Gavin Webster

Gavin Webster


2014 Comedian's Comedian of the Year winner

Gavin Webster has been on the rise. He’s been on the rise for over twenty years. After making his modest debut in a pub in Gateshead in February 1993 he's done about three thousand gigs from Aberdeen to Abu Dhabi, Manchester to Melbourne and Hartlepool to Hong Kong.

Gavin Webster's shows are high octane, close to the bone and quick fire, with many gag to the minute routines, peppered with sardonic songs that are finished by the time you decide you need to complain about them. Black humour, observations and moronic jokes complete the unique and stand-alone experience of seeing this greatly original, angry comedian.

Very much the last ever punk rocker, people that take to Gavin Webster are fans for life and stay loyal to him throughout. His unique style has brought him praise and attention from throughout the national media, as well as many roles on TV and radio, including an appearance on Never Mind The Buzzcocks.


“Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you’ll find” - The Scotsman

Andy Wilky

Andy Wilky


In 1995, Andy Wilky tried stand-up comedy for the first time, adopting the stage name Smug Roberts; the "Smug" came from an event in his life where people teased him for being a "smug bastard" and the "Roberts" was adapted from his middle name. Caroline Aherne and her then-husband Peter Hook watched his set and she put him in contact with an agent. Six weeks later, He performed his first one-man gig.

In 2000, Andy headlined with Paul Merton and John Thomson at the opening night of the Manchester Comedy Store. His appearance there lead to a role in the film 24 Hour Party People (2002). He has also appeared on television, with roles in Cutting It, and BAFTA winners Buried (Channel 4), and Cold Feet (ITV).

Andy has also appeared in nearly every television production by Peter Kay and his recent work includes playing landlord Mr Foley in the BAFTA winning Mrs Brown's Boys, and the films Looking for Eric (Ken Loach), and Almost Married.


“He neatly subverts the crowd’s expectations by presenting the exact opposite of what they are anticipating” - The Guardian

“A brilliant act, he defies description and has to be seen” - City Life

“A master storyteller” - Radio Times

 


Pete Otway

MC Pete Otway


Since starting to perform in 2010, Pete Otway has quickly gained momentum, establishing himself as an extremely strong new act. As comfortable and confident as an MC as he is an act, he is booked regularly to do both, and was a recent finalist in the 2012 BBC New Comedy Awards.

With an affable and conversational style, mixed with an energetic stage manner and original writing, Pete is quickly making a name for himself on the UK circuit, and is certainly one to watch.


“Devastatingly funny” - Chortle

“Amiable, cheeky classic stand-up” - Liverpool Echo

“An amazing comedy talent, and we are making sure we are making sure we follow his every move in his ever rising career” - Crispy Comedy Club

 

This show will also feature a newer act in the middle.
