Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Winner: Best Debut Show – 2009 Leicester Comedy Festival.
John has quickly made his name as one of the most quick-witted, engaging comedians on the circuit. He's the latest to burst out of Bristol's hotbed of talent and he has stories to tell, banter to have and bombs to drop.
'Funnier than all of them, his self-deprecation and Olympic ad-libbing would have you skipping happily down even the darkest alley' (Venue)
'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
'Comedy's best kept secret' (The Skinny)
'A complete and utter natural' (Russell Howard)
'... fantastically entertaining' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Sparkling stand-up' (The Times)
'One of the most consistently pleasing hours on the fringe' (The Independent)
'One of the most naturally gifted comedians I've seen' (The Daily Telegraph).

Steve won the North West Comedian of the Year 1998 and was a finalist in 'So You Think You're Funny' in the same year. With support slots with the likes of Johnny Vegas, Peter Kay and Lee Evans, Steve comes highly recommended from the heavy weights of comedy themselves.
'Fancy dancing, quick one-liners and a whole lot of charisma' (Daily Post)
'Quite simply, fantastically funny' (BBC).
Steve Harris tour dates
Carl started performing stand-up regularly in the early part of 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new comics currently climbing the comedy ladder.
Despite still being a relative newcomer, his confident, conversational style and childish sense of humour has seen him become a regular at clubs all over the country including various universities as part of the Avalon Comedy Network.
'Carl Donnelly effortlessly intertwines storytelling and observational humour with honed improvised skills' (http://www.comedy.co.uk)
'A ludicrously funny hour... effortless and utterly captivating' (The Skinny)
'This degree of innate comic talent is a rare and beautiful thing. Not to be missed' (Broadway Baby)
'One of the most engaging and bendy-minded comics on the circuit' (The Guardian)
'He's a remarkable talent – a relaxed, easygoing anecdotalist with an eye for funny details. An hour in his company is a true delight' (Time Out).
Carl Donnelly was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
