Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Carl started performing stand-up regularly in the early part of 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new comics climbing the comedy ladder.
His confident, conversational style and childish sense of humour has seen him become a regular at clubs all over the country including various universities as part of the Avalon Comedy Network. He won the 2007 Chortle Award for the best newcomer and the 2007 Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year Award.
'Carl Donnelly effortlessly intertwines storytelling and observational humour with honed improvised skills' (http://www.comedy.co.uk)
'A ludicrously funny hour... effortless and utterly captivating' (The Skinny)
'This degree of innate comic talent is a rare and beautiful thing. Not to be missed' (Broadway Baby)
'One of the most engaging and bendy-minded comics on the circuit' (The Guardian)
'He's a remarkable talent – a relaxed, easygoing anecdotalist with an eye for funny details. An hour in his company is a true delight' (Time Out).
Carl Donnelly was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
Carl Donnelly tour dates
A headliner at London's Comedy Store and one of the UK's finest comics. A topical, satirical, musical comedian whose quirky brand of improvisation and finely crafted material have made him one of the UK’s most sought-after stand-ups.
Paul Thorne tour dates
Jim Tavaré is a BAFTA award winning British comedian. He played Tom the Innkeeper in Harry Potter 3. In the US he made TV history by becoming the first overseas act to reach the finale of NBC''s Last Comic Standing.
He won a BAFTA for the ITV series 'The Sketch Show', wrote and starred in his own TV shows 'The Jim Tavare Show' (co-written with Ricky Gervais) and 'Jim Tavare Pictures Presents'.
TV credits include NBC's Chuck, Showtime's Californication, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Tosh.0..
Jim was involved in a near-fatal head-on car crash in Los Angeles in March 2017. He sustained horri?c injuries - a broken neck, both clavicles, sternum, 15 ribs, 2 collapsed lungs, over 20 fractures in his leg, a shattered ankle and heel, and a hand that detached from his wrist. Jim spent 3 weeks in intensive care in the USA battling for his life.
As Jim’s US medical costs began to rise and with months still ahead of physical therapy and care, Jim’s friends within both the UK and US comedy circuits stepped in to help by putting on benefit shows.
Jim Tavare tour dates
A young Dubliner, with a sharp and witty take on life. He has been climbing the comedy ladder steadily for a few years and after a year-long break, he started to hit the big time in 2002, with regular slots at the Edinburgh Festival. In 2003 he was a semi-finalist in several national comedy competitions.
'A hugely energetic performance, literally bouncing around the stage and infusing the room with an infectious passion' (Chortle)
'Natural and genuinely funny' (Galway Independent)
'... Irish comedian Andrew Stanley, who oozes gentle charm. He bounces around the stage delivering his witty observations, soaking the room with his contagious enthusiasm' (Funhouse Comedy).
