Stephen Grant - Headliner
Along with his clutch of awards and critical acclaim, Stephen Grant must surely have the right to the title of hardest working comedian in the UK. He is a regular compere of Krater Comedy Club at Komedia, which has won Best Comedy Venue in the South for an unprecedented 7 years. Stephen still finds the time to headline and MC gigs all over the country as well as being a regular guest on The Cutting Edge, deputizing presenter on BBC Southern Counties Radio, warming up and performing on some of the biggest comedy shows on TV and MCing for numerous corporate events.
It is not hard to see why Stephen is so popular, he possesses an energy and intellect which combined make for dynamite comedy. His speed and dynamism create a magical energy which has audiences rapt and hanging onto his every word.
“Right from the word go his audience were in fits of laughter as we were subjected to his relentless comedy… comedy bordering on genius.”* Three Weeks
Michael Fabbri - Support
Michael Fabbri quickly stamped his mark on the UK circuit appearing in the 2003 final of Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny? and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the most promising up and coming comedians on the circuit. A reputation that he is living up to, regularly performing for the best clubs in the country.
“exceptionally funny…extremely sharp…hugely enjoyable” – The Scotsman
Russell Hicks - Compere
Anyone who has seen Russell Hicks knows that it is never the same show twice. Taking a different approach to most comedians, Russell Hicks weaves improvisation with stream of conscious delivery that has moved many audience members to return for two nights in a row. Nothing in this biography can do his act justice other than to say, you just have to see him live.
“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. It did help that we had one member of the audience who looked like the twin brother of Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and provided Russell with so much material to improv on. Based on this one gentlemens comments, Russell created a world where he is doing a West End show about willy-helicopters, the 28th October is now International Toothpaste Day and his performance last night was just a figment of the gentlemans imagination. The audience were at times almost collapsing with laughter on the floor and I was one of them. Watching Russell Hicks last night was reminiscent of watching early Ross Noble on stage.
