All Star Comedy Show: Daliso Chaponda, Micky P Kerr, Noel James, Mandy Muden
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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.
Daliso Chaponda tour dates
2018 Britain's Got Talent finalist, Leeds-based primary school teacher turned comedian and social commentator, Micky P Kerr, is a breath of fresh air on the live comedy circuit. Fusing together music, spoken word and comedy, with his tongue often planted firmly in his cheek, Kerr has been described as the b*stard spawn of John Cooper Clarke.
“Leeds-based Kerr’s assured and relaxed mix of one-liners, poetry and songs certainly impressed” – Harrogate Advertiser
"Kerr’s ability to get laughs out of them marks him out as perfect Radio 4 material" - Three Weeks Edinburgh
Micky P Kerr tour dates
Welsh comic wizard described as surreal, absurd, intelligent and somehow strangely attractive, but then he would say that, wouldn't he?! His 2001 and 2002 Edinburgh shows received rave reviews, catapulting him into the upper echelons of the comedy circuit.
'Liberates the lunatic side to our personalities - brilliantly!' (Time Out)
'Stands out like a droll giant in a comedy land of trite dwarfs' (The Independent)
'Absolutely Hilarious!' (HTV & Wales on Sunday).
Noel James tour dates
Stand-up comedian and sit-down magician. Described as like 'Alison Steadman playing a beauty consultant doing Tommy Cooper-style magic – but without the fez', Mandy would take that as a compliment.
With an act made for the digitally-enhanced age, Mandy has audiences astounded with both the brilliance of some (certainly not all) of her magic and in hysterics at her off-the-cuff one-liners and observations.
