A barnstorming, madcap Canadian stand-up comedian who was voted Time Out Comedian of the Year 1999, and was a Perrier nominee in 2002. Totally unpredictable; those with a heart condition be warned!
Phil Nichol tour dates
The stand-up circuit's only deaf comedian. If there is another one, he hasn't heard! He brings his own inimitable brand of humour. A vibrant and energetic performer, Steve utilises his deafness to produce tears of laughter from his audience.
'Revelatory and very funny' (The Guardian)
'Warm, funny, frank and thought-provoking' (The Scotsman).
Steve Day tour dates
Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars.
'Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended' (BBC)
'A joy to listen to. Provocative, poignant and ultimately hilarious' (The Guardian)
'I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out!' (The List).
Daliso Chaponda tour dates
Best Debut Show Nominee - Leicester Comedy Festival Awards 2009. Jim is an amusingly tattooed, manic depressive former child prodigy with tall tales of his wrongness coming out of his ears. And yet he used to be so nice...what on earth happened? This is his story so far.
Jim has performed in Singapore, Denmark and Los Angeles as well as all over the UK. His stories are brutally honest, always true, and often unbelievable - and have won him an army of fans all over the world.
'Wonderfully gritty... his struggles with mental illness and alcoholism make for impressive comic pickings' (The Guardian)
'It's obvious that Jim Smallman is a natural-born compere. He has such an easy rapport with the audience and tells his tales with a fluidity and energy that keeps everyone attentive' (Chortle).
