THE STORYBEAST

EDINBURGH FRINGE COMEDY AWARD BEST NEWCOMER NOMINEE

MALCOME HARDEE AWARD FOR COMIC ORIGINALITY NOMINEE

John Henry Falle (of Radio 4, Chortle-nominated sketch idiots, The Beta Males) hath now become The Story Beast. Behold his rattle-bag of demented tales, terrifying ritual and unrelenting Anglo-Saxon lolz…  One of the most unique acts on the comedy circuit, The Storybeast has been bewitching audiences with full-blooded acts outs of Beowulf as an East End gangster movie, telling the apocalyptic tales of Albion's future royalty or reading the dark thoughts that lurk in the minds of the audience.  

“A bearded force of nature.” Guardian

"White hot brilliance… one hell of an achievement." ★★★★ Time Out

ANDY BARR

A new addition to the innovative Weirdos squad who curated shows from the likes of double Edinburgh Award winner, Andy is part of a new wave of brilliantly stupid alternative comics creating big, silly comedy for 2017.  In his short time onstage he has already caught the eye of Tim Key and Harry Hill, who used him as tour support.

"Skilfully written and delivered lines...Barr's comic timing and gestures are impeccable." ★★★★ The List

ROSIE JONES

With her infectious laugh and high energy Rosie Jones has quickly become a must-see act on the comedy circuit. The ex-television researcher was awarded second place in the Leicester Mercury's New Comedian Of The Year 2018, and has already starred on 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Last Leg: The Correspondents. With seemingly no end to her talents, Rosie is also an incredible actor most recently making her primetime debut as Serena in a Silent Witness two-part special.

“It's rare to see a comedian who exudes such joy.” Chortle

“A depthless wellspring of joie de vivre, she’ll have any audience leaving uplifted.” Fest

“Wickedly funny and a delight to be around, Rosie Jones is on an upward trajectory and all expectations are that it will continue.” The List

VIVIENNE KAY

Vivienne started doing stand-up 18 months ago and has not looked back since.  The only act we’ve seen to successfully mix material on maypole dancing with Syria, her one of a kind voice and energy draws you in.  One notch below bubbly, her warm and charming take on the world belies a quick wit and sharp jokes.  

PAUL DUNCAN MCGARRITY

Archaeologist by day, comedian (and occasional crime-fighter) by night, Paul is a charming, eloquent and big-hearted storyteller, whose tales of awkwardness at school, on worksites and when eyeball-to-eyeball with a Ugandan rebel leader have left audiences in delighted bit and pieces the nation over. He’s also a core member of the Knightmare Live and Comedian’s Cinema Club casts.

“Like a very tall, funny, excited child.” The Scotsman

AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST: 

BEN VAN DER VELDE

Standing a statuesque five foot five inches high (not in heels) and weighing in at eleven stone (on a good day) Ben is the current light-middleweight contender for compering champion of North London.

"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle

"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.”  Huffington Post
