Just The Tonic's Saturday Night Comedy: Steve Williams, George Rigden, Adam Bloom, Craig Murray
Please visit www.justthetonic.com/reading-comedy/ for more information.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
More topical than Trevor MacDonald, Steve is one of the tallest guys on the circuit and certainly one of the most original. His Welsh genes allow him to have a totally different aspect on life although he hasn't lost any of the traditional Welsh values, including their fondness for sheep.
He has supported Lee Mack on tour, appeared on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and was nominated for a Chortle Award. Steve never fails to surprise and engage audiences with his hybrid of bizarre stories, larger than life physicality, spontaneous improvisation and skewed view of everyday life.
'Steve Williams has proven his lauders correct and come of age as one of Britain's best stand-up performers... effortless audience interaction, inventive and adaptable use of his material and some of the best natural improvisation you will see at the Fringe this year... an hour filled with a constant torrent of laughter' (Fest).

George Rigden is a Bristol-based musical comedian.
'... the personable, mischievous George Rigden and his interactive style music...' (Funhouse Comedy).
George Rigden tour dates
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
You may recognise Craig from fronting a national advertising campaign for Plusnet Broadband.
A highly sought-after act on the UK comedy circuit and one of comedy's fastest rising stars.
An instant crowd pleaser, Murray's charismatic, mock-confrontational style makes him popular with audiences wherever he gigs. Craig was a Finalist at the Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year 2009.
'Craig Murray knows his comedy roots… his material was well presented and recognisably funny' (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
“Bloody funny” Jo Brand
