The line up.

l Brian Higgins, Scotland’s finest ginger-haired comedian, moved to London in 1994 to further his career in shoplifting.

Higgy, as he is affectionately known, enjoys his comedy and it shows in a very strong set.

His stand-up material derives from life stories, memories of his paramedic days, drink, religion, jocks living in London and his loony childhood.

With an energetic delivery, Brian touches on the funny side of life’s ups and downs.

His first appearance at The Edinburgh Fringe was in his own show Haggis and Curry with Britain’s first Asian comedian, Jeff Mirza, playing to packed audiences.

lJoe Bromehead’s is an everyday story of being expelled from school, accidentally setting fire to the factory in his first job, becoming a boxer, then cage fighter, doorman and debt collector before possibly as self retribution for the earlier factory misdemeanour, becoming a fire fighter.

So not much to draw on for his act, then.

Original and energetic, Joe’s on the fast track to success.

l Scott Bennett is one of the brightest new talents on the circuit, with a warm, engaging stage manner and delivery that belie his relatively short time in the industry.

Since bursting onto the circuit in 2009, Scott has charmed audiences with his delightfully witty comic observations about life’s little quirks, relationships and the subtleties of human behaviour.

l Welshman Noel James is a true original, revered by other comics as a true artist, the gag count in his seemingly stream of consciousness set is astounding.

Didn’t like that one?

There’s another coming along in seconds.

A one off in every sense of the word, he has been described as surreal, bizarre, absurd, intelligent, accessible and very, very funny.
