Funhouse Comedy Club: Andrew Bird, Angie McEvoy, John Newton, Spiky Mike
Headlining the night is the effortlessly engaging, Andrew Bird. Watching The Young Ones with his brothers as an eight year old, at two in the morning on Comic Relief, he realized then that he wanted to be funny in some way. With his personal appeal and superbly crafted, funny anecdotes he captivates his audiences. He has supported Rhod Gilbert and Lee Hurst as well as performing internationally.

He has supported Rhod Gilbert, Lee Hurst and Michael McIntyre as well as performing internationally.
