The Best In Live Stand-Up Comedy: Ian Cognito, Dan Nightingale, Jimmy McGhie, Jonny Awsum
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Ian Cognito has been compared to Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks and Gerry Sadowitz. Winner of the Time Out Stand Up Comedy Performance Award 1999. He has been excluded from many venues because of his onstage antics.
Outspoken, opinionated and totally clued up, Ian Cognito's take on the world will have you convinced and convulsed (with laughter) as he spits his darkly humorous vitriol over an unsuspecting crowd.
'If you want to know what's wrong with New Britain, Ian Cognito's going to tell you. And if you don't, you'd better keep your mouth shut. Just stunning' (The Guardian)
'This electrifying, terrifying and ultimately vulnerable performer warmed a cold Glasgow audience to boiling point. Stand up should always be like this' (The List)
'First time I saw Cognito I was blown away. I was blown away the second time too. Third time I thought I could do that' (Reginald D Hunter).

Dan is a huge star of the national circuit and is a resident compere and act at Manchester's Famous Frog and Bucket Comedy Club. He is an act not to be missed!
'Nightingale can make just about anything funny. He's lightning-quick' (Time Out)
'A superb compilation of brilliantly crafted stories written by someone who unquestionably has a keen and instinctive eye for comedy. Nightingale's buoyant energy makes for entertaining stand up' (Broadway Baby)
'Dan's laughing, we're laughing... funny as hell' (Leicester Mercury)
'A witty and incredibly well timed comic' (Arts Award Voice)
'It is his powers of observation that make him so entertaining. Outrageously funny' (KeepingupwithNZ)
'Magnetic, entertaining and wonderfully funny' (Three Weeks).

Jimmy McGhie is a highly regarded young stand-up and comic performer, appearing on the UK and international comedy circuit to great acclaim. A finalist in
the BBC New Talent competition, Jimmy is one of Britain's hottest comedy talents.
Having already built up a solid fan base, his 2009 and 2010 Edinburgh solo shows were complete sell-outs. Having appeared on Russell Howard's Good News, Jimmy's comedy stock is set to go into the stratosphere.
'A performance that demonstrates he meets all the requirements needed to
become a TV star' (British Comedy Guide)
'There are few comics I can think of who have the sheer star quality of Jimmy McGhie. He is the perfect little comedy package' (The Scotsman)
'Hilarious and lovable... A fantastic storyteller' (Three Weeks).

A dab hand at singing, acting, presenting, stand-up comedy and playing guitar, Jonny Awsum has a crowd-pleasing set that's seen him smash thousands of gigs all around the world.
Jonny's musings include everything from the white lies he tells his girlfriend to his new home town of Croydon and the memory of his first love at eight years old. He has presented for Sky Sports, been warm up act for Big Brother and Loose Women and also starred in several adverts including Cravendale, The Post Office, Experian and even Puntigamer beer in Austria.
'With his guitar and musical parodies he amuses his audiences charming them with his warm and friendly persona, his style of audience participation is second to none' (Funhouse Comedy).
