  • The Cookie Comedy Club Presents: ISY SUTIE 22/09/16

    The Cookie Comedy Club presents ISY SUTIE @isysuttie www.isysuttie.com £14 / 14+ / 7:30pm -- ‘Gloriously upbeat.’ EVENING STANDARD ‘A real gem.’ THE GUARDIAN ‘A cross between Lena Dunham and Victoria Wood.’ SUNDAY TIMES THE ACTUAL ONE is Isy Suttie’s brilliantly funny new show about that moment in your late 20s when you suddenly realise that all your mates are growing up without you - featuring stories, songs and readings from the new book of the same name. The invisible deal that Isy had made – to prolong growing up for as long as possible – was all in her head. Suddenly everyone around her is into mortgages, farmers' markets and nappies, rather than skinny-dipping in the sea and sambuca sessions on rope-swings. When her dearest friend advises Isy that the next guy she meets will be not just The One, but The Actual One, Isy decides to delay the onset of adulthood for just a bit longer until a bet with her mum results in a mad scramble to find a boyfriend within a month. ISY SUTTIE is an award-winning comedian, writer, songwriter and actress. Her TV acting credits include Peep Show, Shameless and Skins. She regularly performs to live audiences and on radio, including her Sony Award-winning BBC Radio 4 series Isy Suttie's Love Letters, and has been nominated for a British Comedy Award three times. Isy has written for Red, Glamour, the Guardian and the Observer. Copies of Isy’s new book ‘The Actual One’ will also be available for purchase on the evening during a signing session at the venue.

    Tuesday 1st November PILE http://www.facebook.com/pileof http://www.twitter.com/pilemusic http://www.pilemusic.tumblr.com/ http://www.pile.bandcamp.com/ The band's name speaks volumes to most, and to the rest... it soon will. Earning the reputation of "your favourite band's favourite band," the quartet (Rick Maguire, Kris Kuss, Matt Connery, and Matt Becker) have been setting the DIY indie punk scene ablaze since 2009, developing a unanimously praised back catalogue in the process and a legion of diehard fans throughout the entire country and abroad. The band have toured heavily over the years, playing all ages venues and basements in the spirit of DIY culture with peers Speedy Ortiz, Big Ups, LVL UP, Two Inch Astronaut, Krill, etc. Pile started to work on You're Better Than This at Omaha's Another Recording Company with producer Ben Brodin. The result of those sessions is Pile at their absolute finest, a perfect mix of the band's ferocious and gentle sides, an undeniably explosive record that twists and convulses with unexpected turns at every corner. Pile's exceptional ability to warp through loud-soft-loud dynamics is on full display, forgoing predictable song structures and triumphantly crushing any false sense of security. You're Better Than This is comforting at one moment and brutal the next, ripping through influences that include post-punk, noise rock, folk song-writing, and a particularly colossal take on indie rock.
