We are really keen to support the work of Diverse Abilities, as we strongly believe theatre & comedy are for everyone. It’s great to be able to do this in such a positive & upbeat way, introducing people to great up-and-coming professional comedians, in our wonderful creative space.”
