A RHYL comedy festival has landed netted two of a handful of performances this year by 1 90s improv master.

In a major coup for the Brhylliant Comedy Festival at the Little Theatre from Thursday, July 4, Whose Line is it Anyway star Tony Slattery will delight audiences with two unmissable performances.

The comic will take to the stage alongside comedy historian Robert Ross for Slattery Will Get You Nowhere on Thursday 4 at 7.30pm, followed by Unrehearsable at 3pm on Friday 5.

Currently, Slattery is only playing a handful of dates across the UK, including six gigs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.

In Slattery Will get You Nowhere, the comic will give a full and frank discussion of his career, his comedy, his demons and his utterly libellous stories about celebrities.

Currently a monthly residency show at 81 Renshaw Street, Liverpool, Unrehearsable offers more insight into Slattery’s life along with plenty of side splitting improvisational comedy alongside Ross once again and close friend Erica Lear.

Ross will also perform again at the festival, which welcomes more than 20 comedians to Rhyl, where he will sum up the bawdy and raucous British sense of humour through the Carry On series comedy institution in Oh, What a Carry On!

Also performing on Thursday 4 are Slattery's friend Allan Lear, Tom Little, Paul Campbell and Rourke Stellin, Tom Short and Rachel Creeger, as well as Archie and Roy.

Taking the stage on Friday are Rob Thomas, Brain Gorman, the Superhero Improv Show, Roland Ghent, Mr Badger, Ferris Ward Jr and Darcie Silver, as well as Kevin Berry and Gemma Roberts.

With a whole host of award winning acts, improv workshops for budding comedians and the monthly instalment of Rhyl Comedy Club - this stacked event has everything and more to delight comedy fans of all stripes.

All tickets for each show are priced at £5. For more information on the event's dizzying programme and to book visit brhylliant.com.
