This June you can see comedy magician Pete Firman (star of BBC1’s The Magicians), MC Chris Henry, Edinburgh star Keith Farnan, top writer and comedian Hal Cruttenden and, after his successful MC performance at our last Comedy Night, the return of hilarious stand-up, Tiernan Douieb.
Pete Firman is recognised as the UK’s leading comedy magician. Star of BBC1’s hit show The Magicians, Pete has also appeared on ITV’s Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford and Derren Brown's 3D Magic Spectacular on Channel 4. Pete is currently touring the UK with his new show, Jiggery Pokery so we’re extremely lucky to have him performing at our night.
'The audience is caught between guffawing laughter and amazed gasps.' The Guardian
Watch a video montage of Pete Firman in action.
After successful Edinburgh Festival shows in 2009 and 2010, Tiernan's 2011 show Tiernan Douieb vs The World took his previously fun, wordplay based comedy in a new political direction. Receiving brilliant reviews, the show explained his own political awakening and frustration at the world’s economic situation.
Tiernan was also listed in the Observer’s Top 50 Arts and Culture Tweeters, so make sure you follow him.
