AWARD-winning city comedian Joey Brannigan headlines Laughter Asylum at Taylor Johns House.

The 28-year-old will be performing his latest show On Reflection at the venue in the Canal Basin on Monday, May 14. Doors open at 7.3pm for an 8pm start.

It is his first show back in Coventry since his triumphant performance in Aid of Air Ambulance at The Stables Theatre in Milton Keynes in December last year.

And joining him on the bill will be Tom Howell, Rob Jackson, Colin Harris, Ukes Not Dead, Mark Holmes and Mixtape Saints.

Joey, who was born in Coventry, is known for his sharp, sometimes coarse, take on life, delivering his comical insights with poetic flair and loveable vulnerability.

After quickly establishing himself on the comedy circuit in 2009 he went on to headline various fund-raising events, and has made successful appearances at both the Leicester and Birmingham Comedy Festivals in 2011.

Recently he opened for Simon Evans at the Stables in Milton Keynes and was described by the star of Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Dave's One Night Stand and Mock The Week as 'one to watch'.

Joey founded Coventry's Laughter Asylum, and in 2011 was a Gigglebox Comedy Awards finalist, won Tapit Entertainment Show of the Year award for But Seriously and earned Darkside Cafe's Best Joke award at Leicester Comedy Festival.

He has also recently been confirmed as a headline act for Comedy Stage at Bristol VegFest Festival on Saturday, May 26.

Tickets for his hometown show cost £3 advance from or £4 on the door. Joey is on Facebook, twitter and has his own website
