TRIPLE WINNER at Chortle Awards 2016 – Award for Innovation, Breakthrough Act and Comedians’ Comedian

★★★★ – The Times
★★★★ – The Guardian
★★★★ – The Telegraph
Time Out’s Number 1 Comedy Show of 2015
Jayde Adams is “the future of British comedy” (Diva Magazine) “Britain’s funniest woman comic” (The Daily Mail) and “A fearless force of nature” (The Independent). Jayde won the prestigious Funny Women award in 2014, a London Cabaret Award in 2013, was nominated in 2013 as The Hospital Club’s Top100 People in The Arts and in 2016 was nominated for the Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer Award for her sell out, multiple 5 star achieving, debut show, which also went on to sellout at the Soho Theatre.
After appearances in 8 out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, BBC2’s Gert Lush Christmas with Russell Howard, Sky1’s Sick Note with Nick Frost and Rupert Grint, and Channel 5’s Borderline, it’s safe to say that when Dawn French says “Jayde Adams is the 3rd funniest woman in the world. Fact,” she might just be onto something.
Richard Todd: Sellotape
‘Deprived of meaningful work, men and women lose their reason for existence; they go stark, raving mad.’ Hear hear Dostoevsky! Like a piece of forsaken sellotape stuck on a wall, the neurotic ditherer Todd clings to nothing but his place on the earth.
‘A brilliant observational comic as well as an engaging story teller and marries the two into something wonderfully funny.’ – Kate Copstick in the Scotsman
‘Constructing complex, bewilderingly intricate sentences from the far reaches of a vast vocabulary, he occasionally calls to mind a persecuted Daniel Kitson, or an intelligent Russell Brand. Ultimately though, Todd emerges as a talent entirely of his own. The left-field subject matter he tackles is rooted in the everyday, and we identify with him for all his wildly eccentric thoughts and behaviour.’ – Lewis Porteous, Fest ****
‘Flashes of brilliance with complex, imaginative surrealism and an endearingly chaotic style.’ – The Skinny
Red Richardson has been called ‘The most exciting new comedian of the last few years’- he has also been called a lot of bad things too (FAKE NEWS). After performing his hit 2016 Edinburgh Fringe show ’The Red Richardson Experience’ he is now preparing for his debut solo hour ‘Red’ that has already been tipped to win The Nobel Peace prize. If you like your comedy with an edge then he is not to be missed.
