The award winning Paul F Taylor is zany, wacky, off-beat, madcap and just a bout every adjective around crazy you can imagine. He’s also one of the country’s most exciting and unique comedians. His own style of humour blends quirky one liners with surreal observational flights of fancy to fantastical effect. This apparently lost and bewildered fool works perfectly with his wonderfully unconventional ideas.
“Relentlessly daft absurdism” The List
“An enticing, dizzying prospect, who whips through a welter of daft, Harry Hill-like ideas and diversions and chucks characters around with the agility of the Pajama Men.” The Independent
“An impressive knack for both observational wit and quirky flights of fancy.” The Evening Standard

Dave Chawner is a number one best-selling author, award-winning stand up, presenter & mental health campaigner.
Dave’s 1st Edinburgh show, Normally Abnormal, sensitively used humour to explore his anorexic past. The show received critical acclaim, had sell-out shows and went on UK tour. As a result, the show was given an award by The UK’s Eating Disorder Charity at The Houses Of Parliament in 2014.
In 2015 Dave was asked to give a TED Talk on the topic of eating disorders. This caught the attention of a publisher and he was asked to write a book based on his experiences. This became Weight Expectations – part memoir, part self-help guide aiming to engage, entertain and educate people about anorexia.
Since then Dave has gone on to do shows about adult circumcision, veganism and mental health.
He’s a stand-in for BBC’s Mock The Week & Channel 4’s Taskmaster, a regular Friday presenter on The Talk Radio Breakfast Show with Julia Hartley-Brewer and has appeared on BBC Breakfast, ITV’s Lorraine, Jeremy Vine On 5, Radio 1, Radio 2 & Radio 4.
He’s also very funny and an act not be missed for his relatability and all round giggle inducing act.
“Thank goodness for Dave; he tells his invaluable story with humour and tongue in cheek charm…hilariously entertaining” The Mail on Sunday
”Quirky, moving & hilarious” Indy 100
“This is one comic you have to make the effort to see” The Scottish Herald
Tal Davies is an emerging comedian and writer who was crowned Best Breakthrough Act at the 2021 Midlands Comedy Awards. Since starting out in 2019, Tal’s performed at comedy clubs and festivals all over the UK, and was a Funny Women semi-finalist as well as being shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award.
Her comedy writing has been recognised by BBC Writers Room, who invited her to be part of the 2021 Coventry Voices programme, and the strength of her writing can also be seen on stage, as she balances toe-curling anecdotes with dry observational humour, delivered with a warm, likeable stage presence and a deadpan Brummie accent.
Your MC and host is AdamVincent - twenty years ago aged 19, he was a fresh child prodigy becoming one of the top acts in Australia. Word quickly spread to the UK and he’s now a well loved joke machine over here too.

He’s also a well respected and regular writer for Adam Hills ‘Last Leg’ (Channel 4). Many of the jokes you hear on that show have been written by this Aussie genius.
