Nick Doody

Nick Doody

Nick Doody is one of the brightest talents on the comedy circuit. Sharp and topical, he’s not afraid to say what he thinks; his brand of political comedy and satire has won him fans all over the country, and all over Twitter as well, where he’s polled as one of the most influential names in British comedy.

Nick’s career as a stand-up got off to a pretty good start; whilst still a student, Nick supported Bill Hicks on his final tour of the UK... Bill himself had requested Nick.

Since then Nick has become a familiar face on the European comedy circuit, and he is also in demand as a writer for both television and radio, writing for the likes of The Now Show, The Late Edition and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

“Some of the best political material I have heard in a while... comic genius” - The Scotsman


Matt Reed

Matt Reed

Born and bred in Sunderland, Matt's affable style has won him fans across the UK. He effortlessly plays with the crowd with a natural rapport that is found in few comics. Matt, always ready, never disappointing will always make a good gig - great.

With so many gigs of every size under his belt, from 3000 to 30, there is pretty much no comedy situation Matt can't handle. As pleasant as he is wonderfully brutal, Matt is a welcome addition to any comedy night entertaining the crowd while skillfully destroying any heckler that crosses his path.

Over the past few years Tiernan has supported International star Jim Jefferies and Russell Howard, worked as warm up for Mark Watson’s We Need Answers, BBC’s Dick and Dom’s Funny Business.and played at some of the top music festivals in the UK.
