Jo Caulfield

Jo Caulfield appearing at this event

Graham Norton's writer and warm-up artiste, co-founder of the 'Hampstead Clinic' comedy club. She is regular performer at the Comedy Store and on The Stand Up Show. Jo is a regular guest on both Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You. Other TV appearances include The John Bishop Show, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saturday Night Live, The Stand Up Show. Dubbed 'funniest woman in Britain', she lives up to the title with razor-sharp wit, acerbic observations and scandalous one-liners, all excellently written and impeccably delivered. 'Cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue...Sharp-witted, urban comedy that goes down a treat. Like a sociology textbook, but with jokes' (The Times). 'Incapable of doing a bad show, so sharp is her tongue and so in tandem is it with her mischievous mind' (The Scotsman). 'Feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy... one of the finest female comics' (The Observer).

Christian Reilly

Christian Reilly appearing at this event

Now a solo headline act all over the globe, Christian uses his improvisations, sharp wit, youthful energy, guitar skills and vocal mimicry to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians with his charming onstage confidence machine-gunning impossibly catchy tunes with hysterical lyrical content. His solo Edinburgh Festival Show, ‘Lost In Music’ was sold out, critically acclaimed and was the winner of the 'Spirit Of The Fringe' Award. In 1999 Christian started playing guitar and singing for the American comic polymath Rich Hall. High points included winning the Perrier Award in 2001 for "Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw", being on subsequent CD and DVD releases, seeing the world, appearing on stage with Seinfeld star Michael Richards and getting on Late Night with Conan O' Brien. He was a regular on a BBC radio show with the Richard Herring, called That Was Then, This Is Now that was critically acclaimed and lasted for 3 series. This led to a key role in Herring’s groundbreaking podcast, As It Occurs To Me which ran for three years and won a Chortle award for best internet comedy and appearances on Radio 2’s ‘Jammin’. 'So much biblical gusto and zest it is impossible not to be possessed by his optimistic persona' (Broadway Baby). 'If you’re a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you’re probably a Christian Reilly fan already' (The Guardian). ‘LOLternative Rock’.

Patrick Draper

Patrick Draper appearing at this event

Since starting in stand-up in October 2011, Patrick has successfully driven to over 200 stand-up gigs and delivered a selection of deadpan jokes and stories to a range of different audiences: big, small, enthusiastic, indifferent, confused. 'He has won our gong shows 5 times. Very well written material with killer punchlines!' (Spiky Mike, Funhouse Comedy Clubs) 'An extremely unique brand of comedy. Patrick has nailed his persona and material from the off and has blown away every audience he has performed at for us, from our gong show to our two professional nights. His act can only be described as filthy but genius' (Roger Swift, Teknicolour Smoof) 'A compelling stage presence ushering forth gently acidic one-liners with many an unexpected twist. In short, a most amusing cove!' (Anthony J Brown, Stagefright Comedy) 'Give him a gig. Solidly funny over 20 minutes with several bits you'll want to tell your mates as if you wrote it!' (Paul Savage) 'Patrick Draper is extremely funny, he is intelligent, his persona is grim, and yet warm. I've seen audiences physically lean forward in anticipation of what he is going to say next, then to be followed by an explosion of communal laughter. He has become a favorite in the Midlands, and I love it when he is on the bill!' (David Rees Jones, Promoter).
