Fri 23rd FEBRUARY

 

 

 

 

Shappi Khorsandi, Tom Lucy, Jayde Adams

Shappi’s appearance in Thorner in 2009 clearly catapulted her to international fame 🙂 “She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency”  (The Guardian)

Tom Lucy is one of the youngest professional comedians in the world. “The best new comedian I’ve seen in ages. Believe the hype, this guy is hilarious” (Jack Whitehall)

Jayde Adams started working life as a fishmonger. “Third funniest woman in the world. Fact” (Dawn French)

 

SATURDAY 24th FEBRUARY

 

 

 

 

Russell Kane, Luke Kempner, Lloyd Griffith

Russell Kane appeared on the Thorner stage in 2008, returning a multi-award-winning comedian, presenter, actor, author & scriptwriter. “An exceptional comedian, his pace is relentless and his material beautifully observed and exquisitely crafted… inspiring and brilliant” (Chortle)

Luke Kempner is a regular on BBC Radio 4’s institution The Now Show and 4 Extra’s Newsjack. A multi-talented rising star. “Luke Kempner is a blummin’ genius” (Dawn French)

Lloyd Griffith is a comedian, a choirboy and an aspiring goalkeeper. “Inherently funny: voice of an angel, body of a trucker…” (Chortle)
