With appearances on 8 out of 10 Cats and Russell Howard’s GoodNews Bobby started comedy in Toronto. For his age, he’s done a lot. He decided to move to London in July 2011 after winning $10 000 in Bite TV’s Stand Up and Bite Me Comedy Competition. He tours Canada regularly with Yuk Yuks, is filming a Comedy Now special in October 2011 on CTV, has been recorded by XM and CBC radio.
Carlin has earned critical acclaim, accolades and a growing fanbase with his original and insightful writing style and accomplished delivery. He is very enigmatic act, using a unique pattern of delivery to amuse the audience with very unexpected and off the wall references. From his sartorial elegance to his in-depth and hilarious knowledge of International snooker, Carlin’s performance takes the audience into the mind of a passionate obsessive. This man is well on his way to become Scotland’s newest addition to its history of brilliant comedians. Named by Stewart Lee as one of the ‘Ten Best Comedians in the World Ever’.
Stephen was runner up in the BBC Witty and Twisted Competition 2007. Stephen was also awarded the Peter Titheradge Bursary in 2008 and worked with the BBC Radio Entertainment department on existing shows as well as developing new shows. Stephen has written for: The News Quiz, The Now Show, Look Away Now, Laura Solon Talking and Not Talking, Tilt, Secret World and The Stephen K Amos Show.
“The whimsy and relaxed on-stage demeanour were a winner instantly…(Carlin) excelled in pedantry, married to exceptional use of language” Leamington Observer
“If this man isn’t a household name in five years time, the world is even more lacking in justice than we could have feared.” The Scotsman.
“The material is sharp and original.” The List
“A delightfully off beat act who expertly applies twisted, convoluted logic to common-or-garden observations to produce genuinely original material…a definite tip for the top.” Chortle
“Stephen Carlin is fast establishing himself as one of the most distinct and funny new comedians in Britain.” Chortle
“The Sean Lock of his generation.” BBC Comedy Development
Ryan McDonnell as MC
Belfast boy Ryan McDonnell is no stranger to laughs in his home town and is currently building up quite a reputation for himself on the UK comedy circuit. Ryan interjects a sharp wit and Irish charm in his observation of everyday life. Sometimes bizarre, often dark he’ll guide you on a unique journey through the world as he sees it.
2010 saw Ryan make his debut at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in the prestigious Pleasance Courtyard from which critics at Three Weeks acclaimed his stand-up as “Apollo quality live comedy”.
Ryan was a runner up in the 2009 Amused Moose Laugh Off final in Edinburgh and a 2008 Magners Comedy Awards finalist. Other notable events have included Bloom Festival On Tour at Camden’s Koko in front of over a thousand people and playing to a packed and loving crowd in the Electric Picnic's ladies toilets. Venturing to the Edinburgh Festival in 2008 and 2009 he headlined various Fringe events. Constantly refining his art, Ryan is definitely one comedian you should not miss.
