Stefano Paolini - Headliner
Since receiving the runner-up accolade in Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny Award 2001 and in BBC’s New Comedy Award 2002, Stefano has had a constant stream of TV and radio work, which he juggles with Stand up gigging.
Stefano is a popular face on the UK comedy circuit with his speciality impressions of people, musical sounds and animals always being a hit with audiences. The wicked beat box section of the act is worth the entry fee on it’s own.
“A remarkable repertoire of voices and sounds”- The Stage
“ACE…….an obvious star”- The Scotsman
George Ridgen - Support
George Rigden is a Bristol-based musical comic who, despite having only been gigging since 2013, has already racked up in excess of 200 gigs, enjoyed success in a clutch of competitions and is now booked regularly for paid opening/middle sets and MC work for a wide range of respected promoters and independent nights.
In the last year alone, he’s gigged with the likes of Russell Howard, Stephen Merchant, Jason Manford, Nick Helm & Joe Wilkinson, and is the resident M.C. for legendary Bristol night, OPPO (founded by Mark Olver). In 2015 George will be making his Edinburgh debut, having beaten off stiff competition to win a place in Bound & Gagged Comedy’s prestigious showcase ‘AAA’ at The Pleasance Edinburgh.
‘He is a very knowing act, sardonic and aloof…Solidly Entertaining’
Steve Bennett, Chortle
Pat Gallagher - Compere
Pat Gallagher is a Birmingham born comic who lives in the Forest of Dean, (that comedy hot bed) He is arguably the best unsigned 20 minute opener / middle 20, in comedy today. He says that for principally one reason only, he loves a good argument. Pat has gigged all over claiming to have played in more toilets than George Michael. He has also headlined in Plymouth and regional south West gigs, as well as numerous regional South West festivals, including playing as support for Wil Hodgson at the ancient order of druids, the largest gathering in Wales.
‘Pat Gallagher is a genius. Saw him MC last night, it’s great to watch him go from friendly chatting to outrageousely funny and back again without missing a beat or even acknowledging it. Class.’ Chortle Forums
