“A fantastic character comedian” (Chortle) “First class comic acting” (The Guardian)

Nate Kitch: Basically Award-winning* comedian & nothing; thrusting aggressively into the absurd and against his own self.

Nate Kitch; the comic has wondered and baffled audiences as he ploughs forward on his own path of surreal entropy.

Described once as “Beckettian Clown” Nate steers clear of certainty and safe hands… but in times like these isn’t this exactly what we need?

“A real WTF? Comic” – Chortle

“Hints of Simon Munnery…off-beat..something very special” – Beyond the Joke

Caitriona Dowden: Caitriona Dowden is an award-winning standup comedian who mostly does standup to process her neuroticism and disappointment at not being born in the thirteenth-century. Chortle Student Comedian Winner 2022, Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year semi-finalist 2021.

“Unique and imaginative” (Chortle) “Lots of excellent gags” (British Comedy Guid) “Precocious” (Three Weeks)

Micky Overman: As seen on ITV2 and heard on BBC4, Micky Overman is an award-nominated comedian whose previous Edinburgh shows received critical acclaim. She has written for and acted in sketches for Channel 4, BBC3, Pulped and The Hook, and her social media sketches have received millions of views. She’s done tour support for Jamali Maddix, Fern Brady and Sean McLoughlin.

“A pin-sharp torrent of precision gags and delightfully silly one-liners” (The Observer)

“Top-notch lines that wouldn’t be out of place in an A-lister’s Netflix special” ★★★★ (Chortle)

And don’t forget to arrive hungry as we’ll be joined by the award-winning Focaccia Co (@thefocacciaco) serving up some street food favourites including arancini, halloumi fries, mac ‘n’ cheese balls and their infamous handmade Focaccia sandwiches!
