Bexley Park Comedy – Friday 29th November 2019 8.00pm – Doors Open 6.30pm.

Boothby Graffoe

Boothby Graffoe is particularly known for his surreal sense of humour and work with Canadian band ‘Barenaked Ladies’.
Graffoe often incorporates guitar playing into his stage act, through his oddball and usually slightly twisted songs, including such titles as ‘Planet Dog’, ‘Woof’ and his album’s title track, ‘Wot Italian’ sometimes referred to as ‘Umbrella Head Boy’. He explained his reasons for increasingly irrelevant song title as essentially ways to avoid giving away the key phrases or punch lines in his songs. Graffoe has won several awards, including the 2002 Adelaide Fringe Award for Excellence, and the Time Out Comedy Award. He has been nominated for British comedy’s prestigious Perrier Award. On a tour of Scotland in February/March 2007, Graffoe announced his intention to retire from stand up comedy and concentrate on writing for Omid Djalili. He subsequently toured as a warm-up act for Djalili and Barenaked Ladies, but has recently announced a new tour and album Songs for Dogs’ Funerals. He is a regular performer at the annual Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
