Simon King - Headliner

Simon King utterly changes a room when he hits the stage. With lightning quick delivery and deeply intelligent material, he’s like nothing else in the stand up world. An extremely prolific workhorse performer with many years and thousands of shows to his credit Simon is equally at home in a packed theatre, a rowdy bar or even a formal corporate event. With thought provoking, edgy material that is never crass or blue Simon brings a hilarious and fresh style to the stage.

Being the kind of comic that comes along maybe once in a generation gets you noticed. His career is littered with critical and commercial successes including numerous television, radio and festival appearances and even praise from some of the biggest names in comedy. Once you’ve had a chance to see him perform you’ll surely agree that Simon King is nothing short of a force of nature.

“Having seen Simon perform many times I have been incredibly impressed with his unique talent. From everything I have seen Simon is truly a gifted comedian” – Robin Williams

Andy Stedman - Support

During his mildly successful music career it is unlikely that Andy’s voice literally melted hearts, but his witty between-song chat was always a big part of his shows and often stoked as much (if not more) interest than the tunes themselves! Fast-forward to now, a few years and a bet with a comedy promoter friend later, and it’s the songs that are tactically placed between the chat and the storytelling, not the other way around.

2015 saw Andy perform over 100 comedy gigs in his memorably cheeky, likeable manner. His first ever stint at Edinburgh Fringe saw him perform the whole month, MCing at Big Silly Comedy’s Midnight Mash-Up and performing guest slots on shows such as Laughing Horse Pick Of The Fringe, Shaggers, and Relatively Normal.

Outside of the Fringe Andy has played gigs for Backyard, Mirth, Cheeky Monkey, Comedy Club, Crack Comedy, Open Comedy, Funhouse, Monkey Business, Big Silly and more.

“He connected well with the audience and wrote two love songs for a couple there who had been dating for one week. Very, very funny comic.” – Martin Mullaney, Comedy, Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club
