Carl started performing stand-up in 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting comedians. His conversational, silly sense of humour saw him win a host of awards (Chortle Best Newcomer 2007, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007 among others) and become a regular at all of the finest comedy clubs in the UK and Ireland.
In 2009, Carl performed his debut solo show Relax Everyone, it’s Carl Donnelly! at the Edinburgh Fringe for which he was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. Since then, Carl has returned to Edinburgh with three further solo shows and will return with another in 2015, after his nomination in 2013 for the Fosters Comedy Award.
Carl has also appeared on various TV shows including Mock The Week, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, Dave’s One Night Stand, Stand Up for the Week, Russell Howard’s Good News,
“Excellent, fast-rising comic with pacy anecdotal routines”
Adam is a stand-up comedian, actor, TV writer and general cheeky-guy from London.
He can’t imagine the queen with wet hair and he finds it hard to get his head around the fact that his cat has a grandad but he is keeping an open mind. A woman in a car park in Gibraltar once granted him a wish when he was 6 and he wished that he could fly. Nothing yet but he won’t give up dreaming. That’s kind of what Adam is all about xox
*This is a really big deal and he didn’t win but he got a trophy anyway and there was free food at the ceremony.
