Presented by The Stables in The Spiegeltent
A crackingly inTents (!) late night comedy line-up not for the fainthearted – we promise it red hot and blue!
Pete Firman doesn’t miss a trick – recognized as the UK’s leading comedian/magician he brings his own brand of twisted, anarchic, very clever magic to the Spiegeltent. With a stack of appearances on TV, including with Derren Brown on in his ‘3D Magic Spectacular’ Pete has to be seen to be believed – leave your scepticism at the door.
“The audience is caught between guffawing laughter and amazed gasps” The Guardian
“He is the funniest and by far most accomplished performer on the new magic scene – funnier than most comedians” Time Out
Alexis Dubus’ character Marcel Lucont is France’s premier misanthrope and lover. Supremely arrogant and boasting a typically Gallic flair for elegant, flowery insults and an instinctive feel for the seamier side of life, Lucont is a hilarious take on the British tradition of anti-French gags...
“With his laconic, lacerated barbs, the French flaneur translates even the average British weather gag into a sophisticated, sardonic assertion of his immodest and defensible superiority.“ The List
"Impeccable timing, flawless runs with the odd audience heckle, poetry readings and chanson make Marcel Lucont a Comedy Festival pearl." NZ Herald
Beneath the sugar, spice and all things nice exterior, ukulele-wielding comedian actress and singer Vikki Stone’s sharply witty parodies and musical stylings have made her a rapidly rising star of the comedy circuit. Appearing regularly on TV, and she has also featured in numerous musicals and theatre productions including The Ladies That Lunch (Jermyn Street), Oklahoma! (Peacock Theatre), and Times Up! (Shaftesbury Theatre).
In the comedy jungle Zoe Lyons is definitely Queen. This brilliantly acerbic, personality-packed fire brand of a stand-up is one of the hottest comedy talents on the international circuit. With rapid one-liners and razor sharp observations, she is consistently funny and beautifully sarcastic.
“Her force of personality is enough to overpower anyone in the audience still labouring under the delusion that women aren't funny.” The Guardian
