Fringe favourites WitTank are Kieran Boyd, Mark Cooper-Jones and Naz Osmanoglu. Having formed in Durham at the end of 2005, the group performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2006 and have returned to play to packed houses every year since.
Their innovative, energetic style of comedy has earned them much critical acclaim and ever-increasing audiences.
WitTank hit the London circuit running in 2009, and have performed sketches across the country, including comedy festivals in Leicester, Sheffield, Leeds and Dublin. The trio are all stand up comedians in their own right and have taken stand up shows to Edinburgh since 2009.
They have performed live on BBC Radio Scotland during the Fringe, and contributed to BBC3ís Laughtershock in 2010.
In 2011 they were nominated for The Leicester Comedy Festival Best Show award.
'Hilarious... superbly crafted sketches' - The Independent
'A masterful set' - The Sunday Times
Aussie boy Damian Clark has had comedy goers in hysterics from the moment he hit the European comedy circuit in 2005. His award winning, high-octane observational comedy has garnered worldwide critical acclaim.
Before touching down in the UK, Damian made Ireland his home and became regular features in RTE's 'Republic of Telly', TV3's The Apprentice: You're Fired!' plus wrote & co-starred in 'I Dare Ya!' which became the highest rating Irish comedy debut to date.
Clark's 2011 Edinburgh Fringe show 'Stand UP' was met with a sold out run and in the same year his youtube clips hit over a million viewers. In 2012 Damian was hand picked to support Kevin Bridges and Jack Dee on their national UK tours, playing theaters & arenas to over one hundred thousand people.
Now is the time to catch this raw talent as he stands on the cusp of stardom.

Whilst travelling the world entertaining the masses at circus and theatre festivals everywhere, André found himself working at Disney World Florida at the end of '88. A friend tried to change his sad demeanour by taking him to a comedy club in Orlando and three hours later a new chapter opened in his life. He kept returning to the club, speaking to comics and schmoozing the management, and within a few months he was on the road compering at small stand-up clubs in the southern states of America.
His apprenticeship in Georgia and Alabama was good enough in the eyes of his peers to get gigs in other states of the U.S. and the pinnacle of this work was opening for Bob Hope in Columbus, Ohio in 1992.
With his head swelling and his tongue tripping one-liners, he returned home to conquer the comedy circuit of the U.K., and in no time at all established himself as one of the top stand-ups in the country today. His individual style has taken him across the scope of the performance medium: a Saturday night show on Channel 4, three sell-out runs at the Edinburgh festival, countless radio shows, presenter of two award-nominated television programmes, a regular face on daytime panel games and even an appearance as himself on the children's drama 'Byker Grove'.
'An improvising comedy genius' - The Guardian
'He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business.' - The Times
'André Vincent was also there' - The Chinese People's Press

Every month the Fat Cat presents three (sometimes four!) comedians from the national and international comedy circuits, many are new faces, some are rising stars, and a some are old friends paying welcome return visit due to their unbridled popularity.
The Fat Cat Comedy Club has now established a great reputation on the comedy circuit. This is mainly down to the friendly, enthusiastic and slightly odd audiences it attracts. So be a part of it and maintain the Fat Cat Comedy Club as the biggest and best comedy club in the region.
