Foodie Friday: Ian Smith, Phil Jerrod, Angela Barnes, Mike Bubbins
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
One of the new crop of emerging acts, Ian Smith employs a careful, unhurried delivery that conceals a nicely pointed attitude with a sack full of neat gags to match.
'Fantastically funny' (The Times)
'Star of the future' (Time Out).
'... delightfully offbeat writing, a mastery of phrasing and summons up some fine comic images. A talent, for sure' (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
Winner of the 'People's Champion Award' at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 with his show 'Snowflake'.
Winner - Amused Moose Comedy Award People’s Champion
Winner - ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award

Before becoming a comedian, Angela worked in health and social care. In 2011, she won the BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition. Since then Angela has become a regular on BBC’s The News Quiz, Newsjack and Mock The Week.
She has also appeared on BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), and BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show.
“Feels like a sure-fire bet the instant she utters her opening lines.” (The Scotsman).
“The pace is fast, the material strong and the delivery perfect” (Chortle).
“She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight-talking and extremely funny comic” (The Guardian).
Angela Barnes was #8 in Ents24's Hardest Working Comedians of 2018 list.
Angela Barnes tour dates
Mike has supported Rhod Gilbert on his sold-out national tour, written and performed how own show at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, been a regular guest comedian on BBC Radio Wales, and regularly performs, and headlines, at some of the best comedy clubs and theatres across the UK.
His comedy style could be described as mix of observation and exasperation, although really funny would be accurate too!
