Russell will be joined by:
Kelly Convey is an ‘in-your-face and reassuringly confident’ (Chortle) comedian who is not one to mince her words when giving audiences an insight into what modern women really think. While her outspoken and forward-thinking musings may go against the grain, ‘there’s a winning authenticity to her material’ (Chortle) that is refreshing and relatable. Voted by The Metro as ‘1 of 9 Hilarious Women to Look Out for in 2017’, Kelly Convey is, no doubt, one to watch.
‘Talented Newcomer.’ – Time Out
‘She’s a sassy, convivial figure… Plus she knows how to turn a phrase…’ – Chortle
A storyteller at heart, Gibson mixes a conversational style with his own unique brand of dark humour. Scott’s natural talent has seen him being handpicked to support some of the UK’s top comedians including Frankie Boyle, Kevin Bridges, Tom Stade & Daniel Sloss.
Scott firmly established himself as a comedian to watch following rave reviews from audiences and fellow comics alike for his debut show Life After Death. Following a Sell Out run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016 Scott was crowned Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards, becoming the first Scottish act in history to do so.
‘A natural gifted storyteller.’ – Frankie Boyle
‘You need to remember his name because he’s going to be big.’ – The Mirror
From Live at the Apollo, The News Quiz and Fighting Talk. A little slimmer but still as “belly laugh funny”
Manchester Evening News, everyone’s favourite northern charmer is back on the road and better than ever.
The Guardian said “the amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration”.
‘Comedic tour-de-force… brought a tear to a critical glass eye.” – The Herald
