After the sell-out show in June, the Phuket Punchline Comedy Club is back with a bang on Wednesday 13th October. Three top class comedians from very different walks of life are flying in to give the good people of Phuket another great night of laughter.
We have Pierre Hollins from England who once washed dishes in the House of Commons, Darren Sanders from Australia who was an extra in many Hollywood blockbusters, and Philberto from Portugal who once won a Portuguese Reality Show. Each one is a headliner in their own right which will ensure this will be another fantastic evening of comedy.
Tickets are available in advance from various outlets around Phuket and on the door on the night. Be sure to get yours early as our last show was a sell-out!
Pierre Hollins is a stand up comedian and writer.
The only other ‘proper jobs’ he’s ever had were washing dishes in the House of Commons, labouring on a gas pipe line in Qatar, in the Middle East, and teaching drama to the mentally ill.
He has been an audience favourite on the comedy circuit for many years, and has headlined at clubs throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
In the early days he worked as a support act to Lenny Henry and Rory Bremner; appeared in the West End with Rita Rudner; and toured with The Flying Pickets, and Willie Rushton & Barry Cryer.
His relaxed amiability is defined by a compelling conversational style and absurd guitar posturing. His ‘songs’ are jokes that rhyme, set to a guitar backbeat, never travelling down the easy route of song parodies. He covers topics from love and hate, to sex and politics with a totally original voice, delivering his material with charm and irrelevance.
Darren Sanders is a comedian and actor. He has appeared with Jack Nicholson in ‘Hoffa’, Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston in ‘The Bodyguard’, Mel Gibson in ‘Lethal Weapon 3’, Robert Redford, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson in ‘Indecent Proposal’, and Michael Douglas in ‘Falling Down’ to name a few and, if you look close enough, you may even see him. Yes, as a Hollywood extra he got to see some of the greatest film actors work in front of him. Quite a long way in front of him.
Darren started his stand up comedy career 1992 and he is now a regular in all of the top class comedy clubs around Australia and had a very successful show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival . In 2001 he opened The Laugh Garage Comedy Club in Sydney with fellow comedian Tony Bailey. He has toured the USA where he performed at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, The Improv in Irvine and featured in Chicago and Idaho comedy venues.
Darren teamed with fellow comic Garry Who producing TV shows The Dazz and Gazz Radio Show on TV and Talking Comics with Dazz and Gazz which won the 2009 Antenna Awards for best Comedy Program.
Philberto was the winner of a Portuguese reality TV show called ‘Live On The Floor For A Month’ where contestants were kept in extreme conditions bordering on cruelty. He won but there was a lot of controversy that things had been structured to go his way. He is egotistical, but also recklessly brave. When something scares Philberto, instead of running away, he charges head-on towards it. His biggest fear is being ridiculed, which is why he does stand-up comedy.
