Stephen Bailey - Can’t Think Straight

Meet your new potty-mouthed best friend, who supported Katherine Ryan and Jenny Éclair on their recent sell-out UK tours.

Stephen Bailey’s friendly, open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most enjoyable acts on the UK comedy circuit today. He is 'annoyingly sharp' (The New Current) and in 2015, his show was nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award for Best Show.

He is a regular on ITV's Weekend with Aled Jones and Channel 5's Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side and has appeared on ITV2's Safeword and CelebAbility, ITVBe's Kate's Wardrobe Secrets, W's Celebrity Advice Bureau and Channel 5’s It's Not Me, It's You.

He also guest-hosted Sunday Takeover on Virgin Radio, featured on The Art's Show with Jonathan Ross on BBC Radio 2 and was named one of Attitude Magazine's Top 100 Bachelors of the Year.

As well as being a working-class, ginger, gay, northern comic, he is also a black belt in Tae Kwon-Do, has a degree in Languages AND loves a conspiracy theory.

WHY? 'Bailey is an absolute crowdpleaser, getting the room howling with laughter' Chortle

James Mullinger Live - One Night Only

The Maidenhead-born comedian has taken Canada by storm since moving there in 2014.

He has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award and a Just For Laughs Award for Best Comedy Show. His stand up special Anything Is Possible was performed to over 5000 people, released internationally on Amazon Prime and was a bestseller on Blu Ray in North America.

James twice beat Jerry Seinfeld's sales record with his colossal arena shows. In 2015, James Buckley (The Inbetweeners) played James in a big screen movie about his early years in comedy (starring actors from Twilight, Downton Abbey and Notting Hill and comedians such as Jimmy Carr and Gilbert Gottfried). James works closely with many charities and in the past few years has raised over half a million dollars for children in need and women affected by violence.

He has sold out Norden Farm four times and loves it here so much that has picked this venue for his only UK tour date of 2018!

WHY? ‘Something of a sensation. The anecdotes come thick, fast and raucously funny’ Evening Standard

‘The moment this veteran British comic bounds on to the stage, you are in for an amazing hour of solo comedy’ Montreal Times

‘A great stand up’ Jimmy Carr

‘Fantastic, very talented and very funny. The next big thing’ Michael McIntyre

Supported by Ethan Ash and Andrew Doyle.
