Banana Cabaret: Tom Stade, Kevin Day, Simon Clayton, Keith Farnan
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Since coming to the UK, the Canadian has built up a reputation as a popular and highly recommended comedian. He is willing to tackle a huge range of topics, from the obscure to the familiar, from a simple gag to quirky, inventive, rambling anecdotes with unexpected punchlines. Even if he occasionally seems to lose sight of where he's going, at least you know he's taking the audience with him.
'Wonderfully imaginative, original and hilarious' (Rhod Gilbert)
'So cool he could well be the answer to global warming. Gloriously funny silly and smart' (The Scotsman)
'Rock 'n' roll comedian. Absolutely boxfresh; nothing is staid about Stade' (Evening Standard)
'One of the best practitioners of stand-up we've got... stand-up elite' (Chortle)
“Huge presence...really knows how to work a room...attitude and energy...properly hilarious, thoroughly enjoyable.” (Mirror)
'Every inch a star... super confidence and charisma. If comedy is the new rock 'n' roll, then Tom Stade is Keith Richards' (Scottish Daily Record).
Tom Stade was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
Tom Stade tour dates
One of the few comics who can still call themselves topical, his material covers a variety of subjects always including powerful political asides, but also the occasional silly joke.
For many his is known as the face of Match Of The Day 2, but is also a writer for Have I Got News for You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and A League Of Their Own.
'... beautifully crafted, cleverly paced, hugely funny show' (Scotland on Sunday)
'Day is quite simply performing at the top of his game' (The List).
Kevin Day tour dates
He has appeared on numerous TV shows such as Punt And Dennis, Jo Brand's Through The Cakehole and Harry Hill. In addition to touring the country with his stand-up comedy, he has starred as part of Eddie Izzard's Improv team and has numerous radio credits on BBC and commercial radio.
'... like a bottle of HP sauce - fat, brown and fruity!' (Loaded)
'Likeable fast thinking Londoner' (London Evening Standard).
Simon Clayton tour dates
A former solicitor, Keith has the natural ability to delve into themes other comics may shy away from and it is this aptitude that is placing him in the lead of investigative comedians. He has been a regular guest on radio, both in Ireland and the UK, from BBC, RTE, Talk Sport, Today FM, Newstalk and all sorts of other warm and welcoming studios.
Keith Farnan has performed as a stand-up all over the world, from Montreal, to Amsterdam, to Hong Kong.
His television credits include BBC3's Most Annoying People, One Night Stand (BBC), Liffey Laughs (RTE) and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC1).
He has also written for and performed in The Insomniac Club for BBC Radio as well as appearing on Loose Ends and Colin Murphy's Great Unanswered Questions (BBCNI).
'... If Eddie Izzard had been Irish, he'd surely have turned out a lot like Keith Farnan' (The Scotsman)
'Brilliant, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny' (Time Out).
