SIMON MUNNERY
Described by the Guardian as one of “comedy’s enduring eccentrics”, Simon has established himself as one of the best alternative comedians there is. Winner of the prestigious Golden Rose of Montreux for his wonderful TV series Attention Scum in 2001 he has also popped up on Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle and Radio 4’s News Quiz

“He’s nothing less than a genius” – The Guardian
“There are more brilliant ideas in one of Simon Munnery’s shows than most comics will manage in a lifetime” –The Times
“Genius is a grossly overused and even more grossly misused word – which I am about to use. I think Simon Munnery might just be a comic genius”- The Scotsman *****

DANIEL SIMONSEN
Daniel’s debut hour “Champions” netted him the Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer in 2012. Other achievements since leaving his native Norway to pursue his stand up career include winning So You Think You’re Funny (2008), reaching the finals of the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year and supporting Simon Amstell on tour. He also popped up on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three).

“Exquisitely crafted gags and out-and-out surrealism, at its best like a fusion of Emo Philips and Vic & Bob” – the Guardian

“No doubt that Simonsen has proven himself a talent to keep an eye on” –Time Out

“An outstanding comedian” – Fringe Guru

SARA PASCOE
A regular on Channel 4’s Stand Up for the Week Sara is one of the most promising young comics around. Her credits also include Live at The Apollo, Twenty Twelve and The Thick Of It, as well as a celebrated run at this years’ Edinburgh Festival.

“Pascoe is that rare beast – a comic with more to say than her time will allow, and a real zest for saying it” – **** The Guardian

“Sharp, unpredictable, and often brutally funny” – The Skinny

**** – The Telegraph

BRIDGET CHRISTIE
Surrealist housewife and Radio 4 favourite, Christie is the new forefront of donkey-based feminist humour.

She has starred in a number of TV and radio comedies including Cardinal Burns on E4, Harry Hill’s “Little Internet Show”, Sarah Millican’s Support Group, Miranda Hart’s House Party and Dilemma.

Her latest show, War Donkey also featured on The Culture Show as one of Sue Perkins’ Top 5 Edinburgh shows and received 10 four star reviews. It was also one of GQ magazine’s Ten Essential Edinburgh shows. The Arts Desk said Bridget had “the best fart joke on the Fringe by a country mile”, which has made her very proud.

PAT CAHILL
Pat is well known for his offbeat humour which has seen him win a bag full of awards and even appeared on Chris Moyles’ Comedy Empire (BBC three). Pat has won Chortle Best Newcomer 2012, New Act of the Year (Formerly Hackney Empire) 2012 and The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2011. He was also a finalist for The BBC New Comedy Award Final. He’s a unique and exciting talent.

“Imagine a cross between Sean Lock and Eddie Izzard and you might be getting somewhere, but nowhere close.” – Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

MC
JACK DE’ATH
He will bring a game or two possibly. Maybe a joke.
