Your acts for the evening...

GEORGE EGG


"...hugely entertaining" THE GUARDIAN

Wildly brandishing the worlds' second largest briefcase containing a battery of ridiculous props, George bounds onto the stage to perform one of the most original, interesting, innovative, and sweetly whimsical comedy performances you are ever likely to see. He has been hailed as 'a Tommy Cooper for the twenty first century' and through tears of laughter you'll see why. A true cross between alternative stand-up comedy and music hall variety.

George Egg has been a professional stand-up comedian for the last two decades. He has an extremely successful solo show with which he has toured in Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, France and of course extensively in the United Kingdom, both on the stage and on the television, and more recently has been the support act for Lee Mack, Mickey Flannagan and Jack Dee.

"It is refreshing to encounter a performer who really is unique" THE TELEGRAPH

"My find of the Fringe" THE INDEPENDENT

"Absolutely glorious" THE SCOTSMAN



AMIR KHOSHSOKHAN

Amir is a truly original comedian with a hypnotic, compelling, story-telling style that draws an audience. This slightly awkward, subtle and off-beat style of comedy captures an audience’s attention before he’s even said a word. When he does eventually start speaking, Amir takes his crowd on one hell of a journey.

Amir’s natural ability and comedic manner has seen him reach the finals of many prestigious competitions: So You Think You're Funny, Leicester Square New Comedian, BBC New Comedy Awards and English Comedian of the Year before going on to win the title of the Piccadilly Comedy Club’s New Comedian Award.

Amir recently supported Harry Hill and Tony Law.

“So compelling is Khoshsokhan’s curious manner that even the most unpromising crowd seems utterly mesmerised” ★★★★ FEST

“Amir Khoshsokhan made a virtue of his rigid performance with a forensically meticulous routine in which every elongated pause was precision times, every line leading up to something with further impact.” – CHORTLE



TOM TAYLOR

Multi-award winning comedian Tom Taylor has received high praise from audiences and critics alike. His unique brand of musical comedy is smart and silly in equal measure and he boasts an impressive stock of quirky, and very funny, musical one-liners.

In 2013 Tom reached the final of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition, the following year he was a finalist in the Hobgoblin Comedy Award and in 2015 he took home the award for Comedian of the Year at the inaugural Great Yorkshire Fringe. More recently he picked up the Audience Favourite Award at the Musical Comedy Awards 2017.

A favourite of live bookers across the UK, Tom has also supported Simon Munnery, John Kearns and Abandoman on tour and recently performed on Radio 2 and Radio 4 as part of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award.

"Beautifully daft" THE SUNDAY TIMES

"An absolute delight" THE SKINNY
