Addy Van De Borgh - Headliner
Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material. His ability was noticed immediately by the BBC and he appeared on the ‘Stand-up Show’ on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian.
He has subsequently appeared on ‘The World Stands Up’ and ‘Live at the Comedy Store’ for Comedy Central, and the BBC3 series ‘Brain Candy. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of ‘TV Meltdown’ for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher, has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including multiple appearances on the legendary ‘Loose Ends’ on Radio 4.
‘An excellent stand-up with intelligence and wit’ The Guardian
Ben Norris - Support
The term circuit legend is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades. Other interesting facts about Ben: he’s the cousin of actor Martin Freeman and also the father of triplets (2 girls and a boy)
Ben has recently seen supporting Ed Byrne on his national tour. Ben’s TV credits include “Never Mind The Buzzcocks”, “They Think It’s All Over” and “Mock The Week”

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.
