Join us for a fantastic night of stand up comedy at the VAT & Fiddle !

Don’t miss this opportunity to see these 5 fantastic acts:

Alex Hyton (MC)

Best Show Winner Leicester Comedy Festival 2020

As Heard on BBC Radio 5 Live’s The Squad

‘Hylton takes charge of a room, fluent and funny storytelling is second nature to this comic’ – Wee Review

Michael Akadiri (Headliner)

Michael Akadiri is an multi award-winning stand up comedian and junior doctor who has been seen on Comedy Central LIVE, ITV2s Stand Up Sketch Show & BBCs New Comedy Awards.

His debut hour, No Scrubs was nominated for NextUp’s Biggest Award in Comedy and was a complete sell out at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe. It subsequently toured the country to great success in early 2023 and is now premiering as a stand up special on YouTube.

Chortle: “Hugely entertaining”, “Charismatic headliner”, “Sharp-witted everyman.”

Guardian: “Politically punchy”

Metro: “Supremely talented and likeable”‘

Jules OBrian (Opener)

Nominated for the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award 2022

“Funny as f***” Mama Life Magazine

“Splendid…a quality performance” Notts Comedy Review

Shortlisted for Funny Women 2021

Get Up Stand Up semi finalist 2022

Autumn Unwin (Middle)

A big fan of fresh bread, giving blood, and disappointing old primary school teachers when they meet up years later. After 5 years spent performing up and down the country with award-nominated improv troupes, Autumn’s finally written something down. Autumn brings an incredible amount of energy to the stage and is instantly funny. Autumn is the hottest property on the Midlands comedy circuit at the moment and is a guaranteed top performer.

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

Please be advised that our comedy line-ups are subject to change. Our talented comedians are in high demand and, on occasion, may need to cancel at short notice for television or radio recordings, among other reasons. Rest assured, we will always provide a replacement act of similar quality to ensure that our guests receive a great overall show experience.

While most of our guests come for the entire show, we understand that some may be traveling to see a particular comedian. If that’s the case, we recommend checking our website on the day of the show or joining our mailing list to receive the latest updates on any changes to the line-up. We’re committed to providing our guests with the best possible experience, and we thank you for your understanding.

This event is an 18+ event and may contain strong language.
