ANGELOS EPITHEMIOU - CAN I JUST SHOW YOU WHAT I'VE GOT

Angelos is up in Edinburgh to do his stuff and to stand in front of people for about 13 days, maybe more if he can get time off at the stables. Come and see him talk and prepare his speech for the UN.

The creation of Dan Renton Skinner – a member of the Dutch Elm Conservatoire Sketch group – Angelos Epithemiou is the owner of a burger van who wants to break into show business.  He got his break in 2009, when he became a permanent team member on the revival of Shooting Stars, replacing Johnny Vegas on Ulrika Jonsson’s Team B, before becoming the scorer.

"Plenty to relish here." Evening Standard

ERICH MCELROY - RADICAL CENTRIST

With politics moving to extremes and into every aspect of our lives, Erich McElroy finds another way. The only true centrist comedian at the Fringe, Erich is rising up to demand incremental change and reasoned debate. He’s crossing over the left/right divide in a way that’ll make you stop – or at least slow down. Heard on BBC's Breaking the News, Radio 4’s Moral Maze and seen on BBC Breakfast, Good Morning Britain, and Sky News.

ROB KEMP - MOONRAKER 2: MOONRAKERER

The closest I get to remembering my dreams are the ideas that occur during the thin veil between sleep and awake, where your mind wanders unimpeded and undirected. This is a collection of those ideas. Some will be funny. Some won't make sense. There will be some stuff on Belgian Surrealist René Magritte and a song full of penis synonyms about the Icelandic Phallological Society. Rob Kemp is the multiple award-winning, Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer-nominated creator of The Elvis Dead. This is not that. This is a new thing.

"Twisted genius." Sunday Times

"An instant Fringe cult classic." The List

"The archetypal outsider hit: unlikely, made on a shoestring with love, and weirdly inspired." Guardian

DAISY EARL - FAIRY ELEPHANT

Hotly anticipated debut from promising newcomer. Winner of Scottish Comedian of the Year and Chortle's Best Newcomer. Daisy woke up on her 30th Birthday deeply dissatisfied. Why isn't she thinner, more successful, and blonde? And why does that cow on Instagram have it all? This year is going to be different; get sober, stop crying in public and for god's sake get a boyfriend! This is one woman's attempt to change everything about herself:

IMRAN YUSUF

Imran Yusuf is renowned as a skilful raconteur who seamlessly weaves socio-political satire with heartfelt introspection in his charmingly endearing trademark styling. Languid, punchy, cheeky and utterly loveable, Imran has established himself as a truly unique voice in the world of comedy.

Imran is of East-African Indian descent, born in Mombasa, Kenya but raised in London with a brief stint studying illegally in the USA. Imran has travelled much of the world including Israel/Palestine, Jordan and Saudi Arabia during the Lebanon Crisis in 2006 in an all-encompassing pilgrimage for which he quit his job and spent his savings.

In 2010, he presented his debut solo show at the Edinburgh Festival.  The show, “An Audience with Imran Yusuf”, was part of the Laughing Horse Free Festival and it was Imran’s intention to develop his craft and material at the Fringe whilst at the same time keeping under the radar of the UK Comedy Industry and Press. However, word about the show got out and within a week Imran had gained the first of a collection of 5 star reviews, which led to him being nominated for Best Newcomer in the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award 2010 (He was the first performer from The Free Festival to be nominated in the history of the Awards). All of this whilst fasting between sunrise and sunset in observation of Ramadan.

Since then Imran has appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, completed several UK tours and been instrumental in the success of the first ever “HaLOL” comedy night to celebrate the growing talent of British Muslim comedy in the UK.

"Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny.” Time Out

Sindhu Vee is most likely the tallest Indian woman you’ll ever meet. The daughter of Indian parents, a London-based mother, and bearer of half a PhD, it is rumoured but unverified, that Sindhu practised the dark arts of investment banking before making her parents proud by becoming a stand-up. She devotes all the time she has left over from raising her 3 children (and a bizarrely gigantic labrador) to comedy and suffering facial peels. 

Since bursting onto the UK stand-up comedy scene a few years ago she has charmed and beguiled audiences with her sharp tongue, accurate home truths and totally unique life experience.  It’s no surprise then that she was nominated for a Best Newcomer gong at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, nor that she’s popping up all over our TV screens on iconic shows such as Have I Got News For You and QI.  She might still be new to stand-up, but she has the savvy and rootedness of a much-loved veteran.  It’s no surprise that she’s already selling out her debut national tour, so best catch her at our wee gaff before she’s selling out huge theatres!

