Back by very popular demand Adam Bloom is undoubtedly one of Britain’s most exciting and original stand up comedians. He has performed sell-out solo shows at the ‘96, ’97, ’98, ’99, 2001, 2004 & 2007 Edinburgh Festivals and has performed a twenty-nine date, sell-out tour of Britain. Since 2003, Adam has been commissioned to provide addition material for over 30 other comedians, making him one of the most prolific writers of stand up working today. TV credits include Mock The Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Russell Howard’s Good News.
“He’s been one of my favourite stand-ups for about ten years. Bloom not only has meticulous, brilliant lines, but also an intense and fragile honesty” – Ricky Gervais

A unique mixture of one-liners and Scandinavian-tinged stories has earned Olaf the purely fictitious title of ‘Sweden’s eighth funniest comedian’.
At Edinburgh last year his debut show ‘Olaf Falafel and The Cheese Of Truth’ won critical acclaim and award nominations, and in the last two years his jokes have been included on all major ‘Edinburgh’s Best Jokes’ lists. As well as finding comedic success onstage, Falafel has also enjoyed online fame with his short viral videos which include a croissant-coiffured talking Donald Trump puppet, slices of truth telling cheese being thrown onto newspapers, the Bee Gees hiding in his beard and dial -up modem opera singers.
“A barrage of absurdist humour and sharp one-liners” – Ed Fringe Review
