Just The Tonic Saturday Night Comedy: Glenn Wool, Steve Hall, Adam Bloom, Pete Otway
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Inventive Canadian stand-up Wool certainly cuts a dash on stage with his heavy black eyeliner, long leather coat and distinctive cowboy hat. Already an established comic in the USA with his laid back, confident and edgy style and stunning improvisation. No subject too sensitive, no issue too extreme. He tackles a wide range of subjects from religious fundamentalism to current world politics and does it in such a way that you hardly notice that that is what you are listening to.
'Wincingly funny, it's enough to buckle a bull moose' (Melbourne Age)
'Effortlessly funny wit an affability that other comics can only dream of. You have to go see Glenn Wool' (The Guardian)
'Edgy, imaginative, funny and original... Tipped for greatness' (The Daily Telegraph).

Probably best known as being a third of the We Are Klang sketch group with Greg Davies and Marek Larwood, Steve Hall is a superb stand-up in his own right and has provided support for Russell Howard on three of his sell-out national tours.
Steve has been called a Steve Coogan 'lookalike and soundalike', which makes sense as they are distantly related through a convoluted web of Irish cousins. Hecklers tend to think Steve looks more like Mr Bean. Daily Telegraph Comedy Awards 2003 and BBC Comedy Awards 2003 runner-up.
'The most intelligent stand-up you've never heard of' (GQ)
'His phrasing is joyous and choice of words close to poetic' (Metro)
'Deadpan brilliance' (Time Out)
'Wonderfully misanthropic' (Sunday Times)
''Russell Howard's fine tour support' (The Times)
'A lovely, friendly, thoroughly entertaining show' (Chortle)
'This is stand-up as it should be: snappy and smart, occasionally nasty, and always funny' (The List).

One of the most sought-after acts in the country. Perrier Award Nominee and Polygram Award winner for best stand-up at the Edinburgh Festival. Undoubtedly one of Britain's sharpest comic brains - all this and he doesn't swear.
'He's been one of my favourite stand-ups for about ten years (Ricky Gervais)
'In the premier league of comedy' (The Independent)
'He makes me laugh out loud, I can't wait to see him live' (Sir Ian McKellen)
'Bloom is perhaps the perfect comedian' (The List).
