Elvis McGonagall

Stand-up poet, armchair revolutionary, comedian and broadcaster, Elvis McGonagall resides at The Graceland Caravan Park somewhere in the middle of nowhere where he scribbles verse whilst drinking Scotch, listening to Johnny Cash and throwing heavy objects at his portable telly.

Two series of his sitcom “Elvis McGonagall Takes A Look On The Bright Side” have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 where he appears regularly as well as popping up occasionally on the television.

Deftly witty, satirical but not afraid to be plain daft, Elvis has been spitting his scabrous diatribes against the powers that be since 2003. And look at the state of the world now. So that’s 14 years of futile ranting.

Elvis McGonagall has suffered for his poetry. Now it’s your turn.

“Elvis McGonagall does not wear specs or a monagall but he looks good and stands up well on stage.” - John Hegley


Mr & Mr Burn

Meet Mr & Mr Burn, an explosive, chaotic, offbeat Vegas double act with a touch of disaster about them.

This act is built around an oddly comic, musical world played and looped live on trombone, tuba, baritone uke and electronic drums. Into this mix add some contemporary clowning, puppetry and pyrotechnics to create an anarchic world of surprises where anything can and will go wrong


Ben Zuddish

English / Welshman Ben Zuddhist honed his skills on the streets of Japan before settling in Belgium and then France, and is now confused. He melanges slightly out of tune music, dubious comedy, rude magic and complete and utter nonsense in an unpredictable mish mash of hilarity. Expect a flying pig, incredible clairvoyance and other surprising wotnot.
