The Perrier Award winner has had huge success as both a writer and performer. He received a BAFTA and a Bronze Rose of Montreux for his Channel 4 sitcom Black Books. His film career has included the smash hit Rom-Com-Zom Shaun Of The Dead, Run Fat Boy Run and A Film With Me In It. His stand up shows have sold out across the world. Throughout the US, Europe and Australasia Monster, Like Totally and What It Is have cemented this unkempt wordsmith's reputation as one of the foremost comics of his generation earning him the label of 'The Oscar Wilde of Comedy'. 'Jokes as sharp as barbed wire and a comedy brain quicker than a steel trap... Rarely have the rafters of the Playhouse shook so dangerously to the sound of laughter' (The Scotsman) 'A supremely confident performer, his timing for delivering punchlines is something special' (The Daily Telegraph) 'It didn't falter for a moment. This is stand-up comedy of the first order... there's scarcely a word wasted... seriously good fun' (The Times).

A former member of the Cambridge Footlights, he first came to the Fringe with the 2001 Edinburgh show Far Too Happy, which also starred Mark Watson and was nominated for the Perrier award for best newcomer. He also featured in Alex Horne's best-newcomer nominated Making Fish Laugh in 2003, and is part of the four-man sketch troupe Cowards. His solo Edinburgh debut came in 2004, with the tragic one-man comedy play Luke & Stella, which was made into a Radio 4 series called All Bar Luke. 'This is one art house form-buster who can really give you a good time' (Times) 'In any other sphere apart from comedy, we'd probably class this way of looking at the world as certifiable. Here it feels like genius' (The Daily Telegraph) 'As daring and innovative as it is ridiculously funny... He's a genius, plain and simple' (Time Out).

Former comedy reviewer Fern Brady first tried stand-up after the magazine she worked for suggested she write an article where she 'faked it' as a comedian. She enjoyed it so much that one year on, she embarked on it as a career. She quit her day job working with male ex convicts after Stewart Lee plucked her from obscurity and put her on The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central). Since then she has performed stand up on a number of TV shows including 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular (BBC3), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and The One Show (BBC1). Based in London, she has had two sold out critically acclaimed runs at the Fringe with her solo shows “People Are Idiots” (2015) and “Male Comedienne” (2016). 'A great comic sensibility, with moments of sparkling verve' (The Guardian) 'Crackles with fire, has beautiful timing, perfectly pitched delivery and great gags to boot... has the air about her of a woman going places' (The Scotsman).
