Host DAN NIGHTINGALE introduces double headliners JONNY AWSUM and JOSH PUGH
JONNY AWSUM exploded onto the comedy scene with a crowd-pleasing set that’s seen him perform his special feel-good brand of musical comedy around the world. He’s a comedic whirlwind – armed with an impressive arsenal of jokes and his trusty guitar – and has risen quickly from a fresh faced newbie to a highly sought after headline act. Audience members don’t just leave entertained, they leave as fans. “Brilliant comic who has definitely got big things ahead for him” (Jason Manford).
JOSH PUGH is one of UK comedy’s most exciting and fastest rising stars. This unique multi-award-winning stand-up is the current English Comedian of the Year, having previously picked up the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award, Nottingham Comedy Festival New Act of the Year Award and Midland New Act of the Year Award (twice). Chortle Comedian to Watch 2017. ‘A keen comic mind’ (Beyond The Joke). ‘A peculiarly offbeat mind… certain future star’ (Chortle).
DAN NIGHTINGALE is widely regarded as one of the best performers working on the comedy circuit today. Mixing fiendishly accurate observation with energetic characterisations and killer punch lines, his comedy is original, playful, intelligent, poignant and exciting; sometimes ridiculous… but always hilarious. As well as being a top-class circuit headliner and in-demand MC, he has also performed regular TV warm up for the likes of Jonathan Ross, John Bishop and Celebrity Juice.
