Off The Rails Comedy Club: Ian Cognito, Sean Meo, Rachel Fairburn, Mick Ferry
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Ian Cognito has been compared to Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks and Gerry Sadowitz. Winner of the Time Out Stand Up Comedy Performance Award 1999. He has been excluded from many venues because of his onstage antics.
Outspoken, opinionated and totally clued up, Ian Cognito's take on the world will have you convinced and convulsed (with laughter) as he spits his darkly humorous vitriol over an unsuspecting crowd.
'If you want to know what's wrong with New Britain, Ian Cognito's going to tell you. And if you don't, you'd better keep your mouth shut. Just stunning' (The Guardian)
'This electrifying, terrifying and ultimately vulnerable performer warmed a cold Glasgow audience to boiling point. Stand up should always be like this' (The List)
'First time I saw Cognito I was blown away. I was blown away the second time too. Third time I thought I could do that' (Reginald D Hunter).

Veteran of Have I Got News For You, Saturday Live, Tarbuck Late and The Clive James Show, Sean Meo is a class act with some of the most intelligent and topical material around.
Smooth, dry and cuttingly funny, Meo swapped a career as a professional snooker player for comedy and quickly established himself as a serious player at the comedy clubs too, securing himself Time Out's Comedian Of The Year Award.
'He can turn out intelligent material with a speed that many other comics can only gasp at' (Time Out)
'Slick, confident patter... can win over the most committed hecklers' (ES Magazine)
'Truly hilarious' (The Scotsman)
'Surreal, sexy... and very, very funny' (Evening Standard)
'The heavenly banter goes on and on the thinking man's comedian' (Deadpan)
'Deliciously sardonic' (The Guardian).
Sean Meo tour dates
'Rachel Fairburn started doing stand up in January 2007, and was a finalist in both the Funny Women and City Life North-West Comedian Of The Year competitions the following year' (Chortle).
'... the bright and creative Rachel Fairburn, who mixes wide-eyed innocence and tales of woefulness with her interest in serial killers!' (Funhouse Comedy).
Rachel Fairburn tour dates
Popular circuit comedian and regular compere for several comedy nights. He is probably best known for his Comedy Store improvisations, but after starting his professional career as a support act for Peter Kay he was soon selling out his own one-man shows, and things look like they are only going to get better for Derker's most famous son.
On TV Mick has starred in BBC1`s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as Comedy Blue and The Comedy Store (both Comedy Central). He made his big screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Looking For Eric – a hit feature film at the Cannes film festival where it was nominated for the prestigious Palm D’Or. A prolific comic, he is a writer on John Bishop’s Britain (BBC1) and has helped make the show a ratings success.
'See him or regret it' (John Bishop)
'Absolute legend, incredibly funny' (Jason Manford)
'Performs with style and conviction... highly enjoyable' (Chortle).
