Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Marlon Davis is a bright young comedian, improviser and actor who embraces his work with energy and charm, embodying his characters and delivering his acute observational material with aplomb.
His act is inspired from his upbringing, exploring Britain and tackling its social issues with skilful characterisations.
Winner of the FHM Search For A Stand-Up Hero Competition in 2009. In 2006, he was a finalist in both the So You Think You're Funny and Laughing Horse new act competitions.
Still a relative newcomer, Marlon Davis is like a breath of fresh air on stage, with an impish grin, boyish enthusiasm and an effortlessly open, confident style that instantly wins him friends in the audience.
'A compelling storyteller whose anecdotes carry the elusive stamp of urban authenticity' (The Scotsman).

Whether cheering up a distressed child, helping prevent a riot, or genuinely saving another human's actual life, Stuart Goldsmith is excellent in a crisis. When the chips aren't down however, it's a very different story... Exhilarating stand-up about embracing anxiety, conquering indecision, and getting tasered.

His wholly original social commentary, observations and anecdotes are his trade mark. He brings intelligent material as well as simple immature jokes to any room. He enjoys gigging all over the country to any audience, whether he is MC or doing a set. Chris Martin is a keen observer and uses his uniquely twisted logic as he often tackles ‘earth shattering’ problems.
'Hilarious... takes this year's Fringe by the scruff of the neck' (Metro)
'Destined for greatness... he's got charm, anecdotes, callbacks and a worrying father' (The Sunday Times)
'One of the UK's best young observationalists' (The Guardian)
