STEPHEN Bailey, who is a comedian, presenter, television personality and writer, and whose friendly and open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming acts in comedy at the moment, will be returning to the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club at the Atkinson.
LOL Comedy have been booking him for years and he will be in the town on Saturday, February 1 at 8pm.
He is the host of Celebs on the Farm (Channel 5) & Celebs On The Ranch (5Star) and was the resident Agony Uncle on Zoe Ball on Saturday/Sunday (ITV) and a series regular on Big Brother’s Bit on the Side (Channel 5) until the end of their runs.
Bailey has also been seen on Coronation Street (ITV), The Apprentice: You're Fired (BBC Two), Roast Battle, Takeshi’s Castle & Comedy Central at the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), The Stand Up Sketch Show, Safeword, and Celeb Ability & The Great Xmas Rant (ITV2).
He has also filmed two shows for Comedy Central and E4, which will air toward the end of the year through early 2020.
Stephen has previously supported Katherine Ryan and Jenny Éclair on their sold-out UK tours.
He also guest hosted Sunday Takeover (Virgin Radio), The Jason Manford Show (Absolute Radio), Drivetime with Eamonn Holmes (TalkRadio), The Breakfast Show (Gaydio) and The Sunday Sessions with Laura Whitmore (BBC 5Live).
He has featured on The Art's Show with Jonathan Ross on BBC Radio 2, Russell Kane's BBC podcast Evil Genius.
Joe Zalias will also be performing. He has been learning the stand up comedy craft for more than ten years and his hard work has certainly paid off as his memorable stage performances have seen him entertaining audiences nationally and internationally.
A devoted father, comedian, author and actor are only an insight into Joe's extensive talents.
His life has been somewhat exciting as he has ventured down various paths, including cage fighting, assisting a crime organisation and working as a firefighter.
Joe's life experiences have enabled him to put pen to paper and write two successful crime novels.
Having such a varied life, Joe has projected his experiences through dark and cutting humour, which have led him to supporting established comedy acts like Bill Bailey and Tom Stade on their tours.
Audiences can see George Rigden as well. Having excelled in a host of new act competitions in his first year, George Rigden made his Edinburgh debut in 2015 when he performed as part of the prestigious AAA Stand Up Late showcase at the Pleasance Courtyard for a full sell-out run.
He returned to Edinburgh in 2016, again as part of an established and respected showcase (The Lunchtime Special at The Tron) and splitting an hour with fellow up-and-comer Jake Lambert.
Damion Larkin will be the MC for the night.
