Andre Vincent
Andre Vincent returns once more to revel in the joys of the Suffolk accent and Bury St Edmunds! He last visited us December 2014 and was like a jolly Christmas Santa. He is a proper character who will just make you smile as well as laugh. He has a short snappy quip style and isn’t afraid to lay his real life bare to the audience.  A genuine comedian, if there is such a thing?

Zoe Lyons
A common guest on Mock the Week, Zoe is a wonderfully dark top British Comedienne.
Although most of us like small intimate comedy gigs from time to time, Zoe relishes in large venues, she gets a real “buzz!” With her Psychology degree background it’s hardly surprising she takes this admirable stance on comedy:
“I don’t think that there are any limits to what can be talked about by comedians. We all use humour to get over adversity, grief, fears. I guess it all depends on what the intention behind the joke is.”

Adam Bloom

Quirky and inventive Adam Bloom is pure fun. Check out his virtual Rubik’s Cube on his website, says it all. A fringe favourite with his first show back in 1996 and a constant frequenter following that. Adam knew he wanted to be a comedian since he was 10 years old, and embraces his inner child even now! You may have heard of his successful Radio 4 show ‘The Problem with Adam Bloom.’ He’s certainly unique and not to be missed.

First Fat Cat of 2016!

Beat those January blues with some excellent stand up comedy – 10th January 2016 – The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Our Compere… Roger Monkhouse

With a forte for political satire, Monkhouse is like a naughty school teacher who’s not afraid to accentuate and mock his own baldness with all it’s connotations! A master of banter, this compere will kick off the night but keep the momentum going. His observational comedy will also highlight the frivolity in all things…

Supporting…. Sally Anne Hayward

Not one for succumbing to cliché’s Sally Anne Hayward is a fresh comedian. An Edinburgh Fringe favourite, come and revell in her awkward nature, with a hint of spitefulness at times. She’s harsh, but still funny.

Her twitter bio just about sums her up “Can’t tell if she is posh or utterly hammered. Comedian, writer and other such excuse.”

“Clever observations and sharp punch lines.” Three Weeks

Your BIG FAT JANUARY HEADLINER! …

Terry Alderton

Another fringe star, described by Tim Vine as ‘the master of voices’ is one you will never forget. He can be a little like Marmite, you will either love him or hate him.  Either way there is a tad bit of weirdness thrown in, and again, not to everyone’s taste but with the right content, you will be in stitches. Only one way for you to find out! Be a true stand up lover and come and judge for yourself!

“It’s all silly dancing, loopy audience interaction and microphone-mauling vocal effects.” The Guardian

WHAT A CHRISTMAS CRACKER OF A FAT CAT!

Christmas has come early for this month’s comedy night on Sunday 13th December 

Headlining are the mysterious MEN IN COATS!

Men in coats are your modern day clowns. Their show is a tremendous display of purely physical and visual comedy, they do not speak a word! A typical Edinburgh Fringe sell out show, their act will never become old. They have various formats from as little as 10 minutes, to 25 minutes.

They are a pure joy and simply great fun to watch.
They are just as interactive as their website, check it out! http://www.menincoats.co.uk/

Men in Coats will take you from a raised eyebrow to creasing up with laughter and if the gags don’t get you their inventiveness and dexterity surely will”  THE SCOTSMAN

“Hilariously simple… Men in Coats are the talk of the Fringe”

Your Compere is feisty Feliciity Ward

Funny aussie Felicity is your perfect compere, making you die with laughter at some pretty heart wrenching issues. A comedian with a cause, she’s not scared to talk about mental health and relishes in it’s complexities. With this in mind you would think she is a dark comic, but she is nothing of the sort. She has a bright infectious enthusiasm.

Check out her hilarious twitter for gems like these:
“@felicityward: I bet you’re not as sexually confident as your beard would have me believe.”

To top it all off, we have our friendly Yorkshireman, Tom Wrigglesworth.

Often sporting a Seargant Pepper jacket, the quirky but laid back Tom has material reminiscent of Ross Noble but nowhere near as bizarre. Having compered our shows in the past, it will be great to see the original comic in his element. Nevertheless, I am sure he won’t be able to resist a bit of audience banter.

‘The gods of comedy chose Tom Wrigglesworth for greatness’ ***** (Scotsman).

‘Magical Storytelling…a rare talent…hysterical and accomplished’ ***** (Timeout). ‘Funny bones’ (Evening Standard).
