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


Patrick Monahan

Patrick Monahan - Shooting from the Lip

Brand new stand up show from the loveable Teesider, known for his hugs, dancing and cake eating! 2011 Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award winner! 2011 ITV's 'Show Me The Funny' Winner. 2012 Loaded Lafta's winner!

As seen in BBC One's Let's Dance for Sport Relief, Pat's a regular on the UK comedy circuit, and is in demand at comedy clubs throughout Europe, and also in the Middle East, thanks to his chatty, friendly style mixed with his hilarious story telling.


“Star in the making” - Telegraph

“Born to be a stand-up” - Metro

“Omid Djalli meets Dave Allen” - Daily Mail

“High energy and conviction, his material is great; he’s going to go far” - Sunday Times


Al Pitcher

Al Pitcher - Tiny Triumphs

People catching the train. Getting something for free. An apology, when you are proven correct years later – all TINY TRIUMPHS. All things that don’t change the world but make you so bloody happy.

Born in England, raised in New Zealand and now living in Sweden. He is probably unemployable and wanting you to laugh until you wee. With many awards for his comedy worldwide, Pitcher is far too wise to mention this to a Northern English audience. So come along and experience this TINY TRIUMPH.


“Pitcher's a truly hysterical comedy force - this show is one of the funniest and most unique hours you're likely to see this year. So don't miss your chance to catch one of the true gems of the comedy scene” - TimeOut

“The Kiwi motormouth’s crowd skills are second to none” - The Stage

“If this clever, funny, intelligent man comes your way, then grab your ticket with both hands and don’t let it go. You would not want to miss out” - One4Review
