Best In Live Stand-up Comedy: Joe Lycett, Ian Cognito, Paul McCaffrey, Andy Robinson
This is an over 18s only event.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Joe Lycett is a hugely talented comedian with an unaffected, relaxed and effortless stage presence. An appealing, engaging and natural performer. His comedy career started off at Manchester University, winning the Chortle Student Comedy Award in 2009.
'Imaginative and cheekily subversive comedy... entertainingly mischievous... An intensely charming and talented young comic' (The Guardian)
'Joe Lycett is one of the strongest emerging comedy talents we've seen in a long time. This young man has a huge future' (Time Out)
'A delightfully natural style that builds a real connection with the audience... an accomplished storyteller... Finds brilliance in what could be merely workaday' (Chortle)
'Rising talent Joe Lycett already possesses the confidence and relaxed, homely charm of an old campaigner' (The Times).
Joe Lycett was named in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians of 2015.

Ian Cognito has been compared to Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks and Gerry Sadowitz. Winner of the Time Out Stand Up Comedy Performance Award 1999. He has been excluded from many venues because of his onstage antics.
Outspoken, opinionated and totally clued up, Ian Cognito's take on the world will have you convinced and convulsed (with laughter) as he spits his darkly humorous vitriol over an unsuspecting crowd.
'If you want to know what's wrong with New Britain, Ian Cognito's going to tell you. And if you don't, you'd better keep your mouth shut. Just stunning' (The Guardian)
'This electrifying, terrifying and ultimately vulnerable performer warmed a cold Glasgow audience to boiling point. Stand up should always be like this' (The List)
'First time I saw Cognito I was blown away. I was blown away the second time too. Third time I thought I could do that' (Reginald D Hunter).

Paul McCaffrey is a stand-up comedian and comic actor who can be watched on the BBC3 prank show, Impractical Jokers, starring alongside Roisin Conaty, Joel Dommett and Marek Larwood.
'Hugely professional... likeable, animated and fluid with a first-rate sense of timing' (Chortle)
'He has charm, charisma and success written all over him' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'Obviously born to be a comic’ (The Scotsman).
Paul McCaffrey tour dates
'Hailing from the hotbed of comedy that is Oldbury in the West Midlands, Andy has been a star at the Glee for the last 6 years. A bit of a smuthound and the occasional flash of genius with his guitar has made him a must see comedian in Birmingham. He has recently been making waves as the driving force behind BRMB subversive afternoon show the 'Barmy Brummies'.' (Glee)
'... the very funny and relaxed Andy Robinson... draws his audience into his world and then surprises them with his amusing tales' (Funhouse Comedy).
