Daliso Chaponda shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent, making it to the final of the 2017 series and establishing himself a firm favourite with the judges and the British public. He became a Facebook and YouTube star amassing over 200 million views of his performances.
He has performed around the world and at the Edinburgh, Melbourne, Singapore, and Cape Town comedy festivals. He has also toured the UK twice to sell out audiences and rave reviews.
In addition to standup comedy, Daliso is also a prolific fiction writer. He has published science fiction, murder mysteries and fantasy fiction in numerous magazines, and anthologies. He is currently working on his new novel and a children’s book.
One of the most intriguing new performers on the Scottish comedy scene in recent years is Connor Burns.
He has already been nominated for the Scottish Comedy Awards Best Newcomer award in 2019 and 2020 as well as being a finalist in the 2020 Amused Moose new act competition, just before the global pandemic shut down live performance. His meteoric rise through the comedy ranks since his first-ever open spot in October of 2017 has seen him nominated for both awards.
Rob Mulholland, one of the North's most rapidly emerging comics, is a pretty strange individual who is not quite as creepy as he appears to be. He is really hilarious and tall. He once caused a woman to urinate during a performance, and some of it ended up in her shoe. His one-liners fly off the tongue, his clothes are too small, and his jackets were originally worn by deceased men. He cracks jokes on how penises and olives are identical, adult babies who are homeless, and online drug sales.
