Adam Bloom was 18 months old when his parents nicknamed him The Voice, and when he was 10, he told them he was going to be a comedian. By the age of 23, he was. Adam has appeared on various stand-up and panel shows on TV, and has recorded three series of his own Radio 4 show, The Problem with Adam Bloom.

Ricky Gervais says: Adam Bloom has been one of his favourite comedians for ten years: ‘…Bloom not only has meticulous, brilliant lines, but also an intense and fragile honesty.’ The Independent describes him as being ‘…in the premier league of comedy,’ and The List says: ‘Bloom is perhaps the perfect comedian.’

He’s also a Time Out Award winner for best stand-up and has been hired to write for numerous TV and radio shows.

Opening the show is the amazing Abi Roberts. Abi and her big hair exploded onto the stand-up comedy scene in 2011, after a number of years as a session vocalist and cabaret performer. She has been dubbed by critics:

'Raucously and incredibly funny' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Fast-paced, high-octane comedy with brilliant routines... entertaining throughout and leaves everybody wanting more' (Giggle Beats)

'Must see comedian who is breaking new ground' (The Independent).

Plus support from Josh Dillon who successfully combines a dry, deadpan demeanor with charismatic warmth. He takes his audience on a rollercoaster journey with his dark stories about life, work and relationships, demonstrating some unique problem solving skills along the way! "Great act with great jokes.

“Josh Dillon is definitely one to watch out for. He had the audience in stitches throughout his dry delivered but very funny & clever set.” Jailhouse Screamers

The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles from Coastal Comedy who are finalists for the ‘Best Night Out’ category of the Bournemouth and Poole Tourism Awards 2018."
