Set List: Stand-Up Comedy Without A Net: Tony Law, Andrew Maxwell, Henning Wehn, Paul Foot, Mitch Benn
A Whose Line Is It Anyway?-style challenge for stand-up comedy!
Comedy pros are handed an original, never-before-seen set list of topics, partially written by the audience. From this they create spontaneous, original stand-up on the spot.
Each new set list is projected onscreen, so the audience follows along and gets inside the minds of comedians to see how each crafts their own particular style of comedy right in the moment of creation.
A playground for the comedy brain!
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Tony is a triple Chortle award winner and was a Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award 2012 nominee. As seen recently on Have I Got News For You, Buzzcocks, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and more.
'One of the finest and funniest comics on the circuit... destined for comedy stardom' (Time Out)
'Form-busting and hugely enjoyable' (The Times)
'Clever and blithely zany' (The Daily Telegraph)
'to see Tony Law is to inhale deep breaths of comedy oxygen' (The Herald)
'An ever-changing, hard-to-contain, force of nature' (The Guardian)
'A fine celebration of the absurd, full of laughs like no other... a top-notch comic who marries a powerful delivery with some deceptively ingenious material' (Chortle).
Tony Law tour dates
Andrew is a very fine Irish comedian and BAFTA Award winner who can keep an audience focused with accessible and unpretentious topical comedy which has a pinch of his unique laddishness.
'I've seen the future of Irish Comedy and its name is Andrew Maxwell' (Irish Times)
'... infuriatingly excellent... he delivers a superb set' (The Sunday Times)
'Stand up is rarely this politically well informed or thought-provoking' (The Scotsman)
'All you can do is revel in the mischief this comically attuned Dubliner makes... utter magic' (The List)
'A social sage for the fast changing world... a wealth of first-rate material' (Fest)
'One of the most significant comedians working in the country today' (The Independent)
'Expect pin-point accents, biting observations and suave stories... One of the
best comics around. Blissfully funny' (Time Out).
Andrew Maxwell tour dates
The self-styled 'German Comedy Ambassador in London', Henning Wehn is a regular guest on the British comedy television programme 'FAQ U' and has appeared on the BBC Radio 5 Live radio show 'Fighting Talk ', where he is 'in it, to win it', as well as two appearances on Radio 4's 'The Unbelievable Truth'.
Wehn's act plays upon the prevailing post-war stereotype of Germans; a large part of his routine is based around comprehensively analyzing and explaining his punchlines and jokes in the smallest detail.
'A diplomatic master class' (The Scotsman)
'Brought the audience to its knees' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Marvellous' (The Guardian).
Henning Wehn tour dates
Camp crusader whose pedantry, bluff and innuendo-ridden rants have made him an audience favourite.
He has previously been voted BBC Comedian Of The Year. He is also an Open Mic Award winner and Perrier Newcomer Nominee.
So he's pretty good then!
'It's baffling to me that Paul is not a household name in this country. His routines are like jazz clusters, loose hammocks, choked to the brim with jokes and ideas'
'Inspired, surreal and incomprehensibly funny' (Chortle)
'Capable of raising a laugh with just a brief shudder in the beat between jokes' (Wow247)
'He is completely in charge. An hour in his company is one of wet faced glee and it's over in a flash' (The Scotsman).
Paul Foot tour dates
Previous winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Travels the UK with his guitar, creating laughter wherever he goes, and is also a writer, performer and the resident musician on Radio 4's 'The Now Show'.
'The country's leading musical satirist' (The Times).
'Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny' (The Guardian).
'Less of him could really turn out to be more than he ever was' (The Scotsman).
'Mitch is a highly intelligent comic who fires out funny material at the speed of a machine gun. You really do have to pay attention to him, but do so because the content does deserve to be heard and appreciated' (One4Review).
Mitch Benn tour dates
