Just The Tonic's Saturday Night Comedy: Adam Bloom, Leo Kearse, Junior Simpson, 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
Scottish stand up comedian based in London, Leo Kearse started his comedy career in 2009. He is one of a new wave of British acts who draw on the heritage of US acts such as Chris Rock, Sam Kinison and Bill Burr to deliver powerful, rhetorical, personal comedy taking in big issues. In 2015 he won the UK Pun Championships but he is best known on the circuit for his hilarious stories about being Scottish, dating, buying a train ticket and Thai toilets!
'Kearse is seriously good. Quick, funny, smart and to the point... hilarious' (The Scotsman).

Luton's lapsed choir boy, and one of the funniest people in British comedy, dubbed the new Lenny Henry, he has a string of TV credits including Never Mind The Buzzcocks and In The Dark With Junior Simpson. A TV and film favourite...remember the wedding DJ in Love Actually?
A true observational comic Simpson finds his humour in the everyday and humdrum with anecdotes of his world travels as a comedian adding a personal originality to his set.
'A favourite on the stand-up circuit, TV and radio' (BBC)
'Watch that man!' (The Guardian).
Junior Simpson 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).
