OLAF FALAFEL

A unique mixture of one-liners and Scandinavian-tinged stories has earned Olaf the purely fictitious title of ‘Sweden’s eighth funniest comedian’. His recent exploits include coming second in the 2014 Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, beating the Comedy Store’s infamous Gong Show (twice just to show off!) being crowned the 2013 Golden Jester and also being named Last Minute Comedy Club’s New Act of 2013.

"Absurdity so well-crafted that silly doesn't do it justice." Evening Standard

“Quirkily eccentric… combining modern technology with old-fashioned idiocy.” The Scotsman

"Falafel has a talent for the tangential with the ruthlessness and timing of any talented stand-up.” Fest

“A mixture of audience interaction and jokes worthy of Milton Jones. His easy confidence and a sense of performance endeared him to the crowd.” Chortle

OLGA KOCH

EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD BEST NEWCOMER NOMINEE 2018

Olga Koch does stand-up comedy onstage and creates cathartic performance art in the privacy of her own home. She has trained at the UCB Theatre in New York, as well as the Soho Theatre and the Free Association in London. With a background like that it's no surprise that she was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe last summer. 

"A naturally comic mind." Beyond the Joke

"Hugely charismatic." Broadway Baby

CHRISTIAN TALBOT

Christian is an inventive and subversive comic and performer who has delighted crowds at various Fringe festivals for the past few years with his unique take on one-liners and excellent personal storytelling.

“An absolutely engaging performer. The women next to me nearly dislocated something, so much was she laughing. Can’t say fairer than that.” The Scotsman

“Talbot has a show which has the potential to be a hit at home and abroad.” Ed Fest Mag

FRANCESCO DI CARLO

Francesco De Carlo is an Italian comedian, radio host and TV writer from Rome.

Starting his comedy career with some of the most high profile comedians in Italy, Sabina Guzzanti, Neri Marcorè and Trio Medusa (La7, Rai3 e Rai Due), Francesco became one of the hosts of the most popular show on Rome’s Radio Globo, and is at the forefront of the new generation of stand up in Italy. During his sharp ascent, Francesco has won multiple awards, including the Festival di Cabaret di Grottammare and the Talenti Comici, and his TV appearances have included four series of Stand Up Comedy and three series of Comedy Central News on Comedy Central Italia. As a former political scientist, spending four years working as a press officer at the European Parliament, Francesco became disillusioned by the political sphere but found he had plenty of comedic material…

Francesco made his Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut in 2014 and firmly set his sights on his international career when he performed as part of the Comedy Sans Frontieres project alongside Eddie Izzard, Dylan Moran and Alex Edelman, produced by Mick Perrin Worldwide.

His international career has since taken him across the world, performing in English in over 15 countries, including taking part in the Comedy Central International Showcase at JFL in Montreal and the Johannesburg International Comedy Festival.

“English may not be his first language…but he is fluent in comedy.” Eddie Izzard

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
