We’re back with this doozy of a line-up in November, the month of cold and airborne explosions when it’s most prudent to retreat indoors with friends, comedy and cake (hopefully entirely vegan, and not inadvertantly lathered in animal labour juice this time).
Described by The Guardian as “Like TV Burp if Harry Hill was on PCP”, David Trent has been blowing minds since 2012 with intelligently depicted yet hilariously explosive observations of modern day pop culture. Smashing on to the comedy scene in 2012 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his debut solo show ‘Spontaneous Comedian’ David Trent wowed audiences and critics alike with his unique brand of tech heavy comedy and high octane audiovisual onslaught, selling out the 26 night run and receiving a nomination for the coveted Foster’s Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. Further recognition quickly followed with a run at noted London comedy haunt, The Soho Theatre and another nomination, this time for Best Breakthrough Act at the 2012 Chortle Awards. David has since been storming the UK’s comedy circuit with entertainment that The Scotsman has described as “a searing blend of live rage and mashed-up video content”. He’s since taken numerous critically acclaimed shows to the Edinburgh fringe, including 2017’s ‘Here’s Your Future’. Trent is a force of augmented nature.
“The future does look grim, but thankfully Trent will find ways for us to laugh at it.” ★★★★ — ShortCom
“His use of video, animation and repetition is brilliant and unique…genuine originality.” — Chortle

“A first rate comic mind.” — The Guardian
“His performances are intense, fearless and original.” — LondonIsFunny
Near-the-knuckle entertainment for the jovially insane, Scarlet Sohandsome is on the cutting edge of the drag scene. She represented Manchester’s premier fetish club in Drag Idol 2017 and has also worked alongside the biggest names in Drag including Bianca Del Rio and Michelle Visage. Razor-sharp stand-up effortlessly paired with tantalising audience interaction. Like Joan Rivers, but younger, sexier and not dead.
“a f*cking pro… a top-class on-point example of a drag comedian” ScotsGay
