Stand Up in The Basement • Birthday Bonanza • on Tuesday 20th March 2018
★★★ STAND UP IN THE BASEMENT ★★★
We've been doing this gig for one whole year! So it's only right we celebrate with one whopping line-up.
As well as familiar faces from TV, we feature some of the best circuit comics, plus new raw talent and occasionally a few big names who wanna come and try out some new material. You get to see a diverse range of comic talent in the perfect setting: small, intimate and underground!
MARCH 2018 LINE-UP
★ MILO MCABE as Troy Hawke
Homeschooled by an overly nostalgic mother, Troy confronts the 21st century as if waking from a 1930's time capsule... with insightful and hilarious consequences.
Alongside TV appearances on Blue Go Mad in Ibiza (ITV2), Live at the Electric (BBC Three) and Benidorm (ITV1), Milo is an established character comedian with several successful Edinburgh runs under his belt, twice nominated for Best Show at The Amused Moose Laughter awards and listed as one of GQ magazine’s Top 10 shows of the Fringe.
'Undeniably funny' **** (Chortle.co.uk)
'Perfectly worded jokes' **** (BroadwayBaby.com)
★ MORGAN REES
Morgan is a welsh comedian with a densely packed set of one-liners and short anecdotal stories. He has reached the prestigious finals of Chortle Student Comedy Award 2017 and BBC New Comedy Award and came 2nd runner-up in So You Think You’re Funny 2017.
'Super charming and delivers warmly' (Chortle.co.uk)
★ NATHAN CATON

'Funny, clever and a pleasure to listen to' (Broadway Baby)
'A charming and convincing operator' (The List)
