ALISTAIR WILLIAMS is quickly making a name for himself with razor-sharp content and high-watt charm. He’s already become a regular at the UK’s most famous venues including The Comedy Store and Up the Creek and is constantly building an ever-growing international presence.
Unafraid of tackling rough subject matter, Williams is also a passionate health campaigner. Combining raw personal anecdotes with a jam-packed gag count and slick extroverted style, he creates bespoke comedy content to challenge the food and health industries, regularly grabbing the attention of leading megabrands. He believes real food can change your life, a narrative which is also the through the line of his 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Show.
Smart, passionate, impressively quick-witted and bursting with infectious confidence, this is stand-up that grabs your attention and Alistair Williams is quickly solidifying his place as one of stand-up’s most exciting rising stars.
MARKUS BIRDMAN is one of British comedy’s most experienced and well-travelled performers. In demand all over the UK and abroad, Markus is a veteran of the Edinburgh Fringe with 11 solo shows to his credit and headliner status at all the top clubs, including The Comedy Store, The Komedia, Hot Water, The Stand and Soho Theatre. He’s performed at the Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth Comedy Festivals and was nominated by the New Zealand Comedy Guild for Best International Guest. His international gig list includes Pakistan, Singapore, China, UAE, Austria, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Finland and India to name a few. Which has been nice, considering no-one’s now going anywhere.
