    Commander Chris Hadfield said that six months on the International Space Station made him feel a great sense of just how much the world is all one place and we are all one people living together on it. “Very friendly but fiercely political” (Time Out) comedian Tiernan Douieb wonders why we have to send people quite so far away to have that realisation, and just how feasible is it to fire a large portion of the population into space until they behave?

    “A perennial contender for the title of most affable person in comedy.” The Scotsman

    “Douieb has more than enough energy to go round, and he’s a hugely engaging onstage presence.” British Comedy Guide

    http://www.jessicafostekew.com/

    Jessica’s fourth hour looks at what the future drops. Lets hope its not a baby. Especially not one called Colin. Maybe it would it better for it? It was called Colin. Memories aren’t real and plans are ridiculous. AGHHHHH.

    “Intelligent humour and sharp, insightful stand up.” The Evening Standard

    “There are plenty of comedians willing to dumb themselves down in order to win audience approval, but that’s not a game Jessica Fostekew is prepared to play…great fun, if not the sort of thing that’s likely to win over fans of Paddy McGuinness.” The Guardian

    JACK BARRY
    @jbazzler

    Part-time comedian Jack Barry gears up for his debut hour, an introduction to the inner workings of his confused brain. It’s mainstream, observational stand up, written by a man too strange to have observed anything relatable.
    In the past he has performed in Edinburgh as part of the prestigious Comedy Reserve in 2013 and Comedy Zone in 2014. He has also supported James Acaster on his last 3 UK tours and is one half of sketch duo Twins. He really hopes you come along and enjoy the show, he’s writing this in the third person.

    http://www.carlhutchinson.net/

    If the world ended today, how would you be remembered? In this show, Carl contemplates what exactly he’s brought to the table of life and why he’s even asking such questions at the age of 27. Between his job as a comedian & being a lifelong fan of wrestling he hasn’t really done that much.

    Carl explains his love of wrestling and how it’s remained the one constant from his child-to-adulthood.
    Attempting to escape the strict parameters of stand-up & wrestling, how can he improve upon his sheltered existence?

    “Big laughs.” Time Out

    PAUL SINHA – POSTCARDS FROM THE Z LIST
    http://www.paulsinha.com/

    EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD BEST NEWCOMER NOMINEE

    Critically acclaimed Edinburgh favourite Paul Sinha returns to this year’s Festival after a self-imposed exile during which real life took over. Looking back, life as a travelling single gaysian delivering lefty liberal jokes was quite straightforward. Now he has to juggle the responsibilities of being an uncle, being in an actual relationship for the first time in twenty years, and being that bloke, from that quiz, in that poorly fitting white suit. It’s not easy.

    “One of the most technically gifted comics on the British circuit.” Scotsman

    “Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate.” Chortle

    “Honest, heartfelt, uplifting and intelligent.” List

    MATTHEW CROSBY – SMALLER THAN LIFE

Come along, have a chuckle or two, leave, never really think about it again. Matthew has appeared on 8 out of 10 Cats; Never Mind the Buzzcocks; Celebrity 15-1; and 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. And let’s not forget that he appeared as a news-reading dog on BBC 1’s Animal Antics.

    DIANE SPENCER – POWER TOOL
    http://www.difunny.co.uk/

    Award-winning comedian Diane Spencer’s sixth hour-long stand-up show is based on her real life experiences of 2014, when she was trying to find/make a dream house, despite being unable to afford it, and being absolutely crap at DIY. She also got a surprise phone call from a media celebrity asking to write a biographical play to produce at the Fringe, and this show covers the good, bad and weird things that happened along the way. Diane’s story unfolds with her typical charm, sparkling wit and dark humour.

    LIAM WILLIAMS
    http://liamwilliamscomedy.blogspot.co.uk/

    DOUBLE EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD NOMINEE

    British comedy’s brightest young thinker, Williams’ comedy is a down-beat promenade through casted optimisms, and personal shortcomings. Following two sold-out London runs, a UK tour, critical acclaim, an Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer and Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination, we thought it was about bloody time Liam came to play at the Good Ship, as he concots his third solo show.

    If you like television he’s done a few things for that: Russell Howard’s Good News, Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, something for Channel 4. And if you’re old, he’s been on BBC Radio 4, like, three times.

    “Extraordinary, a shatteringly funny set from a comic who’s not ashamed to take the business of being alive seriously.” ✭✭✭✭✭ THE GUARDIAN

    “Williams now sounds like the voice of a generation.” ✭✭✭✭ THE INDEPENDENT

    “Liam Williams’s exceptional new show, delivered with marvellous moroseness, also fizzes with wit, intelligence and eloquence.” ✭✭✭✭ THE TELEGRAPH

    “A clever and unique performer.” ✭✭✭✭ TIME OUT

    “His is a captivating worldview which confronts his audience and the whole notion of stand-up.” ✭✭✭✭ THE LIST

    “A beautifully crafted, downbeat narrative… Every elegiac word has been polished until it sings.” ✭✭✭✭✭ METRO

    RHYS JAMES – REMAINS
    @rhysjamesy

    There’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is Rhys James is back with another classic hour of stand-up comedy and (definitely cool and not pretentious) poetry to smash your jaws to the floor once again. The bad news is you’re going to struggle to get a ticket.

    “Destined for great things… Charismatic, clever and self-aware.” Guardian

    “Outstanding and seriously funny.” Edinburgh Evening News

    “Sickeningly talented young stand-up.” Time Out

    “James’s gags are 24-carat zingers, among the best at the Fringe.” Metro

After years of being protected from any sort of responsibility he recently became his nephew’s godfather. Come see how this brought John and his father closer together, and discover why the NHS isn’t really that bad.
