Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Dave Twentyman's burgeoning reputation means that he can now confidently consider himself one of his home town of St Helens’ finest exports, tales of home, work and the universe are delivered in a stream of consciousness both mesmerizing and friendly.
'Affable, quick-witted banter merchant, Dave Twentyman survived a childhood in St Helens by evolving rapid, startlingly-bright patter and a smile that he somehow stole from Barry Manilow. This is a man who could teach Teflon a trick-or-two but who remains vastly more fun than your average frying-pan. What higher praise can there be?' (http://comedycv.co.uk)
'Thoroughly impressed, best I've seen in ages. Great warmth and style' (Dave Spikey)
'Quick on his feet' (Gag Reflex)
'Really like his stuff' (Jason Manford).
Dave Twentyman tour dates
Razor sharp Mancunian with a shed load of brutally funny anecdotes about his much put-upon friend 'Rudgie'. Plus wicked witticisms that belie his fresh-faced boy band demeanour. Not even bovver boys 'Five' got this near-to-the-knuckle. Runner-up in the City Life Comedian of the year 2003 and fresh from a sold-out, critically acclaimed solo show at the Manchester Comedy Festival.
'His seamless interactions with the crowd demonstrate that he's a natural-born comedian... appealing to both the young and old, female and male' (Three Weeks).
Danny Deegan tour dates
'Glasgow born and bred, Scott Gibson smashed onto the stand-up scene in November 2010, quickly establishing himself on the circuit.
A storyteller at heart, Gibson mixes a conversational style with his own unique brand of dark humour. Confidently leading his audience down a path, few dare to tread. This ability to push boundaries and control any room he plays, has allowed Gibson to move up the ranks quicker than many before him.
'He's got oomph, energy and likeability' (Chortle)
'Gibson is a natural' (The Skinny)
'The best act to emerge from Scotland in years' (Des Clarke)
'A natural, gifted, unapologetic storyteller' (Frankie Boyle)
'He blew my mind, exceptional delivery' (Daniel Sloss).
Scott Gibson tour dates
Scottish Comedian Of The Year finalist and fast rising MC. Ray is ginger and it's caused him some pain. Expect a set peppered with witty one liners!
'Affable Glaswegian Ray Bradshaw compered and he instantly had the busy venue in stitches' (Edinburgh Evening News).
Ray Bradshaw tour dates
Returning to stand up after a 8 year break as a Pro Wrestler has found Steffen a little older, wiser
and bigger than before, but still ready to find the lighter side of any subject or audience member
thrown at him.
Prior to his time away Steffen had been performing for several years in the North of England. An original member of Newcastle Upon Tyne’s "Near The Knuckle" team with such luminaries as Anvil Springstein, Vladamir McTavish, Gavin Webster and Ross Noble, he brings a different approach to whatever venue he performs at.
With Ross Noble, the two wrote and performed sketches on ITV’s children’s Saturday Morning
show Gimme 5 for a season as well as doing a health and fitness show called Burst! for ITV as
well as numerous regional shows in the North East. Now back doing stand up he is one of the
regular comperes at the Funny Bones chain of clubs in the North East as well as getting booked as either a 20 to 30 minute slot or as MC in other clubs. He is the worlds first Fat Mime artist and has won the Literature North East’s "New Word Order Slam"
“He holds the audience's attention throughout and leaves the stage with me wanting more” - BBC
“A fresh emerging Geordie talent” - Metro
“Johnny Vegas may still hold the fat gags crown, but Peddie would make a worthy understudy” - The Journal
