Old Rope: Jigsaw, Isy Suttie, Arthur Smith, Robin Ince, Bridget Christie, Tony Law, Stella Graham, Rob Rouse
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Likened to Victoria Wood and Tom Lehrer for her gloriously silly and twisted songs, stand-up and stories. She is also known for her role as Dobby in Channel 4's Peep Show.
Isy is a long-time musical stand-up noted for her joyful outlook. Double British Comedy Award nominee.
'Comedy with heart and soul' (Chortle).
Isy Suttie tour dates
Comedian, compere and playwright. This grumpy old man per excellence presents the BBC Radio 4 show 'Excess Baggage' and has written four plays including 'An Evening With Gary Lineker' and 'Live Bed Show'.
His stand-up topics range from vigorous yodelling to mediaeval literature via death by drink. His delivery is relaxed and sardonic, but his shows are a surprising, dark and witty treat.
He's also one of the many 'Grumpy Old Men' that appear on BBC 2's hit show.
'The funniest and most honest comic of his generation' (The List).
Arthur Smith tour dates
This versatile comedy veteran delivers a highly improvised set which can cover a vast range of subjects and material. As seen on Mock The Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Now Show, The News Quiz and Loose Ends.
Chortle Award Winner 2009 and Winner of the Time Out Outstanding Comedy Achievement Award.
'Robin Ince is thoughtful, provocative and very funny' (The Times)
'When someone writes a history of modern comedy, they should make room for Robin Ince' (The Guardian).
Robin Ince tour dates
Bridget Christie has been a regular on the sketch and stand-up circuit for the last 5 years. She was a finalist in the Funny Women Final 2004, nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2005, won the inaugural Funny Women Best Show Fringe Award 2007 and was nominated for the Chortle Best Breakthrough Act 2009.
Bridget appeared in the second series of The Omid Djalili show on BBC1 and on Andy Zaltman's Radio 4 Series, Andy Zaltzman's History of the Third Millennium Series 1 of 100.
'One of the finest comedians around' (The Independent)
'A superb stand-up with a powerful voice and something to say. It's nothing short of a revelation' (The Observer)
'... another cracking show from the current queen of crusading UK comedy...' ( The Guardian).
Bridget Christie tour dates
Tony is a triple Chortle award winner and was a Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award 2012 nominee. As seen on Have I Got News For You, Buzzcocks, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and more.
'One of the finest and funniest comics on the circuit... destined for comedy stardom' (Time Out)
'Form-busting and hugely enjoyable' (The Times)
'Clever and blithely zany' (The Daily Telegraph)
'To see Tony Law is to inhale deep breaths of comedy oxygen' (The Herald)
'An ever-changing, hard-to-contain, force of nature' (The Guardian)
'A fine celebration of the absurd, full of laughs like no other... a top-notch comic who marries a powerful delivery with some deceptively ingenious material' (Chortle).
Tony Law was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
Tony Law tour dates
Coventry-born Stella Graham is a naturally funny stand-up comedian and writer, with great gags and killer banter. Ballsy, intelligent and inappropriate, no subject is off limits. Charming, and not entirely ladylike, all punchlines connect with a resounding thud.
Stella first hit the stage in New Zealand before returning home to the UK.
Stella has worked on and written for TV and radio.
'If you're a TV executive, drop what you're doing and go see her now' (The Skinny)
'Fun and original... everything a good comedian should be: self-assured, likeable and, crucially, funny' (Broadway Baby).
Stella Graham tour dates
An English comedian known for his hyperactive brand of humour. Since winning Channel Four's prestigious 'So You Think You're Funny' Competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and National circuit, known and loved for his hugely lively, loveable, honest, frank and seriously funny stand up comedy.
'Immensely talented act who demands to be seen. A star of the future... A man with genuinely funny bones’ (The Sunday Times)
'He is a great storyteller... prepared to go to the bleakest and most uncomfortable places... The tears of laughter came in floods’ (The Scotsman)
'Hilarious’ (The List)
'Belly laugh funny' (The Herald)
'Frankly brilliant' (http://www.SuchSmallPortions.com)
'A carefully weighted hour of comedic storytelling' (Fest)
'Missing This show means missing something wonderful' (Edinburgh Evening News).
