This event has been and gone!
Catch the next one:
Best In Live Stand-up Comedy: Dave Fulton, Andrew Bird, Tobias Persson, Luke Honnoraty
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Whoever it was who decided that Americans don't have any sense of irony, they forgot to tell Dave Fulton. This wry Seattle wag is positively brimming over with ironic invective. With his stringy beard, straggly long hair and rock 'n' roll black leather jacket, Fulton looks more like a refugee from a defunct British heavy metal band than an all-American stand-up... there's a salty flavour to his live club set that you'd scarcely describe as feminist. It's these contradictions that make Fulton so fascinating, and fun to watch, especially when he's riffing with British punters half a world away from home. (The Guide)
Dave Fulton tour dates
Relaxed and improvisatory, Andrew Bird is one of those rare comedians who makes friends with his audiences in an instant with his engaging mix of childhood stories and more recent anecdotes.
'Superb... the exciting rising star' (Time Out)
'A natural comedian' (The Stage)
'Beautifully observed and insightful... not only an entertaining story but a very funny hour of fine stand-up' (Chortle)
'Effortlessly engaging and funny as hell' (Rhod Gilbert).
Andrew Bird tour dates
Stand-up comic and actor from Sweden.
'His material is thoughtful and silly, and he makes some sophisticated parallels alongside some surreal little islands of the bizarre and profane. Easy-going intelligence, and a curiosity which makes him lovely' (The Skinny, August 2011)
'Refreshing taste of absurdity, comfortably mastered by the Swedish comic' (Three Weeks, August 2011)
'Thoughts that are likely to strike a chord... concisely and effectively put' (Steve Bennett, Chortle).
Tobias Persson tour dates
Highly regarded as one of the best acts to emerge from the south west in recent years, award winning stand-up comedian Luke Honnoraty has been hotly tipped by some of the UK's biggest promoters as 'one to watch'.
After bursting onto the circuit in 2010 as the winner of the 'South West New Act of the Year', Luke has gone from strength and is now performing alongside the best names in comedy in some if the UK's best comedy clubs. Having supported the likes of Matt Richardson and Russell Kane in the past, Plus Supporting Katherine Ryan on the south west tour dates of 2014 and in the following year took his first show 'Small Town Heroes' to the Edinburgh Fringe.
An infectiously funny, natural born comic who is the perfect addition to any comedy line up.
