Comedy Beast returns to the 2019 festival

Comedy Beast is back at Plumstead Make Merry for the fourth successive year, and back with some new faces and great acts!
MC Peter Merriment (talkSPORT, SOCCER AM, BBC Radio 4) introduces the following funny people…
Lewis Schaffer
Lewis Schaffer was one of the top comics in the home of stand up comedy, New York City, as house MC at the Comedy Cellar and the Boston Comedy Clubs in Greenwich Village.
A short visit to London in 2000 went very wrong when love and marriage took him from his beloved New York and gave him children, divorce and heartache in the UK.
Now trapped in a multi-occupancy council flat in Nunhead, a suburb of Peckham, Lewis Schaffer is making the worst of a bad situation.
“Electrifying… a bizarre cross between performance art, a swingers’ part and a papal blessing. Five Stars.”
Claire Smith, The Scotsman
“Schaffer is disconcertingly terrific. He is compelling, unique and most of all unpredictable.”
Bruce Dessau, London Evening Standard
Romanian TV sitcom star of 20 yar and 700 episodes and now established in the UK as a musical comedian. Sold out Leicester Square Theatre in 2018 with ‘All Aboard’ Show.
Janet Garner
Janet was part of the Big Value Edinburgh show in 2018 as well as two plays. See her live before she’s on tele.
“If Eastenders was anything like this, we’d all watch it”  Mick Ferry, MC Comedy Store
