Ruth E Cockburn
A regular fixture at ‘Laughing Cows’ at Manchester’s legendary Frog & Bucket comedy venue and an established playwright with her work having being performed at numerous festivals from Edinburgh to Sydney. Ruth’s comedy is a perilously potent mix of spot-on, slightly surreal social commentary and brilliantly inventive, hummable and instantly hilarious songs. 'An intriguing personality' - Chortle. 'Plain and simple, she's just funny' - Terry Alderton.

(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.
