Barrel Of Laughs: John Scott, Will-E Robo, Bennett Arron, Toby Hadoke
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
John started his comedy career in May 1999, and just two months later he was participating in his first fringe of the Edinburgh Festival in 'Stand up Scotland' - a showcase for the best new talent emerging on the Scottish circuit.
Since that time he has gone on to complete five runs in Edinburgh, won the 'Spike Milligan Award' for new talent 2003, and worked as a sketch performer on numerous BBC TV pilots.
'... cheeky, commanding and always oozing charm his hilarious tales of class-based woe never miss the mark and are delivered with killer punch lines...' (Funhouse Comedy).
John Scott tour dates
Energetic, charismatic, versatile and animated are just a few words that describe Will-E Robo’s stand-up routines. He is a universal comedian, overflowing with energy, combining his story-telling abilities with vividly humorous physicality and amazing sound effects that paint clear, hilarious pictures. He has made memorable appearances on P. Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy, in 2005 and 2007 for which he was given the title of P.Diddy’s Number 1 Bad Boy of Comedy.
Will-E tour dates
The only Jewish Welsh comedian on the circuit, Bennett Arron is also a producer, director and writer and has been described as a cross between the paranoid angst of Woody Allen and the colloquial valley humour of Max Boyce.
Also a trained actor, he takes command of the stage and his humour veers between obsessed anxiety and natural occurrences; with his contagious laugh he lights up any room.
'One of the best gagsmiths on the circuit... a Welsh Seinfeld' (The Guardian)
'Genuinely original and funny' (The Times)
'Hilarious... clever wit... razor sharp' (The Standard)
'Wildly talented' (Chortle)
'Had the room creased up' (The Scotsman).
Bennett Arron tour dates
'Toby is an actor, writer and comedian, who has a stupid name that no-one can pronounce or spell. He was born in a small cottage in Ludlow, Shropshire at the turn of the century, and even as a baby, sported a rather manly collection of facial hair.'
Manchester comedy Legend and host of XS Malarkey. Toby was the inaugural winner of The Les Dawson Award, beating a shortlist including Peter Kay, Daniel Kitson, Dave Spikey, Ken Dodd, Caroline Ahearne, Craig Cash and Steve Coogan. He works regularly in TV and Radio having appeared in shows ranging from Coronation Street to Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights.
'Superior stand-up skills – very, very funny' (The Guardian)
