Off The Rails Special with Ben Pope
Join the Off the Rails crew for a wild night of alternative comedy in a very special one-off Off The Rails at The Kitchen Garden Café, Kings Heath.
HEADLINER - BEN POPE
Former president of the Cambridge Footlights, he has been doing stand-up for seven years. Ben has previously worked with the award-winning NewsRevue, and appeared on Comedy Central’s Achievement Unlocked and BBC New Comedy Award on Radio 4 Extra.
"Undeniably funny and a clear crowd favourite” - EDFEST MAG ****
“Fresh and original…he has an undoubted charm” - SCOTTISH FIELD ****
“Consistently funny and deceptively thoughtful” - THE SCOTSMAN
“A total delight…a ballsy and clear-eyed routine” - FEST
“Classy, stylish and accomplished…Pope has all the comedian’s tools and he knows how to use them” – CHORTLE
OPENING - FRANK FOUCAULT
Smart. That's the word to describe this act. Luke Smith - AKA Frank Foucault - presents a surreal and very funny character that's particularly hard to describe. Think David Lynch meets James Acaster, with doppelgängers, a story centring on James Corden and the best strip tease you've ever seen.
"Inspired lunacy" - WALESONLINE
"Baffling and daring" - BROADWAY BABY
"Someone to keep and eye on" - CHORTLE
"A tiny work of comic genius" - SCOTSMAN
With support from Abbie Hale.
Doors - 7:30pm for an 8:00pm start.
Tickets - £7 (Buy online at DesignMyNight or in person at the Kitchen Garden Cafe)
