CARL DONNELLY

Carl is an accomplished stand-up comedian and is a regular at all of the finest comedy clubs in the UK and Ireland, he has been nominated for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy award for Best Newcomer with Relax Everyone, it’s Carl Donnelly! and Best Comedy Show with Now That’s What I Call Carl! Volume V. His conversational, silly sense of humour has seen him win a host of awards (Chortle Best Club Comedian 2017; Chortle Best Newcomer 2007; Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007; among others)

As well as being a notable British comedian Carl has ventured overseas to Australia and regularly appears at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Carl has also appeared on various TV shows including Mock The Week (BBC 2), One Night Stand (Dave), Stand Up for the Week (C4), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave). His radio appearances include The Back End of Next Week (BBC 5live), Loose Ends (Radio 4) and Act Your Age (Radio 4) as well as being a regular guest on talkSPORT. He has co-hosted a radio show for the Fubar Radio app and an acclaimed podcast that he recorded with Chris Martin.

Carl and fellow comedian Julian Deane currently host the podcast Two Vegan Idiots.

HEIDI REGAN

Heidi brings her silly, surreal style to relatable topics like relationships, being the hot one in the couple (we've all been there), and King Alfonso 13th. She offers expert relationship advice based on her extensive experience of TWO whole relationships and makes a case for going back to the time when she repressed all emotions with very stupid jokes.

With more than a decade’s experience as a comedy writer, Heidi enjoyed a meteoric rise through the stand-up comedy ranks. She has won two of the most coveted prizes in comedy; the So You Think You’re Funny? title at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, before scooping the BBC New Comedy Award prize in 2017. She has since gigged around the world, including performances at the prestigious Just For Laughs in Montreal and tour support for Joe Lycett, Phil Wang and Milton Jones.

“Multitude of laugh-out-loud moments” ★★★★★ Scottish Daily Mail

“Excellent, fast-rising comic with pacy anecdotal routines” Sunday Times

“Donnelly has developed a style that is the antithesis of the loud, sweaty, manic comic so prevalent on the telly and live tours at the moment. This is stand up with valium: near horizontal levels of louche that take the mundane stories of everyday life and turns them into stretches of self deprecating silliness” The Guardian
