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 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.
Twice Emmy-winning actor and comedian Fiona Allen has been a mainstay of our TV screens over the past two decades as well as an excellent stand-up comedian. She has starred in various sketch shows, including Goodness Gracious Me and The All Star Comedy Show, but most famously Smack the Pony. Fiona has also appeared in television dramas such as Dalziel and Pascoe, Coronation Street, in Happiness alongside Paul Whitehouse, and on film as Sandra in the film version of the famous Viz comic strip Fat Slags, and Smirgut the Fierce in Gladiatress. Most recently she has been in that little-known soap Eastender. Fiona won a whole new generation of fans in the second series of the hit E4 teenage drama Skins, playing Maxxie’s mum, Jackie Oliver (her on-screen hubby was Bill Bailey). She has also played the role of Georgia Stevenson in the BBC drama Waterloo Road, while often appearing as herself on comedy shows like Mock the Week and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.
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, Adam’s finally written something down. Adam brings an incredible amount of energy to the stage and is instantly funny. Adam is the hottest property on the Midlands comedy circuit at the moment and is a guaranteed top performer.
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
