Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
'The vertically-challenged Scouser with a guitar, savage lyrics and a voice that will break your heart (if not your crockery); topical, incisive, witty and bloody-minded.' (Glee)
His original comedy songs combine razor sharp lyrics with tunes that put their foot in the
door of your mind and refuse to leave. Firmly based in rock 'n' roll and refusing to pull no
punches, these are not the 'oh so witty' ditties of penguin-suited plink plonk piano playing
posh gobs. They are that rarity - comedy songs which are actually funny.
For nine years Steve was the smaller one in the dynamic comedy duo Skint Video, stalwart's of the Edinburgh Festival, appearing on countless television programmes such as Saturday Live, radio such as The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and their own show in 1992/3 Songlines (BBC Radio 1). Skint Video went their different ways in 1993, since when Steve has been storming across the UK and Ireland as a solo artiste.
"A highly refreshing and original comic” (The Scotsman).
“Satirical songs pulled off with real aplomb” (The Independent).

David Longley has been described as 'a difficult comedian to define; on the one hand, abrasive, crude and insulting and on the other, articulate, intelligent and disarmingly funny' (http://www.gagreflex.co.uk)
'Acid tongued and as sharp as a barrel full of tacks... As intense and
intelligent performer as you're likely to see' (The List)
'Intelligent, silly, thought-provoking and filthy... Proves that comedy can say something important and, crucially, still be funny' (Metro)
'A uniquely fascinating act... A must see' (Steve Bennet, Chortle).

Karen began her comedy career back in 2001 and since then she has gone from strength to strength. As resident compere at her own club in Sutton Coldfield Karen honed her comedic talents and is now a well respected comic travelling the country entertaining the masses. Karen was the first ever female winner of the prestigious Comedy Store King Gong award.
In 2004 she took a show to the Edinburgh Festival with Susan Murray where she gained glowing reviews.
'Inspired and sparkling punchlines... comic timing that is rarely less than brilliant. An assured performer who doesn't have much trouble getting audiences laughing' (Steve Bennett, Chortle UK)
'She has me in stitches' (Alan Carr)
'Blew my socks off... doesn't dwell too much on lady issues... Funny in her own right... brilliant, clever and she's gonna be huge' (BBC Tees).
