WILL FRANKEN - 21st March
American enigma WILL FRANKEN returns to Laughing Coyote.
WILL FRANKEN has relocated to the UK from San Francisco where he is admired by comedy royalty - counting Robin Williams among his fans.
An absurdist one-man sketch and character show, Will is a firm favourite with the Windsor crowd after previous visits to LC.
Selected Best Comedian by the SF Weekly; Best Alternative to Psychedelic Drugs by the San Francisco Bay Guardian; and one of the Top 25 People to Watch nationwide by tribe.net.
In late 2007, Franken was first runner-up for the Andy Kaufman Award competition in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“I cannot remember one moment of this show that wasn't funny. I am still laughing.” **** The Scotsman
"Every Will Franken show is like watching a cast of thousands, with a potpourri of voices and characters." San Francisco Chronicle
Along with Will, SEAN MCLOUGHLIN returns to the club.A talented comedian with tales of woe, poverty, life on the road and unexpected relationships – sounds like harder work than it is – he is a genuine talent.
“A painful genius...he's brilliant” **** Broadway Baby
“endearing and amusing” **** Scotsgay
Our MC for the night is JONATHAN ELSTON - At just 24 years of age, Jon is a fresh, punchy, gag-driven comic who combines sharp joke writing and quirky observations with a youthful likability that charms his audience and endears him to any room.He has had success at the Edinburgh Festival in 2011 as Compere of the Prestigious AAA Late Showcase and then in 2012 as Headliner of the Big Value showcase.
Finally local rising star JAKE LAMBERT completes the bill – a fresh-faced exponent of one-liners and quickfire gags that will keep the laughs coming.
