Joining Marcus for the evening is Nick Page, English Comedian of the Year 2018. His shows are full to bursting with stories from a life lived on the edge of (self inflicted) disaster. Also on our bill is Ashley Frieze, a guitar-toting funny man with a charming, daft, and warm brand of music-infused stand-up comedy.

Finally. our MC for the evening will be Brennan Reece,a multi-award winning working class wordsmith, as seen on TV’s Live at the Apollo, Celeb Coach Trip and Roast Battle.
