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!
