Slapstick: The Big Comedy Bash: Rob Brydon, Jo Brand, Rory Bremner, Dana Alexander, John Archer, Luke Kempner
All profits from the show will go towards meeting the rising costs of staging the annual Slapstick festival of silent and classic screen comedy – the UK’s biggest celebration of vintage film and TV comedies and their stars.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
This Swansea-born radio and TV presenter got his big break in 2001 with a series of short comedy monologues, 'Marion And Geoff', which were shown on BBC2. This was followed by further TV appearances as Keith Barret, presenter of a spoof chat show and, perhaps most notably, Bryn West in the sitcom 'Gavin & Stacey'.
Rob's career began at Radio Wales at the age of 20 where he narrated many radio shows, adverts and animated films, as well as later appearing on television shows and films. His stand-up shows have been equally successful, with sold out shows around the UK.
His film work includes The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Cinderella and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. In 2017 in London's West End he starred opposite Sir Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller. His other theatre credits include Future Conditional at The Old Vic and A Chorus of Disapproval at The Harold Pinter Theatre.

Uncompromising and head-on comic who will deal with issues that are sexist or sizeist with a razor sharp wit.
'Britain's funniest female comedian in years.'
Jo Brand tour dates
Comedian and impressionist whose accurate mimicry and sharp satire have earned him the acclaim of pundits and the fury of politicians. His large repertoire of characters has sustained a highly successful career in radio and TV spanning 25 years.
Rory Bremner tour dates
The only black female comedian on the circuit in Canada, Dana's comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing her material from her diverse lifestyle, her gay friends and her crazy Jamaican family. Adept, charming and astute, she is warmly funny with an impishly sarcastic sense of humour. This is a lady not to be missed.
