PHIL ELLIS
@thephilellis

Phil Ellis is an award winning comedian who has entertained audiences of all ages with his amalgamation of off-beat observational material and physical comedy.

Solidifying his reputation in 2014 with his undisputed anarchic sleeper hit of a show Funz and Gamez, Phil won the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award’s panel prize. After meeting incredible critical acclaim, Funz and Gamez was broadcast as part of BBC Radio 4’s Fresh from the Fest, as well as part of BBC Comedy Feeds (BBC Three). The show went on to have an 18-show run at the Soho theatre, slots at all major comedy festivals, as well as a further run at the Udderbelly on Southbank. Phil’s most recent Edinburgh show, Phil Ellis is Alone Together (But Mostly Alone) (2016) continued this success.

Phil’s TV appearances include Drunk History: UK (Comedy Central), as well as writing and performing credits on BBC Three’s The Tapeface Tapes. Phil also co-wrote three comedy shorts- Phil’s Ill- for Dave. These won ‘Pick of the Day’ status in multiple publications including The Times, The Guardian and The Daily Mail.

"Ellis sets such a cracking pace… he flits around the audience with his frisky, easy banter spreading a feeling of good-humoured fun." Chortle

"Ellis emerges as a very clever comedian with a deep understanding of the genre." The List ★★★★

"Much cleverer and much more stupid than you might think." Chortle ★★★★

KATE LUCAS

Award winning musical comedian Kate Lucas is known for her razor sharp and deliciously dark songs. She combines catchy melodies with original lyrics to showcase her playfully bitter musings on life. Audiences have come to expect examples of what not to say and how not to behave from this gloriously talented young comic. In 2014 she took home the title for the prestigious Leicester Mercury New Comedian of the Year and her performances – as well as her debut Edinburgh Fringe show – have since been met with huge critical acclaim.

“Belly laughs and wide-eyed did-she-really-say-that horror.” Fest

AND YOUR GUEST HOST:

MARK CRAM
http://www.markcram.com/

For the last few years Mark has been plying his comedy trade across the UK. Constantly evolving, usually unpredictable; he is garnering positive reactions everywhere he goes.

A gay comedian who bucks the trend by being about as camp as a Die Hard boxset, Mark thrills crowds with his tales of dead end jobs, his family, being the less than grateful winner of Bedford Comedian of the Year (although we’re quite proud of his win) as well as his sexuality
