Outside The Box Comedy Club: Chris Martin, Barry Castagnola, Michael Fabbri, Maff Brown
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
His wholly original social commentary, observations and anecdotes are his trade mark. He brings intelligent material as well as simple immature jokes to any room. He enjoys gigging all over the country to any audience, whether he is MC or doing a set. Chris Martin is a keen observer and uses his uniquely twisted logic as he often tackles ‘earth shattering’ problems.
'Hilarious... takes this year's Fringe by the scruff of the neck' (Metro)
'Destined for greatness... he's got charm, anecdotes, callbacks and a worrying father' (The Sunday Times)
'One of the UK's best young observationalists' (The Guardian)
'Charming and good looking... Martin looks to me like a late-stage prototype of the genuine article' (Chortle).

He has been performing stand up round the country and internationally for over four years.

'His blokey charm and willingness to make himself look ridiculous carry him through the trickiest of subject matter' (Edfest)
'Lucid urban storyteller' (Chortle).

Laid-back Londoner Michael Fabbri whose hilarious stories and brilliant writing have made him one of the most highly-rated acts on the circuit.
With a dark and honest approach to some of life's more touchy subjects, he manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh controversial topics to light-hearted silliness to make for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act.
Nominated best club comic Chortle Awards 2012.
'Intelligence in spades... consummate idiot savant' (The List)
'... exceptionally funny... extremely sharp... hugely enjoyable' (The Scotsman)
'An absolutely superb circuit headliner' (London Is Funny)
'Startlingly insightful' (The Guardian)
'Hilarious, Clever, sick and completely unrepeatable' (BBC Online)
'One of the best up-and-coming acts around' (Chortle).
