Fringe Benefits: PBH’s Free Fringe Fundraiser: Alistair Barrie, Stewart Lee, Robin Ince, Phill Jupitus, Sara Pascoe, Andrew Maxwell, Christian Reilly, Katherine Ryan, Addy Van Der Borgh, Peter Buckley Hill
Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk).
Alistair Barrie tour dates
An official Channel 4 survey of the 100 Greatest Stand-ups Ever placed Stewart Lee at number 41. His mother, whom he loves dearly, thinks Tom O'Connor the better comedian, having seen him do a joke about a sardine on a cruise ship ten years ago. And he isn't even in the top 100...
'The funniest, most cliche-free comedian on the circuit' (Ricky Gervais).
'Marvellously funny: mordant, thoughtful and crafted' (Observer)
'Masterful' (The Daily Telegraph).
Stewart Lee tour dates
This versatile comedy veteran delivers a highly improvised set which can cover a vast range of subjects and material. As seen on Mock The Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Now Show, The News Quiz and Loose Ends.
Chortle Award Winner 2009 and Winner of the Time Out Outstanding Comedy Achievement Award.
'Robin Ince is thoughtful, provocative and very funny' (The Times)
'When someone writes a history of modern comedy, they should make room for Robin Ince' (The Guardian).
Robin Ince tour dates
This popular stand-up and TV comedian is well-known for his appearances on the pop music quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks. His career as a performer began in 1984 when he quit his job as a civil servant to follow a new direction as a performance poet on the alternative comedy circuit and supporting bands such as The Style Council and The Housemartins. During the late '80s he worked with Billy Bragg, directing videos for both Bragg and Kirsty MacColl. Phill has an abiding love and in-depth knowledge of popular music, particularly ska, bluebeat and rhythm & blues. His hugely successful standup tours have included Jedi, Steady, Go and Quadrophobia, and he has worked extensively on radio, variously as a contributor, panellist and presenter. He has also toured as part of The Blockheads line-up.
Phill Jupitus tour dates
Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes, as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent)
'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe tour dates
Andrew is a very fine Irish comedian and BAFTA Award winner who can keep an audience focused with accessible and unpretentious topical comedy which has a pinch of his unique laddishness.
'I've seen the future of Irish Comedy and its name is Andrew Maxwell' (Irish Times)
'... infuriatingly excellent... he delivers a superb set' (The Sunday Times)
'Stand up is rarely this politically well informed or thought-provoking' (The Scotsman)
'All you can do is revel in the mischief this comically attuned Dubliner makes... utter magic' (The List)
'A social sage for the fast changing world... a wealth of first-rate material' (Fest).
Andrew Maxwell tour dates
Christian's first gig was playing Orson Carson in the Perrier-awarded 'Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw'. He has since gone on to use his accomplished musicianship, extensive vocal range and love of music to establish himself as a global comedy circuit headliner; at international festivals, on BBC radio and TV and recently on the award-winning 'Richard Herring: As It Occurs To Me'.
'If you're a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you're a Christian Reilly fan
already' (The Guardian).
Christian Reilly tour dates
The product of a strict Irish father and a glitzy Canadian 'stage mom', Katherine Ryan won neither friends nor pageant titles growing up. Try as she might to shed her questionable perspectives and super sparkly nature, she's not sure we can ever truly escape our childhood indoctrinations.
'She has perfect timing and enough attitude to stop an elephant in its tracks' (Time Out).
Katherine Ryan tour dates
Extraordinarily laid back comic; they should think twice before legalising whatever he's been taking...
Addy Van Der Borgh tour dates
