8.30PM THURSDAY 8 MAY 2014 @ 606 CLUB

90 LOTS ROAD, LONDON, SW10 0QD

The relationship between comedy and jazz goes back a long way. The 606 Club’s unique speakeasy atmosphere is a perfect foil for this storied history, dating to the 1950’s when comics of the era including Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl, Steve Allen & Bill Cosby were huge jazz supporters and kindred spirits. The shared language of improvisation, the ability to be in the moment and take artistic risks through that spontaneity – is common to both mediums, and drew jazz musicians and comedians together, forming mutual admiration. Later, in the variety talk show TV format (as epitomized by the Tonight Show, hosted by Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson) the bandleader became a part of the show, interacting with the host and accenting the onstage antics with a well-placed drum roll or saucy quip. It is this chemistry that is at the heart of the 606 Club comedy and jazz concept.

vikki

Vikki Stone

Vikki Stone, who trained at the Royal Academy of Music, builds upon this alchemy with a thoroughly modern twist. Her debut Edinburgh Show, “Big Neon Letters”, played to sell-out audiences both in Edinburgh and London’s Soho Theatre, and received critical acclaim including The Observer’s Comedy Top 5 Edinburgh Shows 2011. Stone’s follow up, “Hot Mess”, sold out its entire run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2012, adding four extra shows due to phenomenal public demand. Her TV appearances include ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ ‘That Sunday Night Show’ and ‘This Morning’ (ITV1). ‘Richard Hammond’s Secret Service’ (BBC1). ‘Most Annoying People’ and ‘Britain in Bed’ (BBC3). ‘The Hilary Devey Story’ (BBC2). ‘Flash Prank ‘(MTV), ‘The Hour’ (STV), ‘Greatest Ever 3D Moments’ (Channel 4)

Tom Cawley

Tom Cawley

Tom Cawley is a former “Young Jazz Musician of the Year” who has appeared on the “Culture Show”, made numerous live BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and has been featured on the covers of both Jazz UK and Jazzwise. These impeccable jazz credentials are matched by his onstage charm, which will be put to good use in this context.

 Both Tom and Vikki will perform their own sets before sharing the stage for the remainder of the show, where the spirit of collaboration and improvisation will roam free.

Imran Yusuf: Renowned for his stinging, lyrical street-slang verbiage and super-high energy performance. Fast and furious yet charmingly endearing, his is a unique voice in the comedy world. His TV debut was also made shortly after the festival appearing on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Road Show (BBC1) and the Edinburgh Comedy Gala (BBC3) broadcast in September 2010.Currently working on a theatre tour and various TV and radio projects, expect to see and hear a lot more from Imran as he continues to cut at the very edge of British comedy. “Imran Yusuf’s show heralds the birth of a new comedy star” Time Out “An hour of cheek and charm”The Independent

Image

Steve Hall has provided the support for Russell Howard on his sell-out national tours and has included writing on Russell Howard’s Good News series 6, 7 and 8 as well as a second series of writing for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show.
