Laughterhouse Comedy: Daliso Chaponda, Carl Hutchinson, Phil Nichol, Chris Cairns
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.
'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 tour dates

'... firm highlight' (The Scotsman).

'Nichol is absolutely born to perform, and the show is brilliant' (The Skinny)
'Attacks his material with all the restraint of a Tasmanian Devil in a foghorn
factory' (The Times)
'Phil Nichol is an extraordinary performer – entrancing and alarming in equal measure' (The Stage)
'Very polished, witty and insightful. It is also extremely funny' (List)
'Seismically powerful award-winning comic force' (The Scotsman).
Phil Nichol tour dates
With bags of charm and a natural enthusiasm which makes him irresistible to audiences Chris may not look very quick on his feet but he more than makes up for it with his speed of thought. He has gained a reputation for being able to handle the toughest of rooms with his sharp put downs and cutting remarks in addition to being known all over the Northwest as a friend to the audience but a deadly foe to the heckler. He was also the winner of the Eric Morecambe Comedian of The Year (2002) and Liverpool Comedian of The Year (2003). Amiable, chatty. People love him. Oh, and he tells pretty funny jokes too.
