Josh Howie - Headliner
Josh is a much in-demand stand-up comic, performing regularly at all the major comedy clubs around the UK and has also taken his distinctive brand of humour to India, Ireland, France, China, Thailand, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia and America. In 2012 he was invited to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was filmed for the internationally distributed Just For Laugh’s All Access TV show.
Josh has written and performed three solo shows for the Edinburgh Festival, before sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre. These include his hugely successful debut solo Fringe stand-up show, entitled Chosen, which played to sell out audiences and received rave reviews at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival, and his August 2010 show Josh Howie: Gran Slam, based on his time living with his grandmother. In 2011, Josh returned with I am a Dick.
Excellent, intelligent stand-up… terrific
Brian Damage and Crystal - Support
Wherever they go their baggage goes with them, including several musical instruments (not always musical in their hands!) and many years of experience in the entertainment industry. Much of this baggage spills forth during their unconventional vaudeville style act, punctuated by occasional silly songs, the odd bit of Spanish dancing and loads of belly laughs.
“Wonderful silliness, some cute songs, some political incorrectness, some sick vomit and poo jokes and a lot of originality. It is all done with that intangible panache, subtlety and ability to laugh at one’s self that is quintessential to British humour.” Peter Bleby – Australian Stage
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.
