Good Ship Comedy presents Olaf Falafel
- No reviews.
- The Colonel Fawcett
A unique mixture of one-liners and Scandinavian-tinged stories has earned Olaf the purely fictitious title of ‘Sweden’s eighth funniest comedian’. His recent exploits include coming second in the 2014 Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, beating the Comedy Store’s infamous Gong Show (twice just to show off!) being crowned the 2013 Golden Jester and also being named Last Minute Comedy Club’s New Act of 2013.
"Absurdity so well-crafted that silly doesn't do it justice." Evening Standard
“Quirkily eccentric… combining modern technology with old-fashioned idiocy.” The Scotsman
"Falafel has a talent for the tangential with the ruthlessness and timing of any talented stand-up.” Fest
“A mixture of audience interaction and jokes worthy of Milton Jones. His easy confidence and a sense of performance endeared him to the crowd.” Chortle

"A one-man screwball comedy in which silly and brainy sides bicker." New York Times
Direct from Ivory Coast, Trev Tokabi has been charming audiences on the UK circuit for the past few years with his tall tales. With a penchant for the embarrassingly uncomfortable, Trev uses a no holes barred approach to the most innocuous of situation. His quirky musings on every day life quickly turn into rambling monologues about je ne sais quoi.
"Clever and funny." Tony Law
"Easy-going and gregarious with a touch of self-deprecation that adds to her confidence rather than detracts from it... great company" Chortle
