Set List: Stand-Up Without a Net: Wil Anderson, Ben Norris, Will Franken, Craig Campbell
A Whose Line Is It Anyway?-style challenge for stand-up comedy!
Comedy pros are handed an original, never-before-seen set list of topics, partially written by the audience. From this they create spontaneous, original stand-up on the spot.
Each new set list is projected onscreen, so the audience follows along and gets inside the minds of comedians to see how each crafts their own particular style of comedy right in the moment of creation.
A playground for the comedy brain!
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
A stand up comedian working in the UK and abroad.
A popular comic/DJ on MTV, Ben has also performed on the BBC's Stand Up Show and They Think It's All Over.
His routines are a breath of fresh air, and highly original - check out his Shakespearian Porn routine...
'Killer gags' (The Scotsman)
'well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics' (Chortle)
'A master of the craft... an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see'
'One of the comedy circuits best improvisers' (The Daily Mirror).
Ben Norris tour dates
American Will Franken is a critically acclaimed satirist and high-speed, quick-change character comedian. Franken’s humour is rooted in the British sketch comedy tradition, notably Monty Python. Onstage, he portrays an eclectic mix of characters through a series of interconnected vignettes. His skits are often satirical, skewering a range of subcultures and political views, often absurdist.
'Strange, sometimes awkward, often funny and always interesting, Franken’s act is
like Marmite – ****ing awesome – and deserves an audience as big as his character roster' (Three Weeks)
'Amidst the anodyne wannabe TV comics who are 40% hair product, 40% ego and 20% talent there is still plenty of the real thing to be found, comedically. Will Franken... is absolutely brilliant. Iron satire in a velvet glove. Clever, creative comedy' (The Scotsman)
'The sharp-clawed satire on US culture and liberal piety, and the constant upending of what it is we think we're watching, make for a unique and compelling hour... You can't take your eyes off these inspired outpourings' (The Guardian)
'Will Franken is an astounding character comedian who makes almost everyone else in his field look like lazy chancers' (Chortle).

Described by some as the Canadian Billy Connolly, Craig never fails to entertain. The wild man of Canadian comedy delivering in style and occasionally making up one third of The Dinks. His unique humour fuses together whimsical anecdotes with salty stories of sex, drugs and circumcision.
However, be warned, his laid-back manner and genuine warmth belie the true
outrageous nature of his material. Still, his stoner philosophy and risque subjects have won him devoted fans worldwide.
'Bringing a tale to life like a young Billy Connolly' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'One of the most skilled storytellers and jokesmiths on the circuit... Craig is simply a very, very funny man' (Chortle).
Craig Campbell tour dates
