Jo Caulfield: Killing Time (Work in Progress)
Jo Caulfield’s shows have been described as “The Must See Show “ at the Edinburgh Festival. This is a preview of her brand new Stand Up show for this years Edinburgh Festival, "Killing Time". Expect “Razor sharp one liners and hilarious observations”.
TV appearances include "Have I Got News For You", "The John Bishop Show" and "Mock the Week".
She has had several of her own series on Radio 4 as well as being a guest on "Just A Minute", "The Unbelievable Truth”, and “The Now Show".
“feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy” - The Observer
“cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue” - The Times
“Many of the points Jo Caulfield makes about the human condition would have sociologists stroking their beards in admiration, but her audiences tend to be laughing too much to notice” - The Times
Martin Mor: BLOCKED (Work in Progress)
Martin is blocked on Twitter by Donald Trump, The NRA, and The Creationist Museum.
That’s three good reasons to see this show.
“a comedy institution” - The Guardian
“world class” - The Scotsman
“Martin is the act that has influenced me the most, the UK comedy circuit would not be the same without him” - Frankie Boyle
Nigel Ng: Malaysian Sensation (Work in Progress)
I’m from Malaysia.
Join me as I observe and adopt your Western ways (just started recycling!)
People describe me as “slick, has natural funnybones” (Chortle).
I won the Amused Moose National New Comic Award in 2016. In 2017 I was selected to be part the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve up at the Edinburgh Fringe.
“Brilliant... Go see him” - ★★★★★ - One4Review
“Natural funnybones... as slick as they come” - Chortle
“Top notch... oozed likability and the audience loved him from the word go... stole the show” - The Stand
Lou Conran: At Least I'm Not Dog Poo Darren (Work in Progress)
Lou Conran returns to Darlington after a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017, with a show about presumption, misunderstandings and misgivings.
There’s always someone worse off than you, isn’t there? Someone that you regularly thank your lucky stars that you’re not like. But what if all isn’t as it seems?
“Laugh out loud hilarious” - ★★★★ - The Scotsman
