Howard Read has performed stand-up all over the world from the Aspen and Melbourne Comedy Festivals to being nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award. He’s headlined comedy clubs up and down the country, won a Writer’s Guild Award and performed in front of Royalty. If you’re aged around twenty then you may well remember both him and his alter ego, Little Howard from their telly days. Little Howard now lives in Dubai. As well as cracking gas and embarking of fitful flights of fancy, Howard sometimes plays the ukulele, but only so he’s got something to hit audience members with, when they try to stop him playing the ukulele.
‘Incredibly, achingly funny’ Daily Mail ★★★★★ Independent ★★★★★ British Theatre Guide
Nick Doody was the first ever British comedian to perform in Croatia and the last ever British comedian to support Bill Hicks. So, whether you’re a newly emerging nation state or a soon to die comedy icon, Nick is your man!
“I love Nick Doody!” Independent
Something of a comedy god in his native Scotland, the superbly sweary Raymond Mearns combines razor sharp observations with blinding improvisation and audience interaction to produce the most memorable comedy you are every likely to see. As well as performing stand up, Raymond has acted in everything from two films with legendary director Ken Loach to to the Cheesy Strings advert.
