Banana Cabaret: Andrew Maxwell, John Fothergill, Andre Vincent, Simon Bligh
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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
'One of comedy's unsung heroes. Geordie singer, rude, provocative, daft and cheeky...'
John Fothergill tour dates
After cutting his teeth performing on the pavements of the world and winning the Time Out Street Performer Of The Year Award 1987, he transferred his skills to stand-up. He toured mainly in the USA and Canada, including a support slot for Bob Hope, before returning to his native London in 1994. Over five years on the circuit in this country have seen him rise to one of the most widely respected performers doing the rounds.
'He always gets people laughing through his accomplished stand-up skills, evident in his scalpel-sharp ad-libs and outstanding one-liners' (Chortle)
'Aside from his ability to sustain a single narrative for a full hour, with thought-provoking originality and biting humour, Vincent also uses video to deliver one of the most disarming punch lines you're ever likely to see on the Fringe' (The Scotsman)
'An improvising comedy genius' (The Guardian)
'He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business' (The Times)
'Ferociously funny' (The Sunday Times)
'Honesty and truth (and funny lines) are comedy essentials and fortunately Vincent has come more than prepared... this corpulent comic is an utterly welcoming
presence, lacing his blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension' (Metro).
Andre Vincent tour dates
Simon has been described as the 'rampant antipope of satire' by The Stage after his Edinburgh show Zips, Whips And The Bloody Chains Of Christ.'
They may have a point!
'Energetic storytelling and acute observations - Bligh juxtaposes his affable, conversational style with a fearless and animated, high-octane comedy performance' (Red Card Comedy Club)
'A great comedian – in yer face and very funny' (The Gazette And Press)
'A manic wide-eyed crazed funny man' (The Evening Standard).
