I'm sending out huge congratulations to our regular Comic Boom comedy club at Komedia Brighton MC Laura Lexx on her Chortle Awards 2019 nomination for best compere (again!). I love it when our Comic Boom rising stars really start to rise. When Laura first played Comic Boom in short spots she performed barefoot, and her promo pic was the one above with a teapot on her head! It's still one of my all time favourite comic's promo pics.
I'm also sending out huge congratulations to our January Comic Boom headline act Garrett Millerick. If you've been coming along to Comic Boom comedy club Garrett is one of the many comics you've watched work his way up the ranks from short spots all the way up to the headline spot. And now he's been nominated for "Breakthrough act" in the Chortle Awards. You can see the very first promo pic he sent me below.
It's no surprise that my former Comic Boom MC and Comedy Workshops graduate Romesh Ranganathan has been nominated for "Best TV comedian" in the Chortle Awards. He seems to be all over the TV and continuously at the helm of great new comedy shows. It's an award he richly deserves to win. I love the early promo pic of Romesh below because it brings back so many good memories of working with him at Comic Boom comedy club at Komedia Brighton.
My fingers are so crossed for a win for my trio of top class talented comedians in the Chortle Awards 2019. Keep an eye out for them all over the next months. There are some very exciting new projects coming up...
