Description

Welcome to our monthly new material stand-up night, where you get to see award winning comedians for a fiver.

Garrett Millerick is an acclaimed stand up comedian, writer and director. His unique and versatile style has led to him being in great demand on the alternative and club circuits both in the UK and internationally and he recently made his television debut performing stand-up on the hit US late-night talk show Conan (TBS).

His breakout live show Sunflower became one of the best reviewed and most talked about shows of 2018, both at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and subsequently at London’s Soho Theatre. The show saw packed houses for both runs and added additional shows to cope with demand. The show was Time Out London’s No.1 Comedy Pick for February 2019, and secured Garrett a nomination for ‘Breakthrough Act’ at the 2019 Chortle Awards. Sunflower was recorded as an album and is available to purchase internationally from 800 Pound Gorilla Records.

Garrett’s follow up show Smile surpassed Sunflower, once again selling out its run and adding extra shows. The Times called Smile one of the stand out shows of 2019 and The British Comedy Guide named it one of the best reviewed shows of 2019 by. Smile  transferred to London before touring the UK. Garrett’s next show 20/20 will head to Edinburgh in August 2020.

His sitcom Do Gooders recently recorded a pilot for Audible produced by Hat Trick Productions and starring Jack Dee and Meera Syal. It is currently being developed for television.

Hunter. She has been a panellist on BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz and Where’s the F In News? and The Blame Game (BBC Northern Ireland). most recently Eleanor appears in Holding, a new TV adaptation of Graham Norton’s debut novel.

Eleanor’s style is “deceptively sharp” (Fest Mag) and filled with her trademark acerbic wit.

Her solo shows regularly receive rave reviews (33 must-see shows of the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Herald Sun) and she has been featured on Sunday Times list of Top Ten Female Stand Ups To Watch and Chortle’s 2019: The ones to watch.

Guaranteed to lift the mood in any room, Gbemi Oladipo is an exciting new comedian who tantalises his audiences with his charismatic approach to contentious topics.
His engaging and unpredictable writing style combined with his high energy performances have seen Gbemi nominated for the BBC’s New Comedian of the Year, and win the Max Turner Prize for Comedy and The Comedy Stores King Gong.
Gbemi also wrote and starred in the award-winning “F*ck My Life – Most Racist Uber Ride Ever”, a story based on one of his real-life experiences. The short film produced by Pulped Productions won the prestigious Broadcast Digital Awards in 2020 for Best Short-Form Format. It was also nominated for a Webby Award for Comedy (2021) alongside videos from James Corden (winner), Trevor Noah’s the Daily Show, and The Simpsons.
