If you want to be one of a few dozen people sharing a space uniquely and inexplicably conducive to the experiencing of live comedy (plus some home-baked cake) then this could be the whatever it is for you! We have another delightfully eclectic line-up that’s been ethically sauced and hand-picked for hilariousness.
Will Duggan is a stand up comedian, great friend, and handsome man. He has wonderfully crafted and perfectly poised material exploring, amongst other things, his own shortcomings and the dubious advantages brought about by human progress. As well as performing all over the comedy circuit and being a multiple Edinburgh Festival returnee, Will provides tour support for the likes of Zoe Lyons, Gary Delaney, Hal Cruttenden and Justin Moorhouse. Not only that but he’s also part of Funz and Gamez, the highly popular satirical childrens show that won the Edinburgh Comedy Awards Panel Prize. He opened at Square Hole back in 2014 and was hilarious then. The world of 2017 is a somewhat different place but Will has continued to hone both his act and his beard so buckle up and enjoy his wares and whiskers.

The Delightful Sausage
The Delightful Sausage is a sketch comedy double act written and performed by stand-up comedians Chris Cantrill (★★★★★, Ed Fest Magazine) and Amy Gledhill (“Silly, vivacious and very funny” Richard Herring). Chris has been performing for over 6 years and is a former Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year finalist (2013) who has been heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra. Amy has been performing for over 5 years and is a runner-up in the Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year competition (2013). She has also won the Red24 New Act of the Year competition. They have been performing as The Delightful Sausage for just over 1 year and have taken their first hour to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where those Southerners lapped it up like blue-top-tit-milk.
