BRENNAN REECE
WINNER: ENGLISH COMEDIAN OF THE YEAR 2015
Brennan is a bright young rising star who was recently crowned ‘English Comedian Of The Year’. In his few short years as a stand up comedian Brennan has received many accolades and performed all over the world, most recently in his first Australian tour. His energetic and often awkward approach to life is captured in his fast paced, vividly painted, humorous stories and is establishing himself as a circuit regular. He has appeared in BAFTA winning drama Marvellous (BBC), toured with global megastars The Who (UK Quadrophenia Tour) and played in every major comedy club in the UK. Despite him being a relative newcomer his reputation is fast becoming that of a talent to look out for.

FOXDOG STUDIOS LTD
One of our favourite shows from the Edinburgh Fringe – we saw it five times! Digital, geeky, funny – basically a bit of everything! They had an outstanding Edinburgh Fringe this year and now they’re in Camden!

Seven facts that’ll change how you think about IT rock’n’roll… It is music and computer programming. It is by a real IT consultancy, who recently had a large corporation tax bill. They are recouping losses with this lecture series on PAT testing. Audiences connect their phones via our on stage wifi. Play our games, music, animatronic dogs. Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 compliant.

‘If Flight of the Conchords met Moss from the IT Crowd, and they had two illegitimate love children that they then left them in a room unsupervised – this would be the result’ – Broadway Baby
‘Ridiculously good fun and mightily impressive. It’s funny, too…if you don’t enjoy their brand of techy musical comedy, there must be something wrong with your hardware’ – Time Out

EXPECT THE UNEXPORCUPINE
2015 New Act of the Year Michael Stranney and Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Runner Up Olaf Falafel bring you an hour of fun-filled silly comedy. With a mixture of off-beat characters, one-liners, outlandish tales and an irrelevant spinning wheel, they invite you into their wholly unique worlds.

‘A delight’ – Chortle
‘both ambitious and very smart’ – EdFest Mag
