Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Laughter Lounge Award winner Harriet is described by The Guardian as 'definitely one to watch'. 'She’s got funny bones' (Kevin Bridges) 'Exploring the thin line between eccentric and the mental’ is perfect comedy ground for Harriet Dyer, who seems to have lived her entire life on that interface. Her instinctively funny stand-up is packed full of weird and wonderful incidents from her strange life so far – yet however outlandish the tales, they all have an absolute ring of truth' (Steve Bennett, Chortle at the Leicester Comedy Festival) 'A bundle of whimsical hilarity… a breath of fresh air... will have you in stitches' (Broadway Baby) 'Dyer made the audience feel at home and managed to wow the crowd… Loveable and delightful' (Three Weeks).
