Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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
Young comedian with surreal humour and unique alternative wit. Joey takes you through the tangled joy of his charmingly childlike logic. Creating a magical world of bizarre and hilarious characters and scenarios.

'Absolutely amazing' (XFM).

Comedian, writer and actor from the town of Bexleyheath, South East London.
'Toal's ease of interacting with the audience is a true talent' (Hairline)
'Funny and touching. Winning over his audience with charm, genuine depth of feeling, and free tiny yoghurts, Toal painted an impressive, and at times, disturbing picture of a man on the edge... humour from the heart' (Three Weeks)
'Master of storytelling' (http://www.PunchlineUK.wordpress.com)
'You might find yourself taking a paracetemol to kill the pain in your jawline
'We forget the misery and cold of the outside as the Tom Toal comedy glow warms

'One of the finest comedians around' (The Independent)
'A superb stand-up with a powerful voice and something to say. It's nothing short of a revelation' (The Observer).
