Milton Jones? You know, the weird bloke with the shirts from Mock The Week! Comedian, writer and actor, whose stand-up is full of surrealism, nonsense and sharp wit. His style of humour is based on mostly one-liners involving puns. Jones has had various shows on BBC Radio 4, at the beginning of which he is sometimes announced as 'Britain's funniest Milton'.
'The wild-haired Jones has raised wordplay to the level of fine art' (Radio Times)
'He's fast, absurd and very funny' (Radio Times)
'No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride' (The Guardian)
'The best one-line merchant in British Comedy' (Chortle).
'Absurdist, one-line masterpieces' (The Times).
Ken Cheng is a YouTube sensation (with his character Mark Liu) as well of one of the UK's finest young stand-ups. He reached the final of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2015 (with Chortle noting in their review of the show that he should have won). He joins Gits and Shiggles fresh from taking his show Best Dad Ever to the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe.
"A fiercely accomplished talent" The Scotsman
"A winning stage cocktail of arrogance and vulnerability" The List
Yorkshire born comedian Maisie Adam took Edinburgh by storm in 2018, grabbing a Best Newcomer nomination at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for her show Vague, only a year after winning So You Think You're Funny?
"There's no denying that Maisie Adam is phenomenal" The Scotsman
"Mightily impressive" Chortle
After a 9 year hiatus from live comedy, William Andrews made a triumphant return to the 2108 Edinburgh Festival with his show Willy.
As seen on BBC's I'm Sorry I've Got No Head, he is also a board member of the critically acclaimed Alternative Comedy Memorial Society.
"Subtly endearing mix of the whimsical and astute, that is, rewardingly, so much more than it first appears" Chortle
Danny Garnell won the prestigious So You Think You're Funny? competition at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
"Beautifully observed details and asides" Beyond the Joke
