Act 1: Dan Nightingale
Seen on recently on Sky TV’s John Bishop’s Only Joking, Dan is one of stand-ups brightest stars. A natural on stage, a total original and one of comedy’s most exciting secrets. Preston born Dan combines cutting observation with his natural playfulness, raucous banter with beautiful surrealness, and great gags with heart felt ramblings. His comedy is genuine, creative, honest, unpredictable, original and above all… funny as hell.

Act 2: 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.

“An absolute delight.” The Skinny

Act 3: Roger Monkhouse
Roger Monkhouse is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene. A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger’s trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit. A fine topical writer and performer, and master of sharp observational comedy, Roger is a regular member of the prestigious and critically acclaimed ‘Cutting Edge’ team at the London Comedy Store.
