Resident host DAN NIGHTINGALE introduces double headliners ANDY ASKINS and CARL DONNELLY.

ANDY ASKINS has an expertly crafted routine littered with an eclectic mix of offbeat original comic songs and parodies. With a wickedly dry sense of humour, Andy’s darker material is sweetened by his innocent and impish demeanour which never fails to leave audiences in the palm of his hand. Andy has built a reputation as a distinctive and original talent, and is now a highly sought-after headliner at all the major UK comedy clubs, as well as being a favourite amongst his peers. As seen on BBC One’s The John Bishop Show.

CARL DONNELLY has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award twice, won a bunch of other awards, appeared on a selection of TV shows (Mock the Week, Russell Howard’s Good News, Dave’s One Night Stand) and travelled the world having performed at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The New Zealand Comedy Festival and pretty much every other comedy festival there is. ‘Gripping, unmissable stand-up’ (Guardian) from ‘a master storyteller’ (Time Out).

DAN NIGHTINGALE, widely regarded as one of the best performers working on the comedy circuit today, is our resident MC. 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.
