The Best in Comedy
Following the sell-out debut show, The Best in Comedy show returns this September with another top line-up featuring the hilarious Simon Brodkin, Adam Hess & Travis Jay!
Acclaimed character comedian and “the world’s most famous blagger” (The Daily Telegraph), Simon Brodkin is now performing as himself.
Star of Britain’s Greatest Hoaxer (Channel 4), Simon hit global headlines multiple times for his high-profile stunts, including handing Theresa May a P45 during her speech at the Conservative Party Conference, showering disgraced FIFA president Sepp Blatter with bank notes, surrounding Donald Trump at the opening of his golf courses with 60 swastika-emblazoned golf balls, attaching a 25-foot sign to the side of Sir Philip Green’s super yacht, and going on Britain’s Got Talent as the ultra-orthodox Jewish rapper Steven Goldblatt, – fooling Simon Cowell and the other judges to win four ‘yeses’.
Simon’s most famous character is “comedy legend” (The Sun) Lee Nelson, writing and starring in two series of BBC Three’s ratings smash Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show and the sketch series Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People, which introduced the nation to a plethora of brilliant characters.
“Get him out!” – Donald Trump
“Stupid tosser” – Boris Johnson
★★★★ “There aren’t many better comedians” – The Telegraph
An internationally-acclaimed live act, headliner Adam Hess is an Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated chap and star of ITV’s Tonight at the London Palladium & The Stand-Up Sketch Show as well as Live from the BBC. He’s five foot eleven, he hates other families’ plates, and he had his 18th birthday party on a riverboat on the Thames, so when people realised how boring it was they couldn’t leave.
★★★★ “For good quality gags per minute, there is no better comedian” – The Independent
Travis Jay is an international comedian, who was nominated for The Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year.
A creative, animated and intelligent performer, Travis has built a reputation for being an absolutely hilarious and sometimes controversial storyteller. Travis has had a busy year writing for classic hit show Spitting Image, appearing on Channel 4’s Black, British and Funny, Dave’s Late Night Mash, Comedy Central’s Drunk History and ITV’s The Stand-up Sketch Show.
★★★★ “Extremely likeable and hilarious“ – Ed Fest Mag
Recommended for over 18s only.
