Edgy topics and gag smithery

Carey Marx is coming to Travestees Comedy Club on Wednesday, with three other talented comics.

Multi-award winning Carey Marx has been an international circuit favourite for years, mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischievous and gleeful delivery.

His willful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.

This mix of edgy topics and playful gag smithery can be seen all around the world with Marx regularly playing all the top clubs and annually compering Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury Festivals.

One of the most original and exciting acts in comedy, Trevor Lock is noted for his ability to improvise whole routines on stage.

Trevor Lock's unique brand of intelligent stand up, mixing cleverly crafted wordplay with stream of consciousness extemporisation has gained him a worldwide cult following.

In the late 1990s Trevor appeared regularly on Lee and Herring's This Morning with Richard Not Judy and later on Brain Candy and Time Gentlemen Please, and has been a regular on Russell Brand's various radio shows where he earned the nickname Cocky Locky.

His raucous weekly comedy showcase Trevor Lock's Philosophy Society ran for 18 months to sell out audiences in Leicester Square from 2007 to 2008.

Making a return to the Travestees stage by popular demand is Joey Page.

Joey is eccentric, with his magical swirling surreal comedy, Joey takes his audience through the tangled joy of his charmingly childlike logic, creating a world of uniquely offbeat characters and tall tales of fancy.

With a flamboyant rockstar dress sense, Page is as unique and mischievous off stage as he is on stage.

Back at Travestees for his hundredth time as compere is Mark Olver.

Mark is a stand-up comedian and television warm-up artist who spends most of his life performing in comedy clubs and TV studios all over the UK for shows including Deal or No Deal, Vicar of Dibley, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Al Murray's Happy Hour and Two Pints of Lager to name but a few.

Travestees Comedy Club returns to Tor Leisure Centre, in Glastonbury, on Wednesday.

Doors open at 7.30pm with the comedy starting at 8pm.

Tickets are £9, and for more info or to reserve tickets visit www.travestees.com.

Due to the unpredictable nature of some comics organisers recommend the show for those aged 16 and over.
