Crack Comedy Presents Political Comedy: Erich McElroy, Steve N Allen, Joe Wells, Andy Zaltzman
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
After moving to the UK from Seattle in 2000, Erich joined local ranks and became a British citizen in 2007. Originally from Seattle, he has been gigging regularly on the London and UK circuit. In 2006 he was part of the two-man show Brokeback Britain which received a Total Fringe Sellout Award. On the circuit Erich is highly regarded for his humorous, and insightful, take on living in the UK.
'Masterful' (Broadway Baby)
'... hilariously insightful... smart, sharp, endearing comic' (The List)
'Brilliant observation' (chortle).
Erich McElroy tour dates
Comedian, presenter and writer Steve N Allen has a natural stage presence that connects with a crowd. From relatable anecdotes to topical commentary, Steve uses his material to build rapport with the audience, so understandably Steve gets much work as a compere or opening act, leaving the room with a warm energy.
'... humorous and chatty' (Funhouse Comedy CLub).
Steve N Allen tour dates
'Joe Wells is a skilled jokesmith who threads great gags through intelligent political material that, whilst razor-sharp, is never particularly angry or dark. As the first gross gags open up into smarter, topical ones it's clear that this is a tightly-structured, well thought-out set. Excellent jokes and sly political comment wrapped tightly in a neat parcel which delivers regular, powerful laughs from a delighted audience. He spins new life out of easy targets like bankers and the BNP with some wonderful imagery' (British Comedy Guide)
'Highly original, inspired and suitably different from the rest of the crowd… brilliantly crafted jokes' (Comedy Central)
'A star of the future... some of the most surprising and thought-provoking material coming from any comedian in his early 20s' (The Guardian)
'A real venom in his delivery seemed to communicate that the numerous laughs that he manages to obtain are just positive collateral to the message he is trying to portray' (Broadway Baby).
Joe Wells tour dates
Andy Zaltzman delivers his clued-up political comedy with surreal similes and often punchlines of pure silliness and has become an Edinburgh Festival staple. He writes a regular cricket blog for Cricinfo and co-presents The Bugle, a weekly satirical podcast for TimesOnline with John Oliver.
'A purveyor of subtle but excellent political satire' (Julian Hall, The Independent)
'... a masterful comedian, running through a variety of original material with ease and intelligence… his blend of intellect and comic timing make him a must-see at the Fringe this year' (Katy King, Three Weeks)
'Probably the best satirical comic we’ve produced in the last two decades. Intelligent, biting and silly' (Time Out)
'Political comedy at its best' (Sunday Times).
