Mokoko Comedy Club: James Acaster, Joe Wells, Patrick Monahan, Simon Feilder
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Winning over critics and fans alike, James Acaster has earned himself a reputation as one of the most hotly tipped acts of 2012. Effortlessly confident, James's appreciation for the whimsy and detail of everyday life are a breath of fresh air. His laid back style, playful wit and appetite for the unconventional make for an evening of mirth and hilarity, and a night in his company is a treat to behold.
Since winning Laughing Boy New Act of the Year, James has gone from strength to strength appearing on Dave's One Night Stand, Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three) and Show & Tell (E4) whilst also playing to over 100,000 people on tour with Milton Jones.
'Curious, original, immensely enjoyable stuff' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department... One of comedy’s most original voices' (Evening Standard)
'Reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring but suffused with enough of his
own personality to sound crisp and fresh' (The Independent)
'Stand-up of the highest most playful order' (The Guardian).
James Acaster tour dates
'Joe Wells is a skilled jokesmith who threads great gags through intelligent political material that, whilst razor-sharp, is never particularly angry or dark. As the first gross gags open up into smarter, topical ones it's clear that this is a tightly-structured, well thought-out set. Excellent jokes and sly political comment wrapped tightly in a neat parcel which delivers regular, powerful laughs from a delighted audience. He spins new life out of easy targets like bankers and the BNP with some wonderful imagery' (British Comedy Guide)
'Highly original, inspired and suitably different from the rest of the crowd… brilliantly crafted jokes' (Comedy Central)
'A star of the future... some of the most surprising and thought-provoking material coming from any comedian in his early 20s' (The Guardian)
'A real venom in his delivery seemed to communicate that the numerous laughs that he manages to obtain are just positive collateral to the message he is trying to portray' (Broadway Baby).
Joe Wells tour dates
Winner of ITV's Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesborough comic is a rising star on the comedy circuit. Full of an insatiable lust for life, his exuberant comedy greets the audience like a sex-starved spaniel would greet a trouser leg.
A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd...!)
'High energy and conviction, his material is great; he's going to go far' (The Sunday Times)
'Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen' (Daily Mail)
'Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous' (Three Weeks)
'The same mix of control and on-stage charisma as a young Alan Davies' (The Herald)
'Monahan is a supremely engaging performer, adored by his audiences and capable of some terrific comedy' (The Scotsman).
Patrick Monahan tour dates
A rising star on the comedy circuit. 2010 saw Simon chosen by Bushmills Brothers as their beacon of wit and banter in everyday settings for their online campaign ‘Best of Friends’.
Simon also lent his wild enthusiasm and vocal talents to BAFTA-winning kids’
show Yo Gabba Gabba for NickJr and the BAFTA-nominated Jim Jam And Sunny
for CITV, plus appeared in Neon Candy for Hat Trick Productions.
'Amiable, eccentric, self-deprecating... delightfully nutty' (LA Weekly)
'Compelling to watch... Unashamedly feelgood!' (Chortle).
Simon Feilder tour dates
