Winchester Comedy Festival presents A Comedy Gala featuring

Tom Allen
Tom Allen started as a stand up at the age of twenty-two and went on to win both So You Think You’re Funny in Edinburgh and the BBC New Comedy Awards in the same year.

Since then he has honed his unique style of sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling by performing to audiences all over the UK and around the world. He has appeared on shows such as Live at the Apollo and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

“Riotous stuff, perfectly delivered”
Scotsman ★ ★ ★ ★

“Wit as sharp as his fashion sense”
Ed Fest Mag ★ ★ ★ ★

Stephen Bailey
Relatable, Northern boy, Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television presenter and writer. Already familiar to audiences of Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side (C5), 2016 has seen Stephen as a panellist on Safeword (ITV2), It’s Not Me, It’s You (C5) and The Funny Thing About (C5) along with the upcoming Codswallop (ITV 2).

Away from the screen, Stephen supported Katherine Ryan on her UK tour, performs at all the top comedy clubs in the UK and his show was nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award (Best Show) at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

“A Guilty Pleasure”
Daily Record

“Bailey has a natural chemistry with his audience and this is where he truly comes into his own”
Broadway Baby​

Sean McLoughlin
Sean McLoughlin is now widely considered to be one of biggest talents currently working in UK stand-up.

Sean’s ascendancy has been cemented by recent appearances on Russell Howard’s Stand-Up Central and Comedy Central’s Live At The Comedy Store, as well as high-profile tour supports for Ricky GervaisDoc Brown and Katherine Ryan.

A regular at the UK’s finest comedy clubs, he has previously appeared at the Cat Laughs Comedy Festival in Kilkenny and the Vodafone Comedy Festival in Dublin, as well as shows in every Scandinavian country, Brussels, Croatia and The Netherlands.

“The best comedian you haven’t heard of yet”
Mark Watson

“A terrifically intense, eloquent hour of comedy”
The Independent

Doc Brown
