Joke Thieves: Milo McCabe, Alfie Brown, Pat Cahill, Acts to be Announced, Will Mars
A show where established comedians perform a set before the audience decides who steals material from who. Will they copy the material completely or take it in their own direction? Will it be a car crash or could it go down better than the original? Nothing is certain except the fun in finding out.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Stand-up and character comedian whose creations include Tyson Moon, the tragic son of a 1970s mainstream comedian, rough-and-ready Grimsby Scrabble champion Q10, his most 'famous' character Philberto, the Portuguese reality TV show winner and Troy Hawke, an RP speaking, cravat wearing 1940s dandy who is on an admirable mission to change the world - a lovable fool with a dash of sophistication.
'Near on perfection' (New Current)
'Undeniably funny' (Chortle)

Milo McCabe tour dates
Alfie’s firebrand style of comedy has been forged from years of pushing boundaries and experimentation.
Natural stage presence combined with explosive material makes for a thrilling performance every time he hits the stage.
Constantly evolving and striving for ways to innovate, Alfie can move from hour-long idea driven shows to tight sets in various clubs effortlessly.
His material touches on introspective thoughts and considerations of the human condition as well as broader observations on social-political issues. All done in an accessible and hilarious way.
An assertive, acerbic and compelling voice, Alfie has garnered critical acclaim throughout his career and continues to grow a fan base here and throughout Europe. With the benefit of being a young act with years of experience the future is bright for this phenomenal talent.
Alfie Brown tour dates
Winner of the amused Moose New Act of the Year 2011.
'Combining off-beat jokes with songs about dying pets and choice fatigue, Cahill’s unpretentiously surreal and absurd outlook has seen him win numerous awards and secured him firmly in the one to watch category' (PBJ)
'This quirky performer has true star quality and bags of originality, mixing physical humour, gimmicks, wordplay and comedy songs. Imagine a cross between Sean Lock and Eddie Izzard and you might be getting somewhere, but nowhere close’ (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'... Wonderfully weird’ (The Guardian).
Pat Cahill tour dates
Brilliantly self-deprecating stand-up, Will Mars, is fast making a name for himself as a down-at-heel, yet lovable international star.
