A comic trio will send punters into fits of laughter when they join forces for a night of raucous humour at the Broadway Theatre.
Black Entertainment Comedy Awards double winner Special P Francis will be joined on stage by cheeky hidden camera comedienne Jocelyn Jee and Def Comedy Jam star Tony Woods all the way from the US.
The three TV comics will crack jokes at the theatre in the Broadway, Barking, for an evening named Special P’s Comedy World on July 15.
Special P Francis scooped BECA awards twice, for best newcomer and most original material, and has performed around the world including the Edinburgh fringe.
Known for his observational humour and captivating facial expressions, the funnyman charms the ladies with wit and gives men side-ripping lines to take home, hence the name Naughty but Nice.
Special P said: “What an exciting journey, I got put through my paces on that show. I was promoter-turned-organiser and also comedian.”
Jocelyn Jee Esien, 33, burst onto the scene with her BBC hidden camera show 3 Non Blondes and made history by becoming the first British comedienne to front her own sketch show, Little Miss Jocelyn, in 2006.
Globe-trotting US comic Tony Woods will complete the trio with his cool demeanour seasoned with a sharp delivery.
He has had high-profile TV appearances on HBO series Def Comedy Jam and P. Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy.
Jocelyn said: “Special P is like a West Indian Graham Norton. Mums love him. I think I met Tony Woods, probably in Amsterdam at the comedy café. I feel like I’ve met him. But perhaps I met another Tony with the surname Woods.”
Tickets cost £12.50 and £15. To book call the box office on 020 8507 5607 or visit thebroadwaybarking.com
