Daliso Chaponda

Daliso Chaponda appearing at this event

Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars and was a finalist on Britain's Got Talent 2017. He has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticize the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything. He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader. Daliso has appeared at many festivals that have included Melbourne, Edinburgh, Singapore and Cape Town Festivals. He is also a prolific fiction writer and has had his science fiction, murder mysteries and fantasy fiction published in numerous magazines and anthologies. He also co-wrote a play that aired on BBC Radio 4. 'Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended' (BBC) 'A joy to listen to. Provocative, poignant and ultimately hilarious' (The Guardian) 'I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out!' (The List) 'It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his racial and socially insightful comedy' (News and Star, Carlisle) 'Absolutely [took] the roof off the place. Brilliant, brilliant act' (The Frog and Bucket). Daliso Chaponda was #9 in Ents24's Hardest Working Comedians of 2018 list.

Tom Glover

Tom Glover appearing at this event

Following in the footsteps of the West Country’s finest comedy talent, Tom has been growing in the dark depths of the south west where he is a regular MC and headliner for those rooms no-one else can afford to drive to. Gigging to everyone from students to the ladies of the WI this plucky comedian has developed a knack of winning over any crowd with his tales of life on the outside and his observations on the minutiae of the everyday. And if that’s not your thing he also does funny accents and pulls silly faces.

Patrick Draper

Patrick Draper appearing at this event

Since starting in stand-up in October 2011, Patrick has successfully driven to over 200 stand-up gigs and delivered a selection of deadpan jokes and stories to a range of different audiences: big, small, enthusiastic, indifferent, confused. 'He has won our gong shows 5 times. Very well written material with killer punchlines!' (Spiky Mike, Funhouse Comedy Clubs) 'An extremely unique brand of comedy. Patrick has nailed his persona and material from the off and has blown away every audience he has performed at for us, from our gong show to our two professional nights. His act can only be described as filthy but genius' (Roger Swift, Teknicolour Smoof) 'A compelling stage presence ushering forth gently acidic one-liners with many an unexpected twist. In short, a most amusing cove!' (Anthony J Brown, Stagefright Comedy) 'Give him a gig. Solidly funny over 20 minutes with several bits you'll want to tell your mates as if you wrote it!' (Paul Savage) 'Patrick Draper is extremely funny, he is intelligent, his persona is grim, and yet warm. I've seen audiences physically lean forward in anticipation of what he is going to say next, then to be followed by an explosion of communal laughter. He has become a favorite in the Midlands, and I love it when he is on the bill!' (David Rees Jones, Promoter).
