The Best Of The Chortle Awards Tour: Adam Bloom, Tom Toal, Rhys Jones, Stephen Carlin
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
One of the most sought-after acts in the country. Perrier Award Nominee and Polygram Award winner for best stand-up at the Edinburgh Festival. Undoubtedly one of Britain's sharpest comic brains - all this and he doesn't swear.
'He's been one of my favourite stand-ups for about ten years (Ricky Gervais)
'In the premier league of comedy' (The Independent)
'He makes me laugh out loud, I can't wait to see him live' (Sir Ian McKellen)
'Bloom is perhaps the perfect comedian' (The List).
Adam Bloom tour dates
Comedian, writer and actor from the town of Bexleyheath, South East London.
'Toal's ease of interacting with the audience is a true talent' (Hairline)
'Funny and touching. Winning over his audience with charm, genuine depth of feeling, and free tiny yoghurts, Toal painted an impressive, and at times, disturbing picture of a man on the edge... humour from the heart' (Three Weeks)
'Master of storytelling' (http://www.PunchlineUK.wordpress.com)
'You might find yourself taking a paracetemol to kill the pain in your jawline
'We forget the misery and cold of the outside as the Tom Toal comedy glow warms
us all' (Kate Copstick)
'Touching addition to the Daniel Kitson-esque heart-on-sleeve comedy sub genre' (List).
Tom Toal tour dates
'Destined for great things... Charismatic, clever and self-aware' (The Guardian)
'Outstanding and seriously funny' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'Sickeningly talented young stand-up' (Time Out)
'James's gags are 24-carat zingers, among the best at the Fringe' (Metro).
Rhys Jones tour dates
Stephen Carlin began his stand-up career in 2002 and soon became a permanent fixture on the comedy circuit, supporting Stewart Lee and Stephen Merchant on tour, also appearing in Stewart Lee's 10 Best Stand-ups In the World Ever. Stephen has appeared in Comedy Cuts [ITV] and Edinburgh & Beyond [Paramount Comedy], and has written for Radio shows such as Laura Solon Talking and Not Talking [BBC Radio 4].
'Sharp, slightly offbeat, mainly very funny' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'The whimsy and relaxed on-stage demeanour were a winner instantly... (Carlin) excelled in pedantry, married to exceptional use of language' (Leamington Observer)
'... if this man isn't a household name in five years' time, the world is even more lacking in justice than we could have feared' (The Scotsman)
'... a delightfully off beat act who expertly applies twisted, convoluted logic to common-or-garden observations to produce genuinely original material... a definite tip for the top' (Chortle).
