A Jewish Sexagenarian and a Liverpudlian Plumber walk into a bar ...

2 Shows 1 Gig.

Henry Churniavsky (2019 Semi-Finalist in Mot so New Comedian of the Year, London)is a grumpy, sexagenarian. Can it get worse…yes he’s Jewish. Henry talks about getting through the mid-life crisis, but not without the scars. We won’t mention the affair…who catered (Jewish Joke) or the selling of the family car for the 2 seater sports car (classic mid-life crisis)

Henry discusses marriage and how he met his wife. Being Jewrotic (Jewish Neurotic), Hypochondria (another Jewish disease) and a number of surgical procedures he had to go through to be at the Fringe. He will also discuss his charity work, which he is very proud of, as he feels with old age (again discussed) he knows he may be relying on them in the near future.

He has been helped to cope with the onset of old age by his comedy partner (& other part of show) Dickie Dido

Dickie Dido isn’t just your average plumber. With 2 D’s in his GCSE’s and a C in hepatitis, this Liverpudlian Mario first shot to fame during a 2012 episode of BBC’s Watchdog. Shoddy workmanship and a penchant for aggravated assault soon led to several more appearances throughout the years, finally culminating in a brief appearance on the Jeremy Kyle show for cheating on his girlfriend with her parents. Dickie brings music and comedy together.

An Interview with Henry Churney and John Wilson

Henry Churniavsky and John Wilson, aka Dickie Dido – now that is a must-see comedy combo!

Hello lads, so first things first, where are you both from & where are you at, geographically speaking?
Henry: We are both from Liverpool. I was born in Kirby & live in Liverpool. John lives on the Wirral.

When did you first realise you were funny?
Henry: I’ve always loved comedy. My father introduced me to the Goon show & American Jewish Comedy. I wrote appx 6/8 years ago 2 comedy sitcoms. 1 about a Jewish family & 1 about a Liverpool Hairdresser. It was only when I found out I could do a stand up course & I could do it.

When did you first develop a passion for comedy?
John: Growing up with a comedian in the Family (Al Dean) always inspired me, and of course being a teenager in the 80’s I had plenty of great comedy to draw from, it fascinated me. It took me a while to find my comedy chops but always wanted to pursue this amazing art form.

August 1, 2019    Mumble Comedy


There was something infinitely charming about the hour of comedy supplied by Henry Churney & John Wilson last night at the brightly modern venue that is The Place. A completely unpretentious affair, these two gentlemen exist in another sphere from the comedians who work the circuits, & so their brand of comedy is different also. For that, this was a very refreshing, almost transcendent, start to this year’s Fringe.
