Show details:

Paul F Taylor

Paul F. Taylor

Top Ten - Dave's Funniest Jokes of the Fringe 2014
Three Jokes in Top 100 - The Mirror's Top 100 Jokes from The Edinburgh Fringe 2014

The award winning Paul F Taylor is a one of the UK’s most original and distinctive stand-up performers. His unique brand of humour fuses quirky offbeat one liners with surreal and observational flights of fancy to fantastical effect. Winner of the NATY New Act Of The Year for 2013, Paul’s persona of a lost bewildered fool sits perfectly alongside his gleefully madcap ideas.

Paul has also achieved notable success as a screen writer and actor. Milk! that he co-wrote and starred in, was the ShortCom Jury Select Winner 2015, and was in the official selection in LOCO, Nashville, LOL, Shortwaves, Glasgow and London Short Film festivals. Battlecock! that he also co-wrote and starred in, made it into the official selection at the BFI London Film Festival 2013.


“Brilliantly funny... a fantastically well-constructed set, Taylor performs sketches and characters alike with a convincing passion” - Three Weeks

“Brilliantly funny nonsense” - The List

“A slightly touched idiot capable of deceptively smart subversions of existence... Taylor evokes vivid visual imagery” - The Scotsman

 

Alun Cochrane

Alun Cochrane

You'll know Alun Cochrane from TV, radio, and being one of the best stand-ups in the UK.

Alun Cochrane is a no-nonsense comedian who specialises in funny nonsense. Much of his comedy begins simply as something he’s seen, heard or felt in his own life, or in the street, or the kitchen, or anywhere, and from that it blossoms into a highly amusing anecdote or a strange flight of fancy.

Alun has several television appearances to his name, most recently Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, and Dave's One Night Stand, but he's also often seen on Have I Got News For You, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock The Week, and has appeared on Soccer A.M and Live At The Comedy Store.

Alun’s dulcet tones can also be heard frequently on BBC Radio 4 on Alun Cochrane’s Fun House, Just A Minute, Dilemma and The Now Show, whilst Alun is also affectionately known as the Cockerel on Absolute Radio's Frank Skinner Show.


“Cochrane’s dour and grumpy onstage persona is allied to a real craft and creativity in his writing, yielding results that satisfy both the comedy purists and those who simply want big belly laughs on a night out” - The Guardian

“A master storyteller, holding the audience before dropping an exploding but simple punchline...” - Metro

“Alun Cochrane's ability to make the little things in life a comedy goldmine is phenomenal” - Chortle

 

Danny Deegan

Danny Deegan

Danny Deegan is a comedian, writer and actor who began performing in 2003 and has since risen steadily through the ranks of some of the most prestigious comedy clubs in the UK. His tales of mischief and the characters he creates have kept audiences all over the country enthralled as he weaves in and out of the people he has met travelling. His talent and likability coupled with a confident swagger see him as one of the most popular acts in the North.

Fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, where he received rave reviews, Danny also recently performed a headline set at the Green Man festival in South Wales getting a great reception from the 400 people in the marquee and being asked to wrap up for Manchester band Doves after their headline set in front of 12,000 people.

Outside of live work Danny has made several TV and radio appearances. From being a guest on Radio GMR to having his own show "Afternoons with Danny Deegan" on CAT FM in Crewe. His TV credits include appearances on "Made in the North" and "The Adam and Shelley Show" to name but two.


“His seamless interactions with the crowd demonstrate that he’s a natural-born comedian... appealing to both the young and old, female and male” - Three Weeks

“Charming, witty and most importantly funny” - Metro

“Deegan has a mature confidence in his abilities” - Chortle
