Your HEADLINER- Fiona Ridgewell 

Fiona has a skewed view of life, she’s watched one too many Disney films and its affected her grip on reality! Join her on her magic carpet, as she dives under the sea because you’ve got a friend in me!

​“Fiona has funny bones and an easy warmth on stage. She has actual gags, an increasingly rare commodity in today’s wispy, live blogging forum of comedy. She knows about delivering the funny stuff not commenting on it or talking about gigs she’s had, but life experience made recognisably hilarious.”- Julia Chamberlain

Your OPENER- Tawny Owl

Tawny Owl sits at the centre of a Venn diagram overlapped by the corners of Tim Key, The Mighty Boosh, James Acaster and Paul Foot. With everything from raps about cheese vans to comedy poems, Tawny Owl draws you into his surreal world where anything can happen!

Your HOST- Rhodri Buttrick
Rhodri is a rare concoction of sarcasm and silliness. Leave logic at the door and allow this anarchic eccentric to show you the world from his peculiar perch. He is also the man behind Stand and Deliver Comedy.
