Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
'The vertically-challenged Scouser with a guitar, savage lyrics and a voice that will break your heart (if not your crockery); topical, incisive, witty and bloody-minded.' (Glee)
His original comedy songs combine razor sharp lyrics with tunes that put their foot in the
door of your mind and refuse to leave. Firmly based in rock 'n' roll and refusing to pull no
punches, these are not the 'oh so witty' ditties of penguin-suited plink plonk piano playing
posh gobs. They are that rarity - comedy songs which are actually funny.
For nine years Steve was the smaller one in the dynamic comedy duo Skint Video, stalwart's of the Edinburgh Festival, appearing on countless television programmes such as Saturday Live, radio such as The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and their own show in 1992/3 Songlines (BBC Radio 1). Skint Video went their different ways in 1993, since when Steve has been storming across the UK and Ireland as a solo artiste.
"A highly refreshing and original comic” (The Scotsman).
“Satirical songs pulled off with real aplomb” (The Independent).

Paul F Taylor is a one of a kind comedian. An instantly watchable performer, whilst onstage he exhibits a lost playful vulnerability. This coupled with his hilarious and surreal observations never fails to leave audiences crying with laughter, gasping for air and wondering "What the F?... It's Paul F. Taylor!". Paul is a superb writer with a keen eye for the absurd in everyday life, he creates wickedly funny and astute observational comedy which is totally captivating and utterly hilarious. Certainly one for the future!
Paul was one half of the double act, Helm & Taylor with Nick Helm. He is also half of the double act Short & Curly (with Rebecca Shorrocks).
Paul has achieved notable success as a screen writer and actor. Milk! that he co-wrote and starred in, was the ShortCom Jury Select Winner 2015, and was in the official selection in LOCO, Nashville, LOL, Shortwaves, Glasgow and London Short Film festivals. It has also won the Dead Short Film Competition at Leeds International Film Festival 2015. Paul took home the title of the NATY New Act Of The Year in 2013. Battlecock! that he also co-wrote and starred in, made it into the official selection at the BFI London Film Festival 2013.
'Beautifully crafted one liners...astute observational comedy' (GQ Magazine)

With an amiable, confident stage presence and a well written set, Danny delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further.
Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word.
A bright future surely awaits.
'McLoughlin's main weapon is his audacity: he's so bold he can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs' (Chortle).
