'Lock's signature mix of absurdism and everyday observation gets more effective with each new show' (The Guardian) 'Punchy, inventive, superb... undeniably brilliant' (The Times) 'What's remarkable about Lock is how he burnishes the dross of observational platitude into gold. A comic in peak form' (The Guardian). Sean Lock was named in Ents24's top 10 biggest selling comedians of 2016.

Sarah Keyworth

Sarah Keyworth appearing at this event

Originally from Nottingham, Sarah Keyworth is becoming a regular on the London circuit and has supported Stewart Francis on tour. Her material is a mix of honest anecdotal storytelling about her Midlands upbringing, made surreal with the occasional addition of a silly observation. She delivers sharp lines with a cheeky smile and moments of sudden deadpan that leave the audience wanting more.

Andrew Maxwell

Andrew Maxwell appearing at this event

Andrew is a very fine Irish comedian and BAFTA Award winner who can keep an audience focused with accessible and unpretentious topical comedy which has a pinch of his unique laddishness. 'I've seen the future of Irish Comedy and its name is Andrew Maxwell' (Irish Times) '... infuriatingly excellent... he delivers a superb set' (The Sunday Times) 'Stand up is rarely this politically well informed or thought-provoking' (The Scotsman) 'All you can do is revel in the mischief this comically attuned Dubliner makes... utter magic' (The List) 'A social sage for the fast changing world... a wealth of first-rate material' (Fest) 'One of the most significant comedians working in the country today' (The Independent) 'Expect pin-point accents, biting observations and suave stories... One of the best comics around. Blissfully funny' (Time Out).
