Stefano Paolini - Headliner
Since receiving the runner-up accolade in Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny Award 2001 and in BBC’s New Comedy Award 2002, Stefano has had a constant stream of TV and radio work, which he juggles with Stand up gigging.
Stefano is a popular face on the UK comedy circuit with his speciality impressions of people, musical sounds and animals always being a hit with audiences. The wicked beat box section of the act is worth the entry fee on it’s own.
“A remarkable repertoire of voices and sounds”- The Stage
“ACE…….an obvious star”- The Scotsman
Pierre Hollins - Support
His relaxed amiability is defined by a compelling conversational style and absurd guitar posturing. His ‘songs’ are jokes that rhyme, set to a guitar backbeat, never travelling down the easy route of song parodies. He covers topics from love and hate, to sex and politics with a totally original voice, delivering his material with charm and irrelevance.
‘An unsung hero of new comedy. Don’t miss this true professional at work. Bloody funny.’ TIME OUT
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.
