The Comedy All Stars: Katherine Ryan, Mike Gunn, Jarred Christmas, James Alderson
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
The product of a strict Irish father and a glitzy Canadian 'stage mom', Katherine Ryan won neither friends nor pageant titles growing up. Try as she might to shed her questionable perspectives and super sparkly nature, she's not sure we can ever truly escape our childhood indoctrinations. Katherine puts a hilarious spin on many topics including life as a single mum and gender hypocrisy in a laid-back, funny, and downright honest show.
As well as being a writer-performer Katherine is also a talented actress and played the lead role of George in Victoria Pile's Channel 4 series Campus. Katherine also appeared regularly throughout the second series of Episodes as Merc's Assistant.
'She has perfect timing and enough attitude to stop an elephant in its tracks' (Time Out)
'If only every comedian was as acerbic, smart and downright funny as Katherine Ryan' (Eastern Daily Press)
'This entertaining hour... flies by... all the hallmarks of an increasingly assured comic...' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Warped wit... striking presence... killer lines... calm confidence' (The Scotsman)
'Thoughtful, funny and just twisted enough' (The Times).
Katherine Ryan was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2015.
Katherine Ryan tour dates
Dark and disturbing one-liner comedian, dispensing decrees, decrying disarmingly, and disgorging diatribes on death and drugs, delivered in a deadpan style. In his first Edinburgh Festival Show, he appeared as a funeral director!
He has appeared on numerous TV programmes, including Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), Celebrity Deal or no Deal (CH 4), and Harry Hill’s TV Burp (ITV). He has also been a contributor for The Guardian and written for Time Out, The List and Match of the Day Magazine and was support for Lee Mack on a huge theatre tour.
'One of the 10 leading stand-ups in Britain' (Independent on Sunday).
Mike Gunn tour dates
Kiwi comedian with a good reputation in the comedy world. He has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling, and a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that's thrown his way. This makes his comedy sizzle with originality.
Star of 'Mock The Week' 'Flight Of The Conchords', '8 Out Of 10 Cats' and the Pot Noodle adverts.
'One of the funniest men to pick up a microphone' (Time Out)
'Likeable, intelligent and full of unpredictable energy' (The Scotsman)
'Christmas is robustly funny, his delivery confident and his show not to be missed' (The List, Edinburgh).
Jarred Christmas tour dates
James is a much sought after comic in clubs all over the UK, having appeared at Just The Tonic, Highlight, Jongleurs, Up The Creek, The Glee Club, The Kings Theatre, Comedy Cafe and many, many more.
He was awarded best comedian 2014 by The Guide Awards, Best Comedy Act 2015 by the WOW247 awards and filmed his own Christmas comedy show for Sky in 2016!
"James sets the room alight like a pyromaniac in a fireworks shop!" (Russell Kane).
