Any remaining tickets will be available for £12 on the door.
The full line-up includes:
With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up with one of his trusty guitars – Maurice (Fender Strat), No.7 (acoustic) or his Les Paul (the Lezza) by his side. With an eye and ear for the silly, rude, playful and downright irritating occurrences of life Duncan musters up songs that not only make you laugh, they bury into the recesses of your mind and find you a humming tune with a smile on your face 3 days later, confused and wondering where it’s come from.
Rising star Chris Washington is taking the comedy industry and audiences alike by storm. With bags of northern charm, Chris is fresh from a hugely successful debut run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, during which he received a sparkling nomination for the coveted lastminute.com Edinburgh comedy award for Best Newcomer with his solo stand-up hour, ‘Dream Big (Within Reason)’.
Re:Play Breakthrough Comedian of the Year Winner and a finalist in the Magners New Comedy Act in 2015, Chris has proved he’s a definite one to watch, being likened to a “Peter Kay for the smart phone generation”. A favourite on the live circuit he’s already supported the likes of Jason Manford and Tom Stade on tour and recently co-hosted Jason Manford’s weekend radio show for Absolute Radio.
Rahul Kohli is one of the fastest rising act on the circuit. A young geordie asian man combining fierce political satire with surreal storytelling, in just a few short years, his debut solo show: Newcastle Brown Male gained critical acclaim at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival earning him a top pick of both BBC Radio 4 and the Huffington Post. It also gained him radio credits for BBC Radio 4′s State of the Nation and BBC Asia Networks Big Asian Comedy Night. On top of this he has gained writing credits for other Radio 4 Shows while performing at some of the biggest clubs around the country from the Stand up North to the Comedy Store down south. In January 2017, Rahul became an award-winning comedian winning the prestigious NATYS, formerly the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year Award.’
Lou Conran gigs regularly up and down the country, delighting audiences with her naughty but nice delivery, her friendly presence and her instinctive wit. She’s recently been announced as one of the BBC’s New Talent Hot Listers for 2017, and is an English Comedian of the Year 2017 Finalist. She regularly supports Sarah Millican (who describes her as ‘Naturally funny)’ on tour and new material nights up and down the country.
