The line-up

Mark Dolan

Headline act: Mark Dolan

“So funny. Mark Dolan is a master of improvisation and audience interaction. Definitely one not to miss.” (Festmag)

Recently seen on Channel 4’s The Jump, Mark is best known as host of Channel 4’s iconic comedy series Balls of Steel. He also fronted three hit series of globetrotting documentaries for C4 (The World’s …and me) - in which he met the most extraordinary people on the planet, including the smallest man, tallest woman, richest teenager, cleverest child and the owner of the world’s largest breasts! A Sunday Times bestselling book followed, The World’s Most Extraordinary People and Me, published by Harper Collins. A follow-up edition, “Do You Mind If I Put My Hand On It” was released two years later.

Nick Elleray

“A classy act, turning the loud Aussie stereotype on its head.” (Chortle)

Laura Lexx

Laura Lexx

"Optimistic, exuberant... it's difficult not to love her just a little bit... comedy really suits her.” (ThreeWeeks)

Quirky natural Laura Lexx is one of the most effortless comedians making a splash on the UK comedy scene. She is an exceptional live act, doing well in the BBC New Comedy Award in 2012 and 2014 and reaching the finals of both the Paramount Comedy Award and Chortle Student Comedy Award in 2009. A very versatile comedian, she has gigged across the UK and Europe, including several festivals and as tour support for Russell Kane on his “Posturing Delivery” tour.
