Rise Of The Idiots Comedy Club: Pete Johansson, Matt Richardson, Sanderson Jones, Jessica Fostekew, Barry Ferns
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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
After starting comedy in 2009 at 18, Matt has become one of the fastest rising stars in comedy. 2013 saw Matt presenting ITV2's The Xtra Factor and appearing on Celebrity Juice, Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Sweat the Small Stuff and many more, and also touring with his debut national tour.
'Mildly laddish, but self deprecating stories all delivered with an irresistible twinkle...
This (extremely) young stand-up is poised to be the next bright, young sensation on the circuit - expect to hear a lot more of him' (The Guardian)
'Hilarious and charming' (The Daily Mirror).
Matt Richardson tour dates
Jessica has been performing improvised comedy and working as a comedy actress since 2005. In January 2008 she hit the UK stand up circuit like a thunderbolt of joy and was a finalist in the Funny Women's Awards 2010.
She had a very successful one woman show 'Luxury Tramp', which ran at the Brighton Fringe. A review of her show concluded that she is clever, silly and most importantly funny and that she can hold her own with any other stand up, male or female.
'Fostekew is a hugely engaging presence and there's something reassuringly honest about her... Consistently hilarious' (Fest)
'Great fun' (Guardian).
Jessica Fostekew tour dates
Barry Ferns has been writing and performing comedy since he was 17 years old. He won the Glastonbury Festival Comedy competition and reached the semi final of So You Think You're funny.
He was described by Bristol's Venue Magazine as 'sickeningly talented' and by Matt Lucas as 'one of the best new acts I have ever seen'.
'Surreal genius' (Metro)
'So funny someone should call a paramedic' (The Guardian).
