This event will feature two full length shows, previewed at the Darlington Comedy Festival before they debut at the Edinburgh Festival.


Rob Deering

Rob Deering - The One

There have been other Rob Deering shows, but this is The One; a one-man-supergroup live-music stand-up comedy event about the best-ever everything.

Over the years the award-winning guitar-playing comedian has cemented his reputation as one of the country’s finest stand ups, taking six solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival, headlining all the major comedy clubs throughout Britain and taking part in Paramount Comedy's Edinburgh and Beyond live show as well as his own Charmageddon and The Rob Deering Experience national tours.

On TV Rob's stand up appearances include The World Comedy Tour, The World Stands Up and Edinburgh and Beyond. Rob has also presented Soapstar Superstar - Bonus Tracks and Strictly Dance Fever, and appeared on Big Brother's Big Mouth/Little Brother as a regular guest. Rob has provided daily coverage for ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! and was the winner of the Weakest Link Comedians Special on BBC1. However he may still be best known for drinking his own wee on 99 Things To Do Before You Die.


“An evening in his company is nothing less than a joy” - The Independent

“Rather wonderful...” - The List

“Uses music to brilliantly accessorise his swipes at the innate gormlessness of contemporary culture” - The Guardian


Ray Peacock

Ray Peacock - Here Comes Trouble

Ray Peacock has been a very naughty boy recently and it is time to find out why. Join the double Chortle Award nominated (2011 & 2012) comedian and storyteller as he takes you through a myriad of mischief and misdemeanours in an attempt to get to the bottom of what on earth drives a grown man to such infantile behaviour.

Presenter of The Ray Peacock Podcast, The Peacock & Gamble Podcast, & BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club. As seen on Russell Howard’s Good News, Doctor Who, Skins and that sort of thing.

“Immensely talented – demands to be seen” - The Sunday Times

“An incredibly enjoyable show – cannot recommend it enough” - Absolute Radio

“Career apparently out of control, making hilarious, unrepeatable comic capital” - Chortle
