‘There is undeniable logic in his humour that adds to the general hilarity, especially when delivered with such easy charm and panache’ – The List
Straight from the hugely successful ‘Plusnet’ telly adverts, hailing from Dewsbury (a town otherwise famous for international terrorists, fake kidnaps and ‘Britain’s Best Market’), no nonsense Northerner Craig is currently one of the hottest rising talents on the comedy circuit. Described by Jo Brand as ‘bloody funny’ and bbc.co.uk as ‘a downright hilarious performer with reams of brilliant material’ Craig is an instant crowd pleaser with a charismatic, mock-confrontational style guaranteed to wreak havoc on the funny bone.
‘Utterly brilliant, he’s going to be a huge star’ – Time Out
Andrew has been bringing ‘an abundance of charm’ (Manchester Evening News) to comedy clubs around the UK for for years now and has already progressed to the ranks of being a regular at the illustrious Comedy Store. The Cork native immediately gets audiences on-side with a likeable, bewildered style described as ‘impossible not to warm to’ (Chortle). In 2010 he teamed up with Joe Lycett for An Hour Of Humour – a dual Edinburgh Festival show which garnered packed houses and rave reviews throughout the month, including a ‘Must See’ award from The Stage. The show proved to be so successful that it has since been performed to similar acclaim around British venues. He has since performed his first Edinburgh solo show ‘Ryanopoly’ to equally impressive critical acclaim and has recently signed to the very influential agent Lisa Thomas Management. Evidently the big time awaits.

Compere – Lewis Charlesworth
‘A side-splitting set by Lewis Charlesworth; performing with the confidence and cordiality that many comics would kill for’ – BSH Magazine
Lewis has established himself as one of the most upbeat, high energy, engaging and silly acts on the circuit.

So watch this space as he plans to spread his wings of mirth.
