'The vertically-challenged Scouser with a guitar, savage lyrics and a voice that will break your heart (if not your crockery); topical, incisive, witty and bloody-minded.' (Glee)
His original comedy songs combine razor sharp lyrics with tunes that put their foot in the
door of your mind and refuse to leave. Firmly based in rock 'n' roll and refusing to pull no
punches, these are not the 'oh so witty' ditties of penguin-suited plink plonk piano playing
posh gobs. They are that rarity - comedy songs which are actually funny.
For nine years Steve was the smaller one in the dynamic comedy duo Skint Video, stalwart's of the Edinburgh Festival, appearing on countless television programmes such as Saturday Live, radio such as The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and their own show in 1992/3 Songlines (BBC Radio 1). Skint Video went their different ways in 1993, since when Steve has been storming across the UK and Ireland as a solo artiste.
"A highly refreshing and original comic” (The Scotsman).
“Satirical songs pulled off with real aplomb” (The Independent).
Steve Gribbin tour dates
Tom is a frighteningly tall comedian, but a thoroughly nice man with a likeable stage presence and confident delivery. This Yorkshire funny man became a national have-a-go-hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for begging. He's also the winner of Channel 4's 'So You Think You're Funny?' competition.
An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they’re old friends. His warm and hilarious tales, told with true passion never fail to captivate the crowd. His television credits include Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy
Show, Live At The Comedy Store and Engineering Giants.
'Magical storytelling... a rare talent... hysterical and accomplished' (Time Out)
'The gods of comedy chose greatness for Tom' (The Scotsman).
Tom Wrigglesworth tour dates
Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee 2010, Gareth Richards is probably best known for his two years of co-hosting the Sony Gold Award winning Frank Skinner's Absolute Radio Show. In 2011 he completed a Soho Theatre run of his Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominated show, Stand Up Between Song, and appeared on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three).
Gareth has previously supported Rhod Gilbert on tour.
'Gorgeously low-key, faintly surreal songs played on the Omnichord... A delightful hour of comedy' (The Guardian)
'He’s a quietly clever craftsman with a big future' (Bruce Dessau, The Evening
'An effortlessly assured act... exceptionally inspired and truly memorable... His material has a delicious otherworldly quality' (Chortle).
Gareth Richards tour dates
With a charming stage manner coupled with a deft, quick wit it's easy to see why Nottingham Comedy Festival named Welsh comic Kiri Pritchard-McLean their Breakout Act Of The Year.
'She balances affection with an acute eye for the ridiculous to bring you a stand up set of well delivered, increasingly funny anecdotes... definitely one to watch' (Three Weeks)
'Kiri was by far the funniest and most quick witted, one to look out for in the future' (Leicester Mercury).
