The Calderdale Comedy Club: Andrew Bird, Nick Wilty, Tom Toal, Tony Simpson
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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
No stranger to the circuit, he has won many awards and his TV appearances include Punt & Dennis, Rory Bremner and Paul Merton. He has also been warm-up comedian for Smith & Jones; in fact Mel Smith called him 'The best warm-up act in the business'.
In 2004 Wilty hit the headlines for the wrong reasons after an unwanted genital piercing in a camping accident at the Glastonbury Festival. That didn't stop him compering the cabaret tent two days later. 'I decided to show the front row the close-ups on my digital camera. As I went along the line, their heads went back in disgust. It was like a Mexican wave of revulsion.' What a professional!
Nick Wilty tour dates
Comedian, writer and actor from the town of Bexleyheath, South East London.
'Toal's ease of interacting with the audience is a true talent' (Hairline)
'Funny and touching. Winning over his audience with charm, genuine depth of feeling, and free tiny yoghurts, Toal painted an impressive, and at times, disturbing picture of a man on the edge... humour from the heart' (Three Weeks)
'Master of storytelling' (http://www.PunchlineUK.wordpress.com)
'You might find yourself taking a paracetemol to kill the pain in your jawline
'We forget the misery and cold of the outside as the Tom Toal comedy glow warms
us all' (Kate Copstick)
'Touching addition to the Daniel Kitson-esque heart-on-sleeve comedy sub genre' (List).
Tom Toal tour dates
Tony Simpson is a topical writer and enjoys sharing his sometimes surreal spin on life and the news. Energy and positivity are his guilds on this journey and loves nothing more than taking the audiences hand and dragging them along.
His love of life and failings to find love are subjects which he touches on but not how you would normally expect, his ideas of how people can find love will have you laughing and cringing.
