Comedians

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.

Steve’s original comedy songs combine razor sharp lyrics with tunes that put their foot in the door of your mind and refuse to leave. Firmly based in rock ‘n’ roll and refusing to pull no punches, these are not the ‘oh so witty’ ditties of penguin-suited plink plonk piano playing posh gobs. They are that rarity – comedy songs which are actually funny.

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 then Steve has been storming across the UK and Ireland as a solo artiste.

RUSSELL HICKS is one of the most exciting comics to come out of America and branded one of the ‘Top Six Comics to Watch’ by LA’s Stand Up Talk Magazine. He has appeared on Direct TV’s ‘What’s News?’ and is a regular guest on hit podcasts such as Talkin’ Sh*t with Eddie Ifft. Russell is prolific and consistently delivers quality new work, Fast and loose, no two shows are ever the same.

DARREN WALSH is so compelled to crack puns that you’d think it was an illness. His act is a high-tempo session of wordplay with bells and whistles, props, jingles, songs and animations. He was crowned the UK’s first Pun Champion which led to a book of over 1000 cartoons and gags. In 2015 he debuted in Edinburgh with his show PUNDERBOLT and won Dave’s funniest Joke of the Fringe.
