Line-up (subject to change)

MC – Tom Glover

Loveable West Country favourite Tom Glover is a highly sought-after act and MC, capable of bringing laughter to any room. Tom combines tales of fatherhood and country living with hilarious observational routines on daily life.

In recent times Tom also finished runner up in the prestigious Lastminute Comedy Club Comedian of the Year and reached the finals of the Inaugural Petfringe Comedian of the Year.

His infectious personality and playful approach make him an instant hit with audiences, however Tom is perhaps best known for his excellent crowd work and quick wit that have earned him a number of regular compere roles at major venues across the South West. He’s had two successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with split shows and his debut full length solo show was nominated for Best New Show at the 2019 Leicester Comedy Festival Awards.

Opening Act – Jenny Hart
Jenny Hart is a musical comedy aid with a large side of dark humour and bags of energy, moving up through the ranks and bashing down comedy doors and changing attitudes. She loves what she does and she loves the reactions she gets and she’d love to push those boundaries further… Exeter maybe?

She performed as JennyBSide for most of the journey but after recently deciding to transition fully she performs as herself.. her true self… Jenny Hart.

Middle Act – Mark Flynn
Mark Flynn started stand-up at 50yrs old in March 2020, since then he’s gone on to beat the gongs at Top Secret, Comedy Store, Vauxhall and Up The Creek comedy clubs.

He’s also been a finalist in both the New Act of the Year (NATYS) 2022 and Old Act Of The Year 2022, as he is both new and a little bit old.

Mark is a man of few words, most of them sarcastic. Don’t ask him how he is, he will tell you. He describes his personality as “divorced” and is only doing stand up comedy to replace the attention he didn’t get as a child or as an adult. He doesn’t smile.

Headline Act – Alistair Barrie
Alistair Barrie is one of the top headliners on the international comedy circuit. A regular at London’s world-famous Comedy Store, he has performed in over 40 countries including acclaimed performances in Australia, Cape Town, Mumbai, New Zealand and the legendary Comedy Cellar in New York.

He has made countless appearances at UK music festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude, Bestival and Green Man and taken several solo shows to The Edinburgh Festival. His 2013 and 2015 shows were nominated for ‘Best Show at The Fringe’ with the latter transferring to London for a run at The Soho Theatre, and he was runner-up in the 2015 English Comedian of the Year.

After a limited run sold out in 2021, Alistair returned to Edinburgh in 2022 with the critically acclaimed ‘Alistaircratic,’ with The Herald describing him as ‘one of the UK’s sharpest comedians’.

A seasoned performer at corporate events, Alistair is the only comedian to have performed at both the Labour and Conservative Party conferences. He has also entertained international troops as far away as Afghanistan, Cyprus and the UAE.
