Paul McCaffrey has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new acts around, winning both The London Paper and the Latitude Festival new act competitions in 2009. In 2011 Paul took his debut solo stand-up show, Saying Something Stupid to the Underbelly, to great critical acclaim, having previously appeared as part of the Big Value Comedy Show and the AAA Stand-Up Show at The Pleasance.
Paul has been heard on Russell Kane’s Whistle-Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2) and is a regular guest on The Matt Forde Show (talkSPORT). He has also done studio warm-up for The Morgana Show (Channel 4) and That Sunday Night Show (ITV 1) and can currently be seen at some of the best comedy clubs in the country.
Paul recently filmed the stand-up spot on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3) and is currently involved in a new entertainment show being developed by Yalli Productions for BBC3.
Fin Taylor began performing stand-up whilst at Bristol University in January 2009. Since then he has established himself as a unique voice in the up-and-coming generation of new UK comics. He soon became professional and went on to tour support for Glenn Wool and Russell Howard, as well as regularly warming up for BBC ONE’s “Pointless” hosted by Alexander Armstrong.
His debut solo show at the Edinburgh Festival in 2014 was met with 4 star reviews and full houses throughout the month, with Fest magazine naming him as the stand-up to catch in their first issue (page 16).
In October, Taylor recorded a streamlined version of the show as a comedy album, ‘Fin Taylor: Live From the Wardrobe’ at a sold out Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol. The album is free to download and has also been uploaded onto YouTube in full. 2 Tours of Europe followed, through Switzerland and then headlining through Latvia and Estonia. He has acted in both BBC and Channel 4 online comedy shorts, and made multiple appearances on the Josh Widdicombe XFM show.
Carey Marx has been a circuit favourite for years, mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischievous and gleeful delivery. His wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places. This hilarious mix of edgy topics and playful gagsmithery can be seen at all the top clubs across the country with Marx regularly playing Jongleurs, Komedia and The Comedy Store and annually compering the largest festivals.
