Cally Beaton

Cally Beaton appearing at this event

Cally is a natural storyteller full of intelligent, cheeky and punchline-rich material. Single parenthood and a successful transatlantic career delayed her ascent into stand-up, while dating failures ensured it had to happen. Her act is a rollercoaster ride of anecdotes, observations and stuff even your best mate wouldn’t admit to. “Cally Beaton is an exciting and hilarious new talent, definitely one to watch. Sometimes you just know when someone’s got it – and she’s got it.” Time Out

Don Biswas

Don Biswas appearing at this event

Don's unique set combines both razor sharp one-liners, with humour about having Dyspraxia (organization and co-ordination difficulties) and mild traits of Asperger's Syndrome, and the effect it has on people, while coming from a middle class Indian family. Also thrown into the mix are quirky observational, political and topical humour. 'A phenomenal gag teller with an engaging stage persona, Don Biswas shows all the signs of a truly great comic' (Hecklers Comedy Club).
