History's Greatest Monster: Andrew Watts, David Whitney, Holly Burn, Dan Louw, Henry von Stifle, Mike Shephard
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Extremely distinctive comedy from a former London solicitor.
'Posh and witty... exquisitely funny... one of the new comics making waves' (Time Out)
'His comedy is intelligent and so up-to-date it could be read by Jon Snow' (Cream of
'There's intelligent wit, honesty and more interesting and provocative thoughts in his show than many comics manage in a decade... Andrew Watts is so engaging, so entertaining and so persuasive that we are all sad when his clever, personal and very funny hour comes to an end' (The Scotsman)
'His distinctive style stands out – a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance' (Chortle)
'Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show' (Three Weeks).
Andrew Watts tour dates
Winner of the 2007 Hackney Empire new act of the year and BAFTA winner for Fonejacker. David Whitney's material is a fine blend of political satire and pure filth, making him the thinking person's comic. So long as that person is thinking of something satirically filthy at the time. His posh-accented delivery comes dunked in a tongue-in-cheek laddishness.
'... you can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him' (Reg D Hunter)
'His trajectory is perfect. He squeezes the laughter out of audiences. He is the squeeze person' (Eddie Izzard).
David Whitney tour dates
'... madcap, surreal, downright deranged' (The Independent)
'... one to watch' (Harry Hill)
'Sexy and bonkers, like Twin Peaks' (Eddie Izzard)
'Like a holiday camp run by clowns and deviants... there's plenty of fun to be had' (The Guardian).
