Specialist Subject is the night where comedians finally get a chance to be funny about the things that really matter to them, whether you've heard of those things or not.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Satirist from the West Country who isn't afraid to take on any subject. Winner of the Perrier Best Newcomer Award at the 2004 Edinburgh Festival. Wil Hodgson is a serial misfit, collector of '80s girl toys and general retro obsessive.
'A brilliantly captivating performer' (The Scotsman).
Wil Hodgson tour dates
After a career in health and social care, Angela Barnes decided to realise a long held ambition and give comedy a go. Within a couple of years she had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition.
'Angela Barnes is a brilliant new comic with an excellent on stage persona. Her acidic tone of delivery and deftly crafted, punchy material make for a very funny set' (Trevor Lock)
'... brilliantly funny' (Sarah Millican)
'... warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes... She's just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic... Like all the best comics, she manages to articulate a singular perspective while making it seem like a universal truth. And then she put jokes in it. Harder than it looks' (The Guardian)
'Angela Barnes is the best mainstream female comedian I've seen since Sarah Millican... I can't be any clearer than that can I?' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'A beautifully paced performance that was aided by the consistent quality of her jokes, many of which showed a great skill with self-deprecation' (Chortle).
Angela Barnes tour dates
After growing up in '80s South-East London and surviving a post-Bush, post-racial, post-Thatcher, post-Twilight Society, Dane realised that it was a moral obligation to chronicle and in some places parody the human experience and contemporary western culture.
Having written and starred in his own sitcom for the BBC (Sunny D) and performed a triumphant run at the Edinburgh Festival, Dane Baptiste is fast becoming regarded as definitely one to watch as his career takes off.
Dane has also established himself as a TV regular with performances on Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC3), Virtually Famous (E4), Celebrity Squares (ITV1), Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular (BBC3) & Live at The Comedy Store (Comedy Central).
'Brilliant' (Comedy Blogedy)
'Intelligent and genuinely hilarious' (Adam Bloom)
'Observational comedy at its finest' (The Independent)
'Baptiste is a comical genius' (http://www.EdFestMag.com)
'A thunderingly charismatic comic' (The Guardian).
