Best In Live Stand-up Comedy: Jason Cook, Lloyd Langford, Mark Olver, Mick Ferry
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Be ready for pretty much anything when Jason Cook takes to the stage. Behind his cheerful Geordie exterior lurks a dark, sharp comedic mind capable of taking an unsuspecting audience to places they didn't want to go. Dwarves, newspaper vendors, the toilets at raves, true-to-life stories that drag you in and won't let go. Cook is close to the edge but always intriguing and blessed with the sort of charm that'll have you laughing in spite of yourself.
'A wonderfully life-affirming, beautifully crafted, total and utter joy. My jaw aches from laughing' (Time Out)
'Few people have his warmth and spontaneity; it's an act you'd gladly watch again and again' (The Skinny).
Jason Cook tour dates
Welsh comedian and comedy writer who has appeared on Ask Rhod Gilbert and written material for TV shows Live At The Apollo, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and The King Is Dead. Lloyd's hearty comedy crawl is a delicious blend of jokes, stories, observations, ad-libs, one-liners, accents, theories, topical gags and self-deprecation.
'Particularly brilliant' (Fest)
'... an undiscovered genius' (The Guardian).
Lloyd Langford tour dates
Stand up comedian and compere at Jester Club and Bristol Comedy Pub. A highly popular comic and TV warm-up artist, having done 3 Edinburgh shows and headlined and compered for all the top clubs in the UK. Olver's Diary Of A Serial Killer won the Best New Show award at Leicester Comedy Festival.
'Olver has a great story to tell' (The List).
'Cheerful and funny' (The Guardian).
'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).
Mark Olver tour dates
Popular circuit comedian and regular compere for several comedy nights. He is probably best known for his Comedy Store improvisations, but after starting his professional career as a support act for Peter Kay he was soon selling out his own one-man shows, and things look like they are only going to get better for Derker's most famous son.
On TV Mick has starred in BBC1`s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as Comedy Blue and The Comedy Store (both Comedy Central). He made his big screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Looking For Eric – a hit feature film at the Cannes film festival where it was nominated for the prestigious Palm D’Or. A prolific comic, he is a writer on John Bishop’s Britain (BBC1) and has helped make the show a ratings success.
'See him or regret it' (John Bishop)
'Absolute legend, incredibly funny' (Jason Manford)
'Performs with style and conviction... highly enjoyable' (Chortle).
