Andrew Maxwell: Showtime

★★★★★ “One of the most significant comedians working in the country today” – The Independent

With “SHOWTIME” Andrew continued his long run of domination of the Edinburgh Fringe. A memorable cocktail of personal stories, astute political observations and the odd surprise foray into character cameos, it won yet another barrage of five-star reviews for one of the festival’s most universally acclaimed acts. Now, it’s ‘showtime’ for the rest of the country.

Andrew is known for his eagle-eyed, passionate current-affairs comedy, showcased in his many appearances on BBC Radio 4 (News Quiz, Welcome To Wherever You Are, Public Enemies). He’s been seen on – among others – Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News for You (BBC One), Celebrity Juice (ITV2) and Mock the Week (BBC Two); and to a whole new generation he is the devilish voice of MTV’s Ex On The Beach.

★★★★★ “Showtime is a masterclass in mirth, sublime timing, and killer punchlines” The Herald

Justin Moorhouse: Northern Joker

“He charms the pants off the crowd” – Sunday Times

These days Justin’s not certain about anything apart from his uncertainty – Brexit looms, it appears the Cold War is being rebooted and that’s before we begin to worry about what’s happening in America…..closer to home he’s starting to feel redundant as a parent.

One kid is leaving home, the dog is getting older and doesn’t need much walking, and the youngest kid hits thirteen and cancels the family subscription to The Beano.

On top of this the golden age of the Northern straight white male comedian has gone the way of the dinosaurs. How will he adapt if he wants to survive? What next for this Northern Joker? What can he talk to his daughter about now she cares little for Dennis the Menace and the Bash St Kids? Hang on. Perhaps nothing has changed that much.

When he was thirteen, the Russians were scary, the White House was a madhouse and he’d never been to Europe anyhow. Thinking back this was when his reading habits changed too, more Dark Knight than Desperate Dan, more Catwoman than Minnie the Minx. Perhaps our heroes never went away….they just waited for us to pick them up again. Perhaps she just needs a different type of comic.

“Comedic tour-de-force… brought a tear to a critical glass eye” – The Herald

“Simultaneously down-to- earth and out of this world” – The List

“The amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration” – Guardian
