“One of stand-up’s premier goons, heroically committed to nonsense, knight errant of the dizzy non-sequitur.” Guardian
“The living absurd comedic incarnation of the Fringe.” ***** Skinny
“Chaos has rarely been so finely constructed and this much fun.” **** The Times
“Imagine if Harry Potter was a Canadian non-wizard who writes very funny jokes with his big hands, that’s Tony Law.” Sean Lock
“I can’t recommend this show highly enough. Tremendous comedy. Really great.” Tony Law
Nigel is a Malaysian comic who moved to the UK in 2015. Since then his brand of laser-sharp one liners have won him plaudits all across the circuit. He was crowned winner of the prestigious Amused Moose Laugh Off Award in the year he arrived and also runner up in the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year competition.
“Natural funny bones.” Chortle
Simon Watt is a biologist, writer, science communicator, comedian and TV presenter.
He runs the “Ugly Animal Preservation Society” which is a comedy night with a conservation twist. It went on to find global fame/notoriety when it teamed up with the National Science and Engineering Competition to host an online campaign resulting in the election of the blobfish as the ugliest animal on the planet.
His new book “The Ugly Animals: We Can’t All be Pandas” is out now. He has also written dozens of articles for national newspapers and websites including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, the Daily Mirror and the New York Daily News.
He is a regular contributor to TV, radio and web and is perhaps best known as a presenter on the BAFTA winning documentary series Inside Nature’s Giants and the Channel 4 special The Elephant: Life After Death. He’ll be sharing with us the most gory and gruesome tales of dissection and scientific investigation, especially for Hallowe’en.
A finalist in this year’s So You Think You’re Funny? competition, Sophie is a bright, breezy and sharp new comic.
“An easy charm…consistently funny.” Chortle
One of the most exciting comics to come out of America, Russell Hicks is branded one of the ‘Top Six Comics to Watch’ by LA’s Stand Up Talk Magazine. He has appeared on LA based panel show Direct TV’s ‘What’s News?’ and is a regular guest on hit podcasts such as Talkin’ Sh*t with Eddie Ifft.
Headlining the nationally acclaimed student circuit in the United States, Russell regularly takes his hour long solo shows across the country to the biggest universities.
Since moving to the UK audiences have been amazed by his prolific work rate and ability to consistently deliver quality new work night after night. Fast and loose, no two shows are ever the same
“Absolutely smashed it last night. What was most impressive is that he somehow managed to completely improvise for the entire 30 minutes, which I have never seen done before. I have worked in numerous different comedy venues and I have also never seen a comedian get a huge round of applause for simply leaving the green room, which Russell did. I believe he has a bright future in comedy with his unique talent to riff so well.” Bearcat Comedy Club
Having only played his first in the autumn of 2014, Ed has quickly got a reputation as one of the most exciting new performers on the comedy circuit.
At the 2015 Edinburgh Festival he was finalist on the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny contest and in 2017 appeared in the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year final, handpicked by top UK promoters.
In addition to his work as a comedian, Ed has also worked extensively as an actor, with numerous credits to his name.
“Cleary one to watch.” Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke
“Ingenious visual gags, there’s no questioning his crafty intelligence.” Chortle
