Nathan Caton - Headliner
Multi award-winning comedian Nathan Caton has been active on the UK comedy circuit since the tender age of 19. He excels in combining both personal, confessional material with up-to-date social and political anecdotes. This has won him numerous credits and plaudits over the years and has made him one of the hottest rising young stars on the circuit.
Caton’s first Edinburgh show in 2009 entitled Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ got him rave reviews from critics including The Guardian, EdFest and Three Weeks and earned him guest writing spots with BBC Radio.
After doing his second Edinburgh show entitled Breakfast At Stephanie’s to similar praise Nathan is continuing to gig up and down the country and is also working on a pilot for BBC Radio 4.
" Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene ", Fest
" laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media " The Guardian
Richard Morton - Support
Described as “possibly Newcastle’s finest export since the famous brown ale” and certainly more consistent than its football team, Richard Morton has nailed the twin talents of musicianship and comedy into one perfectly suited package.
This livewire Geordie comic is full of surprises and manic energy, bounding around the stage like an overgrown child on a massive sugar rush. A former winner of Time Out Comedian of the Year, Richard Morton’s amiable manner belies a razor sharp talent and with some acutely witty and well-defined and varied observations, he tackles a plethora of life’s situations in gags, tales, and some of his hilarious and occasional risque songs. No subject matter is clearly safe from being put to a tune. A big favourite at the Edinburgh Festival since making his debut in 1998, Richard Morton has enjoyed a host of sell-out runs at the famous Assembly Rooms while also whipping up other comedy festivals including Montreal and Kilkenny, and hard-to-please The Reading and Leeds Music Festival crowds. A founder member of The Comedy Store’s Cutting Edge Show and a consumate comedian, Richard Morton can play to and entertain audiences of any size, from corporate laugh-ins to sweaty clubs and sold-out theatres. He has enjoyed and endured several nationwide UK tours with the likes of Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jo Brand, Lily Savage and Phill Jupitus as well as in his own right. Blessed or cursed with endless energy, Richard Morton performs almost every night of the week and shows no sign of waning after nearly 20 years at the top of the comedy tree. A favourite of Channel 5 from its inception, he even hosted his own show Richard Morton Live At The Comedy Store

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
