Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
An English comedian known for his hyperactive brand of humour. Since winning Channel Four's prestigious 'So You Think You're Funny' Competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and National circuit.
With more energy than a hyperactive six-year-old sucking on a lollipop while bouncing on a space-hopper, he is a veteran of several critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival shows, three sold out national theatre tours and a New Zealand tour, firmly establishing him as one of comedy's most lively, amenable and dynamic performers.
'He is a great storyteller... prepared to go to the bleakest and most uncomfortable places... The tears of laughter came in floods’ (The Scotsman).
'Frankly brilliant' (http://www.SuchSmallPortions.com)
'A carefully weighted hour of comedic storytelling' (Fest)
'Missing This show means missing something wonderful' (Edinburgh Evening News).
Rob Rouse tour dates
'Thomas Ward is a stand-up comedian. Increasingly on the radar of promoters and punters alike for his unique style, you will find him in London and the British beyond taking you sideways, on his search for meaning, through the familiar worlds of carpet adverts, supermarkets, impersonations and tales of teenage love' (Comedy CV).
'Fine writing, evoking silly images and ideas, combines with a distinctive look to make him memorable" (Steve Bennett, Chortle).
'Inventive stand-up Thomas Ward; a spaced-out, sometimes poetic comic with a terrifying fringe, and a very funny take on the world' (The Stage).
'Intriguing... with an air and a style that was partly conventional but partly bizarre, as if the world had been ever-so-slightly knocked off its axis' (Bruce Dessau).
Tom Ward tour dates
Mark has been performing stand-up regularly since mid 2008 and has rapidly established himself as one of the most interesting and exciting young comics on the circuit.
Aside from regular gigs, he also runs and comperes his own night in Leeds, Gag Hole, which has quickly become one of the best alternative comedy events in the city. He has just returned from directing Leeds Tealights at the Edinburgh Fringe (Best Student Sketch Show 2010).
He is also half of double act Dregs with Max Dickens
So You Think You’re Funny Finalist 2009
Magners Best Newcomer 2008 - Nomination
'Obvious talent... a keen eye for untapped sources of funny' (Chortle)
'Consistently sharp' (The List)
'Sharp, quick, well delivered... something rather special' (Three Weeks)
'Excellent stage presence... very good' (Tim Vine).
Mark Smith tour dates
Comedy genius is an over used term and Damion Larkin is not a comedy genius. However, he really is very good indeed.
This former stockbroker quit his lucrative profession in August 2004 to live the dream and has never looked back. He went full time in 2005 and is now destitute, relying on state handouts and begging.
There are no genuine comparisons to this man. He is a versatile and creative comedian who always leaves audiences wanting more.
'Industrious in rotating his material... which is warmly and intelligently told' (Chortle)
'One of the country's top new comedians' (BBC).
