Pug comedy returns and are we back with a whole barrel of comedy goodness for you!

(Do note that line ups may be subject to change)

Grainne Maguire

Irish comedian, writer for 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and Radio 4's News Quiz and The Now Show!

'An engaging and natural performer with deep reserves of excitable energy. Can employ understatement with the dry mastery of a Father Ted script' (Chortle)

'Extremely funny' (The Times)

Stephen Carlin

Stephen Carlin began his stand-up career in 2002 and soon became a permanent fixture on the comedy circuit, supporting Stewart Lee and Stephen Merchant on tour, also appearing in Stewart Lee's 10 Best Stand-ups In the World Ever. As seen on ‘The Alternative Comedy Experience’, ‘Comedy at the Fringe’, ‘Edinburgh and Beyond’ and ‘Comedy Cuts’ ITV as well as featuring on Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’ and ‘Friday Night Live’,

'The whimsy and relaxed on-stage demeanour were a winner instantly... (Carlin) excelled in pedantry, married to exceptional use of language' (Leamington Observer)

'... if this man isn't a household name in five years' time, the world is even more lacking in justice than we could have feared' (The Scotsman)

Tiernan Douieb

Tiernan is a natural compere. He's like a big tickling stick... and that's a good thing. But don't take our word for it…

'An endearing and good natured performer (The Stage)

'This densely packed set is delivered by a comic with charm and a sweetly boyish perspective….Douieb has an accomplished and charming manner and some genuinely funny material' (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine)

'Douieb has more than enough energy to go round, and he's a hugely engaging onstage presence...' (British Comedy Guide)
