Since winning the inaugural Scottish Comedian of the Year Award in 2006, barely a year after his first-ever open-spot, Mark Nelson’s mix of dark humour, cutting observations and superb one-liners has seen him firmly established as one of the UK’s biggest-hitting comedy powerhouses. With a likeable manner on stage belying some of the stronger content, Nelson often has audiences laughing at things they know they really shouldn’t be laughing at. An MA degree in Politics from Glasgow University supports his brilliantly topical writing and, although his stand-up is certainly not for the easily offended, the material is intelligent, well conceived and beautifully crafted, all supported by a very confident delivery. He is therefore a very sought-after comedian and writer, with both the skill and intellect to be able to adapt his material to suit and entertain any club, theatre or corporate audiences.
Steve Gribbin is a diminutive guitar-wielding satirist from Liverpool whose scabrous comedy songs and off the wall observations have made him one of the firm favourites of the comedy circuit. For nine years Steve was the smaller one in the dynamic comedy duo Skint Video, stalwart's of the Edinburgh Festival, appearing on countless television programmes such as Saturday Live, radio such as The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and their own show in 1992/3 Songlines (BBC Radio 1). Skint Video went their different ways in 1993, since when Steve has been storming across the UK and Ireland as a solo artiste.
Freddy Quinne is an award-winning comedian from Preston, Lancashire. He absolutely hates writing about himself in the third person but needs to fill out this part of his website because sometimes promoters will use these bios and copy and paste them into their own comedy events when he is on. He is dead funny though, wow, I mean, if you've not seen him before then you're in for a real treat. Is he the future of comedy? Quite probably. Freddy Quinne is a comedic powerhouse - regularly performing his shamelessly opinionated, no-holes-barred stand up at the biggest comedy clubs in the country. He is known for his frank approach and often brutal punchlines, covering everything from topical news to universal truths. His Amazon Prime comedy special, "Quite The Catch", has amassed over half a million views. He also has hours of online footage from shows across the world, with clips racking up millions of streams on Facebook and YouTube
