HEADLINER – VIKKI STONE
“The bastard love child of Victoria Wood and Tim Minchin.” — The Scotsman
“THE AUDIENCE WERE ALMOST CRYING WITH LAUGHTER” — The Guardian
VIKKI STONE is best known for her original comedy songs, but is also an actress, musician and composer.
She has appeared on many TV and Radio shows, including: The John Bishop Show, BBC One, The Now Show, BBC Radio 4, This Morning, ITV, That Sunday Night Show, ITV, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here….Now, ITV 2, and many others.
She is the current presenter of the BBC Proms Podcast
“One of the highlights of the show… the embodiment of variety in the 21st century” The Stage.
“You stormed that lad” Jimmy Tarbuck
“Fabulous! Outrageous but Fabulous!” Michael Ball
Howard Read is a comic, writer, animator and actor, in that order. He is best known for being one half (and the other half), of the Big Howard, Little Howard, the world’s first human cartoon double-act. He is also an acclaimed stand-up comic, writer, author, illustrator and animator.
Howard has just finished making his 13 part series Little Howard’s Big Question on CBBC on BBC1, which is now being repeated on the CBBC channel. A sitcom, with facts, LHBQ has appeals to children and adults alike. Described by The Daily Mail as “a joy, with clever scripts that ring true of that magical time of childhood, while, thanks to Big Howard, it’s incredibly, achingly funny”..
Howard is a lot like the Kelloggs company in that he never makes cereal for anyone else. He also doesn’t generally write or animate for anyone else. He has made two acceptions in the past. Howard has animated four short films for Ross Noble which open his live shows on his world tours. He has also written, briefly for Ricky Gervais in the great man’s least well-received TV series Meet Ricky Gervais.
Howard headlines comedy clubs all accross the UK, as well as having gigged in New York, Iceland, Dubai, Shanghai and in the French Alps. He’s appeared on The World Stands Up on The Paramount Comedy Channel, ABC Australia and BBC America. The was nominated for the 2009 Toburg Musical Comedy Award for his much praised Unpleasant Lullaby. Howard appeared on 100 Greatest Celebrity Melt-downs (Sky One). This is one of his least proud moment, but apparently the one that most people have seen.
“Twitchen’s a terrific host, kind and self-deprecating with plenty of catty put-downs” – The Skinny
“Twitchen is an assured stand-up and navigates both his material and his venue with style… He is a flexible improviser, in tune with the spirit of live comedy” – Broadway Baby
With an incredibly endearing stage presence Aaron Twitchen is a stand up, actor, and living stereotype.
As well as featuring on BBC Radio 4, he was listed in Metro’s top 5 RomComs and has provided tour support for Luisa Omielan. He has also been releasing his sketch series, DiscoBlonde, in weekly instalments.
Away from comedy, Aaron has supported bands at music festivals, and is an accomplished stage actor and improviser. Unusually, he is also a trained circus act, concentrating particularly on aerial skills and trapeze work, which has allowed him to tour circus theatres throughout the country and teach young people.
WITH OUR VERY OWN COMPERE NICK WILLS!
