Good Ship Comedy presents Fern Brady
Fearless writing and lighting fast wit make Fern an exceptional comedian, one who has been building up a remarkable body of work over the past few years. Prior to entering comedy Fern was a Guardian award-nominated journalist and has also spoken about topical issues on Radio’s 4’s The Today Programme. She is similarly uncompromising in her material, slaughtering holy cows with little care for audience sensibilities or insufferable fools. Few acts have the scalpel-like way with an image or analogy as Fern, and it's little wonder that she's become a regular on BBC Radio 4's 'The Now Show', as well as appearing on '8 Out of 10 Cats', 'Live at The Comedy Store' and 'Russell Howard's Stand-up Central'.
"Appealingly acidic… a great comic sensibility with moments of sparkling verve." The Guardian
"Solid gold material on top of a beautifully brutal turn of phrase." Fest
"Bold, whip-smart and unabashedly honest” ★★★★ The Herald
Danny has been performing stand-up comedy for the best part of a decade, headlining regularly at top comedy clubs and festivals to worldwide audiences.
As the resident host and owner of The Comedy Crunch in Dublin one of Ireland’s most successful comedy clubs - his friendly, high energy and anecdotal style draws in an audience and brings on the big laughs with ease!
Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara Ó Briain – Danny was handpicked in 2016 to perform as part of the iconic “Best of The Edinburgh Fest” Show across Australia touring Perth World Fringe, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival and returned again in 2018. After a sell out month long run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe last year and a tour of South East Asia, Danny followed these with a national and international tour with over thirty dates in six countries with his hugely successful 'RaconTour'. He is a consummate storyteller and capable of charming any audience into submission with his gags.
"O’Brien is genuinely, uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing" ★★★★★ The Sunday Independent
Daniel Muggleton is an Australian stand-up comedian from Sydney, which is objectively a better city than Melbourne, just trust him.
He has sold out shows at festivals around Australia: Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Canberra Comedy Festival, Darwin Fringe & Sydney Fringe - as well as at The Edinburgh Fringe. His debut album ‘Let Me Finish’ was released in 2017 by Grammy Award-Winning US label Comedy Dynamics, making him the first Australian comedian they’ve ever produced…following in the footsteps of huge American stars such as Kevin Hart, Jim Gaffigan and Bill Burr.
"Very, very funny." Sydney Arts Guide
Another fresh, excellent new comic who is part of Soho Theatre's Young Comedy Company. Whilst still young and new to comedy Jake is already an accomplished and engaging storyteller.
AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST:
BEN VAN DER VELDE
Standing a statuesque five foot five inches high (not in heels) and weighing in at eleven stone (on a good day) Ben is the current light-middleweight contender for compering champion of North London.
"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle
"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.” Huffington Post
