Widely regarded as one of the most exciting, young comics in the world; Adam Rowe has risen from a prodigious newcomer to an international headline act, since his debut in 2010. He is one of the most sought after acts for all of The UK’s biggest comedy clubs & festivals, whilst he has also performed in & headlined clubs in The Middle East & The United States.
His natural, laid back persona combined with brutally honest, opinionated stand-up and his phenomenal ad libbing ability make each of his performances unique, gloriously unpredictable and, most importantly, always hilarious.
Adam has opened for Andrew Schulz, Jason Manford and was hand-picked to support Bill Burr on the UK leg of his 2019 tour “50”, including two nights at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London.
He’s completed three solo tours; ‘Unbearable’ (2017) and ‘Undeniable’ (2018), both of which sold out dates all over the UK and in 2019 he will take his third solo tour ‘Pinnacle’ on the road, before taping this show as an hour-long special in 2020.
In 2020 Adam launched the Have a Word podcast which has become hugely popular and released his debut stand up special ‘Club Comic’ on YouTube. He has racked up over 50 million views of his stand up online across various platforms such as his YouTube channel, his social media pages and viral-sharing pages such as ‘LadBible’, ‘UniLad’ and ‘Live At Hot Water Comedy Club’.
“Ridiculously good” ★★★★★ Herald “Roars of laughter” Telegraph “A masterclass” ★★★★★ Entertainment Focus
Well, where do we start when it comes to Bethany Black? We could tell you that Chorley’s funniest daughter is Britain’s only goth, lesbian, transsexual comedian but that was fully covered in her debut show ‘Beth Becomes Her’.
As well as making people laugh a lot, Beth was spotted by Russell T Davis and played ‘Helen’ in Channel 4 series’ Cucumber, Banana and Tofu.
We could also tell you Beth is a bit of nerd and something of a Doctor Who obsessive but, how many Whovians can claim to have actually appeared in the show? Beth did in 2015 when she played 474.
This is all well and good but just how funny is she? Oh, don’t worry about that as the answer is ‘very’. Awards include winning the 2020 Joe.co.uk comedy award and is British Comedy Guide recommended.
“A great comedy mind” British Comedy Guide “You’re onto a winner with Bethany.” ★★★★ Funny Women
“I went for an hour laughing at every other word” ★★★★★ LGBT Arts Review ★★★★ Fest Mag
If you have ever had the pleasure of visiting Alexander’s Comedy Club in Chester (Britain’s longest running provincial comedy club, we are told) then, the chances are, you have had the pleasure of seeing it’s resident compere; Danny Mcloughlin.
Overflowing with natural charm, Danny instantly endears himself to the crowd but don’t let that occasional jafakin twang fool you.. Danny’s as sharp as a tack.
Crowd work is just one of Mcloughlin’s skills though, his material is highly distinctive and often falls back onto his twin obsessions with chocolate bars and all things Disney. He has even been known to mine maniacal laughter from simply eating a trifle on stage. ( This was even funnier for us the night it had gone off. )
As well as Alexander’s he regularly performs at The Comedy Store, The Glee and Manford clubs, various music festivals and been regular MC for the coveted Edinburgh Comedy Awards Gala. Both Micky Flanagan and Sean Lock have asked him to support them on tour, so he did!
His Damn Daniel podcast has won him a new legion of fans which have made his 2022 UK tour ‘More Fire’ possible, although Danny claims it’s just so he can get a dressing room to himself.
‘Innate comic timing, insightful digressions and ability to think on his feet puts him alongside the most talented and genuinely funny comedians!’ Three Weeks
‘He can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs.’ Chortle
Your middle act for the evening is Jacob Nussey.
