MC DAN NIGHTINGALE
A brilliant natural comedian, PAUL PIRIE comes packed full of energy and uses every ounce to maximum effect, with superb delivery. With a set that jumps from bitchy to silly, you're never more than a line away from a great pun, insight or well crafted punch line, delivered with a ferocity that makes Paul's humble beginnings on the Scottish circuit seem such a long time ago.
"CLOWNING AND QUICK FIRE GAGS... HIS PHYSICAL MANNERISMS HAVE A TOUCH OF ERIC MORECAMBE" Daily Record
Acclaimed stand-up comic and accomplished TV writer MERYL O'ROURKE revels in her bitterness. A potty mouthed potty trainer, she has delighted comedy audiences, written some of the best gags on telly and even hosted pop concerts. She supported Frankie Boyle for part of his last tour, at his request. She also supported him at the Hammersmith Apollo. In his book 'Work! Consume! Die!' he calls Meryl "Inspiringly funny".
Australian BRENDON BURNS has been performing comedy since the early 90s and is known for his aggressive stage presence and, at times, controversial material. He briefly hosted the 11 O'Clock Show and even more briefly the ITV2 spin-off show I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here Now!, walking off after just three shows.
However it is live where he has forged a reputation, with six live CDs to his name. He first appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1996, hosting the Comedy Zone showcase of new acts, and performing in his debut solo show 6pm Time To Get Up For Work. He has returned to the Fringe every year since, except for 1999, and in 2007 won its top prize, the if.comedy award.
