Never miss another 'Marcus Brigstocke' show
Boom-Tish! Edinburgh Previews : Marcus Brigstocke, Patrick Monahan, Nish Kumar
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Marcus began his comedy career in Bristol whilst studying drama at University and soon won the BBC New Comedian of 1996 at the Edinburgh Festival. He is now regarded as a major comedy, writing and acting talent, performing stand up nationally to sell out audiences both on tour and on the well trodden comedy circuit. The master of satirical comedy, Marcus has proved to be blisteringly funny over a wide range of topics.
'If you haven't seen him live, then you haven't seen him at his very best' (The Daily Mirror)
'Rare is the stand-up show that makes you laugh, think and then fight back the tears. This is it' (The Daily Telegraph).

Winner of ITV's Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesbrough comic is a rising star on the comedy circuit. Full of an insatiable lust for life, his exuberant comedy greets the audience like a sex-starved spaniel would greet a trouser leg.
In 2012 he took part in Let’s Dance for Sports Relief on BBC, won Best Newcomer at the Loaded LAFTA Awards and Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award for his hit show ‘Hug Me I Feel Good’. He played the role of the dastardly Captain Hook in ‘The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan’ at the Worthing Pavilion from December 2016 to early Jan 2017.
A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd...!)
'High energy and conviction, his material is great; he's going to go far' (The Sunday Times)
'Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen' (Daily Mail)
'Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous' (Three Weeks)
'The same mix of control and on-stage charisma as a young Alan Davies' (The Herald)
'Monahan is a supremely engaging performer, adored by his audiences and capable of some terrific comedy' (The Scotsman).
Patrick Monahan was placed in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians 2017 and 2016.

Rapid rising comedian and panel show regular who has hosted BBC Radio 4 Extra's topical comedy show Newsjack and hosts The Mash Report (BBC Two) with comics Ellie Taylor, Steve N Allen, Jason Forbes, Tom Neenan and Rachel Parris.
'The affable comic expertly blends comedy and commentary in a routine that snipes unpityingly at Britain’s political class' (The Guardian).
'Impressive and accomplished... full of confidently delivered, wryly witty tales that delight in the quirks and possibilities of language' (The Scotsman)
'A comedian on the up... An ingenious, witty look at identity that suggests Kumar will soon be getting known for all the right reasons' (The Times)
Nish Kumar was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
