Neath Comedy Festival: Andrew Watts, Paul James, Mark Hurman
ANDREW WATTS: FEMINISM FOR CHAPS
As seen on 'ITV’s Stand-Up Hero' and Comedy Central’s 'The World Stands Up', Andrew Watts has a distinctive style and very original material.
While the former lawyer turned comedian is undeniably posh, Andrew is so irresistibly likeable he invariably wins a crowd over as he canters through challenging subjects like an apologetic comedy tsunami. He is also famous for once buying lavender from a drug dealer in Brixton!
His previous two Edinburgh Fringe shows were critically acclaimed so his 2014 offering, 'Feminism for Chaps' has been eagerly anticipated. Until recently he did not realise that he is in fact a feminist, so in this show he uses his trademark intelligent wit to explore how chaps like him can change the world for the better.
“An enticing blend of honest storytelling and dark humour” (Independent on Sunday).
“exquisitely funny” (Time Out).
"Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should flock to his show" (Three Weeks).
Show features support by Mark Hurman and is compered by Paul James.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Extremely distinctive comedy from a former London solicitor.
'Posh and witty... exquisitely funny... one of the new comics making waves' (Time Out)
'His comedy is intelligent and so up-to-date it could be read by Jon Snow' (Cream of
'There's intelligent wit, honesty and more interesting and provocative thoughts in his show than many comics manage in a decade... Andrew Watts is so engaging, so entertaining and so persuasive that we are all sad when his clever, personal and very funny hour comes to an end' (The Scotsman)
'His distinctive style stands out – a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance' (Chortle)
'Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show' (Three Weeks).
Andrew Watts tour dates
Welsh stand-up comic, once described as what would happen if Tim Vine hadn't found God.
'Revered as a comedic demi-god ... he has a gritty, down-to-earth accessibility that wins crowds over everywhere' (The Western Mail)
'Not only a consistent barrage of quality lines , but a stage presence that takes the audience wherever he wants to take them' (Cardiff Comedy Festival)
'Paul weaves the dark and dirty into comedy gold. A solid gagsmith who is getting bigger and bigger' (Laughing Mic Comedy).
Paul James tour dates
Mark's humour is wry, observational, occasionally cross (with an optional garnish of political dressing) and will sometimes include literary references. He is degree educated yet remains remarkably foolish and worries a lot.
“If you are craving intelligent, clever comedy with an edge book Mark Hurman now!” Moonrakers Comedy.
