Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Carey Marx's wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.
Formerly in double-act 'Kez and Jodi', a comedy illusion act. Live wire, Canadian comedy magician. Winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival 2009, he blends dark humour with a mischievous, gleeful delivery,
'Marx's slick delivery lends itself to clever verbal comedy, while his flexible features can switch in an instant from cheeky schoolboy grin to menacing stare' (The Scotsman)
'Hilariously demented' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'Excellent' (The Guardian)
'He is a masterful stylist, gracefully switching from surrealism to sardonic irony' (Skinny Fest)
'Anecdotally debauched... But if his lines are frequently sick, they're elegantly written, too, and there's a childlike glee to his naughtiness' (The Herald)
'A darkly comic Quentin Tarantino' (Chortle)
'Opium for the people' (Broadway Baby)
'supremely crafted comedy' (The List).
Carey Marx 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
A relative newcomer who has the material and confidence of a full time comic. He has a lovely style in his delivery - pacy, upbeat and infectious - that makes the audience warm to him. Set pieces such as his Bollywood and Nollywood reconstruction capitalise on that energy well.
Prince Abdi tour dates
Eddy Brimson is one of the UK circuit's most in demand headline acts and works regularly with leading clubs both in this country and overseas.
Having made many TV appearances including Eastenders, Absolutely Fabulous, The Thin Blue and Casualty, he has also featured in TV adverts such as Snickers and Bacardi Breezer.
'The crowd love him' (The Guardian)
'... one of the most fascinating comedians on the circuit...' (Funhouse Comedy)
'There must be a school of comedy in the British Isles, if such a school exists, Eddy
Brimson would have been top of the class' (Sydney Sunday Herald).
