Stand-up comedy and classic songs – a weekend double bill at Cooper Hall

COOPER Hall hosts something a bit different from their regular programming on 9th and 10th June with a weekend double bill of one-woman shows. For fans of stand-up comedy and musical theatre there is an opportunity to catch two engaging performers before they launch on the festival circuit – Amy Webber and Suzanne Noble.

Amy Webber – No Previous Experience on 9th June 8pm

Amy Webber is an award-winning comedian as heard on BBC Radio 4. Equipped with her mini electric piano and an opera degree that’s ‘never been useful’, she’s been entertaining crowds since being a kid in Japan.

A spokesperson for Cooper Hall said, “Recognised for being ‘versatile’ and ‘a clear hit’, she’s well on her way to her dream job; to be a household name in comedy. Even if that means singing her CV to everyone under the sun. Amy has written jingles for BBC Woman’s Hour and BBC Radio Manchester and is a composer for Oxford University Press.”

Amy won the Audience Choice Award at the Musical Comedy Awards (2020), was shortlisted for BBC New Comedy Awards (2021) and recently won the runner up prize at Beat The Frog World Series (2022).

Amy is heading to Cooper Hall in Frome for a pre-Edinburgh Festival show which runs throughout August.
