Dates and Line Ups

Friday 6th September

 

MC Stephen Bailey

Stephen Bailey is a comedian, presenter, television personality and writer, whose friendly and open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming acts in comedy at the moment. As well as being a working-class, ginger, gay, northern comic, he is also a black belt in Tae Kwon-Do, has a degree in Languages AND loves a conspiracy theory (preferably involving a celebrity  and a cucumber).

 

Rachel Jackson

Rachel is an Edinburgh native with a quick mind and a sharp tongue. She has made somewhat of a name for herself in Scotland and is renowned for her fearless style and candid yet loveable demeanour. She has developed several sketches for the BBC culminating in a web series entitled Bunny Boiler for BBC Three which she also wrote and was received with critical acclaim. She performed her debut hour at The Edinburgh Fringe last year and wowed audiences and critics alike. Earning rave reviews and many new fans.

 

Peter Brush

A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.

 

Raymond Mearns

Whether he is engaged in super quick audience interaction or telling a hilarious shaggy dog story, Raymond Mearns is one of the UK’s finest circuit comedians. Raymond Mearns. With a blinding talent for improvisation, Raymond is renowned as one of the nations top comperes and this is underlined by the fact he is a regular at the nations top comedy venues!
