Lee Kyle, Rik Carranza, and host Andy Fury
In his never ending quest not to have a proper job, Lee Kyle spent time as part of an all male Spice Girls tribute act before spending a decade as a professional wrestler.
Managing the difficult trick of being both odd and relatable, he did a show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 that he heard was well received but he doesn't read reviews because his psyche is too fragile to handle them so he isn't totally sure what they said.
Armed with props and a rapid gag rate he cuts a confident, if off-beat figure on stage. His jokes veer between the clever and the silly and deliver more than their fair share of belly laughs.

“Very funny” - Manchester Evening News
Since bursting onto the Scottish comedy scene in 2009, Rik Carranza has built up a reputation as a solid act, who blends quirky observational humor with musical comedy.
A multiple-time semi-finalist in the prestigious Scottish Comedian of the Year competition, Rik has won numerous gong shows and has gigged at festivals around the world.
Rik is half-Scottish, half-Filipino, giving him a wealth of funny stories from an intriguing perspective and experience. Engaging, likeable, sharp and unique, Rik is rising the ranks fast.
“Entertaining and clever... not afraid to go out on a limb or try to shock the audience... he is sharp with it” - ★★★★ - Broadway Baby
“With a style similar to Stephen Lynch and a stage presence comparable to Russell Howard, Rik is somebody you should definitely check out” - ★★★★ - Arts Award
“Top-notch comedy” - Edinburgh Evening News
Despite starting comedy out of “sheer boredom” just a few years ago, Andy Fury has impressed a lot of people in a short space of time with a wonderful mix of self-deprecating dark jokes and off the wall surrealism.
With a laidback stage presence that sometimes borders horizontal, he’s as hard-working as he is funny and winning the Hilarity Bites New Act Of The Year 2010 title has put Andy on the path to working at many of the best clubs in the country, wowing audiences the length and breadth of the UK.
