Steve Harris – Headliner

Steve has been a stand up comedian for over twenty years and burst on to the comedy scene by winning the coveted North West Comedian of the Year Award on his fifth ever gig. Shortly after, Steve earned his way to the final of the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award and So you Think You’re Funny Comedy Award. Throughout the years Steve has become a regular headliner at some of the most respected comedy clubs in the UK, and has done support slots for Johnny Vegas, Peter Kay and Lee Evans on their UK tours.

Steve’s confident, observational and physical performances have earned him international status as he has performed all over the world including performances for our British Troops in Afghanistan. Aside from comedy, Steve has deservedly earned TV credits on movies and shows like Funny Cow, Love, Lies and Records and most recently Coronation Street. The ability to make a range of audiences laugh and the talent to be versatile in front of a TV camera are not Steve’s only talents, he was once a lead singer/rapper in eighties/nineties rap band, First Offence and possesses musical talents and a keen mind for comedy writing.

Tom Wrigglesworth

With a disarmingly charming delivery and unforgettable appearance, Yorkshire funny man Tom Wrigglesworth became a major star when he won a highly acclaimed Sony Award for Best Radio Comedy recently and Tom has won many awards including the Chortle Best Show Award, and a nomination for the main Edinburgh Comedy Award. This led to a sell out tour of the UK, and appearances at the New Zealand Comedy Festival and prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.

Further television credits include being a regular contributor on The Discovery Channel , the Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Russell Howard’s Good News and The Comedy Gala all for BBC Three as well as The World Stand’s Up, Edinburgh and Beyond and three series of The Comedy Store all for Comedy Central.

Since winning the Channel 4 new comedian competition So You Think You’re Funny in 2003, Tom is now firmly established as one of the most original, talented and respected comedians on the UK and International comedy circuit. Tom is also a regular host of Radio 4’s Comedy Club, and has also guested on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Newsquiz, The Unbelievable Truth, The Now Show, Act Your Age, It’s Your Round, The Infinite Monkey Cage, You and Yours as well as BBC Radio 2’s Out To Lunch and Claudia Winkleman’s Arts Show. He has had regular guest performances on BBC 6’s Jon Richardson Show and has co-presented on Richard Bacon’s Radio 5 Show and The Rhod Gilbert Show on BBC Radio Wales.

Sean Gorman

Since starting his comic career, Sean has quickly proven to have a bright future in stand up.

Within the first couple of years he has reached the finals of the Reading Fringe New Act, Piccadilly Comedy Club New Act and South Coast Comedian of The Year competitions.

Displaying the stage presence of a more seasoned comedian, his deadpan delivery of self deprecating humour have the audience hanging on every word.
