The Cutting Edge: Scott Capurro, Paul Thorne, Ben Norris, Sean Meo, Tania Edwards, Steve Gribbin
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 headliner at London's Comedy Store and one of the UK's finest comics. A topical, satirical, musical comedian whose quirky brand of improvisation and finely crafted material have made him one of the UK’s most sought-after stand-ups.
Paul Thorne tour dates
A stand up comedian working in the UK and abroad.
A popular comic/DJ on MTV, Ben has also performed on the BBC's Stand Up Show and They Think It's All Over.
His routines are a breath of fresh air, and highly original - check out his Shakespearian Porn routine...
'Killer gags' (The Scotsman)
'well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics' (Chortle)
'A master of the craft... an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see'
'One of the comedy circuits best improvisers' (The Daily Mirror).
Ben Norris tour dates
Veteran of Have I Got News For You, Saturday Live, Tarbuck Late and The Clive James Show, Sean Meo is a class act with some of the most intelligent and topical material around.
Smooth, dry and cuttingly funny, Meo swapped a career as a professional snooker player for comedy and quickly established himself as a serious player at the comedy clubs too, securing himself Time Out's Comedian Of The Year Award.
'He can turn out intelligent material with a speed that many other comics can only gasp at' (Time Out)
'Slick, confident patter... can win over the most committed hecklers' (ES Magazine)
'Truly hilarious' (The Scotsman)
'Surreal, sexy... and very, very funny' (Evening Standard)
'The heavenly banter goes on and on the thinking man's comedian' (Deadpan)
'Deliciously sardonic' (The Guardian).
Sean Meo tour dates
Comedienne (BBC1, Radio 4) and writer (credits include Stand Up For The Week, Twit of the Year, Channel 4, and Mock the Week, BBC2).
'Genuinely funny jokes combined with personable style of delivery to create just the right atmosphere for some brilliant banter' (Three Weeks)
'Born to perform' (List)
'Very talented' (Time Out)
'Urban sharpster' (Stage).
Tania Edwards tour dates
'The vertically-challenged Scouser with a guitar, savage lyrics and a voice that will break your heart (if not your crockery); topical, incisive, witty and bloody-minded.' (Glee)
His original comedy songs combine razor sharp lyrics with tunes that put their foot in the
door of your mind and refuse to leave. Firmly based in rock 'n' roll and refusing to pull no
punches, these are not the 'oh so witty' ditties of penguin-suited plink plonk piano playing
posh gobs. They are that rarity - comedy songs which are actually funny.
For nine years Steve was the smaller one in the dynamic comedy duo Skint Video, stalwart's of the Edinburgh Festival, appearing on countless television programmes such as Saturday Live, radio such as The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and their own show in 1992/3 Songlines (BBC Radio 1). Skint Video went their different ways in 1993, since when Steve has been storming across the UK and Ireland as a solo artiste.
"A highly refreshing and original comic” (The Scotsman).
“Satirical songs pulled off with real aplomb” (The Independent).
