Entertaining the metropolitan elites at London’s Soho theatre or the Edinburgh Fringe is one thing but keeping baying crowds of UK and US squaddies happy requires a slightly different skill set! In fact, keeping them so happy you get asked back three times is the hallmark of a solid comic at the very top of their game and that sums up the wondrously monikered Garrett Millerick perfectly!
Co-host of hit podcast Laughable (alongside Jayde Adams and Red Richardson), Garrett has also performed his stand up on hit US talk show Conan as well as all the usual venues, tours and support slots to be expected from a comedian this good.
Acerbic yet delightful, grumpy but both hilarious and passionate. We really can’t recommend Garrett Millerick to you enough.
“The comic that other comics want to be. Brilliant.” ★★★★★ Three Weeks
“Wonderfully funny.” ★★★★ The Times “A unique joy.” ★★★★ The List
Circus performer, clown, comedy historian and, of course, stand up comedian Andre Vincent has many strings to his bow. So many, he’s going to need a bigger bow….
Born in a Woolworth’s department store Andre has since appeared in the oddest of places including a bullring in Columbia, a Nova Scotian baseball stadium and Vietnamese refugee camps in the South China Sea! This multi talented performer is equally at home improvising, riffing off the crowd or unleashing one of his many scalpel-sharp one liners and is a must see for all those who love laughing till it hurts.
Andre’s many claims to fame include having opened for the legend that was Bob Hope as well as teaching Cliff Richard to ride a unicycle!
“One of the best” The Times “Ferociously funny” Sunday Times “Originality and biting humour” The Scotsman
“Blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension” Metro
Middle act at is Jon Capewell and your host for the evening is Stockport’s Alex Boardman. Alex cut his comedic teeth on the burgeoning Manchester scene with sets at the Frog & Bucket followed by an all nighter at The Hacienda! Family life has tempered the inner wild child but it’s certainly added to both the maturity and the relatability of his stand up.
A gifted gag smith, Alex writes for a lot of big names and TV shows including John Bishop, A Question Of Sport and many we’re not allowed to say!
