Host Comedian – Will Marsh
BBC1 – Stand Up for Comic Relief (The Barbican, Plymouth 2011)
BBC1 – The One Show (Comic Relief 2011)
Will Marsh is from the midlands. He isn’t proud of it. His comedy is far from the middle and he sure is proud of that. He is likely to give you black comedy and mix it with observations you probably never had. You may even think about life a little differently once he has finished. One thing is guaranteed, once the laughing stops you will wonder just how messed up this world really is.
Opening Comedian – Steve Day
Abnormally Funny People (Sky), The Sound Barrier (BBC), Natural Born Talent (Ch4)
Steve Day is a truly unique comedian – warm, witty and engaging whilst dealing with the dilemmas of being a deaf man in a hearing world. His stories of multiple children, wearing a suit and the problems caused by not knowing how words are pronounced will have audiences in raptures, and his uplifting tales of overcoming the obstacles in his path will leave crowds feeling inspired.
