Mic, Bike 'n' Hike Macmillan Cancer Comedy Extravaganza: Katherine Ryan, Jarred Christmas, Carl Donnelly, Romesh Ranganathan, Joel Dommett
From 20th July 16 comedians will be walking (and some cycling a longer route) from BT Tower in London to Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth.
It'll take them 4 days, and every night they will be doing a show. London on Sunday night, Guildford on Monday night, Petersfield on Tuesday night, and all culminating in this MASSIVE show on Wednesday night!
No other comedy show will be like this one!
16 comedians, including 5 famous TV names, and numerous other professional well known comedians, including the recently crowned Scottish Comedian of the Year, and many comedians who will also be big TV names in the next few years!
They'll be nursing aching joints, blisters, sprains, and strains, but all to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
The product of a strict Irish father and a glitzy Canadian 'stage mom', Katherine Ryan won neither friends nor pageant titles growing up. Try as she might to shed her questionable perspectives and super sparkly nature, she's not sure we can ever truly escape our childhood indoctrinations. Katherine puts a hilarious spin on many topics including life as a single mum and gender hypocrisy in a laid-back, funny, and downright honest show.
As well as being a writer-performer Katherine is also a talented actress and played the lead role of George in Victoria Pile's Channel 4 series Campus. Katherine also appeared regularly throughout the second series of Episodes as Merc's Assistant.

'If only every comedian was as acerbic, smart and downright funny as Katherine Ryan' (Eastern Daily Press)
'This entertaining hour... flies by... all the hallmarks of an increasingly assured comic...' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Warped wit... striking presence... killer lines... calm confidence' (The Scotsman)
'Thoughtful, funny and just twisted enough' (The Times).
Katherine Ryan was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2015.

Kiwi comedian with a good reputation in the comedy world. He has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling, and a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that's thrown his way. This makes his comedy sizzle with originality.
Star of 'Mock The Week' 'Flight Of The Conchords', '8 Out Of 10 Cats' and the Pot Noodle adverts.
'One of the funniest men to pick up a microphone' (Time Out)
'Likeable, intelligent and full of unpredictable energy' (The Scotsman)
'Christmas is robustly funny, his delivery confident and his show not to be missed' (The List, Edinburgh).

Carl started performing stand-up regularly in the early part of 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new comics climbing the comedy ladder.
His confident, conversational style and childish sense of humour has seen him become a regular at clubs all over the country including various universities as part of the Avalon Comedy Network. He won the 2007 Chortle Award for the best newcomer and the 2007 Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year Award.

He has forged a fearsome reputation with a set that combines cutting one liners with an acerbic take on the world around him.
'Extraordinarily hilarious' (Three Weeks)
'Plenty to enjoy in his ultra sardonic set' (Chortle)
