Featuring

Paddy Lennox

Paddy Lennox appearing at this event

Paddy has been tour support for Rhod Gilbert, Lucy Porter and Micky Flanagan. He started Stand-Up in December 2001 only to be interrupted with a couple of comedies at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and a couple of surreal commercials in far off lands, before returning to his new found passion. A naturally funny, warm comic who plays all the big (and small) clubs in the UK. He has also gigged in South Africa, Germany, Ireland, Croatia, Estonia, Malta, and lil' ol' Slovenia. '... simply a scream' (The Daily Telegraph) '... comedy the way it should be: a laugh-a-minute which leaves the audience wishing the show was just a little bit longer... gentle Irish lilt belies a mischievous sense of humour' (Fest). 'Excellent stand-up, Paddy Lennox, is laid-back and charismatic. Vastly entertaining. This show proves that the AAA stand-up comedians have great things ahead of them' (Three Weeks).

Prince Abdi

Prince Abdi appearing at this event

A relative newcomer who has the material and confidence of a full time comic. He has a lovely style in his delivery - pacy, upbeat and infectious - that makes the audience warm to him. Set pieces such as his Bollywood and Nollywood reconstruction capitalise on that energy well.

Nick Page

Nick Page appearing at this event

With storytelling comics there's a moment where the audience asks themselves 'I wonder if that's true?'. With Nick there is more doubt, because the stories are so outlandish, and yet at the same time there's the sure knowledge that every story is true, and that his is a life lived laughing from disaster to disaster. His debut Edinburgh Festival show had sell-out performances, critical acclaim and a host of 4 star reviews. He is in enormous demand in comedy clubs throughout the UK, as a headline act and MC, and has been for the last 12+ years.

Silky

Silky appearing at this event

Runner up for just about every award going, including BBC New Comedy Award, and organiser of Kill For A Seat comedy nights. 'Supremely talented musical comedian’ (www.BroadwayBaby.com) 'Rarely on TV, occasionally on radio. The title is unrelated. It just made me laugh' (Three Weeks) 'Your funny best friend, only funnier’ (The Herald) 'Honest, heartfelt, slickly delivered, irresistible and, yes, occasionally disturbing stand-up...Relatable, warm and crucially very funny' List 'Equally at home as a compere or main act, Silky has consistently proved himself one of the best and most reliable performers around. Highly recommended' (Leeds Guide) 'Considered and clever: excellent timing and dry delivery revealed a comic at the top of his game' (352 Magazine Luxembourg) 'Always brilliant’ (Metro) '... a very, very funny fella... just brilliant' (John Bishop) '... Silky whose irresistible stage persona combines angriness with silliness. He has a mastery of the descriptive phrase and his mix of self-deprecating wit, music and gently quirky material brings audiences together in tears of laughter (Funhouse Comedy).
