Rob Deering appearing at this event

Rob Deering performs stand-up comedy with music, using a guitar, a loop pedal and his voice to create impressive rock and pop soundscapes – and do jokes, of course. Along with being one of the most in-demand headliners on the UK circuit, he’s toured nationally and performed solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe many times since starting out in comedy in the year 2000. His late-night, live-music pop quiz Beat This is a festival institution. Winner of the Amused Moose Award 2001. 'With his easy charm, chessy singing voice, razor-sharp wit and clownish physicality Rob has quickly established himself as a firm favourite on the comedy circuit around Britain' (Pontardawe Arts Centre0 'Truly wonderful stand-up' (The Sunday Times). 'As sharp and versatile as a Swiss Army Knife' (The Independent). 'Bruisingly hilarious... brilliant musical comedian' (Time Out).

Mike Newall

Mike Newall appearing at this event

Deadpan comedian who has been likened to Liam Gallagher 'with wit. And a vocabulary'. 'His laid back delivery almost insinuates a disinterest in the proceedings, but his timing is pin sharp, his control is deft and his hair is immaculate' (The Scotsman) 'Mike Newall's style is quiet, thoughtful and casual. The material is excellently timed, deceptively clever and very funny' (City Life).

Quincy

Quincy appearing at this event

Combining stories from his formative years in the East End of London with tales from his Caribbean cultural heritage, Quincy mixes both worlds to great comedic effect. The award-winning comedian has appeared on Comedy Central's 'Comedy Blue' and BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC New Comedy Awards Finalist, MTV's Kojo;s Comedy Funhouse and BBC R4 Extra's Comedy On The Boat. Quincy is regarded as one of the best of a new wave of comics to come out of the UK, with a regular turnover of material and a stage presence second to none - that has put him among the most well respected comics on the scene.

He endeared himself to the audience and left the stage to a loud round of applause' (Grahame Limmer, Bearcat Comedy Club).
