Best In Live Stand-up Comedy: Dave Fulton, Andrew Bird, Tobias Persson, Owen O'Neill
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Whoever it was who decided that Americans don't have any sense of irony, they forgot to tell Dave Fulton. This wry Seattle wag is positively brimming over with ironic invective.
With his stringy beard, straggly long hair and rock 'n' roll black leather jacket, Fulton looks more like a refugee from a defunct British heavy metal band than an all-American stand-up... there's a salty flavour to his live club set that you'd scarcely describe as feminist. It's these contradictions that make Fulton so fascinating, and fun to watch, especially when he's riffing with British punters half a world away from home. (The Guide).
Dave Fulton tour dates
Watching The Young Ones with his brothers as an eight year old, at two in the morning on Comic Relief, he realised then that he wanted to be funny in some way. Relaxed and improvisatory, Andrew Bird is one of those rare comedians who makes friends with his audiences in an instant with his engaging mix of childhood stories and more recent anecdotes.
He has supported Rhod Gilbert, Lee Hurst and Michael McIntyre as well as performing internationally.
'Superb... the exciting rising star' (Time Out)
'A natural comedian' (The Stage)
'Beautifully observed and insightful... not only an entertaining story but a very funny hour of fine stand-up' (Chortle)
'Effortlessly engaging and funny as hell' (Rhod Gilbert).
Andrew Bird tour dates
Stand-up comic and actor from Sweden.
'His material is thoughtful and silly, and he makes some sophisticated parallels alongside some surreal little islands of the bizarre and profane. Easy-going intelligence, and a curiosity which makes him lovely' (The Skinny, August 2011)
'Refreshing taste of absurdity, comfortably mastered by the Swedish comic' (Three Weeks, August 2011)
'Thoughts that are likely to strike a chord... concisely and effectively put' (Steve Bennett, Chortle).
Tobias Persson tour dates
A raw and savage comedy talent. No subject is sacrosanct, no topic too controversial. He is a regular on the world comedy circuit, performing in places as far-flung as Jakata and Hull. He acted alongside Liam Neeson in the film, 'Michael Collins' and occasionally he brings together his love of poetry with his stand-up routine.
