Best In Live Stand-up Comedy: Ninia Benjamin, Alistair Barrie, Mark Maier, Pat Cahill
This is an over 18s only event.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Armed with a wide smile, her warmth on and off the stage lets her get away with murder. One of BBC's award-winning 3 Non-Blondes. Ninia is a favourite guest and commentator for many popular discussion shows, for example Sky Comedy Close Up. Other recent television appearances include Total Wipeout and Celebrity Masterchef whilst her vocal talents can be heard in CBeebies’ Tinga Tinga Tales from February 2010.
While Ninia’s popularity on television continues to soar, her stand-up remains at the highest level. She is a regular headliner at all the top venues across the UK, such as Jongleurs, Up the Creek, The Banana Cabaret, Glee Clubs and Bound & Gagged.
'The Comedy Assassin' (The Voice).
Ninia Benjamin tour dates
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).
Alistair Barrie tour dates
Top comedian who, apart from his regular spots at The Improv and The Comedy Store, has performed all over the world. In 1996 he took his critically acclaimed one-man show, Get Off With Mark Maier, to Edinburgh where it garnered much further praise. This multi-talented comedian has a remarkable talent for accents.
'It's high time someone gave him a TV show of his own!' (The Guardian).
"Blessed with killer timing" (Metro).
Mark Maier tour dates
Winner of the amused Moose New Act of the Year 2011.
'Combining off-beat jokes with songs about dying pets and choice fatigue, Cahill’s unpretentiously surreal and absurd outlook has seen him win numerous awards and secured him firmly in the one to watch category' (PBJ)
'This quirky performer has true star quality and bags of originality, mixing physical humour, gimmicks, wordplay and comedy songs. Imagine a cross between Sean Lock and Eddie Izzard and you might be getting somewhere, but nowhere close’ (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'... Wonderfully weird’ (The Guardian).
Pat Cahill tour dates
