Michael Fabbri * Mark Maier * Ria Lina
The Queen’s Theatre is excited to launch a brand new spicy season of Comedy and Curry in the Foyer on Thursday 24 August at 8.30pm with three fantastic stand-ups – Michael Fabbri, Mark Maier and Ria Lina. There will also be a range of delicious meat and vegetable curries to enjoy before the giggles start. By becoming a member of Comedy Club, audiences can see all three nights of stand-up this season for just £27!
With a dark and honest approach to some of life’s more touchy subjects Michael Fabbri turns controversial topics into light-hearted silliness, making for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act. Since entering the stand-up circuit in 2003, he has performed several solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe festival and at major comedy clubs throughout the UK and all over the world. He has worked as a support act for Micky Flanagan, Lucy Porter and Stephen K Amos and as a writer for Radio and TV. He recently had his own stand up series ‘Dyslexicon’ on BBC Radio 4.

‘It’s high time someone gave him a TV show of his own’ The Guardian on Mark Maier
For over a decade Ria Lina has been entertaining both UK and international audiences with her dry wit and occasional song. Her charm and intelligence allows her to get away with anything from the most audacious routines to subtle wordplay. She has been a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival since 2011 and her most recent Ria Lina: Dear Daughter (2016) won Best Comedy Show at the Greater Manchester Fringe.
