We’re a week later than normal so everyone can enjoy the fireworks, but the laughter will still be explosive, with fantastic comedy from:
Dave has gained a reputation as an inventive, exciting and extremely funny comedian winning applause from his audiences, respect from his fellow comics, and rave reviews from the critics. He has had two very successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in two highly acclaimed shows ‘Dave Johns On The Edge’ and ‘I’m in The Attic Mother’ at the Pleasance Theatre, the latter of which won the Spirit of the Fringe Award. He has been invited to perform across the world from Glastonbury to Hong Kong, Leeds to Bangkok and has performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in Australia and the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.
“He shifts from the sublime, to genius, to uproar in the blink of an eye…extremely entertaining” – The Guardian
“Dave Johns has an uncontrived manner and sense of fun on stage that most comics can only dream about” – The Scotsman
With top-notch support from…
Holly’s stand-up credentials were established with her 2008 Best Newcomer win at the Chortle Awards, and confirmed with an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination three years later for her debut Fringe show, Hollycopter. The show also enjoyed a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre in 2012. Holly has just returned from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, where her sold-out show ‘Never Had It’ was warmly received by audiences and critics alike. She has featured on many of the top TV comedy shows including 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Would I Lie To You? and Mock The Week. On top of this she is often heard on radio and has appeared on shows such as Just a Minute, The Unbelievable Truth, The Now Show, The News Quiz and Charlie Brooker’s So Wrong It’s Right for Radio 4. As well as these guest appearances, Holly is much in demand as writer for TV and radio and has written widely for both.

“Wry asides and delicate puns…genuinely endearing” – Fest Mag
