LAUGH OUT PROUD IS QUAY ARTS’ BRAND NEW LGBTQIA+ COMEDY NIGHT featuring the best in established and upcoming acts from the community on the UK comedy circuit.

This is night is all about giving acts and audiences alike a fun and friendly place to express themselves, kick back, have a laugh and good time in an inclusive and welcoming comedy clubs environment.

Whether it’s comedy, cabaret or anything in between – Laugh Out Proud is the queer night out you’re looking for.

Laugh Out Proud at Quay Arts will feature the comedy delights of Mark Cram, Adam Greene, Aaron Twitchen and Sharon Wanjohi.

Do note that lines ups are subject to change

Mark Cram

Mark is quite the all-rounder; with both a killer set and strong MCing chops. For the last few years Mark has been plying his comedy trade across the UK. Constantly evolving, usually unpredictable; he is garnering positive reactions everywhere he goes.

Mark thrills crowds with his tales of dead-end jobs, his family and being the less than grateful winner of Bedford Comedian of the Year. 

“A Masterclass in comedy design” Newbury Weekly News 

Sharon Wanjohi

Sharon Wanjohi is an up and coming stand-up comedian with a varied act ranging from shock to absurd comedy. A Chortle Student Comedy Award Finalist and Funny Women Stage Award Finalist, with 2 years on the circuit, she talks (maybe too much) about children’s films and the cartoon dilfs that inspired a generation of sexual awakenings.

And she thinks Ratatouille is a commentary on race.

In 2022 Sharon featured in the Channel 4 online series Jokes Only A … Can Tell which is out later this year.

Aaron Twitchen

A stand up, actor, presenter and living stereotype.

Seriously talented. Hilarious, warm, energetic and capable of busting some awesome moves, Twitchen is a Quadruple Threat, the kind of new act that should have talent scouts excited and other comedians feeling nervous. The Skinny

Positive, fun, feel-good SGFringe

Twitchen wonderful, brilliant fun and you’ll definitely leave with a smile ThreeWeeks
