Featuring

Sarah Keyworth

Sarah Keyworth appearing at this event

Originally from Nottingham, Sarah Keyworth is becoming a regular on the London circuit and has supported Stewart Francis on tour. Her material is a mix of honest anecdotal storytelling about her Midlands upbringing, made surreal with the occasional addition of a silly observation. She delivers sharp lines with a cheeky smile and moments of sudden deadpan that leave the audience wanting more.

Addy Van Der Borgh

Addy Van Der Borgh appearing at this event

Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the Stand-up Show on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on Live At The Comedy Store for Comedy Central, Live At Jongleurs and The World Stands Up for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, Brain Candy. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of TV Meltdown for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including the legendary Loose Ends on Radio 4. 'An unassuming comic genius' (Metro) 'Brilliant natural clown' (The Daily Telegraph) '... van der Borgh can reel off cracking gags and compete with the best freestylers such as Ross Noble' (Evening Standard) 'An excellent stand-up with intelligence and wit' (The Guardian)

Tom Stade

Tom Stade appearing at this event

Since coming to the UK, the Canadian has built up a reputation as a popular and highly recommended comedian. He is willing to tackle a huge range of topics, from the obscure to the familiar, from a simple gag to quirky, inventive, rambling anecdotes with unexpected punchlines. Even if he occasionally seems to lose sight of where he's going, at least you know he's taking the audience with him. 'Wonderfully imaginative, original and hilarious' (Rhod Gilbert) 'So cool he could well be the answer to global warming. Gloriously funny silly and smart' (The Scotsman) 'Rock 'n' roll comedian. Absolutely boxfresh; nothing is staid about Stade' (Evening Standard) 'One of the best practitioners of stand-up we've got... stand-up elite' (Chortle) “Huge presence...really knows how to work a room...attitude and energy...properly hilarious, thoroughly enjoyable.” (Mirror) 'Every inch a star... super confidence and charisma. If comedy is the new rock 'n' roll, then Tom Stade is Keith Richards' (Scottish Daily Record). Tom Stade was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians 2017 and 2016.

Andy Askins

Andy Askins appearing at this event

Andy Askins' air of vulnerability and innocent child-like qualities mislead the crowd heightening the impact of his killer lines. With his guitar and his wickedly dry sense of humour he captivates everybody with an eclectic mix of offbeat comical songs and parodies. A talented musician with an appealing voice and cheeky magnetism, he never fails to leave his mark. Dark, dark humour and killer timing. 'An awful lot of charm. Although he looks mild-mannered and studious, he actually packs a wry, cheeky wit. There is, most definitely, something warmly alluring about him. His winning persona goes a long way...between the songs, the charming banter works well' (Chortle).
