Show Information

It's a Fringe sneak-peek double-header!

JAMES MEEHAN

Refreshingly nonchalant, James is an offbeat comedian with a razor sharp wit.  He is part of the cult comedy hit Funz & Gamez, and a member of the multi-award winning Gein’s Family Giftshop (as seen on BBC2 and recently commissioned by Sky).

This year he's had Soho Theatre seasons with both Funz & Gamez and Gein's Family Giftshop. He was also cast in the most recent series of BBC's Inside No. 9 with Reece Shearsmith and Stephen Pemberton.  James is working towards his debut solo hour for Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 and is hoping to perform at more festivals next year.   He has performed at Latitude, Kendal Calling, Udderbelly Festival, Tringe Festival and Deer Shed Festival to name a few.  

Currently appearing at: Manfords, XS Malarkey, Frog and Bucket, Funny Bones Comedy, Buzz Comedy

On his show

JAMES MEEHAN: BEAST WARS 

Multi award-winning comedian James (from Gein's Family Giftshop and Funz and Gamez) presents his debut show. 

One man's journey into finding out what the shit he's doing with himself. A look at class, race, growing up and whether or not he's actually called James.

HARRIET DYER

Fresh and unique, it’s a pleasure to spend time in Harriet’s company as she weaves her surreal and hilarious tales. An imitable raconteur, it’s easy to see how this new act is making a big noise.

Harriet already has heads turning with her baffling tales of a misspent youth, and bewildering personal tales that are so ridiculous, they must be true. Establishing her own style of material and delivery after such a short time, means Harriet’s stock can only continue to rise.

A unique comic voice, Dyer charms any room with matchless material, an offbeat stage presence and a truly whirlwind fizz of energy.

A strong You Tube following has emerged for Harriet’s channel; interviews with comedians and clips of comics car sharing have been given a unique twist with Harriet at the helm, and there’s plenty more to come.

On her show

Harriet has many voices that reside in her head. Some of them are legendary and some of them are a bag of dicks. All of them seem to be encouraging her to be a lone wolf. This isn't a bad thing though as we all have bedroom parties on Tuesdays. 

As heard on BBC Radio 4Extra.
