Thurs 16 Nov, The Core Theatre comedy & variety
Comedy with Jo Enright, George Egg and Jeff Innocent - hosted by Maureen Younger
Formerly titled Jongleurs on the Road this show has been re-named as Comedy at The Core as a result of financial changes and is no longer a Jongleurs show. Web image will be updated shortly. These shows at the Core will feature a host and three live stand up comedians. From time to time acts are changed to suit TV filming etc - so please check website for up to date info.
Hosted by Maureen Younger.
Stand up comic, compere, actor, ad hoc radio talking head and writer for magazines such as the new online magazine for switched on women Standard Issue, Her Edit, as well as Psychologies Magazine‘s new blogging platform, Life Labs.
As a comic Maureen is a rare creature, a Brit who speaks languages, so she also gigs in Germany, Austria, Germany, France and Spain having lived abroad for many years.
I runs several comedy nights featuring all-female line ups in London and Birmingham. In addition, I organise shows for the Shout Festival, Coventry Pride and the Bradford Literary Festival.

Following two sell out years in a row at the Edinburgh Fringe with his first show ANARCHIST COOK, award winning comedian George Egg returned to Edinburgh in 2017 with a new show demonstrating more ingenious live cooking this time using DIY tools. As comfortable cooking now as doing his quirky stand up show George likes to mix up his act so a couple of suprises maybe likely!
also, Jo Enright
Jo Enright has worked with many of the UK’s leading comedy writers and directors. Appearing alongside Peter Kay in Phoenix Nights, with Steve Coogan in I’m Alan Partridge and playing the female lead Sue, in Life’s Too Short, directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Jo has recently received rave reviews for the part of Angela in three series of ITV’s The Job Lot.

Jo has just finished co-writing a commissioned script for Channel 4 and Babycow Productions.
“Jo Enright is one of the most naturally gifted comic talents I’ve ever seen. I’d put her in the same league as Julie Walters.” Peter Kay.

Comedian, actor and writere Jeff has a diverse career taking him from writer (notably with The Economist) to films, to TV via Edinburgh and Radio.
