Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Stand-up comedian and writer who has worked on a wide range of shows such as the award winning BBC 3 comedy Ideal (where he also played Troy, a mad DJ who
lived in a cupboard).
Tony has also written for wide variety of comedians including Lily Savage, Brian Conley, Steve Coogan and Johnny Vegas.
'Always clever, often hilarious' (The Scotsman)
'A demon set and staggering stage presence...' (The Big Issue).
Tony Burgess tour dates
Comedian, writer and actor from the town of Bexleyheath, South East London.
'Toal's ease of interacting with the audience is a true talent' (Hairline)
'Funny and touching. Winning over his audience with charm, genuine depth of feeling, and free tiny yoghurts, Toal painted an impressive, and at times, disturbing picture of a man on the edge... humour from the heart' (Three Weeks)
'Master of storytelling' (http://www.PunchlineUK.wordpress.com)
'You might find yourself taking a paracetemol to kill the pain in your jawline
'We forget the misery and cold of the outside as the Tom Toal comedy glow warms
us all' (Kate Copstick)
'Touching addition to the Daniel Kitson-esque heart-on-sleeve comedy sub genre' (List).
Tom Toal tour dates
Despite looking like a slightly dishevelled and demented geography lecturer, he is a brilliant comedian. He crackles with childish energy, getting caught in flights of fancy and going off on strange tangents, but never loses sight of the gag. A performer worth the admission price alone.
Edinburgh Fringe Most Promising Act Award-winner, and Citylife Comedian Of The Year 2003.
'leaves his crowd uplifted, entertained and laden with charity shop-bought gifts...Warm, original and weird' (Edinburgh Festival Guide)
'Breathtaking... a surreal performance, he had the audience in the palm of his hand from start to finish' (Evening Chronicle).
Seymour Mace tour dates
This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience. Barry has been on the circuit for five years and has played all across the country, from London to Orkney. This young star is hotly tipped for big things.
'Hugely enjoyable... a ton of great stories... one to watch' (The Guardian)
'Razor sharp humour' (Metro)
'... the appealing and perceptive Barry Dodds' (Funhouse Comedy).
Barry Dodds tour dates
