Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
With a fabulous flair for acutely accurate observational musings and lightning fast ad-libbing Caimh has fast built himself a reputation on the comedy circuit as the hilarious white-haired fella whose name nobody can pronounce.
Caimh is in great demand as a writer for TV. He has worked on the hit BBC2 show ‘The Sarah Millican Television Programme’ and written for comics on ‘Mock the Week’ and ‘Have I Got News for You’.
'Snappy storytelling from a very funny man' (Sarah Milllican).
'Superb, a source of joy' (Time Out)
'... a standout act' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Genial white-haired Irishman Caimh (pronounced 'Queeve') has quickly established himself as one of the circuits most amiable and friendly acts. His gentle yet incisive humour makes any audience feel involved, whilst playing with their expectations' (Funhouse Comedy).
Caimh McDonnell tour dates
2011 Chortle Best Newcomer and Best Emerging Comedy award Nominee from Adelaide fringe.

'Simply a joy' (List)
'One of the most exciting comics on the Fringe... personable, hilarious and ballsy' (Broadway Baby).
Diane Spencer tour dates
Extremely distinctive comedy from a former London solicitor.
'Posh and witty... exquisitely funny... one of the new comics making waves' (Time Out)
'His comedy is intelligent and so up-to-date it could be read by Jon Snow' (Cream of
'There's intelligent wit, honesty and more interesting and provocative thoughts in his show than many comics manage in a decade... Andrew Watts is so engaging, so entertaining and so persuasive that we are all sad when his clever, personal and very funny hour comes to an end' (The Scotsman)
'His distinctive style stands out – a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance' (Chortle)
'Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show' (Three Weeks).
Andrew Watts tour dates
A friendly and energetic act, whose quality one-liner gags and upbeat persona liven up any night, Spiky Mike is founder of Funhouse Comedy and resident compere at all the clubs, as well as performing paid gigs at clubs around the country for respected promoters such as Agraman and Mirth Control.
