THE GRINNING IDIOT COMEDY CLUB

"A day without laughter is a day wasted" - Charlie Chaplin
Michael Fabbri
With a dark and honest approach to some of life’s more touchy subjects Fabbri manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh, controversial topics to light-hearted silliness to make for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act. 
Michael Fabbri quickly stamped his mark on the UK circuit appearing in the 2003 final of Channel 4’s 'So You Think You’re Funny?' and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the most promising up and coming comedians on the circuit; A reputation that he is living up to, regularly performing for the best clubs in the country.
