Stand-up and musical comedy combine at First Thursday Comedy Club in Ramsbottom.

First Thursday Comedy Club in Ramsbottom is pleased to welcome Vikki Stone and Boothby Graffoe, two comedians who combine both stand up and musical talent, to our monthly Comedy Club at Ramsbottom Civic Hall on Thursday 2 May at 8pm.


Vikki Stone’s mix of stand up and musical comedy has made her one of the fastest rising stars of British comedy. A multi-talented comedian, actress, singer, musician and columnist, and winner of the Soho Theatre One Night Stand Up Award, Vikki regularly performs live across the country as well as on television.


Her Phillip Schofield Song from an appearance on ‘This Morning’ (ITV1) became an internet hit and was listed in The Huffington Post as The Top Ten Viral Videos in 2012.


Other TV appearances include ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’, ‘That Sunday Night Show’, ‘Richard Hammond’s Secret Service’ (BBC1). Most Annoying People’ and ‘Britain in Bed’ (BBC3). You may also recognise her from fronting major ad campaigns for Yakult, Fiat and Tena Lady.


Boothby Graffoe is best known for his surreal sense of humour and hilarious songs, as well as his work with Canadian Band Barenaked Ladies. A Time-Out Comedy Award winner and star of BBC Radio 4, his celebrity fans include Stewart Lee and Omid Djalili.


“Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians” – Stewart Lee
