With an incredibly endearing stage presence, Essex-boy, Edd Hedges, has a natural affinity with an audience and since winning So You Think You’re Funny in 2013 his career has skyrocketed. Being a runner-up in subsequent finals of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year and Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year, Edd went on to feature in Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Just The Tonic’s Big Value Show (Edinburgh 2014) and the Machynlleth Comedy Festival which also marked his radio debut on Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club with Arthur Smith.
Combining sound effects, one-liners and silly drawings, Darren Walsh's silly happy-go-lucky style has been compared to Harry Hill, with an act that combines surreal nonsense and snippets of daft songs.
Luke Stephen first started as a playwright in 2003. By 2004 his play The Final Days of Simon Bacon received rave reviews and had a successful three-night sell out run at the Palace Theatre in Southend, Essex.
In 2007 he turned to stand-up. In the following years he was a semi-finalist at the ‘Laughing Horse New Act of the Year’, and finalist at ‘Comedy Café New Act of the Year’. Since then Luke has been giving a fresh view on the world that surrounds him culminating in a debut show that is surely one not to be missed.
