Dates & Prices

Nick Doody;
Nick Doody has been performing comedy since the 90s when, as a student, he got off to a pretty good start by supporting the legendary Bill Hicks, at Bill's request. A little later, Nick was a finalist in Channel 4's So You Think You're Funny? competition.
Since then he has performed all over the world: Ireland, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Estonia... You get the idea. He was the first British comedian to perform in Croatia.
Nick has appeared on various radio and TV shows (listed below), and is also much in demand as a writer. He has penned jokes for Joan Rivers, Lenny Henry, Dame Edna Everage and an uncomfortable number of Mock The Week regulars. He was also the creator and head writer of Bigipedia, a critically acclaimed Radio 4 show that broadcast in 2009 and 2011.
In 2006, Nick performed his first solo Edinburgh Festival show, Before He Kills Again. The show received rave reviews and sold out for the whole festival, leading to a run at the Soho Theatre.

Harriet Dyer;
Harriet Dyer (BBC3, BBC Live at The Fringe, BBC Radio 4, BBC Knock Knock, BBC Ouch, Absolute Radio, The Russell Howard Hour) is an award winning comedian, writer and mental health advocate.
Harriet has been a full time comic since 2013. She’s had numerous critically acclaimed shows, works for the majority of big clubs and festivals, regularly gigs overseas, and prides herself in being totally original! - An experience to behold, if you will.
Harriet has bipolar disorder and does a lot of comedy work around mental health. Her debut, solo, hour-long show Barking At Aeroplanes at Edinburgh Fringe about her struggles and adventures with mental health received critical acclaim, resulting in a tour.
Harriet was touched by the reaction the show received, with audience members expressing how much of an important show it was and how refreshing it was to hear someone talk so openly about mental health. This led to Harriet creating the award winning, monthly mental health comedy night Barking Tales which is beloved by its many regular attendees.
Most recently Harriet's written a book about her life to critical acclaim, and she's been one of the main writers on both seasons on Jon Richardson's Channel Hopping.

Tom Wrigglesworth;
Tom Wrigglesworth, a comedian from Yorkshire, rose to national acclaim for saving an elderly woman from the bureaucracy of Virgin Trains before getting himself imprisoned for panhandling.
The charismatic wordsmith Tom started his journey up the comedy ladder in 2002 and is now firmly established as one of the most inventive and gifted comedians on the UK and worldwide scene. He won the famous So You Think You're Funny? competition held by Channel 4 in 2003, and a year later he was nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer. He has since carried on dominating the UK scene. He is an intelligent and gifted raconteur who has the natural ability to riff with an audience as though they were long-lost friends.

Reviews

"I love Nick Doody...he's like a drunken, gagged-up Richard Dawkins, brilliantly shooting down superstitions with songs and sucker-punchlines!"
The Independant
"Harriet Dyer was one of the stand out superstars for me at this year's Edinburgh Fringe. She’s insightful, unique, peerless, extraordinary and… ​well, maybe a little unhinged."
BBC Radio 4 Extra
Tom is "A rare talent, hysterical and accomplished."
