Viv Groskop tour dates
Malcolm Hardee Award Nominee, Winner of Best Show Buxton Fringe 2014 (Nominee 2015/2016/2017) and regular act at Time Out Critics Choice The Rat Pack stand-up comedy. Nathan gigs, MCs and headlines all over the country and his new show 'If I caused the financial crash of 2008' can be seen around the country into 2018.
'Such a safe pair of hands... There's a smart mischief to the material, while his piercingly sarcastic jibes at better-paid entertainers have a touch of the Stewart Lee to them' Steve Bennett, Chortle Oct 2017
'Rock-solid hilarity...Nathan Cassidy is true, vulnerable and genuine. His show goes deeper than just having a laugh. I think Nathan is an authentic example of bravery for us all because he dares to go on stage and show us what he, in particular, was put on this earth to do.' ****Mumble Aug 2017 for The Man in the Arena
'A great comedian. His rapport with the audience is instant and constant... Nathan Cassidy is fast becoming a firm favourite' ****(Broadway Baby)
'In a beautifully structured hour of comedy, Cassidy was brave and generous - and having seen Bill Hicks I can honestly say that he is as good as him.' 2017 BuxtonFringe.org.uk review
Nathan Cassidy tour dates
Goofy and peculiar, Stephanie Laing's comedy is partway between the needy oddness of Maria Bamford and the upbeat affability of Josie Long. Her material is a mix of silliness, filth and unusual observations, underpinned by a disarming honesty which makes her seem charmingly vulnerable.
'A great stand-up. Always works magic' (Phil Kay)
'Disgusting and delightful in equal measure' (Three Weeks)
'Stephanie Laing offered up a gloriously silly set, coming across as wonderfully unpretentious and getting the audience on her side from the first line. Her off-the-wall observations about her own anxieties were delivered with awkward tenacity and came off as entirely believable mementoes of her everyday life' (Broadway Baby)
'... the tremendously smart and silly Stephanie Laing...' (Funhouse Comedy).
