Just The Tonic Saturday Night Comedy: Adam Bloom, Steve Bugeja, Garrett Millerick, Andre Vincent
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
One of the most sought-after acts in the country. Perrier Award Nominee and Polygram Award winner for best stand-up at the Edinburgh Festival. Undoubtedly one of Britain's sharpest comic brains - all this and he doesn't swear.
'He's been one of my favourite stand-ups for about ten years (Ricky Gervais)
'In the premier league of comedy' (The Independent)
'He makes me laugh out loud, I can't wait to see him live' (Sir Ian McKellen)
'Bloom is perhaps the perfect comedian' (The List).
Adam Bloom tour dates
Manchester-based stand-up comedian and comedy writer and winner of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award 2013.
'His social nightmares make for assured comedy, and it's easy to see why the audience listening at home voted him the BBC New Comedy Award winner of 2013. Greater things surely await' (Chortle)
'Very funny boy' (Steve Wright, Radio 2)
'... sparky, charismatic, likeable. Young, but a natural comic. One to watch certainly (London Is Funny)
'Steve has bulletproof stand-up routines' (Steve Bennett, Chortle Editor)
'Very good, balancing physical comedy with witty observations' (Three Weeks)
'Bugeja has an eye for original comic detail that's all his own, he not only mines big laughs from this, but also an unexpected amount of gentle pathos' (The Guardian)
'... the lively and appealing Steve Bugeja who has a gift for matching physical comedy with sharp observations. His somewhat geeky persona is underpinned by his self-deprecating humour...' (Funhouse Comedy).
Steve Bugeja tour dates
Garrett Millerick is a London based writer, director and comedian.
A regular on the stand up circuit, Garrett can be seen up and down the country in a variety of guises but mostly as himself, saying what he thinks about things in pubs/ theatres/regional art centres and the occasional music festival. He can be seen performing regularly at The Schadenfreude Cabaret in North London where he is the resident compere.
'Millerick is a belter of a new comedian, well worth shouting about' (The Stage)
'... avoided cliche and made contentious points convincingly, though all in the name of a laugh rather than setting out any serious manifesto... Storytelling is clearly in Millerick's genome...a solidly enjoyable way to see out the midnight hour' (Chortle).
'Undeniably honest and hilarious' (Three Weeks).
Garrett Millerick tour dates
After cutting his teeth performing on the pavements of the world and winning the Time Out Street Performer Of The Year Award 1987, he transferred his skills to stand-up. He toured mainly in the USA and Canada, including a support slot for Bob Hope, before returning to his native London in 1994. Over five years on the circuit in this country have seen him rise to one of the most widely respected performers doing the rounds.
'He always gets people laughing through his accomplished stand-up skills, evident in his scalpel-sharp ad-libs and outstanding one-liners' (Chortle)
'Aside from his ability to sustain a single narrative for a full hour, with thought-provoking originality and biting humour, Vincent also uses video to deliver one of the most disarming punch lines you're ever likely to see on the Fringe' (The Scotsman)
'An improvising comedy genius' (The Guardian)
'He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business' (The Times)
'Ferociously funny' (The Sunday Times)
'Honesty and truth (and funny lines) are comedy essentials and fortunately Vincent has come more than prepared... this corpulent comic is an utterly welcoming
presence, lacing his blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension' (Metro).
