One of the biggest, friendliest and funniest of bears working in the UK today, Pierre's comedy is a wonderful mix of Izzard-esque surrealism, erudite scholarship and daft day-to-day observational comedy. Pierre is a regular correspondent in BBC2's The Mash Report hosted by Nish Kumar and performed on the most recent series of Stand Up Central on Comedy Central. An acclaimed live act, Pierre was nominated for Best Club Comic at the 2017 Chortle Awards for two years running, whilst his latest show being announced as the seventh best reviewed comedy show across the entire Edinburgh Festival in 2017. ANDY FIELD Winner of the Chortle Student Comedy Award 2015, as well as finalist in the 2014 Leicester Square New Act of the Year,Andy has made an impact on the comedy scene with his unique style and fresh approach to traditional stand up. Gloriously daft and unapologetically silly, Andy charms every audience he pops up in front of with his uniquely childish view of the world. KATHRYN MATHER A relative newcomer to the circuit who is already making a big impact with her world-weary, bone dry comedy. She's already won the prestigious Beat the Frog World Series at the Frog and Bucket in Manchester and is sure to go on to bigger and better things. SARAH BENNETTO A charming innovator, master storyteller and brave transporter of 27 multi-coloured donkeys from London to Edinburgh via train for her show, Sarah has been delighting audiences for over a decade with tales of personal misfortune and cosmic musings. ANDY BARR A new addition to the innovative Weirdos squad who curated shows from the likes of double Edinburgh Award winner, Andy is part of a new wave of brilliantly stupid alternative comics creating big, silly comedy for 2017. AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST: AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST: BEN VAN DER VELDE Standing a statuesque five foot five inches high (not in heels) and weighing in at eleven stone (on a good day) Ben is the current light-middleweight contender for compering champion of North London.
