Ricky Grover

Multi-award winning comedian, actor and writer Ricky Grover has an impressive list of TV & film credits and is a hugely popular and explosive act, on both the national and international comedy circuit. Born and bred in the East End of London, Ricky was an ex champion boxer and hairdresser before taking the comedy scene by storm.

On the comedy circuit Ricky is best known and loved for his comic character 'Bulla' (gangster and social commentator). Bulla also appeared as a regular guest on 'The 11 O'Clock Show' and was interviewed by Michael Parkinson.

As well as comedy clubs and corporate appearances Ricky is in demand on the Armed Forces Comedy Circuit, regularly playing from our Troops abroad.

A prolific writer, Ricky has written and starred in three short films, receiving international acclaim. The UK released 'Punch' won him the prestigious Silver Bear Award and 'Hungry' (broadcast on Channel 4) won him the Best Actor Award at the Brest Film Festival. His latest film, 'Therapy', is currently in production.

Sophie Hagen

Chortle’s Best Newcomer 2014

Danish comedienne Sofie Hagen has taken the UK by storm in just the few months she has resided on our sunny shores. Time Out has already declared her 'One to watch' and Chortle wrote 'her timing is spot-on and pauses, facial expressions and knowing nods and smiles all combine to make an act who is destined to make a name for herself.' when she won the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2013, establishing her as a comedian who is "destined for great things".

Charlie Baker

Charlie Baker's instant likeability and charming delivery style has earned him a reputation as 'a superior take on the modern showman' (The Guardian).

He is a popular face on TV panel shows having appeared as team captain on 'A Short History Of Everything Else' (Ch4), two series of 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' (BBC2), 'Rob Brydon’s Christmas Special' (BBC1), 'Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live' (BBC3) and 'The Comedy Store' (Comedy Central).

Charlie's versatile talent as a stand-up comedian and highly acclaimed jazz- singer and actor saw his critically acclaimed show 'Baker's Dozen' have a sell-out run the Edinburgh Festival last summer, which went on to tour throughout the UK.

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.
