Krater Comedy Club Valentine's Special : Alistair Barrie, Joe Rowntree, Jonathan Mayor, Mark Olver
Treat a loved one to an evening of hilarious stand-up comedy in this Valentine’s Special Krater!
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).

'... has the unique ability to take a cold room and reduce it to fits of laughter' (GQ Magazine)
'Bags of madcap energy and an instant daft allure... It is his use of very specific and nonsensical language that is so captivatingly funny' (Chortle)
'Ridiculous in its simplicity but with a lot of obviously thought-through preparation, this is an amazing example of how to do it right' (Graeme Connelly on Morgan Berry).
Joe Rowntree tour dates
'A self-obsessed, glittery queen with a larger-than-life personality who arrives on stage in a bamboozling mix of innuendo' (Manchester Evening News)
'An incredible presence on the stage. Mesmerising to watch and an extremely articulate improviser. Fantastic' (XS Malarkey).

'Educational, entertaining, intimate and expertly marshalled by Olver, this is highly recommended for comedy fans and essential viewing for aspiring comics' (The Skinny).
'This was one of the most entertaining hours I've had at the Fringe. The guests on this occasion weren't under pressure to perform, but responded to Olver's pertinent and flowing questions with a surprising honesty. Fascinating for aspiring comics and enthusiastic fans alike' (Three Weeks).
