Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
'One of comedy's unsung heroes. Geordie singer, rude, provocative, daft and cheeky...'
John Fothergill tour dates
Carey Marx's wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.
Formerly in double-act 'Kez and Jodi', a comedy illusion act. Live wire, Canadian comedy magician. Winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival 2009, he blends dark humour with a mischievous, gleeful delivery,
'Marx's slick delivery lends itself to clever verbal comedy, while his flexible features can switch in an instant from cheeky schoolboy grin to menacing stare' (The Scotsman)
'Hilariously demented' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'Excellent' (The Guardian)
'He is a masterful stylist, gracefully switching from surrealism to sardonic irony' (Skinny Fest)
'Anecdotally debauched... But if his lines are frequently sick, they're elegantly written, too, and there's a childlike glee to his naughtiness' (The Herald)
'A darkly comic Quentin Tarantino' (Chortle)
'Opium for the people' (Broadway Baby)
'supremely crafted comedy' (The List).
Carey Marx tour dates
A laid back, silly and utterly charismatic comedian. His shows combine surreal tales with cleverly crafted songs. Steve has a gift for creating immersive performances from acute observations.
'Absolutely stormed it' (Daily Mail)..
Steve Shanyaski tour dates
Award-winning stand-up from the surrealist comedian who also draws cartoons and has written a book, Don't Arm Wrestle A Pirate, which was featured on the Richard and Judy Book Club for Christmas 2007.
In 2008 he won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year.
'Fabulous narrative arc and tremendous panache that is utterly winning and delights an audience’ (Chortle)
'Charming, inventive and very funny' (British Comedy Guide)
'Has the audience rolling in the aisles for the vast majority of an action-packed hour. Paker is a riotous, iconoclastic star in the making' (Fest)
'... the star is Henry Paker; every one of his jokes is built up perfectly, and the punchline is always hilarious. Clever material, but silly enough not to alienate anyone' (Three Weeks).
