Comedy at the Alverbank is back on Wednesday the 4th of March with Carl Donnelly headlining – as seen on Russell Howard’s Good News.

Carl started performing stand-up in 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting young comedians. His conversational, silly sense of humour has seen him win a host of awards (Chortle Best Club Comedian 2017; Chortle Best Newcomer 2007; Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007; among others) and become a regular at all of the finest comedy clubs in the UK and Ireland.

Carl has also appeared on various TV shows including Mock The Week, Dave’s One Night Stand, Stand Up for the Week, Russell Howard’s Good News and Stand Up Central, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, Follow The Football, Football Tonight and Comedy Store. In late 2018, Carl and fellow comedian Julian Deane started the podcast Two Vegan Idiots.
