Laugh Till It Hurts: Alistair Barrie, Hal Cruttenden, Terry Alderton, Pete Johansson, Joe Lycett, Stephen Carlin
In aid of Red Nose Day.
Alistair Barrie (MC) "Barrie's analytical nous and store of snappy gags mark him out, Excellent" Independent.
Hal Cruttenden "One thing he needn't worry about is being funny" Scotsman.
Terry Alderton "Terry Alderton is on astonishing form...masterful" Times.
Pete Johansson "Supremely entertaining" Independent.
Stephen Carlin "Ready to become at the very least a cult favourite Among fans of the sharper end of stand-up" Guardian.
Joe Lycett "Rising Talent Joe Lycett already possesses the confidence and relaxed homely charm of an old campaigner" Times.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).
Alistair Barrie tour dates
Host of Live At The Apollo and star of Radio 4, the great Hal is back ranting about the real evils of the modern world - over sharing on social media and the 5:2 diet. The more he complains the funnier he gets.
As seen on The Royal Variety Performance, Would I Lie To You? The Great British Bake Off; An Extra Slice, Live At The Palladium and Have I Got News For You.
'An Absolute joy to watch' (The Scotsman)
'Hugely talented' (The Times).
Hal Cruttenden tour dates
A loose-limbed, physical comedian who has had a rapid rise through the ranks and has been nominated for a Perrier Award. His shows are packed full of riotous exuberance and caricature.
'People keep asking me what is the best Edinburgh Festival show I've seen so far. The answer is simple - Terry Alderton' (The Sun)
'One of the best live shows I've ever seen. He's a f***ing genius!' Frank Skinner
'... effortlessly enjoyable yet excitingly different' (The Times).
Terry Alderton tour dates
Pete Johansson is as sharp, confident and relaxed as you might expect of a top-notch half Canadian, half American comic. A big US favourite after a barnstorming gig at Montreal's bigwig Just For Laughs Festival.
'Johansson is assured, relaxed, open and gently hilarious onstage. This is observational, anecdotal, autobiographical comedy at its best' (The Scotsman)
'Supremely entertaining' (The Independent)
'Laughter fest... Hilarious' (The List)
'Pete's relaxed and insightful performance at the Improv brought the crowd what they had been waiting for all night' (National Post (USA)
'By far the breakout performer this year at Just For Laughs, but more importantly made my list of best jokes of the fest twice!' (The Montreal Gazette, Canada).
Pete Johansson tour dates
Joe Lycett is a hugely talented up-and-coming comedian with an unaffected, relaxed and effortless stage presence. An appealing, engaging and natural performer.
'Imaginative and cheekily subversive comedy... entertainingly mischievous.... An intensely charming and talented young comic' (The Guardian)
'Joe Lycett is one of the strongest emerging comedy talents we've seen in a long time. This young man has a huge future' (Time Out)
'A delightfully natural style that builds a real connection with the audience... an accomplished storyteller' (Chortle)
''Rising talent Joe Lycett already possesses the confidence and relaxed, homely charm of an old campaigner' (The Times)
Joe Lycett tour dates
Stephen Carlin began his stand-up career in 2002 and soon became a permanent fixture on the comedy circuit, supporting Stewart Lee and Stephen Merchant on tour, also appearing in Stewart Lee's 10 Best Stand-ups In the World Ever. Stephen has appeared in Comedy Cuts [ITV] and Edinburgh & Beyond [Paramount Comedy], and has written for Radio shows such as Laura Solon Talking and Not Talking [BBC Radio 4].
'Sharp, slightly offbeat, mainly very funny' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'The whimsy and relaxed on-stage demeanour were a winner instantly... (Carlin) excelled in pedantry, married to exceptional use of language' (Leamington Observer)
'... if this man isn't a household name in five years' time, the world is even more lacking in justice than we could have feared' (The Scotsman)
'... a delightfully off beat act who expertly applies twisted, convoluted logic to common-or-garden observations to produce genuinely original material... a definite tip for the top' (Chortle).
