Gareth Richards

EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD NOMINEE FOR BEST NEWCOMER 2010
RUNNER UP OF AMUSED MOOSE LAUGH OFF 2007
FINALIST IN LEICESTER MERCURY COMEDIAN OF THE YEAR 2008

Gareth Richards did his first stand-up comedy gig aboard “The Wibbly-Wobbly Boat” a notoriously rowdy venue in South London in 2004. Since then he has performed all over the UK pedalling his own unique brand of edgily surreal jokes and one-liners, and stories based on true events.

In 2008 he was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award, and later won a place as part of the Comedy Reserve, the Edinburgh Festival showcase run by the Pleasance. Previously he was a finalist in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2007 competition, and a runner-up in both the final of You Must Be Joking (Newbury Comedy Festival), and the Amused Moose Laugh-Off, held at the Edinburgh festival.

“Gareth Richards comes across as an effortlessly assured act…exceptionally inspired and truly memorable.”
Steve Bennett, Chortle
“You are thrilled to be made part of this fantastic comedy…They can call me a witch again any time for theirs is the best show I have seen on the Free Fringe.”
Three Weeks
“The first act to raise some belly laughs was Gareth Richards, whose quick-fire gags really picked up the pace. The set was delivered with the kind of charisma that could pull off everything from the dodgiest pun to jokes about ethnic cleansing. A definite face for the future.”

Andrew Watts

Andrew Watts is an “exquisitely funny” (Time Out) comedian, with a distinctive style and very original material. His posh boy humour is intelligent without distancing himself from the audience. Lawyer turned comedian, Andrew is extremely likable and invariably wins a crowd over as he canters through challenging subjects like an apologetic tsunami. He is also famous for once buying lavender from a drug dealer in Brixton. His 2014 Edinburgh show ‘Feminism for Chaps’ received critical acclaim (***** Chortle) and a full house all run, when he then went on to take to New Zealand Comedy Festival. His two previous full-length Edinburgh shows, ‘I wish I could be like Andrew Watts’ and ‘Born to Be Mild’, both received four-star reviews. As seen on ITV’s Stand-Up Hero and Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up.

Tom Glover

Following in the footsteps of the West Country’s finest comedy talent, Tom has been growing in the dark depths of the south west where he is a regular MC and headliner for those rooms no-one else can afford to drive to.

Gigging since 2010 to everyone from students to the ladies of the WI this plucky young man has developed a knack of winning over any crowd with his tales of life on the outside and his observations on the minutiae of the everyday. And if that’s not your thing he also does funny accents and pulls silly faces.

“His interaction with the crowd is perfect. An ability to create great mental images… great ad-libbed jokes. There is a strong future for this fresh-faced comic.”
Ed Fringe Review
“Absolutely brilliant compere”
Joel Dommett
“Going to be a comedy monster. Reminds me of Russell Howard and Jon Richardson when they were climbing the ladder, with his own style.”
Matt Price, Comedian
