Magners Funhouse Comedy: Nathan Caton, Chris McCausland, Sean McLoughlin, Danny Ward
Visit www.funhousecomedy.co.uk for further information.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly obsevational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride.
'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks).
‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine).
'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle).
'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian).
Nathan Caton was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2015.

Although hailed as the only blind comic on the stand up circuit, comedian Chris McCausland makes light of it. He usually begins with a crack about the irony of a blind man doing observational comedy and then speeds off into his entertaining and refreshing set, making wry and perceptive comments about the rich and famous, every day life and suchlike. Instantly likeable and definitely memorable.
'Proper stand up, honest straightforward and balls-out funny' (Chortle)
'A must see!' (The Sunday Times)
'Always excellent' (The Times)
'Truly brilliant' (Three Weeks)
'The new face of comedy in the UK' (ITV)
'Shining Light!' (Sunday Express)
'... fabulously funny and a definite highlight' (Leicester Mercury).
Chris McCausland tour dates
Half-American downbeat comedian who draws on his 'life of grinding poverty' to produce the laughs. Expect dark tales of his family and love life (he even confesses to a medical condition that makes sex uncomfortable!). You can't help yourself laughing at his misfortune!
'His bleak world view was enlivened with brilliant and unexpected turns of phrase and the element of desperation as disaster piled on disaster had a cumulatively hilarious effect, as in farce, where the more dire the consequences for the protagonist, the harder we laugh at his discomfort' (Chortle). Tour support for Ricky Gervais.
'The best comedian you haven't heard of yet' (Mark Watson, Time Out)
'At once hilarious and painfully revelatory' (Chortle)
'The stand-out stand-up' (Evening Standard)
'What a genuinely fresh and powerful voice... It is wonderful' (Scotsman).
Sean McLoughlin tour dates
Danny Ward’s observational humour and his slightly manic style are both endearing and very funny.
He can turn the everyday trials that we all experience into piercingly well dissected anecdotes of exasperation and obsession – with wonderfully hilarious solutions. Professional since 2010, Danny performs throughout the UK and abroad at clubs, theatres and festivals.
A self proclaimed tataholic, Danny Ward is on a mission to spread the lesson he refuses to learn – when you try and do things on the cheap, it ends up costing you more.
He was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year in 2013 and has gigged extensively across the UK including comedy venues such as The Glee Clubs, Jongleurs, The Highlight, Just The Tonic, Baby Blue, Komedia, the Bearcat and Downstairs At The Kings Head.
He has also performed in Northern Ireland at the Belfast Empire, as well as in Germany, Tenerife, Maastricht and Croatia.
'Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered... This is top quality stand up...' (Three Weeks)
