Carl Hutchinson

Carl Hutchinson is a multi-award winning comedian, having won the Beat The Frog World Series and Magners Comedian of the year awards in 2007. He's also a Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Nominee and So You Think You’re Funny Finalist, was seen on ITV's FHM Comedy Hero and performed at the highly respected Big Value Comedy Showcase in Edinburgh in 2011.

Carl supported former three-time wrestling heavyweight champion and bestselling author Mick Foley on both of his UK Comedy Tours; in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Carl then supported Chris Ramsey on the last leg of his ‘Offermation’ tour in 2012, and performed his first solo hour at the 2012 Edinburgh festival where it was shortlisted in the Amused Moose Awards and has received outstanding reviews from all of the major festival press.

Carl returned to the Edinburgh Fringe with his second and third solo hours in 2013 and 2014, before heading out on a tour of large theatres alongside Chris Ramsey, which continues into 2015.


“Effortlessly hilarious. He captivates the audience with his perfectly timed suspenseful silences and plain-talking sense-making” - ★★★★ - Three Weeks

“An absolute must... the next big thing!” - The Skinny

“The comedy catalyst to a great night out” - Three Weeks

“Hutchinson’s trump card is the way he interacts with the audience, rolling with every ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ his material generated, giving a dynamism and spontaneity to his performance” - Chortle

Lee Kyle

Lee Kyle

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.


“Top up-and-coming comedy performer” - BBC

“Quirky and original... the highlight of the night” - Giggle Beats

“Very funny” - Manchester Evening News

This show will also feature support from several new acts, and established acts performing new material.
