Dave Fulton - Headliner
Started comedy back when it was popular and profitable. Decided to stay on past the point of when it wasn’t. It’s the desire to say something original combined with the fear of a civilian day job that perpetuates the illusion of forward progress. The trick is to find the balance point between any financial burdens incurred and the even weightier responsibility of originality. It appears the placement of this fulcrum has come to be the most important decision.
‘(Fulton) represents the tough talking, risk-taking school of yankee comics,……..He’s intelligent, remarkably relaxed on stage and clearly out to create a bit of mischief’ Time Out-London
Alasdair Beckett-King - Support
Alasdair won New Act of the Year (formerly Hackney Empire) in 2014 and has featured on BBC radio as a comedian and sketch writer. He’s performed stand-up across the UK, in the Glastonbury Cabaret Tent and at the Edinburgh Fringe. He knows quite a lot about 19th century magicians. Tourists often ask to have their photo taken with him, presumably impressed by this.
“Delicious writing and exceptional observations” – Corry Shaw, Chortle

“Astonishing, astonishing and astonishing. He simply took the roof of the place leaving people talking about his act all night. His entire 20 minutes was totally improvised based entirely on audience interaction. Brilliant” Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club
