TV's comedy guerilla with his own shrewd take on governmental and corporate exploitation. Mark Thomas is well versed in the art of creative mayhem and over the years his troublemaking has changed laws, cost companies millions and annoyed those who most deserved to be.
“One of Britain's greatest storytellers…beautifully-paced and structured…a passionate humanity that surpasses most other work at the Fringe" (The Scotsman).
'A brand of comedy that carries a far weightier purpose than to simply generate laughs.. Cuckooed leaves a lasting impression' (Sunday Herald)
'A clever, funny and angry show... an excoriating, heartfelt monologue...Thomas the polemicist deploys the comedian's eye for a situation's dark absurdities' (The Guardian)
'Thomas's show ruefully tots up the cost of personal betrayal' (Sunday Times)
'Bracing, brilliant and necessary... Mark Thomas is the most intelligent of the modern leftist stand-ups... an unmissable hour' (Theatre Cat).
Mark Thomas was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
Mark Thomas tour dates
A former member of the Cambridge Footlights, he first came to the Fringe with the 2001 Edinburgh show Far Too Happy, which also starred Mark Watson and was nominated for the Perrier award for best newcomer.
He also featured in Alex Horne's best-newcomer nominated Making Fish Laugh in 2003, and is part of the four-man sketch troupe Cowards. His solo Edinburgh debut came in 2004, with the tragic one-man comedy play Luke & Stella, which was made into a Radio 4 series called All Bar Luke.
'This is one art house form-buster who can really give you a good time' (Times)
'In any other sphere apart from comedy, we'd probably class this way of looking at the world as certifiable. Here it feels like genius' (The Daily Telegraph)
'As daring and innovative as it is ridiculously funny... He's a genius, plain and simple' (Time Out).
Tim Key tour dates

In 2015 they started hosting the Knock2Bag comedy nights at Moth Club in London introducing new characters and new material on a regular basis.
'Funny premises are augmented by great little sub-gags and physical turns before being topped off with a strong punchline. Tremendous stuff' (The Scotsman).
Cardinal Burns tour dates
A tall, gangly Northerner who delivers his own brand of no-nonsense humour. He has made appearances on Just A Minute, Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week and Nevermind The Buzzcocks.
'A master storyteller, holding the audience before dropping an exploding but simple punchline...' (Metro)
'Filled with prime laugh-out-loud stupid moments' (The List, Glasgow & Edinburgh)
'... real craft and creativity... results that satisfy both the comedy purists and those who simply want big laughs on a big night out' (The Guardian)
'The best, as well as the most natural stand-up I've seen' (The Independent)
'Alun Cochrane's ability to make the little things in life a comedy goldmine is
'Brilliant no-frills stand-up comedy' (The List)
'A no-nonsense comedian who specialises in funny nonsense' (Camberley Theatre).