Josie has performed stand-up around the world and her eighth solo stand-up show, Something Better, started in full swing in September 2016 with a sell-out two weeks at the Soho Theatre in London, followed by a two-week run at the Barrow Street Theatre New York. In 2017, Josie has continued her success on the road, headlining at San Francisco’s Sketchfest and RIOT LA in the US, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival in Australia, and highlighted by a sold-out show at the Duchess Theatre in London’s West End.

His third show Teztify once again delivered a spectacularly powerful, provocative and brilliantly funny hour of topical stand up, delivering to packed out audiences night after night.

Tez has since appeared on Live at the Apollo, The Last Leg, Mock the Week, Live From the BBC, Man Like Mobeen, Live from the Comedy Store, Kevin Hart’s Live from Montreal, The Now Show and many more.  His 2018 Ted Talk Made in Britain – which explored Tez being both British and Muslim, was so successful that it began trending on Twitter

SOUTHBANK AWARDS BREAKTHROUGH NOMINEE 2018

BBC CAROLINE AHERNE BURSARY WINNER 2018

EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARDS BEST SHOW NOMINEE 2017

HERALD ANGEL AWARD WINNER 2017

Sophie Willan makes bold, unapologetic work that is raucously funny and completely original. Her work is political to the core, but it doesn’t feel like it. With a razor sharp and totally authentic comic voice, she exudes confidence and charm.

In 2014 Sophie toured her first solo theatre show to over 70 venues across the UK, including a total sell out run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In 2015 her refreshing comic style took her to several competition finals including the Magners New Comedian of the Year, where she was crowned the winner. The following year she took her debut stand up show On Record, based on her experiences of growing up in and out of the care system, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A total sell out run and phenomenal critical acclaim followed, with a smash hit nationwide tour in 2017 and a commission to adapt the show into a BBC Radio 4 series (coming in 2018).

Sophie’s second show Branded was one of the big hits of 2017, achieving another total sell out run at the Fringe, a Herald Angel Award and a nomination for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2017.

"One of the best I’ve ever seen at the Fringe at any time in the last two decades.” The New European ★★★★★

"Who runs the world? On this form, it definitely should be Sophie Willan.” The Herald ★★★★

"Frank and extremely funny.” Evening Standard ★★★★

"It is the precision of her writing and nuanced outlook that helps define the first-rate comedian she is becoming.” The Skinny ★★★★

JOHN-LUKE ROBERTS

John-Luke Roberts is a comedian, actor and writer.

He has written for Have I Got News For You, Newzoids and Nevermind the Buzzcocks, and received the BBC Radio Comedy Writers Bursary in 2009.

John-Luke trained under Philippe Gaulier. He has created 6 solo shows for the Edinburgh Fringe between 2010 and 2018 which have all been critically acclaimed with Soho Theatre transfers.  In our opinion there are at least three of these which absolutely should have been nominated for the main award, but it seems JLR is turning into a bit of a pre-Revenant Dicaprio when it comes to awards…

He is the co-founder of hugely successful Alternative Comedy Memorial Society, which he hosts with co-co-founder (also a co-founder) and nemesis Thom Tuck. The ACMS aims to celebrate Noble Failure, and give a home to the strange and different in live comedy.  With this night as his comedic and intellectual headquarter, John-Luke has proven himself to be one of the most unique, versatile and joyously absurd acts of the past decade.  Whether you love bizarre one-liners, oddball audience interaction or high-brow musings, you’ll love this one-of-a-kind act.

“Killer gags and glorious idiocy.” The Guardian

“Mind-warping.  Brilliantly follows through on his own absurd logic…relentlessly funny.” List

“Alternative comedy close to its pinnacle.” Chortle

Winners of the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, Musical Comedy Awards and the Adelaide Fringe Festival “Best Comedy – Newcomer” award, Abandoman create musical songs and sketches at lightening speed based on audience interaction. Come to the show, drop your suggestions in the ring and watch as Abandoman make musical magic. No two shows will ever be the same.

The last four years have seen Abandoman tour with multi-platinum artist Ed Sheeran, headline comedy stages at every major UK music festival (including Glastonbury, Latitude, Bestival, Leeds & Reading), host London’s St Patrick’s Day event to over 15,000 revellers in Trafalgar Square, and be named out of over 2000 acts as the Sunday Times’ “Best Musical Act” of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014.

Abandoman perform extensively in both the UK and abroad. They have sold out runs at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and this year will perform in Hong Kong, America, and numerous destinations in Europe. Their most recent show, “Hot Desk” sold out two years in a row to a capacity audience at one of the Edinburgh Festival’s largest venues, and has since toured all over the world.

A VERY SPECIAL, VERY FAMOUS MYSTERY GUEST!

A VERY SPECIAL, VERY FAMOUS MYSTERY GUEST!

