ZOE LYONS: ENTRY LEVEL HUMAN
This hugely popular comic returns to the Fringe with a fresh crop of quick-fire observational gags, delivered with utter conviction not to mention "proper laugh-out-loud one-liners"(Herald). Zoe’s debut hour at the Edinburgh Festival gained her a nomination for the Perrier Award, and she has hosted the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny Final in Edinburgh for the last four years. As seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Room 101 (BBC One) and regularly heard on BBC Radio 4's News Quiz, Just a Minute, The Now Show and plenty more. Zoe has also been voted Comedian of the Year by both the Chortle website and her own peers.
“Always fizzling with indignation and throwing out a hugely enjoyable mix of brutal put-downs and richly funny stories, Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd.” The Guardian
"Lyons is on top of her game: in command of her material, her audience and her stage." Chortle
JOHN HASTINGS: FLOAT LIKE A BUTTERFLY, JOHN HASTINGS LIKE A BEE
Last year, John Hastings was hit by a car and broke his arm. He then became homeless (his choice) with a long distance girlfriend (her choice) and now has a lot of thoughts on pigeons and bicycles (your choice). Now he's written this comedy show. A tale of displacement, death and denial (don't worry, there are jokes too). As seen on Comedy Central.
Since moving to the UK in 2012 from Canada John Hastings has performed all over America, Canada and all the small scary corners of the United Kingdom and is very much in demand from the top comedy venues, entertaining audiences with his sharp punchlines delivered through his observational storytelling style. He is an Amused Moose Comedy Award-nominated comedian.
"Shockingly good." Montreal Gazette
"A strong calling card from a thoughtful and observant comic with enjoyably wry sensibilities... we're in the hands of an appealing consummate pro." Chortle
"Particularly awesome." San Francisco Examiner
