Alexander’s in Chester welcomes funny girl Carly Smallman to Comedy Live! for its Halloween show on Saturday, October 31.

Carly Smallman sings funny songs. She was born in 1985 but didn’t begin performing stand-up comedy until 2009.

Her unique blend of outrageous impropriety and adorable sincerity has established her as a firm favourite on the comedy circuit.

She has played at some fabulous venues from major weekend comedy clubs to arts centres to the Hammersmith Apollo to her living room!

She has appeared as a panellist on Viral Tap (ITV), doing stand-up on The Rob Brydon Show (BBC2), was a regular cast member for hidden camera show Secret Interview (Channel 5), moaned about irritating individuals on The Mosy Annoying People 2011 (BBC3), and criticised people’s life choices on The Top 50 Plastic Surgery Shockers (E4).

She has also written and performed sketches for BBC Comedy Online and has been heard on What’s So Funny (BBC Radio 4 Extra) with Rufus Hound.

Competition terrifies Carly but she was a Musical Comedy Awards finalist (2011), a Laughing Horse semi-finalist (2010) and finalist and first runner-up in the Bedford New Comedian of the Year (2010).

In 2009 and 2010 she was an Amused Moose Hot Starlet and in 2009 she was also shortlisted for the final of the Musical Comedy Awards.

Carly has also enjoyed success as an improviser and was one of the original cast members of fringe smash Scenes From Communal Living.

She is currently writing follow up Edinburgh show to 2013′s debut The Appalling Carly Smallman. It is called Made in Penge and promises to be an hour of jokes, songs, body confidence and empowerment!

Tickets are £12/10 or £27.95 with a dinner and ticket, available from or by calling 01244 340005.