We've got to be a little bit coy and cryptic on this one, but safe to say our guest this week is one of the best observational comics to emerge in the UK over the past decade.  He's a master at wringing every last drop of comedy from any subject, as well as having a lightning quick comedy mind, making him one of the most in demand and highly regarded comedians in the UK for both his live stand-up and TV work.  After fast establishing himself on the live circuit a decade ago, supporting huge comic talent such as Stephen Merchant, Kevin Bridges, Michael McIntyre and Alan Carr, he has gone on to have two sell-out UK tours and two sell-outs runs at the Edinburgh Festival, as well as an Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nomination.

Since then he has become a regular on our screens, making appearances on Live At The Apollo, Would I Lie To You, Have I Got News For You, Celebrity Mastermind, QI, Mock the Week and 8 Out of 10 Cats.  If that weren’t enough, he has also received much praise hosting for Xfm and Radio 5’s Fighting Talk and been part of a team that has received multiple BAFTA nominations and RTS awards for a pretty damn famous show on one of the UK's biggest TV channels.  Safe to say, seeing him up close in our wee club is an opportunity not to be missed!

“The sort of gentle confidence, low-key charisma and one-for-all-the-family charm which could see him selling out enormous stadiums in a couple of years.” The Times

“His talent for comedy is priceless.” The Evening Standard

“This is one of the most individual, accomplished, hilarious and unforgettable hours I have had this year.” The Scotsman

JOHN ROBERSTON

Comedian, author, columnist, satirist, professional troublemaker, multimedia artist, recreational sadist and anarchic improviser, John is an astonishing 21st century renaissance man.  He has toured the world with his 1980s text-based RPG phenomenon 'The Dark Room' and blown the bloody doors of most clubs with his super-charged whirlwind act.

“A manic and quick-witted revelation… if you only see one Perth-born set this year, make it John Robertson.” The Scotsman

“Stylish, alternative, funny.” Chortle

“Brilliant, bemusing and bloodthirsty.” Metro

DARREN HARRIOT

Darren Harriot is an act who is very much coming into his moment.  After gaining a nod for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017 he has already appeared on BBC Radio 4's News Quiz, Live at the Apollo and Russell Howard's Stand-Up Central.   A confident performer with a captivating charm, Darren’s comedy deals with everything from subverting stereotypes, to everyday observations, to that juiciest of topics, religion – all with a cutting edge.

“Passionate, articulate, witty.” **** Evening Standard

“This sharp debut explores his many contradictions with prime-time warmth. Watch him.” **** The Sunday Times

JASPER CROMWELL-JONES

Jasper Cromwell-Jones is a hapless explorer who retells the stories of his treacherous climbing expeditions.  This wonderfully buffoonish creation of comic Joe Bor gives a tongue-in-cheek homage to works such as Touching The Void, 127 Hours, and Between a Rock and a Hard Place and combines it with our love-to-hate favourite posh-idiot characters evocative of Made in Chelsea and the London Mayoral Elections. Jasper is lovable and laughable in equal measure.

Character creator, Joe Bor, currently does TV warm up for ‘The Graham Norton Show’ and Mock The Week and has done TV warm up on a range of shows including ‘Alan Carr Chatty Man’ and ’8 Out of 10 Cats’. He regularly performs at top comedy clubs around the country.

“Very, very funny.” Harry Hill

“The high gag rate puts many other character comics to shame.” Guardian

AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST: 

BEN VAN DER VELDE

Standing a statuesque five foot five inches high (not in heels) and weighing in at eleven stone (on a good day) Ben is the current light-middleweight contender for compering champion of North London.

"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle

"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.”  Huffington Post

CARL DONNELLY

http://www.carldonnelly.co.uk/

TWO TIME EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD NOMINEE

Carl is one of the finest storytellers on the circuit - his shows are full of freewheeling whimsy and affable daftness, plus you're never more than 20 seconds away from a killer punchline!

Carl started performing stand-up in 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting young comedians. His conversational, silly sense of humour saw him win a host of awards (Chortle Best Newcomer 2007, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007 among others) and become a regular at all of the finest comedy clubs in the UK and Ireland.

In 2009, Carl performed his debut solo show Relax Everyone, it’s Carl Donnelly! at the Edinburgh Fringe for which he was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. Since then, Carl has returned to Edinburgh with three further solo shows, including his 2013 Fosters Comedy Award nominated one.

Recently, Carl has been developing as an international act, with a successful tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2013 and a second in 2015, as well as performing at the biggest comedy festivals in the world (Montreal Just for Laughs, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Kilkenny Cat Laughs etc).

“Donnelly has developed a style that is the antithesis of the loud, sweaty, manic comic so prevalent on the telly and live tours at the moment. This is stand up with valium: near horizontal levels of louche that take the mundane stories of everyday life and turns them into stretches of self deprecating silliness.” The Guardian
