October 2018: FAT CAT FUN

Sunday 14 October 2018

TERRY ALDERTON

Combining a fearless on-stage presence, unshakeable confidence and streetwise hyperactive delivery, Terry leaves his audience exhilarated and exhausted with laughter. When not on stage he has been seen on TV with comic roadshows and Apollo outings as well as a stint on EastEnders and Holby City. You’ll never get the same show twice.

“Electrifying stage presence and hilarious, first rate impressions.” – The Independent

DAVID TRENT

Described by The Guardian as “Like TV Burp if Harry Hill was on PCP”, David Trent has been blowing minds since 2012 with intelligently depicted yet hilariously explosive observations of modern day pop culture.

Smashing on to the comedy scene in 2012 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his debut solo show ‘Spontaneous Comedian’ David Trent wowed audiences and critics alike with his unique brand of tech heavy comedy and high octane audiovisual onslaught, selling out the 26 night run and receiving a nomination for the coveted Foster’s Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. Further recognition quickly followed with a run at noted London comedy haunt, The Soho Theatre and another nomination, this time for Best Breakthrough Act at the 2012 Chortle Awards.

KEVIN MCCARTHY

With an ever changing act, and the ability to find humour in any subject, Kevin’s cuddly personality and utterly relaxed stage persona puts the audience instantly at ease.

PAUL SINHA

Best known as “the Sinnerman” on the hugely popular ITV quiz show The Chase, trained medical doctor Paul has been a successful comedian for a number of years. Having performed eight solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe to date, he has also played every major comedy club in the UK, performed in eighteen other countries across the globe, and been three times nominated for Best Club Comedian at the Chortle Awards, winning in 2014.

“Wonderfully inventive and intelligent” – Evening Standard

MARKUS BIRDMAN

Markus is one of comedy’s most versatile performers and writers. A vicar’s son who delights in debunking conventional wisdom with a joyous combination of erudition and mischief, his wonderful performances are an object lesson in how to do stand-up. He has now repeatedly performed over the years at the Edinburgh Festival to great success and is being booked for weekends at The Comedy Store, as well as all major UK clubs.

“Witty, controversial, hip, topical and silly. He made me laugh so hard it hurt” – BBC

ANDRE VINCENT

He started his career as a professional show-off at an early age, becoming a star-struck stage brat, working when any theatre company needed a street urchin. After a quick stint of training in Paris and with a backpack full of equipment, Andre started travelling the world entertaining the masses at circus and theatre festivals everywhere. 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.

“An improvising comedy genius” – The Guardian
