Info provided by the Event Organiser
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
'Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians.' - Stewart Lee
'If I had to compare him to anyone, it would be Spike Milligan.' - Omid Djalili

Helen Arney tour dates
Up and coming comic, who uses his physicality as an extra dimension to his show. A finalist on Channel 4's 'So You Think You're Funny?', topical and not afraid to say what he thinks, Nick Doody's brand of political comedy and satire has won fans all over the country.
'Some of the best political material I have heard in a while... comic genius' (The Scotsman)
'... darkly hilarious...' (The List)
'... sharp, intelligent and satirical' Chortle).
Nick Doody tour dates
Multi-award winning comedian Tom Taylor has received high praise from audiences and critics alike. His unique brand of musical comedy is smart and silly in equal measure and he can boast an impressive stock of quirky, and very funny, musical one-liners. After graduating with a degree in Music from the University of York, Tom worked as a composer and lyricist on a number of productions including a new family musical and an adaptation of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge.
In 2013 Tom reached the final of the prestigious So You Think You're Funny? competition, previously won by Dylan Moran, Lee Mac and Peter Kay. In 2014, he reached the final of the Hobgoblin Comedy Award and, the following year, won the inaugural Great Yorkshire Fringe New Comedian of the Year competition.
Tom has performed on Radio 2 and Radio 4 Extra as part of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award and has supported Simon Munnery on tour.
"His brand of nervous, neurotic musical comedy – coupling deliberately simplistic tunes on an old Casio keyboard with cleverly constructed lyrics and smart wordplay – is an absolute delight." - The Skinny
