A hilarious night of comedy rounds off the Diversity Festival featuring five incredible acts
Winner of the BBC New Comedy Award 2014.
Since making his first stand up performance in February 2012, Ridley has already gained quite a reputation for being both very funny and very unique. He has been described as “a wonderful comedian” by Little Britain’s Matt Lucas and has warmed up for the likes of Ross Noble and Jason Cook. He also appeared alongside The Boy With Tape On His Face in front of 1,500 people at a charity gig in Edinburgh.
After supporting him on his warm up tour, Ross described Lost Voice Guy as “a very funny guy”, Sean Hughes thinks he is “fantastic” and Greg Proops says that he is “tremendous”.
“Finding humour in strange places is one of Lost Voice Guy’s strengths” – The Guardian.
“An Edinburgh Fringe one-off. Think Stephen Hawking reading the BBC News in the 1950s via a device programmed by the writers of the Viz” – The Herald.
He is currently Sarah Millican's go-to host and support act, MC'ing her new material nights Sarah Millican and Friends and performing as warm-up man for her television series "The Sarah Millican Television Show"Dress like a butterfly and sting like a scorpion!" as Mohammed Ali never said about Jonathan Mayor - the forgotten Bollywood love-child of Hinge and Bracket, Kenneth Williams and Eddie Izzard.
"Very funny" - Michael Palin.
"Marvellously Wicked" - Sarah Millican.
A man with a gift for storytelling and highlighting the absurdities of life, Kahn has been touring the length and breadth of the country trying to make sense of love, life, politics, the internet and multiple sclerosis. He’s no nearer any answers, but hopefully when he’s finished you will be.
Jackie Hagan is a one-legged, plastic scouser with the knack for pathos and laughter in the same breath. She undercuts awkwardness and taboo with smart, loving flippancy. She is a multi-award winning theatre-maker and committed community arts worker who believes in the power of creative expression as a mean for social change.
"Jackie Hagan is a unique and utterly compelling performer" - Matt Fenton, Artistic Director, Contact Theatre.
