This event has been and gone!
Catch the next one:
Comedy At Milk : Nathan Caton, Charlie Baker, Kai Humphries, Jonathan Elston, Wil Hodgson, Matt Richardson
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly obsevational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride.
'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks)
‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine)
'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle)
'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian)
'A huge star in the near future’ (http://www.one4review.com).
Nathan Caton tour dates
Imagine if Jack Black, Frank Sinatra and Jethro had a son...
'Let's Dance for Comic Relief' winner Charlie Baker brings his incredible mix of jokes, song and dance to the stage. Charlie was a regular on the 2010 series of Richard Bacon's Beer and Pizza Club, starred in The Comedy Store, which aired in January 2011.
The Guardian has described the hyperactive funnyman as 'a superior take on the modern showman' and 'Devon's answer to Frank Sinatra'.
Charlie Baker tour dates
'The moment he comes on stage, Newcastle newbie Kai Humphries blasts into a fine routine. A good half of his brief set revolves around the imaginative idea of a credit-crunch Narnia' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Happy, original and surreal... Caustic, rapid-fire wit... An immensely gifted stand-up' (The Skinny).
Kai Humphries tour dates
Jonathan Elston is a fresh, punchy, gag-driven comic who combines sharp joke writing and quirky observations with a youthful likability that charms his audience and endears him to any room.
However, as with many top comics, success means is Jonathan rarely to be found out of a coach or car. The carbon footprint that Jonathan has created since his career began is big enough to have destroyed a football pitch sized hole in the Brazilian rainforest!
Despite the havoc he is wreaking on the rainforests, Jonathan is steadfast in his focus and continues to be one of the most sought after young acts working the circuit.
'A young comic with incredible talent' (The Guardian).
Jonathan Elston tour dates
Satirist from the West Country who isn't afraid to take on any subject. Winner of the Perrier Best Newcomer Award at the 2004 Edinburgh Festival. Wil Hodgson is a serial misfit, collector of '80s girl toys and general retro obsessive.
'A brilliantly captivating performer' (The Scotsman).
Wil Hodgson tour dates
After starting comedy in 2009 at 18, Matt has become one of the fastest rising stars in comedy. 2013 saw Matt presenting ITV2's The Xtra Factor and appearing on Celebrity Juice, Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Sweat the Small Stuff and many more, and also touring with his debut national tour.
'Mildly laddish, but self deprecating stories all delivered with an irresistible twinkle...
This (extremely) young stand-up is poised to be the next bright, young sensation on the circuit - expect to hear a lot more of him' (The Guardian)
'Hilarious and charming' (The Daily Mirror).
Matt Richardson tour dates
