Screaming Blue Murder Comedy Club


Compere Andrew Bird introduces Mary Bourke and Paul F Taylor

Mary Bourke was born in Dublin during a cross-fire hurricane. She lives in leafy Buckinghamshire with her comedian husband and her large collection of Betty Page memorabilia. Before she became a comic, Mary was a burlesque dancer and choreographer in San Francisco. She has published numerous romantic novels under the pseudonymn Tara Sundrive .

Mary hates over blown bios.

“Intelligent comedy that’s also feriously funny … Ms Bourke combines a natural charisma with some very well crafted, clever material.” The Irish World

“Catch her act before she becomes a (complete and utter) cult.”  The Guardian

Paul F Taylor invites you to disappear down the rabbit hole of a fool's mind. Marvel at imaginative, logic-defying, left-field ideas spoken from an award-winning comedians mouth! 'An enticing, dizzying prospect, who whips through a welter of daft, Harry Hill-like ideas and diversions and chucks characters around with the agility of the Pajama Men' (Independent). 

'An impressive knack for both observational wit and quirky flights of fancy' (Evening Standard). 

'Eclectic mix of proper gags, gleeful flights of fancy and enjoyable awkwardness' (

(Line-up is subject to change.)
