Info provided by the Event Organiser
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly obsevational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride.
'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks)
‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine)
'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle)
'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian).
Nathan Caton tour dates
Barry Ferns has been writing and performing comedy since he was 17 years old. He won the Glastonbury Festival Comedy competition and reached the semi final of So You Think You're funny.
He was described by Bristol's Venue Magazine as 'sickeningly talented' and by Matt Lucas as 'one of the best new acts I have ever seen'.
'Surreal genius' (Metro)
'So funny someone should call a paramedic' (The Guardian).
Barry Ferns tour dates
'Kate Lucas is a unique act who combines a warm, self-deprecating persona with a dark dry wit that that runs through her songs. She combines catchy, original melodies with sophisticated lyrics and a fresh delivery style to present her playfully bitter musings on life' (Careys)
'Stole the whole evening with her musical comedy... had some of the crowd at the back of the room crying with tears' (Fringe Report)
'Combines deft lyrics with a lovely sense of progression' (Chortle)
'Hugely talented musical funny girl' (Monkey Business Comedy).
Kate Lucas tour dates
The stand-up comedian, actor and improviser has been spreading joy and nonsense to all four corners of England, as well as the more choice bits of Wales and Scotland over the past few years. Crowned Comedy Cafe New Act of the Year in 2009, Ben hosted the prestigious Big Value Comedy Showcase at the Edinburgh festival in 2012.
'A sharp and crafty gagsmith with wittily obtuse takes on an impressively wide range of topics, bringing flair and confidence to them all' (http://www.chortle.co.uk)
'Highly promising... accomplished comic' (Time Out)
'Van der Velde brings a natural charm to proceedings from the outset, with some
wonderfully improvised riffs... showcasing his impressive spontaneity and
sharp tongue' (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine)
'Flaunted his razor-sharp wit to hilarious effect leaving the audience bent over double' (Three Weeks).
Ben Van Der Velde tour dates
