Paul McCaffrey

Star of Live at the Apollo, Impractical Jokers, Russell Howards Good News and Stand up Central, Paul McCaffrey has also been seen on The Dog Ate My Homework and Channel 4’s 5o Funniest. Paul has recently appeared on major UK tours with two of Britain’s foremost stand ups, Sean Lock and Kevin Bridges – playing to more than half a million people in Arenas and theatres to great critical acclaim. He has also been the support act for Michael Mcintyre, John Bishop and Lee Mack. 2019 saw McCaffrey take to the road for his first solo headline tour ‘I thought I’d have grown out of this by now’, playing to packed houses across the UK. This spring he’ll be hitting the road again with his hilarious new show LEMON.

“Never anything short of gut-bustingly hilarious” – GQ

Mark Simmons

Mark is an exceptional one-liner comedian. His solo shows at Edinburgh festival, One-Linererer (he adds an ‘er’ each year) are always a huge hit, with sell out shows every day. The show has been nominated for Best Show by the Amused Moose Comedy Awards, and his jokes regularly make the ‘Top ten Jokes’ of the Fringe lists. Mark is constantly on the rise, and since being in the finals of several noteworthy competitions, he has supported Seann Walsh, Rob Beckett and Rob Brydon on their national tours, and has also supported the likes of Michael McIntyre, Sean Lock and Jack Dee. Mark’s TV presence is also growing, with his most recent outing being a guest on Mock the Week at Christmas.

“Perfectly timed, clever one-liners” - Leicester Mercury

Matt Bragg

In three years of performing stand-up Matt has been nominated for Petfringe Comedian of The Year, been a finalist in Jason Manford’s New Act of The Year, supported Harry Hill and Clinton Baptiste (Phoenix Nights) and has appeared at some of the biggest clubs in the country. Currently a finalist in the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, Matt had the honour of being selected to perform at the prestigious ‘Big Value’ showcase every night at Edinburgh Festival last year. With a calm and reassuring stage presence, blisteringly sharp and hilariously funny jokes, Matt Bragg is a comedic force to be reckoned with.

“Great stuff, excellent gags!” – Harry Hill

Mark Olver

He’s back! Once regular MC Mark Olver has been so sought after as a TV warm-up that we haven’t been able to have him at Travestees for a while. Mark’s warm-up credits include 8 Out of 10 Cats, Jonathan Ross, Vicar of Dibley, Have I Got News For You and Deal or No Deal. He also regularly comperes and headlines for comedy clubs and promoters all over the UK and has supported such acts as Russell Howard and Lee Mack on national tours.

“Cheerful and funny” – The Guardian

 

As well as these four acts we will also be treated to a short spot by comedy newcomer Stuart Blakeledge, a slightly mad, slightly inebriated (usually) story teller from the wilds of Hampshire.
