Joke Thieves: Carl Donnelly, Loretta Maine, Benny Boot, Eric Lampaert, Pierre Novellie, Jason Patterson, Will Mars
A show where established comedians perform a set before the audience decides who steals material from who. Will they copy the material completely or take it in their own direction? Will it be a car crash or could it go down better than the original? Nothing is certain except the fun in finding out.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Carl started performing stand-up regularly in the early part of 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new comics currently climbing the comedy ladder.
Despite still being a relative newcomer, his confident, conversational style and childish sense of humour has seen him become a regular at clubs all over the country including various universities as part of the Avalon Comedy Network.
'Carl Donnelly effortlessly intertwines storytelling and observational humour with honed improvised skills' (http://www.comedy.co.uk)
'A ludicrously funny hour... effortless and utterly captivating' (The Skinny)
'This degree of innate comic talent is a rare and beautiful thing. Not to be missed' (Broadway Baby)
'One of the most engaging and bendy-minded comics on the circuit' (The Guardian)
'He's a remarkable talent – a relaxed, easygoing anecdotalist with an eye for funny details. An hour in his company is a true delight' (Time Out).

Psycho-intense singer-songwriter Loretta Maine makes Courtney Love look well-balanced. This pill-popping, booze-abusing, bunny-boiling car-crash of a rock star has been the most memorable creation of talented character comic Pippa Evans to date, and is now promoted to both her own show and her own band, Dog Vagina.
Loretta Maine tour dates
Benny Boot has been performing on the UK stand-up comedy circuit for 6 years. He is considered by many comedians as a wonderful stand-up artist to watch. Boot delivers his jokes in a unique style on a variety of strange topics. His engaging persona and material keeps the laughter rolling through the entire show and is guaranteed to bring any audience undone.
'He's got a keen instinct for the joke, an imaginative turn of phrase and an ability to find an offbeat angle to whatever he chooses to talk about' (Chortle).
Benny Boot tour dates
Eric is renowned for sweeping up audiences in the sheer energy of his performance. Delightfully weird with a keen eye for the absurd, his scatty character rips like a mini-hurricane.
Eric Lampaert tour dates
One of Mother Comedy's most exciting recent births, Pierre was born in Johannesburg in South Africa but moved to the Isle of Man when he was a boy. He studied Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Cambridge where he was Vice President of the Cambridge Footlights, touring the United States with their 2012 show 'Perfect Strangers' after a sell-out month at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Amused Moose Laugh Off winner.
Pierre Novellie tour dates
Comedian from MTV Base's comedy funhouse. His strong performances have led to him being nominated for Best Newcomer at the Black Entertainment Comedy Awards 2008. Jason covers a range of topics in his material from celebrities and relationships to gang culture and his parents.
'Brilliant observations backed by a perfectly measured delivery' (Comedy Central Live)
'Jason Patterson absolutely sounds the part. He's got a rich, deep voice that oozes confidence, and a perfectly measured delivery that gives him instant authority' (Chortle).
Jason Patterson tour dates
