Fever presents a special showcase of up’n’coming talent from the worlds of music and comedy.
Taking over the legendary Prince of Wales in Brixton comes a seven-strong smorgasbord of promising new acts, perfect for culture vultures who’d like to boast they’ve really heard of these guys first. It’s all part of Fever’s platform to support the most exciting new artists in town. (And if you think you’ve got what it takes, apply here!)
On Thursday, February 28, this exciting event will see three musical performers join four comedians for a chilled-out evening of emerging talent. Alongside some serious entertainment, you’ll also get a free drink (wine, beer, or a soft drink) – tickets are on sale now, and here’s who you’ll be seeing.
Part English, part Australian, all talent. HUX blend strong rhythms, dynamic harmonies, and catchy melodies to create toe-tapping tunes, and are working towards the release of an EP later this year. They’re also blessed with some bloody fabulous hair, which doesn’t hurt their appeal.
? Mali Mae
No stranger to a Fever music night, Mali Mae has come straight outta Northamptonshire with a point to prove. Incisive songs about growing up in the modern world are her hallmark, and at 18 years old, she’s already putting the rest of us to shame.
? Josh McGovern
Inspired by the likes of Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Young, Josh McGovern has already made waves on BBC Introducing. With stunning new singles ‘The Devil Below Me’ and ‘Love Left Lost’ gaining critical acclaim, this songwriter is primed for the big time, so catch him now.
? Miztli Rose Neville
Your talented host for the evening is Miztli Rose Neville; an actor, writer and comedian from Brighton, who trained at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. One half of the LADYLIKES sketch duo, she’s now writing her very first solo show, Stranger to Myself, which you’ll be able to catch at this year’s VAULT Festival.
? Preet Singh
A bouncer-turned-comedian with a natural stage presence, Preet Singh offers witty insights about growing up as a second-generation immigrant. Expect subjects as disparate as racism, existential dread, and celebrity worship during his set.
? Katerina Robinson
Modern dating is a right lark, isn’t it? It certainly is when Katerina Robinson tells it, as her “unapologetic, saucy, and positively sexual” standup will have you crying with laughter. Her work with Funny Women and Glass Half Full Theatre have made her a natural performer, and now is your chance to catch her.
? Hywel Roberts
You really couldn’t make Hywel Roberts‘ career up: he developed cancer just before performing his first comedy set, a charity gig in support of Cancer Research. Undeterred, and thankfully in remission, he now brings his hilarious confessional show to Brixton, and you’re going to love it.
