One of the funniest men to pick up a microphone’ Time Out
‘Likeable, intelligent and full of unpredictable energy’ The Scotsman
Jarred’s unique and larger than life persona has won him fans across the country, proving him to be one of the most likeable stars on the circuit. His energetic storytelling has earned him a whole host of accolades including a Chortle Award and has catapulted him to the forefront of our TV screens in shows such as Mock The Week (BBC2), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2), 8 out of 10 Cats, (Channel 4), Argumental (Dave), One Night Stand (Dave) and Let’s Dance for Comic Relief (BBC 1). His radio credits include Act Your Age (BBC Radio 4), and Flight of the Conchords (BBC Radio 2).
Originally from New Zealand, Jarred Christmas’ unique comedy style has taken him all over the world performing at comedy clubs, festivals and on TV and radio. A dynamic onstage persona combined with the ability to improvise with anything that’s thrown his way makes his comedy sizzle with originality.
More recently Jarred has branched out into acting, stealing the show in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at the New Wimbledon Theatre in 2011, where he starred alongside Warwick Davies and Priscilla Presley. Off the back of this season Jarred continues to work with Warwick, most recently on new web series, Dwarves Assemble. Back on TV, Jarred guest stars in episodes of Hollyoaks Later and Jonathan Creek.
'A quirky very funny new stand up...her style is refreshingly original and she's a seriously good writer' TIME OUT.
Harriet's talked on a stage all over the world - at places like The Sky Cat Laughs Comedy Festival in Kilkenny, Oslo Comedy Festival and Just for Laughs in Montreal. She has also supported some of her heroes on their nationwide tours, like Katherine Ryan, Stephen Merchant and Isy Suttie.
Credits include: The Radio 1 Comedy Lounge, BBC3 Comedy Marathon, The One Show Edinburgh Special and Kevin Hart's LOL Live.
Dave Fulton is opinionated, isn't afraid to pull punches in his observations, yet has a deceptively laid back stage manner that disguises a raw aggression. A varied melting pot of issues that sometimes even he doesn't want to explore. This is un-missable comedy from one of the most dynamic and innovative comedians breaking on the comedy circuit at the moment. His mother would never have thought it possible from someone who holds a Masters in Music Composition. Recently he's been seen on the BBC series The Stand Up Show, and Channel 5's The Comedy Store series where he took the roof off the prestigious club with his highly inventive perspective on life. Dave has also presented a feature for Newsnight on American culture to tie in with an exhibition at The Barbican.
