'Winner of the prestigious Time Out Award for Best Comedian. Razor sharp tongue, prone to shock but some of the best material on the circuit, excellent comic.' (Glee)
Mandy Knight tour dates
Laid-back Londoner Michael Fabbri whose hilarious stories and brilliant writing have made him one of the most highly-rated acts on the circuit.
With a dark and honest approach to some of life's more touchy subjects, he manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh controversial topics to light-hearted silliness to make for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act.
Nominated best club comic Chortle Awards 2012.
'Intelligence in spades... consummate idiot savant' (The List)
'... exceptionally funny... extremely sharp... hugely enjoyable' (The Scotsman)
'An absolutely superb circuit headliner' (London Is Funny)
'Startlingly insightful' (The Guardian)
'Hilarious, Clever, sick and completely unrepeatable' (BBC Online)
'One of the best up-and-coming acts around' (Chortle).
Michael Fabbri tour dates
'Joe Wells is a skilled jokesmith who threads great gags through intelligent political material that, whilst razor-sharp, is never particularly angry or dark. As the first gross gags open up into smarter, topical ones it's clear that this is a tightly-structured, well thought-out set. Excellent jokes and sly political comment wrapped tightly in a neat parcel which delivers regular, powerful laughs from a delighted audience. He spins new life out of easy targets like bankers and the BNP with some wonderful imagery' (British Comedy Guide)
'Highly original, inspired and suitably different from the rest of the crowd… brilliantly crafted jokes' (Comedy Central).
'A star of the future... some of the most surprising and thought-provoking material coming from any comedian in his early 20s' (The Guardian).
'A real venom in his delivery seemed to communicate that the numerous laughs that he manages to obtain are just positive collateral to the message he is trying to portray' (Broadway Baby).
Joe Wells tour dates
Although hailed as the only blind comic on the stand up circuit, comedian Chris McCausland makes light of it. He usually begins with a crack about the irony of a blind man doing observational comedy and then speeds off into his entertaining and refreshing set, making wry and perceptive comments about the rich and famous, every day life and suchlike. Instantly likeable and definitely memorable.
'Proper stand up, honest straightforward and balls-out funny' (Chortle)
'A must see!' (The Sunday Times)
'Always excellent' (The Times)
'Truly brilliant' (Three Weeks)
'The new face of comedy in the UK' (ITV)
'Shining Light!' (Sunday Express)
'... fabulously funny and a definite highlight' (Leicester Mercury).
