More stand-up from some new and not-so-new faces on the comedy club circuit.
Our headliner Tony Vino has been touring the comedy scene since early 2005 performing across the UK and internationally. He is best known for the way he seamlessly mixes well thought out observational humour with audience interaction and quick-witted responses.
His life and interests are wide-ranging and so is his material, all performed in a warm, friendly and non-offensive style. When hosting festivals and corporate events, Tony’s confident effervescent persona has been found ideal, and he is also a favourite on cruise ships.
To say East Ender Eddy Brimson has a colourful past is something of an understatement. A self-confessed former football hooligan before turning his hands to better use as a writer and comedian, Eddy has written a host of amusing anecdotal books, penned and hosted a top three selling video Teargas and Tantrums, and is also a regular talking head for numerous radio and TV shows on subjects as diverse as football, dodgy builders and sexy baldness.
As an actor, he has appeared on such diverse programmes as Absolutely Fabulous, The Thin Blue Line, Casualty, The Bill and EastEnders, where he played, you’ve guessed it, an East End villain, who torched Frank’s car lot.
"The crowd loved him." - The Guardian
Our opener and compere for the night, Lou Conran, started stand-up comedy in 2006 and has gigged regularly ever since, gigging up and down the country.
"Naturally funny" - Sarah Millican
"A great compere, quick-witted, and adept at handling large rooms" - Gary Delaney
"Lou Conran is a very versatile MC and one of the warmest we use: she judges a room and pitches her performance perfectly, not only is she very funny, but she also sets the room up for the other acts. We love her." - Lee Martin, Gag Reflex
