The Colonel Fawcett, 1 Randolph Street, London NW1 0SS, UK - Map
Good Ship Comedy presents:
Safe, socially-distanced and still the best value comedy show in London, we are delighted to be returning to The Colonel Fawcett with more tremendous acts from the UK and International Festival circuit.
Fin Taylor has made a name for himself as one of the most talked about comedians working in the UK. His successive Edinburgh shows “Whitey McWhiteface” and “Lefty Tighty Righty Loosey” were 5 star sell-out runs, and cemented his reputation as a fiercely funny and uncompromising social commentator. He went on to appear on Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Battle’ and ‘Live From the Comedy Store’ as well as making his own series for the Channel, “Fin Taylor plays Bullshit Bingo”.
“The most discussed, and critically lauded comedian of recent Edinburgh Fringes.” ★★★★★ The Scotsman
“Phenomenal…Taylor is on top of both his game and the zeitgeist.” ★★★★★ Chortle
“A gutsy, ingenious and fearless truth-teller with the jokes to back up his attitude”. ★★★★ The Times
“A talent with serious conviction and jokes to spare.” ★★★★ Independent
Award-winning comedian Neil Delamere is one of the top acts working in the Irish comedy scene today, well known to audiences for his regular television appearances on RTE and the BBC as well as his hilarious sell-out stand up tours.
His deft turn of phrase, astonishing verbal dexterity and lightning fast wit have made him a formidable act on the stage and media. He continues to tour extensively at home and internationally, with appearances at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival (from which he presented the RTE television series covering the event) to name just a few. He is also a regular panellist on BBC 5 Live's Fighting Talk and recently appeared on BBC 4's The News Quiz.
“You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more gifted comic at the Fringe." The Scotsman
“No TV camera could accurately measure the lightning speed of Delamere’s wit.” The Irish Times
Phil Jerrod began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.
“Such a brilliant set – well observed, well written and funny obvs!” Josie Long
“Behind the beard is a comic whose instinctive mastery of his form immediately marks him out as one to watch.” The Guardian
Bella Hull is a London-based stand-up comedian and writer and one of the UK’s most exciting young comedians.
A former member of the Cambridge Footlights, Bella has performed to sell-out crowds in London and Edinburgh, and recently appeared at the Utrecht International Comedy Festival. Her writing has also recently been featured on BBC Radio 4’s Newsjack and Flux Magazine.
Already finding success on the competition circuit, in 2019 Bella won the Yellow Comedy Young Comedian of the Year competition and she placed third in the 2020 2NorthDown New Act Competition.

"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
