Info provided by the Event Organiser
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Noisy, manic and in-your-face comedian from Australia. This foul-mouthed antipodean is known as a masterly exponent of his art, intelligent and hilarious, railing against bigotry without preaching and taking the audience to the edge of their belief systems with his full on comedy routine. Brendon has appeared on The 11 O'clock Show and The Stand Up Show.
'The most jaw-droppingly awkward, painful, yet ultimately rewarding piece of stand-up we've ever seen' (Time Out)
Brendon Burns tour dates
Leicester New Comedian Of The Year 2015 nominee. As heard on BBC Radio 4 (The Now Show, Newsjack, Fresh from the Fringe) and BBC Radio 1Xtra, and as seen on Channel 4, BBC Three and Sky Arts.
Lolly Adefope sets herself apart from others by delivering her sets through the guise of a hapless comedienne called Gemma. Her alter ego is a somewhat self-indulgent 23-year-old from Preston, portrayed as she stumbles her way through her first live stand-up session and botches gags about offices, taxis and superpowers along the way.
'Promising newcomer' (The Independent)
'Tipped by everyone in the comedy industry' (Laugh Out London).
Lolly Adefope tour dates
London-based stand-up comedian who has warmed up for BBC's Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Pointless, supported Glenn Wool on tour and gigged extensively as an opening act and MC.
His innovative and distinctive material never fails to amuse his audiences.
'Highly rated up-and-comer' (The Guardian)
'Original, distinctive and fresh' (Chortle).
Fin Taylor tour dates
Jen Brister is a stand up comic, writer and comedy actor.
'Brister ticks all the boxes – she's confident, energetic and knows how to deliver a line for maximum laughs' (The Scotsman)
'Outrageously funny' (Metro)
'Gorgeously talented' (Tim Arthur, Time Out)
'This is as near perfect stand up as I have seen' (Scotsgay).
Jen Brister tour dates
With an assured stage presence and considered material that comes from a fresh perspective, he already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond his years. He is known for his 'Hate Thy Neighbour' documentary series about the rise of the far right on Viceland TV.
His natural confidence and charm allow him to tread gracefully across more sensitive topics leaving many of his contemporaries behind.
He has won the Comedy Café New act of the Year Competition and the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year award in 2014.
Big things await this natural talent.
