Thursday – Bob Mills

BOB MILLS – is a bona fide comedy legend with over 30 years at the top of the UK circuit. You will recognise him from his cult classic 90’s TV show ‘In Bed with MeDinner’ and his presenting of ‘Win,Lose or Draw’ on ITV. He is one of the current stars of TalkSport Radio where he co presents every day with Jim White and TalkRadio where he has his own show ‘Tragedy Plus Time’ where he talks comedy to the biggest stars in the country. Perhaps his biggest achievement in radio was being crowned BBC 5Live’s ‘Fighting Talk’ champion of champions in 2010.

“He’s a master of irony, and wears his world-weariness well, teasing and wrong-footing the youngsters in the front row, and passing comment on the changing face of comedy, from someone who’s seen it all!” – CHORTLE

Thursday – Larry Dean

LARRY DEAN – star on the new series of Live at the Apollo!
He scooped the title of Scottish Comedian of the Year 2014 at just 23 years old. He was nominated for the Fosters Comedy Award for Best Newcomer in 2015 and in 2016 he won the Amused Moose Best Show. Having been compared to Kevin Bridges and Billy Connolly he is in demand to play the biggest comedy clubs in the UK. Television appearances including BBC Presents: Best Of The Edinburgh Festival and Live From the Comedy Store for Comedy Central.

“Has the easy charm of an arena comic and the high joke rate too” – The Guardian

Thursday – Gary Delaney

GARY DELANEY – Gary is a razor sharp one-liner comedian. He’s the premier gag smith of his generation and through twitter he’s become one of the most followed and quoted comedians in the country. He is a regular guest star on Mock The Week and has also appeared on Dave’s ‘One Night Stand’ and Comedy Central’s ‘The Comedy Store’. He has recently starred on Live At The Apollo!

“Expect a cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns from this master of the one-liner, a craftsman to be ranked along with likes of Tim Vine and Milton Jones” – The Guardian

Mini Comedy!

Thursday – Family Stage @ 18.30

We also have a family friendly comedy show, which big kids will love too! Nik Coppin hosts the Mini Comedy show. He is a globetrotting comedian who hosts kids shows all over the world.

First up is Olaf Falafel; Sweden’s Eighth Funniest comedian and celebrity children’s book author. His debut stand up show ‘Olaf Falafel and The Cheese Of Truth’ won critical acclaim and award nominations. As well as finding comedic success onstage, Falafel has also enjoyed online fame with his short viral videos. These absurdist movies include a croissant-coiffured talking Donald Trump puppet, slices of truth telling cheese being thrown onto newspapers and the Bee Gees hiding in his beard. His children’s book Old MacDonald Heard a Parp has caused endless fun in households up and down the country. He is the master of the Parp!

Second, we have Jay Foreman, guitarist and comedian whose unique repertoire falls almost exactly halfway between live music and sit down comedy. He has performed four critically acclaimed sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which included the hit kids comedy show, Disgusting Songs For Revolting Children (And Other Funny Stories). He regularly performs at ComedyClub4Kids where his hilarious songs get kids (and parents) stamping their feet & singing along!
