JOHNNY CANDON

One of Ireland’s most sought after comedians; Johnny regularly performs at comedy festivals all over the world. He has delighted audiences as far afield as Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, The Middle East as well as all over Europe.

 

A regular at all the major clubs across the UK and Ireland, Johnny has toured the UK with John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman (“The Daily Show”, “Political Animal”), supported Ricky Gervais on his hugely successful tour, “Animals” and Neil Delamere on his “Creme Delamere” tour of Ireland.

Johnny was a founding member of the critically acclaimed “Robin Ince’s Book Club” performing with acts ranging from Robin Ince (obviously), Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant, Russell Brand, Stewart Lee, Bridget Christie, Simon Amstell, Josie Long, Ian Hart and James Franco

 

"The new Dave Allen", Ricky Gervais

"Amiably told by a likeable raconteur, this is an engaging tale", The Scotsman

 

TOM WRIGGLESWORTH

Sheffield’s very own drops by to the club where it all started for him. Now firmly established as one of the most original and talented comedians on the UK and international circuit, charismatic wordsmith Tom began his ascent up the comedy ladder in 2002. In 2003, he scooped first prize in Channel 4’s prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition and a year later he was nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer. Since then, he has continued to take the UK circuit by storm. An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they’re old friends.

LLOYD LANGFORD

A prolific writer and performer, Lloyd Langford is proving himself to be a highly sought after act with his striking combination of natural wit undercut with a playful curiosity. Born in Wales but currently living in London, Langford's act is an ever-evolving mixture of personal anecdotes, memorable one-liners and topical material. Lloyd has numerous tv and radio credits but is most well known as Rhod Gilbert’s flat mate on BBC1’s Ask Rhod?.

“A lugubrious Welshman with a knack of turning out juicy one-liners, Langford is a rising star.” The Guardian

“A rich tapestry of jokes at his command.” The Independent

"The sharpest of comedy instincts and an innate grasp of timing and pace…Makes stand-up look deceptively simple." Chortle

“His laidback, charming approach to comedy makes him instantly likeable.” Time Out

"Some really fine gags…A lovely contrast of this very benevolent delivery with some quite edgy material." Stephanie Merritt, The Observer

"An expertly executed set." BBC Oxford

“A quick and instinctively funny mind.” Metro

“A born banterer, Langford handles swerve balls with ease.” The Stage
