MIKE NEWALL: RE:NEWALL
"I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of this title before. Having to move back home at 36 and "start again", maybe this is the right time."
Mike Newall is a rising star of the circuit, having supported the likes of Alun Cochrane on his UK tour. A gentle, amiable power-house of a comic, Mike’s timing is the envy of performers with ten times the experience and is living proof that you can’t learn to be funny, some people just are. Since making his debut in 2003, he has toured the country honing his skills and is now a force to be reckoned with. A talent who audiences, colleagues and industry-types alike are really sitting up and taking notice of, Mike Newall is the future of the Manchester scene, as cheering crowds from Penzance to Inverness will happily testify.

JOHN SCOTT: DELUSIONS
Misdiagnosed with schizophrenia aged 25, then re diagnosed as Bipolar 5 years later because he'd become a comedian. This is the story of that journey. A candid and frequently hilarious look at the more serious side of mental health.
John Scott is a comedian with 20 years experience in the game.
Warm up for Stewart Lee, Frankie Boyle, Tom Stade and many more.
