Northern Talent Downstairs at the Drayton
Ray Peacock comes to Ealing this Friday
Hilarious northern comic Ray Peacock headlines Downstairs at the Drayton tonight (Friday March 13), ably supported by the superb John Gordillo.
Peacock is a prolific writer and comic performer who first came to prominence as part of the highly successful Big And Daft comedy trio, who enjoyed their own BBC London radio series, three consecutive years of sell-out Edinburgh Festival shows and their own series for the BBC’s PlayUK, Terrorville.
Ian’s character creation, the brash Yorkshireman Peacock, first made his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2002 and has become a regular and familiar face on the live circuit. Ian’s other TV credits include Skin Deep (Channel 4), Harry Hill’s TV Burp (ITV1), Les Dawson’s Finest Hour (Channel 4) and The 11 o’clock show (Channel 4).
