Double Sony award winner and Chortle Award Nominee Gary loves each and every gag and you can’t help but be carried away by his infectious charm. He’s like a cheeky schoolboy who can barely hide his glee with each and every punchline. Gary’s the only comic ever to have got two gags in the same top 10 for Dave TV’s Funniest Jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe, and through Twitter he’s become one of the most followed and quoted comedians in the country. Gary is also a regular guest on Mock The Week and has written extensively for TV and Radio including, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, A League Of Their Own, 10’Clock Live, The British Comedy Awards and The News Quiz.
“Expect a cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns” – The Guardian
Former comedy reviewer Fern Brady first tried stand up after the magazine she worked for suggested she write an article where she ‘faked it’ as a comedian. She enjoyed it so much that one year on, she embarked on a career as a stand up making the final of ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2011. Scotland-born, London-based Brady has enjoyed sell-out runs at the last two Edinburgh Festivals and she is about to take her latest show ‘Suffer, Fools!’ on a tour around the UK. Those prone to watching TV may recognise her from 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and The Alternative Comedy Experience.
“Quick-witted acerbic stand up from someone who could soon be a household name” – The Skinny
Steve Day describes himself as Britain’s only deaf comedian, if there are any others he hasn’t heard. For the past eleven years Steve has been performing to huge laughter around the country and abroad, well they tell him the laughter was huge to humour him, he doesn’t know either way. Steve has been described as ‘warm and witty’ by the Scotsman and has received many other rave reviews whilst performing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Chortle gave him five stars in 2007 for Deafy’s Island Discs, a show The Sunday Times called ‘Funny and Moving’. This show toured the UK in 2008, Steve’s third national tour of the UK, and was performed in several countries in Europe and translated into Italian. No-one knows why.
“A very different kind of comedy … something which Day seems particularly proud of, and so he should be” – Three Weeks
Back by popular demand, MC from the night Will Duggan has been performing comedy since 2009 and since then has cemented himself as a dynamic and interesting performer in comedy clubs around the country. He mixes stories and gags with a cheerfully cynical view of the world. Will has provided tour support for Justin Moorhouse, Hal Cruttenden and Gary Delaney and in 2016 he performed his debut solo hour ‘A Man Gathering Fish’ at Edinburgh. As well as performing as a stand up comic Will is a performer and part of the writing team for the Fosters Award winning show Funz & Gamez. An irreverent, shambolic, close to the knuckle Children’s Show that delights children and parents alike.
“Incisively witty material which ploughs genuinely original comedic terrain” – Spotlight Comedy
