Comedy Tent

22.20 Anvil Springstien Stand up comic and compere Anvil Springstien is a law unto himself - enthusing his audience with an energy sparked by a delivery which holds no punches. Anvil powers his shows with his remarkable manic, improvising energies and charismatic story telling.

21.45 Duncan Oakley World travelled stand up comedian, musician, artist. He’s played music nearly all of his life. Guitars; rockin’. Drums; smashin’. Piano; sadly not his forte. Really he’s just an idiot travelling all over the place getting paid for being himself doing his best to raise a giggle, sometimes even a snort.

19.50 Boro Tin Tin The Belgian lad with a Teesside accent and a wicked sense of fun!

19.25 Adam Tempest .

19.05 Al Dawes A Cheery Billy Bunter of a lad, with a kind face and a warm heart. A bit like being licked into fits of giggles by Tommy Cooper’s St Bernard.

18.45 Break

17.35 Karen Bayley A stand up comedian with raw Eddie Murphy confidence, cheek and super-polished style.

17.15 Break

16.45 Ray KaneA slick, appealing crowd-pleaser with a strong hoodie-based song to lift the atmosphere, a nice visual gag to close and some winningly self-deprecating material to link it all together... very fine gags... strong delivery.

16.10 Steve HarrisSteve’s comedic ability comes from his flexibility and warm nature. Whether he’s dealing with hecklers or his mum has found out where he’s playing there’s always a level of warmth in his attack even if it is pre-emptive.

16.00 Chris Ramsey Fast emerging star with sure fire Geordie wit; this ace compere with questionable fashion sense keeps the crowd entertained from the moment he graces the stage.

There are more details on the website above (eg the georgian stages)
