Big Value Thursday: Ava Vidal, Iain Stirling, Rob Coleman, Roger Monkhouse, Mark Olver
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Ava's always felt out of place: at public school, as a prison officer and a struggling teenage single mum. Luckily, the 'rising star' (Guardian) of C4's Kings Of Comedy and BBC2's The Sack Race can laugh at her misfortunes.
'Funny, witty and engaging, this is a comedian worth watching' (Three Weeks)
'Confident, commanding, yet low-key, she exudes a cool authority' (Chortle)
'Well-structured, well written and skilfully delivered' (The Scotsman)
'Stand-up with a harsh, dark edge, a refreshing change from all the feelgood cr*p' (Melbourne Age).
Ava Vidal tour dates
Finalist, Scottish Comedian Of The Year 2008 and Best Newcomer Chortle Nominee 2011.
'An innate sense of timing, with perfect pace and phrasing' (Chortle)
'One of the best joke writers on the circuit' (GQ).
Iain Stirling tour dates
A comedian delivering beautifully crafted gags that range from the dark to the ridiculous.
'... the clever and funny Rob Coleman, whose material ranges from the sinister to the ridiculous' (Funhouse Comedy Club).
Rob Coleman tour dates
'Skinhead, intellectual, and specialist compere, Roger Monkhouse employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience' (Glee)
'His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind' (The Guardian)
'Pulls punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air... Saucy - and uncompromisingly so -
sometimes topical, sometimes punny, sometimes clever, sometimes daft... There is, in short, something in this varied comedy menu for every taste... A gifted natural... One of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit' (Chortle)
'... one of the most experienced acts in the business. His deadpan style and quick wit make him one of the best acts out there, and he is a regular fixture at top venues all over the country, as well as performing extensively throughout the rest of the world' (Funhouse Comedy).
Roger Monkhouse tour dates
Stand up comedian and compere at Jester Club and Bristol Comedy Pub. A highly popular comic and TV warm-up artist, having done 3 Edinburgh shows and headlined and compered for all the top clubs in the UK. Olver's Diary Of A Serial Killer won the Best New Show award at Leicester Comedy Festival.
'Olver has a great story to tell' (The List)
'Cheerful and funny' (The Guardian)
'Educational, entertaining, intimate and expertly marshalled by Olver, this is highly
recommended for comedy fans and essential viewing for aspiring comics' (The (Skinny)
'This was one of the most entertaining hours I've had at the Fringe. The guests on this occasion weren't under pressure to perform, but responded to Olver's pertinent and flowing questions with a surprising honesty. Fascinating for aspiring comics and enthusiastic fans alike' (Three Weeks) .
Mark Olver tour dates
