Headliner ADAM BLOOM
As seen on Mock the Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Russell Howard’s Good News
Adam Bloom was 18 months old when his parents nicknamed him “The Voice”! When he was 10, he told them he was going to be a comedian. By the age of 23, he was. He has appeared in Comedy Festivals all over the world, including numerous sell out Edinburgh shows.
Adam’s three radio series, “The Problem With Adam Bloom” have been highly rated on Radio 4.
“He’s been one of my favourite stand-ups for about ten years. Bloom not only has meticulous, brilliant lines, but also an intense and fragile honesty”
“In the premier league of comedy” The Independent
“Bloom is perhaps the perfect comedians” The List
‘A light-speed wit, focussed over years at the pinnacle of stand-up’
From Oldham, Dominic spent 6 years working his way up the McManagement ladder at McDonalds. In 2001 he threw in the McTowel when he saw comedy as a way out of his McJob. Since then he has quickly risen to a regular performer on the professional stand-up circuit. Dom’s confident and cheeky (sometimes grumpy) persona charms audiences as he paints images of the quirky people he meets. Always in demand as headliner, support and compare he performs regularly all over the UK.
He has performed live on BBC 2 and ITV and was a regular in MEN@Work The Comedy Store’s topical show in Manchester.
Nominated for Best Breakthrough Act at the Northwest Comedy Awards 2004.
His set is a fast paced ride through his life and the things that annoys him most. He explains in sidesplitting detail why he hates driving, gives an invaluable lesson on how to steal from the post office and reveals all about his days behind the McDonalds counter.
“Effortless delivery” The Times
“Engaging material” Manchester Evening News
“Dominic has a keen eye for observational comedy and genuine funny bones.” bbc.co.uk
“Insightful and humorous observations.” Guardian
A unique mixture of one-liners and Scandinavian-tinged stories has earned Olaf the purely fictitious title of ‘Sweden’s eighth funniest comedian’. His recent exploits include coming second in the 2014 Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, beating the Comedy Store’s infamous Gong Show (twice just to show off!) being crowned the 2013 Golden Jester and also being named Last Minute Comedy Club’s New Act of 2013.
“Skilfully delivered absurdist musings”
“A wonderful hour of professional silliness”
“Falafel has a talent for the tangential with the ruthlessness and timing of any talented standup”
