Please visit www.justthetonic.com/nottingham-comedy for more information.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Troy is a matinee idol born in the wrong era. Homeschooled by his elderly mother for the most part of his life, he has recently emerged blinking into a modern day dystopian present with the naivety of a newborn fawn.
'Undeniably funny' (Chortle.co.uk).
'Intelligent and effective satire ... a character of real comic integrity' **** (BroadwayBaby.com).
Troy Hawke tour dates
2009 So You Think You're Funny finalist and 2013 Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year runner-up.
Rising star Mark Simmons is a consummate one-liner comic. If you love Milton Jones you are likely to adore Mark Simmons. Big hit on the UK circuit and supports some of the bigger names on tour, including Seann Walsh who he co-hosts a movie podcast with. Very clever writing combined with a quirky stage persona.
'To put it simply: if you like Tim Vine, you'll like Mark Simmons, who shares the same love of a tight, silly pun and crushes an admirable quantity into his solo debut, without sacrificing quality' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Clever quips and elegant jokes@ (Standard).

'Smart, polemical and witty observations full of insight and devoid of cliche' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Easily the most assured act on the night – he is clearly going places' (Bruce Dessau, Beyond A Joke)
'A fantastic set of perfectly delivered, perfectly timed and perfectly glorious comedy' (Broadway Baby)
'An epic monologue of first world observations and paranoia. The highlight of the night' (Bournemouth Daily Echo)
'Made me genuinely laugh out loud' (The Brighton Argus).
Phil Jerrod tour dates
Affable quick-witted banter merchant Sam Avery wanted to be a rock star! It nearly happened! Snapped up by music bigwigs at the tender age of 17 and touring with Motorhead and Ice T, he quickly developed a taste for sweat and snakebite.
'A comic you just know is gonna be big' (http://www.Manchestercomedy.com).
