Join us at Duke of Edinburgh on Thursday 21st February 2019 for a night of stand-up comedy from some hilarious and amazing comedians from the circuit.

 

The line-up is:

 

MC – Philip Simon

 

WINNER of the Jewish Comedian of the Year 2015

WINNER of the Lastminute Comedy Comedian of the Year 2015

WINNER of the Kill for a Seat Comedian of the Year 2015

Philip is one of the most sought after comperes and opening/closing acts working on the UK comedy circuit today. He gigs throughout the UK, as well having performed as far flung places as America, Scandinavia, Europe, The Middle East and New Zealand where he headlined at The Classic in Auckland.

 

"Philip Simon is never less than hilarious" - The Stage

 

"With Philip Simon as compere comedy is guaranteed" - The Jewish Chronicle

 

Opener – Richard Todd

 

Richard began stand-up in 2011 after his doctor suggested he try a hobby before anti-depressants. After two months gigging, he returned to his GP. 'YOU NEED DRUGS!' he declaimed (in a more professional, but less comedic, way).       

 

"A smart surrealist" - The Independent

 

"Some comics have a gift of words that touches their work with wonder. Richard Todd is such a comic… A painfully funny show… like finding The Fall guesting on X-Factor" - The Scotsman

 

"Warm, personal, unique, very funny" - Chortle

 

Middle Acts – Ant Campbell

 

Ant Campbell is truly blossoming into one of Liverpool’s most exciting new comedians with his cutting edge yet warm humour mixed with his self-deprecating nature.

 

"Sensational" - Keith Carter

 

"Best new act I've seen for years" - Always Be Comedy

 

Headliner – Dave Green

 

Dave has been doing stand-up comedy since 2011. Since then his otherworldly persona and paranoid riffs on everyday life have fast proved popular with audiences in the UK and beyond. In 2018 he did his debut stand-up show ‘Melt’ at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. “The show established him as a keen writer who approaches the everyday from a different angle” (Chortle)

“Fantastically original gags” - Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke

 

"A keen eye for the absurd" - Wee Review

 

"Highly watchable deadpan style" - What’s on London

 

Tickets are £8 each and can be purchased directly from the Duke of Edinburgh or online from TicketSource.
