The Thursday Experiment: Robert White, Rick Kiesewetter, Jeremy O'Donnell, Ryan Cull, Edward Aczel, Mike Manera
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Robert tells engaging stories, strong jokes and occasionally performs a bit of musical comedy. Material derives from his unusual life and abstract perspective as he twists his thoughts in a peculiar fashion culminating in always clever, often wordy and sometimes cruel humour.
'Robert White, probably – no definitely – the only asperger, dyslexic, cross lateral,
gay, quarter-Welsh, webbed toed comedian on the circuit' (The Guardian).
Robert White tour dates
An Asian American who was adopted in Japan and raised in New Jersey, USA, Rick has been living and working in the UK since 1993.
'Kiesewetter has plenty of national stereotypes to play on, but he soon steers clear of nationality cliches to deliver punchy observational gags about the little things that annoy everyone' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'... hugely enjoyable hour of comedy (Three Weeks)
'Subversive observations by this UK-based Asian-American comedian...' (The List).
Rick Kiesewetter tour dates
Sharp and surreal observational humour, with a clean, swear-free set. He is a regular compere at several comedy clubs, in and outside the capital. As well as performing both his live stand-up and sketches for television, he writes prolifically for TV and radio.
O'Donnell mixes sharp oneliners with friendly storytelling and sparkling off the cuff wit.
'Lightening fast' (Evening Standard).
Jeremy O'Donnell tour dates
Canadian stand-up comic who settled in the UK in 2010.
He has won the Comedy Store Gong Show and performed on weekend shows for The Comedy Store, Comedy Cafe and Soho Comedy.
'He has the confidence of slickness you would expect from an experienced North American pro... His sharp style is a loyal servant of the punchline, and
almost every sentence ends with a joke' (Chortle).
Ryan Cull tour dates
Edward Aczel began performing stand-up comedy in 2005 at the age of 38. By the end of that year he was the runner-up in both the prestigious BBC New Comedy Awards and in Jimmy Carr's Comedy Idol (which was filmed for the extras on Jimmy Carr's 2005 live DVD).
He is now a regular headliner on the comedy circuit and by 2014 had performed six solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival.
'One of the strangest, and finest, hours of live comedy I'd ever seen' (Zadie Smith, The New Yorker)
'Perhaps Britain's greatest living anti-comedian' (The Guardian)
'Genius anti-comic Aczel is a superb pleasure to watch, and very much a cult in the making' (Time Out).
Edward Aczel tour dates
A charming comedian and frequent MC, MIke is always impeccably attired, punctual and funny. He boasts a very full head of hair, his own teeth and his own material.
'A comedy force' (Time Out)
'If most comedians' jokes were as funny as Manera's real stories, then the world would be a better place' (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman)
'Amazing stage presence' (Chortle)
'As funny as he is clever. And he is very clever' (The Guardian).
Mike Manera tour dates
