Diamond geezer, Watford fan and stalwart of British comedy, Eddy Brimson has many strings to his bow. As well as being a much in demand comedian, he has penned several books on his first love of football including ‘Tear Gas And Ticket Touts’ and the ‘Hooligan’ series (alongside brother Dougie). Eddy is also an accomplished actor who has popped up in everything from Casualty to Absolutely Fabulous. He also played the arsonist who torched Frank Butcher’s business in East Enders and you don’t get much more geezer than that!

Wigan’s Chris Washington made his Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2017 with his self-produced show ‘Dream Big (Within Reason)’ after taking all his annual leave in his full-time job as a postman. The gamble paid off and Chris received a nomination for Best Newcomer despite having no management, promoter or PR. A feel-good underdog story which he describes as getting five numbers and the bonus ball on the comedy lottery.

Harry Stachini used to teach kids. Naughty kids. As in really, really naughty kids and, if you can make a success of that how difficult is a career as a stand up comedian? This natural comic, still of comparatively few summers, allows his natural warmth to carry hilarious tales and intricately spun stories with a skill usually only present in much more experienced comics.
Harry’s a grafter and his solid work ethic and reputation amongst both audiences and promoters make him the comedian to watch out for in the next year or so! An impressive easy-going style pulls off stand ups oldest trick of leaving us feeling we are chatting to a mate as he shares his distinctive outlook on the world, involves the audience and skilfully leads us into well-crafted scenarios, with expert delivery. When not making people laugh like drains Harry writes, acts and films short sketches and documentaries.
