“Like watching sunshine” – Notts Comedy Review

David Eagle (Headliner)

David is one of the funniest, fastest rising acts on the comedy circuit. He recently starred on BBC Radio 4’s “Now Show” and performs at the UK’s top comedy clubs every week.

With David being blind, his comedy often explores how his disability means the most ordinary, commonplace events are turned into surreal and convoluted dramas. Occasionally he dons his accordion (often as a spiteful repost to hecklers) and performs one of his comedy songs, such as his George Formby parody, described by the Guardian as “a comic tour de force.”

​As well as being an officially funny stand-up comedian, David is a member of three-time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning band The Young’uns.

Having previously conquered the world of folk music, enjoying all of the trappings that come with it – the money, the glamour, the women – David branched out into stand up. He was crowned New Comedian Of The Year by Leicester Square Theatre in 2019 a year which also saw him win new act competitions at Bath Comedy Festival and Nottingham Comedy Festival, and has been nominated Best Newcomer at the Chortle Awards.

“Brilliant, Nuts. Heartily recommend,” Rufus Hound.

“If not for the virus, David Eagle would be closing nights, constantly. A genuine stand up phenomenon! Looking forward to hearing more.” (Reginald D Hunter)

“Just seen the future of stand up comedy and his name is David Eagle.” (Boothby Graffoe)

Doug Carter (Opener)

Winner of the Midlands Comedy Awards Best Newcomer and Rising Star in consecutive years, 2018 and 2019. Notts Comedy Review Best Newcomer, 2018. NCF New Comedian Competition winner 2019.

‘Carter had the audience eating out of the palm of his hand almost as soon as he picked the mic up.’ – Peter Fox – Notts Comedy Review

Jack McLean

Jack McLean is a comedian from Hull, now living in Leeds. He started performing stand-up in September ‘21 and has been an emotional wreck ever since.

Having been shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Awards 2022 Showcase he went on to win the inaugural Bask in Laughter competition as well as picking up gong show victories at both the Hull Comedy Lounge and Funhouse Comedy Club in Derby.

“Hannah was captivating, off the wall and laugh out loud funny from the moment she walked on stage” – Toolmakers Comedy Club

BBC Caroline Aherne Bursary Award Shortlist Nominee

Eddy Midgley

Eddy Midgley’s quarter life crisis hit him like a shovel. Now, he attempts to find humour in his most chaotic stories and scrapes. As a self diagnosed hypochondriac, who spends a bit too much time in the pub, Eddy has knack for going off on personal over-sharing tangents, that will be sure to get the room bouncing from laugh to laugh.

“This cheerful and happy looking comic gave an engaging performance that everyone enjoyed. A fast moving set and he built up a lot of momentum. The makings of a formidable act and his energy fills the room.” NottsComedy Review

“A cheeky, wonderfully engaging delivery mixed with excellent writing and quick thinking. A future star.” Top Notch Comedy
