The Best In Stand Up: Scott Capurro, Steve Shanyaski, Christian Reilly, Jen Brister, John Fothergill
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
This San Franciscan comedian has become a favourite on the UK circuit in the last few years, a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe and has appeared in several films such as 'Mrs Doubtfire'.
He delivers brutally honest, funny descriptions of life as a gay man in an all American family. Not for the delicate!
'... enthralling... electric... deliciously catty' (The Guardian).
Scott Capurro tour dates
A laid back, silly and utterly charismatic comedian. His shows combine surreal tales with cleverly crafted songs. Steve has a gift for creating immersive performances from acute observations.
'Absolutely stormed it' (Daily Mail)..
Steve Shanyaski tour dates
Now a solo headline act all over the globe, Christian uses his improvisations, sharp wit, youthful energy, guitar skills and vocal mimicry to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians with his charming onstage confidence machine-gunning impossibly catchy tunes with hysterical lyrical content. His solo Edinburgh Festival Show, ‘Lost In Music’ was sold out, critically acclaimed and was the winner of the 'Spirit Of The Fringe' Award.
In 1999 Christian started playing guitar and singing for the American comic polymath Rich Hall. High points included winning the Perrier Award in 2001 for "Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw", being on subsequent CD and DVD releases, seeing the world, appearing on stage with Seinfeld star Michael Richards and getting on Late Night with Conan O' Brien.
He was a regular on a BBC radio show with the Richard Herring, called That Was Then, This Is Now that was critically acclaimed
and lasted for 3 series. This led to a key role in Herring’s groundbreaking podcast, As It Occurs To Me which ran for three years and won a Chortle award for best internet comedy and appearances on Radio 2’s ‘Jammin’.
'So much biblical gusto and zest it is impossible not to be possessed by his optimistic persona' (Broadway Baby).
'If you’re a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you’re probably a Christian Reilly fan already' (The Guardian).
