Markus Birdman - Headliner
Birdman is a top comedy act hailing from New Zealand. He is a fine storyteller and delivers killer punchlines.
‘Birdman cuts a dashing figure, elegant, smart, theatrical. A hugely entertaining hour of thoughtful, heartfelt, mature comedy, performed with great energy and dynamism’ Chortle‘Meditative but not mournful, he makes us feel part of his story. Hugely enjoyable and lots of ruddy good gags’ The Scotsman
Christian Reilly - Support
At the age of 15, Christian Reilly joined a band to get laid. The Salvation Army had different ideas…
As former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian’s career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain.
Now a solo stand-up performer and playing all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. He recently wrote and performed for ‘That Was Then This Is Now’ (BBC Radio 2) as musical counterpart to Richard Herring and Emma Kennedy, as well as giving his improvisation skills an outing on Radio 2’s ‘Jammin’.
“His stand-up is witty and heaving with punchlines…will win over all but the hardest hearts and minds.” Chortle
“This genuine, trendy, confident comedian has a natural talent for risky jokes, song and quips which you can’t help laughing at! If you get the chance to see Reilly live, do so. He is not to be missed!” Funny.co.uk
Tony Cowards - Compere
Tony has been performing stand up comedy all over the country since 2004 and is originally from sleepy Suffolk but now lives in rural Wiltshire, where he sits around in his pyjamas, drinking tea, eating Jaffa cakes and playing with his cat whilst training as a world class procrastinator for the 2016 Olympics.
Tony is a quickfire joke teller (described by the List magazine as a “Pun-osaurus”) whose one-liners cover a wide spectrum of subjects, his quick wit has made him a sought after act throughout the UK.
Tony Cowards is a great act who sets the audience up perfectly, with a nice self deprecating manner
– Jo Caulfield, Radio 4 and ‘Mock the Week’
