Versatile Australian Celia Pacquola began her stand-up career in 2006 and quickly cemented her place as an award winning, and internationally recognised, comedian with regular 4-star reviews, awards and nominations for her performances at comedy festivals around the world.
'Endlessly charming, furiously honest and beautifully written stand-up from the Aussie' (The Independent)
'Celia Pacquola is Adam Hills with ovaries, using her magnetic charisma to draw audiences in to a warmly uplifting show that's as inspiring as it is hilarious. I'd defy anyone not to leave... just a little more in love with life – and with her – than before' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk).

'His comedy is intelligent and so up-to-date it could be read by Jon Snow' (Cream of
'There's intelligent wit, honesty and more interesting and provocative thoughts in his show than many comics manage in a decade... Andrew Watts is so engaging, so entertaining and so persuasive that we are all sad when his clever, personal and very funny hour comes to an end' (The Scotsman)
'His distinctive style stands out – a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance' (Chortle)
'Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show' (Three Weeks).
Andrew Watts tour dates
