Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Stand-up comedian from Nova Scotia, Canada. Peter White is a self deprecating everyman who tackles subjects as wide-ranging as body image, relationships, homophobia and time travel. He has a high energy delivery which drives the material relentlessly forward with the sole purpose of getting the big laugh.
He has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award and a Writer's Guild of Canada Award, and appeared in a TV mini-series with Pierce Brosnan.
'He's performed all across Canada, including the prestigiou Just For Laugh's international comedy festival in Montreal and has written for various television shows.
'One of the Top 5 up and coming comics in Canada' (CBC Radio One)
'People adore Peter White!' (The Coast, Halifax)
'Belly laughs... absolutely brilliant' (Chortle).
Peter White tour dates
Former singer / songwriter who, prompted by friends and fans who often found themselves in fits of giggles at her silly in between song banter, entered Channel 4's So You Think You're Funny and found herself in the semi finals at Edinburgh Fringe in Summer 2004. Rosie made the switch to comedy in 2005.
'A whole host of laughs' (http://www.one4review.co.uk)
'utterly charming' (Buzz)
'you will fall for Wilby's show no matter where you sit on the Kinsey scale' (Scotsgay).
Rosie Wilby tour dates
Half-American downbeat comedian who draws on his 'life of grinding poverty' to produce the laughs. Expect dark tales of his family and love life (he even confesses to a medical condition that makes sex uncomfortable!). You can't help yourself laughing at his misfortune!
'His bleak world view was enlivened with brilliant and unexpected turns of phrase and the element of desperation as disaster piled on disaster had a cumulatively hilarious effect, as in farce, where the more dire the consequences for the protagonist, the harder we laugh at his discomfort' (Chortle). Tour support for Ricky Gervais.
'The best comedian you haven't heard of yet' (Mark Watson, Time Out)
'At once hilarious and painfully revelatory' (Chortle)
'The stand-out stand-up' (Evening Standard)
'What a genuinely fresh and powerful voice... It is wonderful' (Scotsman).
Sean McLoughlin tour dates
London-based stand-up comedian who has warmed up for BBC's Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Pointless, supported Glenn Wool on tour and gigged extensively as an opening act and MC.
His innovative and distinctive material never fails to amuse his audiences.
'Highly rated up-and-comer' (The Guardian)
'Original, distinctive and fresh' (Chortle).
