Dummy Run with Faizan Shah and Hannah Platt - Leicester

- Just the Tonic at The Exchange Bar, Leicester
Faizan Shah - "Nicely paced, deadpan delivery" Chortle
Hannah Platt - ‘Dark, damaged and hilarious’, Josie Long

Manchester’s fastest rising young stars share an hour to “Dummy Run” some exciting new material. 

Hannah Platt is an accomplished writer and performer who just recently came second in the Funny Women Final, winner of best breakthrough act and finalist of the BBC New Comedy Awards.  Hannah has a frank, acerbic and brutally honest approach to stand up, never shying away from sensitive topics.

Faizan Shah has found great success in his very short career, he won the Gong Show, Stockton Arc gong, finalist in the Beat the Frog World Series and Liverpool Breakthrough Act of the Year and a semi finalist for the BBC New Comedy Award.  He was also shortlisted for Best Breakthrough Act 2023.  Faizan moved to the UK as a child and his well crafted jokes make light of growing up in an immigrant household in his trademark deadpan manner.

Just the Tonic are proud to present shows at The Leicester Comedy Festival 2024 in an outstanding small venue, The Exchange Bar, nestled in the heart of the Cultural Quarter in Leicester, the venue stands as a testament to the architectural beauty and impeccable design.

“Consistently boasting the most interesting line ups in the country”
