Comedy line-up 2022 (Friday)
Raymond & Mr Timpkins
Lightning fast choreography meets uber swift editing in a fantasmagorical collision of quality entertainment. An overload of velvet, sandals and multi-hued wool provides a startling accompaniment, the whole effect being that of a slim man and a fat man putting their bums in your face.
If you like music and let’s face it, who doesn’t, you’ll like it. If you like silliness, middle aged men dancing and unsavoury acts, you’ll probably love it. You should try it either way. See you there.
David is a lovable Welshman with an enthusiastic and endearing style that wows crowds with tales of his ex-girlfriends, lesbians and sheep. Slightly camp and delightfully tongue-in-cheek, you’re sure to love him.
Dinesh Nathan has been making waves on the South East Comedy scene, winning South Coast Comedian Of The Year in 2019. A very likeable and promising act.
As seen on BBC1 in the BBC New Comedy Award 2021, Winner of the South Coast Comedian of the Year 2021, writer for BBC’s “Newsjack” and co-founder of the Triple Chortle Award winning night “GOAT Comedy”.
Former Butlins Redcoat and proud Devonian Suzy Bennett ‘accidentally’ won the prestigious Funny Women Award on her 6th gig and has kept the laughs, and her Janner accent, ever since.
Wayne The Weird
Wayne’s ‘magical’ comedy is enjoyed by audiences all over the world both up close and on stage.
Comedy line-up 2022 (Saturday)
Mike has been performing comedy since 2011 and quickly made his mark on the comedy scene with his sharp-witted observational style which saw him crowned South Coast Comedian of the Year in 2014 as well as making the final of the prestigious Amused Moose Laugh Off in 2016.
“Like an Everyman, if that Everyman had delicious cynicism and razor-sharp wit.” – Romesh Ranganathan
His fresh takes on current affairs are consistently hilarious. This will be the first time many audience members would have laughed with, and not at, a conspiracy theorist. Clever, funny and insane.
A former South Coast Comedian of The Year Semi-Finalist, Duncan grips the room with his anecdotal stories and killer delivery. A quip a second, one of the most likeable presences on stage you’ll see.
New on the comedy scene and known by his friends (and customers) as the angry barman, Lee paints a vivid picture of his anxiety attacks through self-deprecating humour that will have the audience chuckling the night away.
The audience are instantly engaged by the confidence and warm personality of Sunjai. Laugh out loud as he covers tales about his family, speeding tickets and extremist rodents.
With your host / MC
Westcountry comedian Tom Glover is a ‘firm audience favourite’ (Chortle) with a set full of hilarious stories of family life and tales of living in the south west. Tom began his comedy career by making the finals of the South West Comedian of the Year competition and has gone from strength to strength ever since, most recently touring his award nominated debut show ‘A Glover not a Fighter’ at venues across the country.
Toms’ infectious personality and playful approach make him an instant hit with audiences. He combines his tales of fatherhood and country living with hilarious observational routines on daily life.
