With Marcus Brigstocke, Alistair Williams, David Tsonos and hosted by Caroline Mabey!

Headlined by Marcus BrigstockeMarcus’s talent was noted early on in his career in 1996 when he won the BBC New Comedian Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He is now regarded as a major comedy, writing, and acting talent, performing stand-up nationally to sell-out audiences on tour. BBC Radio 4 has become somewhat of a second home to Marcus with regular appearances on I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, The Now Show and Just a Minute; he has written and recorded five series of his hit show Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off. Most recently, he co-starred alongside Kerry Godliman in two series of The Wilsons Save the World. 

Marcus has notched up an impressive list of TV credits including his role as team captain on Argumental (Dave), and host of The Late Edition and I’ve Never Seen Star Wars (BBC Four). Other appearances include; Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News for You (BBC One), Mock the Week (BBC Two), QI (BBC Two), Sorry, I’ve Got No Head (BBC One), The Late Edition (BBC Four), and The 11 O’Clock Show (Channel 4).

Marcus is the master of satirical comedy and has proved to be blisteringly funny over a wide range of topics including; climate change, religious extremism, immigration, loans companies, the Special Relationship, compensation culture, women’s magazines, the EU, and David Blaine, not to mention his own personal battle against his middle-class roots.

Opening the show is Alistair WilliamsRecently crowned the £10,001 British Comedian of the Year 2023, Alistair Williams is quite simply one of the finest comedians around. Having exploded onto the stand-up circuit last year, Alistair is quickly making a name for himself with razor-sharp content and high-watt charm. He’s already become a regular at the UK’s most famous venues including The Comedy Store and Up the Creek and is constantly building an ever-growing international presence.

Unafraid of tackling rough subject matter, Williams is also a passionate health campaigner. Combining raw personal anecdotes with a jam-packed gag count and slick extroverted style, he creates bespoke comedy content to challenge the food and health industries, regularly grabbing the attention of leading megabrands. He believes real food can change your life, a narrative which is also the through line of his 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Show. Smart, passionate, impressively quick-witted and bursting with infectious confidence, this is stand-up that grabs your attention and Alistair Williams is quickly solidifying his place as one of stand-up’s most exciting rising stars.

With support from Canadian comic David TsonosIf you want serious comedy, David is not your man. With his friendly and confident persona, he intrigues everyone with his combination of banter and impulsive comments. His comedy stems from being the youngest of five boys, babysitting… his nephews and his cat. David started off in Canada and, since making the UK his home, he has performed in over 15 countries.
