Stand-up comedian, compère, host
From parts unknown Carl Denham started performing comedy a few years ago. Venturing anywhere that’ll have him; from the Leicester Comedy Festival to The Edinburgh Fringe. He lives with A Poster of Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit which can also be occasionally seen performing at comedy nights.
He runs Contains Mild Peril, a monthly alternative comedy showcase featuring pros, rising stars and every weird and wonderful thing in-between. Running the first Wednesday of every month in Ipswich, the event is pay what you want (if you book in advance). Some superb acts that have performed there are: Mark Silcox, Jo Fletcher-Cross, Rob Saunders, Tom Masters, Scott Casey, Chris Coltrane, Olly Watson, James Sarek, Janet Garner, Gráinne Maguire, Rosie Holt, Julia Watson, Si Deaves, Liam Sullivan, Athena Kugblenu, Ian Lane, Thom Barrett, Frankenstein’s Monster, The USOL Hyper Bowl, Haran X, Simone Belshaw, Charmian Hughes, Hannah Rosen, Siân Doughty, The Man With A Bag On His Head, Trev Tokabi, Lee Ashcroft, Lucy Roper, Faye Treacy, The Story Beast (John Henry Falle), Ali Warwood, Rob Saunders, Georgie Morrell, Ed Aczel, Pauline Eyre, David McIver, Sean Sellers, Rosie Wilby, Rosie Holt, Arielle Souma and Will Jones
Carl is (obviously) the host of Carl Denham’s Fabulous Fleapit of Franchises & Friends, a podcast loosely based around the idea of watching a film series with a friend. Each episode features a special guest/s (who is usually up to something interesting) and a franchise of their choosing. Special guests have included sci-fi author Jamie Sawyer, musician Josh Newton, comedian Esther Berntzen, musician/comedian/podcaster Rob Saunders and writer/actor/supervillain Holly Powis. You can find it most places you would a podcast.
