Outside The Box Comedy Club: Rob Beckett, Addy Van Der Borgh, Andrew Bird, Maff Brown
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Rob grew up in south east London in a large extended family of taxi drivers where it was a fight to be heard.
As a middle child desperate for attention he needed to be funny so was in awe of his Grandad's jokes, but only until he saw a Tommy Cooper video and realised Grandad Cook was a massive plagiarist.
'A little short of a revelation (The Scotsman)
'Relentlessly smiley, perpetually grinning Londoner whose unshowy, unpretentious but thoroughly funny shtick has every chance of winning him a big audience' (The Guardian)
'He already has the confidence of a veteran' (The Times)
'Joyous, cheek aching and touching stand up' (Shortlist).
Rob Beckett tour dates
Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the Stand-up Show on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on Live At The Comedy Store for Comedy Central, Live At Jongleurs and The World Stands Up for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, Brain Candy. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of TV Meltdown for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including the legendary Loose Ends on Radio 4.
'An unassuming comic genius' (Metro)
'Brilliant natural clown' (The Daily Telegraph)
'... van der Borgh can reel off cracking gags and compete with the best freestylers such as Ross Noble' (Evening Standard)
'An excellent stand-up with intelligence and wit' (The Guardian)
Addy Van Der Borgh tour dates
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.
'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
Maff Brown began performing in November 2005. His weekly club, Outside The Box Comedy Club, was nominated and won the prestigious Best Comedy Club Award from the renowned website chortle.co.uk.
Brown tours the UK comedy circuit developing his own material. March 2007 saw him tackle the comedy clubs in New York City and has had numerous gigs in London's legendary Comedy Store, most popular were the charity fundraiser gigs for Macmillan Cancer Support. These have been held on each September after his return from the Edinburgh festival.
2007 saw a successful gig with Brown hosting and the bill including Dara O'Briain, Russell Howard and was headlined by Al Murray. 2008 was a total sell out with The Independent heralding the evening as 'A triumph!'
'Maff is one of those comics that doesn't need to try. Jokes fall out of him like gold coins coming out of a pirate's chest' (Frank Skinner)
'I think Maff Brown is very funny, but if you don't agree you can still laugh at his stupid hair' (Stephen Merchant)
'Brilliant stand up, great material' (Bill Bailey)
'Jokes fall out of him like gold coins from a pirate's chest' (Frank Skinner)
'The love child of Leo Sayer and a performing seal' (Jack Dee).
