InternationalComedians.com has announced both its next comedy showcase, taking place on Saturday 19 October 2019, and the Luxembourg International Comedy Festival, being held from 21-23 November 2019 in the Grand Duchy.
The October edition of the monthly English-language Luxembourg Comedy Showcase, organised by Joe Eagan and InternationalComedians.com, will see headline acts Kelsey de Almeida (UK/Sweden) and David Alfie Ward (UK) take the stage at the Marionnette (15 rue de Strasbourg, Luxembourg-Gare). Joining them on this occasion will be feature guest Alexandria Macleod (Zimbabwe/France/UK).
Kelsey de Almeida is a 23-year-old comedian from the UK, who has already supported Stephen K Amos on four UK Tours, Abandoman on their 2017 UK Tour and will support Russell Kane on his late 2019 UK Tour. He was also selected to represent the UK in Australia in this year's "Best of the Edinburgh Fest" showcase shows at the Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe Festivals. The show received a 4.5 star review.
David Alfie Ward was born and raised in the East End of London. Once one of the biggest acts on the Asian comedy circuit, Ward's sense of humour has taken him across the globe. He started his stand up career in a small bar in his hometown and has since gone on to play some of the biggest clubs in the UK, Mainland Europe, USA, Asia and Australia. He has featured on TalkSPORT, Capital FM, ITV, the Metro, Fubar FM and the Ladbible in the UK.
Alexandria Macleod was born in Zimbabwe, raised in France and yet somehow exudes Britishness. A writer, comedian and improviser with Edinburgh Fringe sell-out troupe, Crime Scene Improvisation, she won "le Best de l'humour London 2018". Her bilingual, critically acclaimed show "La Franglaise" has taken her to the Apollo and Alhambra Theatres in Paris and the infamous Comedy Store in London.
