Stagefright Comedy Christmas Special: Seymour Mace, Kai Humphries, Jonathan Pelham, Eddie French, Anthony J Brown
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
'The moment he comes on stage, Newcastle newbie Kai Humphries blasts into a fine routine. A good half of his brief set revolves around the imaginative idea of a credit-crunch Narnia' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Happy, original and surreal... Caustic, rapid-fire wit... An immensely gifted stand-up' (The Skinny).
Kai Humphries tour dates
Runner up in both So You Think You're Funny and the Chortle Student Comedy Awards.
'The laughs are explosive' (Chortle).
Jonathan Pelham tour dates
Clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that's slammed it's claw in a coffin lid.
And not the merest hint of profanity.
The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface.
Jongleurs / Metro Stand And Deliver Award winner and former BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up, he is a regular contributor to Radio 2's The Arthur Smith Lectures.
As seen on The Stand Up Show and Phoenix Nights.
'Dark quips and relentlessly witty audience-goading ad-libbing from a compelling host' (City Life)
'Hilarious ad-libs and wicked one-liners from an infectiously funny performer (The List).
Anthony J Brown tour dates
