Carey Marx - Headliner
Carey Marx has been a circuit favourite for years, mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischievous and gleeful delivery. His willful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places. This hilarious mix of edgy topics and playful gagsmithery can be seen at all the top clubs across the country with Marx regularly playing Jongleurs, Komedia and The Comedy Store and annually compering Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury Festivals.
Carey has taken shows to numerous Edinburgh Festival Fringes. His most successful festival being 2013, in which he took his new show ‘Intensive Carey’. Carey received an incredible eight 4 and 5 star reviews for his show concerning his ill health over the last year.
‘Carey Marx is a criminally overlooked comedian. He’s an extraordinarily talented stand-up who reaches into the genre’s darkest corners with a tickling stick. Delivering his black thoughts with a cheeky smile, he is an endearing host and only those who want to be offended by what he’s got to say will be offended by what he’s got to say. The rest of us will be in stitches… he makes the world a better place’ Metro
Paul F Taylor - Support
Paul F Taylor is a one of a kind comedian. An instantly watchable performer with the craftsmanship more established acts could only dream of. He is known for his inventive offbeat observational humour and his playfully engaging delivery.
Nominated as GQ Magazine’s comedian of the week, Paul has a reputation of being a superb writer who gleefully combines leftfield one liners with astute observational comedy. Taylor is an original and hilarious act who always leaves audiences begging for more. Paul won the new Act of yhe year award in 2012.
“Gleeful and insistent silliness” Three Weeks
Ravi Holy - Compere
Ravi Holy is the Vicar of Wye by day and a comedian by night. He won the Canterbury Festival’s comedy competition in 2016 and was voted Funniest Vicar by the four Inbetweeners after performing live on the One Show (although to be fair, there were only two other contestants!)
’ I booked Ravi because I knew he would add something different to the night. He succeeded so spectacularly that I took several minutes to reset the atmosphere of the room after he came off stage to make it easier for the next act. Excellent, hilariously funny, can’t wait to have him back!" – Al Cowie, Promoter of Laugh Comedy at the Ram Brewery, Wandsworth
