Fosters Comedy Live: Andy Wilkinson (aka Smug Roberts), JoJo Sutherland, Benjamin Crellin, Keith Farnan, Ahir Shah
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Also known by his stage name Smug Roberts, Andy is one of Manchester's finest comedians and actors.
As seen in 'Phoenix Nights', 'That Peter Kay Thing', 'Mrs Brown's Boys', 'Cold Feet' and the Ken Loach film 'Looking For Eric' Described by Metro as 'an act everyone deserves to see at least once', Smug is a venerated veteran of the British comedy circuit.
He is a headline act all over the U.K and is regarded as something of a cult hero in his native Manchester and is a man with
genuinely funny bones, able to provoke peals of laughter from a quirky colloquialism or a nonplussed expression, but it is the sheer imagination of his storytelling where he really shines.
Anecdotes from his home life as a cuckolded house husband with two teenage kids on hormonal rampage are laced with brilliant punchlines and surreal tangents, including the welcome appearance of a talking dog. He’s also had a minor chart hit with ‘Meat Pie Sausage Roll’ a song that began its life as a comedy routine by Smug on local radio and made it to the heady heights of number 67 in June 1998. Quite the Renaissance man.
In 1995, he tried stand-up comedy for the first time at the Frog and Bucket comedy club, adopting the stage name "Smug Roberts"; the "smug" came from an event in his life where people teased him for being a "smug bastard" and the "Roberts" was adapted from his middle name.
'A comedy maestro... the pace, emphasis and rhythm of his delivery is impeccable. A rock solid act guaranteed to entertain' (City Life).

audience could have watched all night' (The Herald)
'Outclassed her colleagues' (Evening News).
JoJo Sutherland tour dates
Benjamin Crellin is an internationally respected stand-up comedian. His stand-up combines kiwi staunchness with fun and mischief to deliver slick one liners and intelligent observations that explore everything from religion and race through to conflict and sexuality. "Like a cross between Lenny Bruce and Dennis Leary with an angry smart guy vibe that is all his own” - The Times (Canada).
Benjamin Crellin tour dates
A former solicitor, Keith has the natural ability to delve into themes other comics may shy away from and it is this aptitude that is placing him in the lead of investigative comedians. He has been a regular guest on radio, both in Ireland and the UK, from BBC, RTE, Talk Sport, Today FM, Newstalk and all sorts of other warm and welcoming studios.
Keith Farnan has performed as a stand-up all over the world, from Montreal, to Amsterdam, to Hong Kong.
His television credits include BBC3's Most Annoying People, One Night Stand (BBC), Liffey Laughs (RTE) and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC1).
He has also written for and performed in The Insomniac Club for BBC Radio as well as appearing on Loose Ends and Colin Murphy's Great Unanswered Questions (BBCNI).
'... If Eddie Izzard had been Irish, he'd surely have turned out a lot like Keith Farnan' (The Scotsman)
'Brilliant, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny' (Time Out).
Keith Farnan tour dates
Ahir Shah is one of comedy's brightest new talents, whose sharp brand of stand-up features a blend of socio-political awareness, energetic delivery and jokes.
'Destined to be one of the brightest stars in the British comedy firmament... a frighteningly intelligent gagsmith' (The Scotsman)
'An intense, exciting performer whose act crackles with wit, his energy holding the audience captive until lights out' (FringeGuru)
'A sophisticated comedian with an elegant, eloquent style that probes beyond the superficial' (Chortle)
