Peter White is now a comedy veteran but shot to fame in his native Canada after he was named one of the top five “up and coming” comics after performing for less than a year! He’s gone on to be a bonafide international headliner and comedy star with his own hour long TV special on Canada’s CTV. With a string of award nominations and appearances at the prestigious Just For Laugh’s international comedy festival in Montreal, we feel blessed that we’ve been able to bring one of the worlds top acts to you in Grimsby. “Creates a room full of belly laughs – absolutely brilliant” Chortle Lloyd Griffith is surely the only comedian in the country who’s a tremendously funny comic plus ex-footballer and ex-opera singer – true! Lloyd is widely regarded as as one of the most natural, brightest and original comedians on the circuit and his act has indefinable wow factor. He’s also becoming a TV regular with appearances on BBC3’s Sweat The Small Stuff, BBC Radio 1s Live Lounge Comedy. In short, you’ll never see another act quite like this again so never was the cliché ‘too good to be missed’ more true. ‘The next big thing!’ FHM Paul Ricketts is an award-winning comic and has an air of likeable edginess about him with an indefinable air of rock n’ roll. Since 2005 this lovable cockney he’s been entertaining audiences across the UK and beyond with his own mix of sharp observations about life with cultural and satirical subjects intermingled with strange tales of ordinary madness. Sometimes silly, serious or surreal, sometimes autobiographical, political or near the knuckle – but always hilarious! “Really funny” BBC Your MC for all the above is Southport born Damion Larkin, one of Britain’s most promising comedy talents, renowned for being a spontaneous and lovable host. “One of the country’s top new comedians” BBC All line ups are subject to change, but don’t worry, we’ll only replace them with someone just as funny!
