Mike Gunn - Headliner

Mike Gunn’s history is as interesting and entertaining as his comedy.

A misspent youth and a series of grim jobs cultivated his cynical outlook on life and a perverse desire led him to the world of stand-up.

A self-confessed pessimist, he describes himself as “not a natural choice for a career in laughter”. He has a rare ability to walk close to the line of what audiences find acceptable and yet still remain likable and funny.

His reputation for being a bit unfriendly, a touch dark and even morose is really not true. In real life he’s loving, warm and philanthropic. Just a bit misunderstood.

On TV, he’s performed on BBC One’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and The World Stands-Up and The Comedy Store for Comedy Central. He’s also appeared on Celebrity Deal or No Deal and The Gas on Channel 4; Harry Hill’s TV Burp on ITV, Live at Jongleurs for Channel 5 and Al Murray’s sit-com Time Gentlemen Please for Sky1. As a writer, he has been a regular contributor for The Guardian and has also written for Time Out, The List, The 11 O’clock Show (Channel 4) and Match of The Day Magazine.

Matt Bragg - Support

Within three years of starting stand-up Matt has been a finalist in Manford’s New Act of The Year, supported Harry Hill and Clinton Baptiste (Phoenix Nights),and appeared at some of the best comedy clubs in the country.

In 2020 Matt was the runner up in the Leicester Mercury ’Comedian of the year" competition and has a growing reputation as one of the acts to watch for the future.

“With a calm and reassuring stage presence, blisteringly sharp and hilariously funny jokes, Matt Bragg is a comedic force to be reckoned with, a refreshingly different performer.” – Scott Bennett

Russell Hicks - Compere

Anarchic, unbridled and unfiltered. Russell Hicks is a risk-taking comic whirlwind who captivates audiences everywhere with his razor-sharp wit, astounding observations and slick audience take-downs.

From the moment he steps on stage, crowds are hooked by his infectiously rebellious personality and unapologetic style as he delivers entirely original comedy content right there in front of your eyes.

“Astonishing, astonishing and astonishing. He simply took the roof of the place leaving people talking about his act all night. His entire 20 minutes was totally improvised based entirely on audience interaction. Brilliant” Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club
