Dates and Line Ups

Friday 4th January

MC Tez Ilyas

A mischievous and engaging comic, he tackles a variety of topics with an intelligent mind and a flair for deconstructing modern society while subverting audience’s expectations. His playful style and cheeky personality, along with a wry wit led him to win the coveted London Comedy Store’s King Gong on his first attempt, as well as reaching the finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards. Star of BBC Radio 4’s TEZ Talks, BBC Two’s ‘Live from the BBC’ and BBC Three’s ‘Man Like Mobeen’.

‘Sartorially stylish and winningly cheeky’ Chortle

Lost Voice Guy

BGT 2018 winner Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy, is disabled but not silent. Born with Cerebral Palsy, complications at birth resulted in Lee losing his ability to speak. Undaunted, Lee started performing stand up comedy in 2012 using an iPad tablet computer, and after an unprecedented meteoric rise and publicity from local and national press, is now headlining comedy clubs across the country.

‘A wonderful comedian’ Matt Lucas

‘A very funny guy’ Ross Noble

Joanne McNally

Ireland’s fastest rising comedy star, nominated for multiple Dublin Fringe Festival awards including Best Performer, Best Production & the First Fortnight Award.

Steve Gribbin

‘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.

 
Friday 1st February

MC Roger Monkhouse

A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger Monkhouse`s trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit. Supremely confident, with audience banter down to an art form, Roger is happy to improvise freely but has no shortage of first class material in his armoury. A master of observational comedy with a routine that is universally and unfailingly hysterical. A sought after compere and headliner across the UK and internationally.

“Unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punch lines, seemingly, out of thin air” Chortle

Noel James

Welsh comic wizard described as surreal, absurd, intelligent and somehow strangely attractive, but then he would say that, wouldn’t he?! His 2001 and 2002 Edinburgh shows received rave reviews, catapulting him into the upper echelons of the comedy circuit.

‘Liberates the lunatic side to our personalities – brilliantly!’ Time Out

Richard Massara

Actor and stand up comedian who has worked some of the country’s top comedy clubs, including The Stand, Leicester Square Theatre, and The Comedy Store.

‘A very funny guy, with a wicked line in smut… produced a lot of laughter and earned lots of applause’ BSH Magazine

John Moloney

John Moloney has been a professional comedian for over twenty years, and has entertained audiences across the globe with his crafted, intelligent and original stand-up routines. John was also delighted to be nominated as ‘Best Live Stand-Up’ at the British Comedy Awards.

‘One of the best things about watching live comedy is seeing a comedian get his second wind of inspiration. Sometimes an established comic suddenly finds something extra, and one of these comics is John Moloney. He’s been a headliner at top clubs like the Comedy Store for years – yet his comedy has acquired more depth, as well as an even sharper edge.’ The Guardian

 
Friday 1st March

MC Mick Ferry

One of the finest comperes around, at ease bantering with a crowd but with no shortage of first-class material, Mick performs regularly at The Comedy Store in London and Manchester, as well as being sought after at comedy venues across the UK and internationally.  A supremely talented and versatile performer, Mick is also an esteemed member of The Cutting Edge at the London Comedy Store; a furiously paced, topical team show in which Mick continues to hone his talent for off-the-cuff, satirical and topical comedy, wowing audiences with his spontaneous acerbic outbursts and razor sharp wit.

‘Absolute legend, incredibly funny’ Jason Manford

Jason Cook

Be ready for pretty much anything when Jason Cook takes to the stage. Behind his cheerful Geordie exterior lurks a dark, sharp comedic mind capable of taking an unsuspecting audience to places they didn’t want to go. Dwarves, newspaper vendors, the toilets at raves, true-to-life stories that drag you in and won’t let go. Cook is close to the edge but always intriguing and blessed with the sort of charm that’ll have you laughing in spite of yourself.

‘Few people have his warmth and spontaneity; it’s an act you’d gladly watch again and again’ The Skinny 

Daliso Chaponda

Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars and was a finalist on Britain’s Got Talent 2017. He has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticize the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything. He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader.

‘Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended’ BBC
