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

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.
