Family Comedy Stage

Get ready for top notch Comedy Fun with a mixed bill of some of the finest, funniest and delightfully excellent family friendly comedians around.

Featuring the exuberant Patrick Monahan, the magic comedy nonsense of El Baldhiniho, musical tomfoolery by Jay Foreman and compered by one of two all-time favourites the splendidly funny Ben Van DeVelde and delightfully ace Bec Hill!!!

Jay Foreman

Jay Foreman is an award winning musical comedian whose songs have been heard on BBC Radio 4, Radio 4 Extra, The One Show, London Live TV and Dave Gorman’s UK/Ireland tour. Jay provides a devilishly cheeky hour of songs, poems and comedy for children of all ages and he regularly sells out entire runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. ★★★★ “With dark humour and wordplay reminiscent of Roald Dahl, he should more often than not grab the attention of even the most reluctant child..”

ThreeWeeks ★★★★ “My fellow child-wranglers laughed happily, probably even louder than their enthralled kids.”

One4Review ★★★★ “Disturbingly catchy… my daughter was still singing about caterpillar sick right up until bedtime!”

Bec Hill

Australian-born and now London-based, Bec has gained a cult following in Australia, the UK and Ireland thanks to her award-winning solo shows. She has a talent for incorporating arts and crafts into her stand-up routines, creating a unique and unforgettable comedy style that she calls “paper-puppetry”.
Her one-liners regularly feature in “best joke” lists by “reputable” sources like The Telegraph, Dave, The Guardian, The Independent, Daily Record and Buzzfeed, which isn’t surprising, as she is the creator of the UK’s only pun-based comedy night, Pun Run.
‘Bec Hill and her side-splittingly funny stand-up routine are a joy to behold… you’ll fall in love with Bec’s excitable attitude and her witty optimism. Definitely a name to remember with a smile’ Three Weeks Edinburgh
‘Multi-talented with brilliant observational material’ The Stage

Patrick Monahan

Winner of ITV’s Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesborough comic is a rising star on the comedy circuit. Full of an insatiable lust for life, his exuberant comedy is sure to get you laughing.

A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd…!)

‘High energy and conviction, his material is great; he’s going to go far’ The Sunday Times

‘Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen’ Daily Mail

‘Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous’ Three Weeks

Ben van der Velde

The stand-up comedian, actor and improviser has been spreading joy and nonsense to all four corners of England, as well as the more choice bits of Wales and Scotland over the past few years.

wonderfully improvised riffs… showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue’ Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
‘Flaunted his razor-sharp wit to hilarious effect leaving the audience bent over double’ Three Weeks
