Crack Comedy, Kingston: Otiz Cannelloni, Mark Smith, Josh Howie, Windsor
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Otiz Cannelloni combines magic and the logic of stand-up to produce a hybrid comic creation. With a mind more suited to testing crash helmets, his performance fluctuates between sheer genius and downright stupidity.
'Master of mirth and minimalist magic... delightful' (Time Out).

One of the UK's top comperes, Windsor is a first class host with a natural charm and warmth, along with an enviable ability to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in any room.
By transferring his street experience of audience control and off-the-cuff humour, Windsor became a highly skilled and supremely professional comedy circuit compere almost overnight, with an extraordinary ability to warm up a show and keep it running at a high quality level. In addition, top quality material makes him a top-notch act.
'Windsor warmed-up and flushed out the hecklers... A skilled compere, Windsor delivers hot material with a rare skill' (The Stage)
'A very good act with excellent control of his audience' (Melbourne Age).
