Best In Live Comedy : Dave Fulton, Mark Olver, Lucy Porter, Geoff Norcott
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Whoever it was who decided that Americans don't have any sense of irony, they forgot to tell Dave Fulton. This wry Seattle wag is positively brimming over with ironic invective. With his stringy beard, straggly long hair and rock 'n' roll black leather jacket, Fulton looks more like a refugee from a defunct British heavy metal band than an all-American stand-up... there's a salty flavour to his live club set that you'd scarcely describe as feminist. It's these contradictions that make Fulton so fascinating, and fun to watch, especially when he's riffing with British punters half a world away from home. (The Guide)
Dave Fulton 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
Diminutive stand-up comedian making a big name for herself. Within seconds of appearing on stage, her flirty, gossipy, effervescent style charms everybody! She has written for many top comedians, including Johnny Vaughan, Gail Porter and Griff Rhys Jones, and starred on many TV stand-up comedy shows.
'Fizzing with inventive one-liners... a treat from start to finish' (The Herald)
'Clever, chatty and charming' (Three Weeks)
'Impeccably punch-lined anecdotes of the everyday... genuinely delightful' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously cutting' (The Independent)
'She is like your witty friend who's always brilliant company down the pub. Many stand-ups would give their non-drinking arms to be able to transfer that kind of sparkling bar-room bonhomie to the stage and Porter does it effortlessly' (The Scotsman).
Lucy Porter tour dates
He's half-comedian, half-rapper, half-impressionist. A high energy performer who presents a devastatingly accurate parody of the violently misogynistic attitudes that pervade the rap scene. He faithfully recreates the lyrics and arrogance of the genre, and uses his superb skills of mimicry to drive home the comedy.
'Master of anecdotal storytelling' (The Stage)
'Geoff Norcott is a comedian with a big future ahead of him' (Daily Mirror).
