XS Malarkey : Seymour Mace, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Joe Lycett, Jay Handley, Toby Hadoke
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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.
He was a regular in BBC2's Johnny Vegas sitcom 'Ideal', a former City Life Comedian of the Year and Breakthrough Act at the North West Comedy Awards. Like a truly bizarre hybrid of Harry Hill, Half Man Half Biscuit and Viz comic, Seymour is a teller of extremely tall tales and High Priest of the terrifically twisted one-liner. He was also victorious in the Cup A Soup Comedy Challenge. You may mock such a curiously named title but the prize money was 10 grand.
'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
With a charming stage manner coupled with a deft, quick wit it's easy to see why Nottingham Comedy Festival named Welsh comic Kiri Pritchard-McLean their Breakout Act Of The Year.
'She balances affection with an acute eye for the ridiculous to bring you a stand up set of well delivered, increasingly funny anecdotes... definitely one to watch' (Three Weeks)
'Kiri was by far the funniest and most quick witted, one to look out for in the future' (Leicester Mercury).
Kiri Pritchard-McLean tour dates
Joe Lycett is a hugely talented comedian with an unaffected, relaxed and effortless stage presence. An appealing, engaging and natural performer. His comedy career started off at Manchester University, winning the Chortle Student Comedy Award in 2009.
'Imaginative and cheekily subversive comedy... entertainingly mischievous... An intensely charming and talented young comic' (The Guardian)
'Joe Lycett is one of the strongest emerging comedy talents we've seen in a long time. This young man has a huge future' (Time Out)
'A delightfully natural style that builds a real connection with the audience... an accomplished storyteller... Finds brilliance in what could be merely workaday' (Chortle)
'Rising talent Joe Lycett already possesses the confidence and relaxed, homely charm of an old campaigner' (The Times).
Joe Lycett was named in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians of 2015.
Joe Lycett 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)
'A comedy genius' (Metro).
