“Damn that dude is funny!” Steve Harvey, Showtime at the Apollo (U.S.). “punctures an expectation and implies a whole bizarre reality in only 12 words” Brian Logan, Guardian . “… no topic is taboo… a unique and witty perspective on thoughts that many have but rarely articulate” Adelaide Advertiser (Australia). “His fast-paced performance is refreshingly brutal” Ed Fringe Review. “Mars’ pithy observations are sharp and on point” broadwaybaby.co.uk

MARY FLANIGAN in the middle!

A TV researcher and member of BBC Northern Ireland’s Comedy Writers Room, Mary Flanigan started doing stand-up in her native Belfast, and has continued to pursue comedy since moving to Kings Heath, Birmingham, at the beginning of the year. Her approach to comedy is “constantly changing,” though she name-checks Tina Fey, Josie Long, Ross Noble and Maria Bamford as key inspirations.
