Headliner – Howard Read


Saturday 7th October

Howard Read-   a stand-up comedian, animator and aspiring song-writer best known for his work with his animated sidekick, Little Howard. His other creations include an angry manager with a conversational style and the worldview of Bernard Manning called Roger T Pigeon and “H:BOT 2000”, a robot from the future. Each of these characters interacts with both Big Howard and each other.

Howard Read is also known for his on-stage human ‘Guess Who?’ act where the audience guesses who he has drawn on a large pad of paper, sitting down as their questions exclude those of a certain appearance until only one person is left standing.

He also performs a few solo stand-up sets at recommended venues, where his brilliant adult humour is interspersed with little poems and short songs.



Stephen Cookson - currently being booked for paid middles as a clean, deadpan comedian with quirky one liners and dry observations.


"Old whippersnapper and worryingly funny. Frankly I hope he stops doing comedy before he costs me work" - Gary Delaney

“Stephen Cookson has some of the finest crafted one-liners on the circuit today. He also possesses a finely tuned comic timing way beyond his experience as a newer comic” - Phil Walker

“Deadpan one-liners that were perfectly executed and written. Had one lady hyperventilating and begging for him to stop. The quality of this man’s gags are up there with Milton Jones and Gary Delaney” - Bryan Malcolm (The Haha Club)



Paul Savage -  since starting  comedy in 2007,  he has performed over 1500 gigs all over Britain, from the highlands of Scotland to the bottom tip of Cornwall, and hundreds of places in between including six runs at the Edinburgh Festival, starting with the Free Tea and Biscuits Show, which set a record for having the most genuinely homeless people in one audience front row (7).

Since then, he’s performed the critically acclaimed fringe shows “All The Jokes In The Bible” (2014) and “Tired and Emotional” (2015). He is also the co-wrote and starred in the profane blasphemous game show Hell to Play (2015) which returned to the Edinburgh fringe in 2016 with an all new script.

An accomplished cartoonist,  chief

 “Genuinely brilliant. Writes a good joke, draws a good cartoon: an all-round hoot” The Guardian

Compere – Marvyn Dickinson


Marvyn Dickinson’s had it tough. Is it his mum’s fault? She loved soul music you see. Heartfelt life stories abound, from menopausal greetings at the RSPCA, to North Korean midwives.
Nando's New Comedian Of The Year 2014 Finalist
"Shouldn't have told Star of BBC's BAFTA nominated DNN, and many television appearances.

 Marvyn how funny I thought he was then he wouldn't have asked me for a poster quote" Tom Binns
