A fantastic evening of live stand-up comedy. Probably the best line-up and best value comedy night in the area. Past performers have included Sarah Millican, Bob Mills, Ivan Brackenbury and the legendary Bobby Davro. Expect more surprises this year.

Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.

Featuring

Daliso Chaponda

Daliso Chaponda appearing at this event

Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars and was a finalist on Britain's Got Talent 2017. He has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticize the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything. He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader. Daliso has appeared at many festivals that have included Melbourne, Edinburgh, Singapore and Cape Town Festivals. He is also a prolific fiction writer and has had his science fiction, murder mysteries and fantasy fiction published in numerous magazines and anthologies. He also co-wrote a play that aired on BBC Radio 4. 'Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended' (BBC) 'A joy to listen to. Provocative, poignant and ultimately hilarious' (The Guardian) 'I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out!' (The List) 'It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his racial and socially insightful comedy' (News and Star, Carlisle) 'Absolutely [took] the roof off the place. Brilliant, brilliant act' (The Frog and Bucket). Daliso Chaponda was #9 in Ents24's Hardest Working Comedians of 2018 list.

Laura Lexx

Laura Lexx appearing at this event

Paramount Funniest Student Runner Up 2009 and Chortle Student Comedy Awards Finalist 2009, Laura Lexx is a uniquely gleeful performer with an easy, chatty style that covers all things from the West Country to the aging process of socks. Performing mainly in London and the South, Lexx is a chirpy addition to any line up. '... the positive and personable Laura Lexx, with her delightfully funny take on things. Happy to discuss anything with the audience her distinctive style is both cheeky and charming' (Funhouse Comedy) 'One of the most delightful performers you're ever likely to see' (GQ Magazine).

Mandy Muden

Mandy Muden appearing at this event

Stand-up comedian and sit-down magician. Described as like 'Alison Steadman playing a beauty consultant doing Tommy Cooper-style magic – but without the fez', Mandy would take that as a compliment. With an act made for the digitally-enhanced age, Mandy has audiences astounded with both the brilliance of some (certainly not all) of her magic and in hysterics at her off-the-cuff one-liners and observations.

Dan Evans

Dan Evans appearing at this event

Excellent comedian from Edinburgh who has appeared frequently on TV. For over a decade Dan’s twisted logic has been gladdening Stand-Up Comedy audiences across the UK and Ireland. He’s also performed his accessible but frequently childish surrealism in front of chubby perspiring ex-pats in Dubai and Oman, and had his grammar rectified by politer crowds in Germany and Holland. 'Original and Inventive' The Times
