Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
With a likeable manner on stage belying some of the stronger content, Nelson often has audiences laughing at things they know they really shouldn’t be laughing at. An MA degree in Politics from Glasgow University supports his brilliantly topical writing and, although his stand-up is certainly not for the easily offended, the material is intelligent, well conceived and beautifully crafted, all supported by a very confident delivery. He is therefore a very sought-after comedian and writer, with both the skill and intellect to be able to adapt his material to suit and entertain any club, theatre or corporate audiences. Prepare to be shocked. 'A star in the making' (The List) 'An unquestionably talented writer and performer... great jokes, and lots of them' (The Daily Telegraph) 'A remarkably accomplished stage presence... blistering material which pushes dangerously near the boundaries of good taste' (The Sunday Times).

This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience. A finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more unusual. 'Hugely enjoyable... a ton of great stories... one to watch' (The Guardian) 'Razor sharp humour' (Metro) '... the appealing and perceptive Barry Dodds... captivates his audiences with his energy, spirit and tantalizing wit. His mix of surprisingly uncanny and irrepressibly cheeky material leaves them wanting for more' (Funhouse Comedy).

Comic who uses his physicality as an extra dimension to his show. A finalist on Channel 4's 'So You Think You're Funny?', topical and not afraid to say what he thinks, Nick Doody's brand of political comedy and satire has won fans all over the country. Whilst still a student he supported Bill Hicks on his final tour of the UK, on Bill’s request. 'Some of the best political material I have heard in a while... comic genius' (The Scotsman) “Very impressive...unfailingly good punchlines...intelligent and funny...comes with the chortle seal of approval” - (Chortle) ***** “A refreshing change...Sharp witted, but never sharp-tongued” (THREE WEEKS) *****
