1, Our MC for the evening, fresh from her successful sellout comedy shows in Cardiff, will be the absolutely fantastic – Lorna Pritchard!
Lorna is a former actor and TV presenter who burst onto the Welsh comedy circuit last year. Described recently as “the hottest thing in Welsh comedy” (Radio Cardiff), Lorna’s improvised routines won awards at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She is now a regular on the British circuit, providing support for TV comedians and hosting her own sellout comedy night every month!
2. We’re pleased to announce that our Opener for the evening will be the fantastically funny Andrew Rutledge.
A gifted story teller with a potent armoury of killer lines and comic voices that are underpinned by his warm likeable delivery! Recently referred to as “one of the most entertaining comedians in South Wales”. Since Andrew burst on to the circuit in January 2016, he’s become a popular comedian on the circuit and opened last year’s comedy festival in Neath!
3. The fantastic Simon Emmanuel!
As Winner of the Welsh Unsigned Stand-Up Award and finalist of Loaded’s Search For A Star competition, Simon Emanuel’s quick wit and far flung observations make him a sure fire hit wherever he goes! Simon has not only made appearances on Rhod Gilbert’s BBC Radio show, but has also supported Alan Davies! Made in Cardiff TV presenter and a regular on the BBC Wales Jamie Owen Show, Simon’s views of the world and ridiculous punch lines, have earned him his reputation as a “One man comedy scene!” (Wales Online)
4. The heart warming Col Howarth!
‘The happiest act on the circuit. One of those comedians who truly lights up the room’ (Charlie Smith, Comedy Den). ‘Witty, clever and charming’ (Drew Taylor, Clwb Comedy). Col Howarth is naturally warm, engaging and enthusiastic, which endears audiences to his distinct style of observational comedy ’Howarth was energetic, clever and fun, with perfect comic timing. He told hysterical stories that had the audience smiling from start to end.’ Wing It Productions, Bideford.
5. Last but not least, the simply hilarious Tiff Stevenson!
She’s delighted audiences on Mock the Week, Russell Howard’s Good News, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Balls of Steel, The Apprentice: You’re Fired, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and so much more!! As an actress, she’s appeared on The Office, the BAFTA nominated People Just Do Nothing, appeared in the West End alongside David Tennant and been in Footballers Wives too! What’s On Stage said she “Had me and the rest of the audience in stitches”, The Times called her a “hugely accomplished and enjoyably provocative comedian” and she’s won the ‘Mervyn Stutter’s Spirit of the Fringe’ Award too!
So, are you ready to join us for this fantastic night of comedy? Well, head straight here then!
