COMEDY AT THE CON PRESENTS APRIL COMEDY EXTRAVAGANZA WITH Mike Gunn, John Fothergill , FIona Ridgewell, MIchael Eldridge MC Neil Masters

MIKE GUNN - Early in his career Mike was supporting the likes of Jo Brand and Alan Davies and recently supported Lee Mack on his huge UK tour. He now headlines at all the top comedy venues in the UK and is rapidly reaching cult status on the circuit. He has performed internationally, taking his talent to Hong Kong, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia and to Australia at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where he completed a five-week sell-out season. He also had the dubious honour of being the first comic to ever play in Kuantan, East Malaysia and has entertained the troops in the Falkland Islands. Mike has also taken two solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival. His first performance saw him adopt the character of a funeral director in his show ‘Good Grief’ for which he received rave reviews. His follow up show at the festival was the provocative show: “Uncut”. A departure from straight stand-up, this took a comedic look at drug addiction and recovery. In 2012 Mike and his touring partner Sean Collins completed a 35 date sell out UK tour. “Mike Gunn will make you die laughing” The Guardian “One of the 10 leading stand-ups in Britain” The Independant

JOHN FOTHERGILL - John has slotted into the comedy circuit like a three pinned plug combining a unique style of embarrassing sexual revelations with a rural innocence. He has also toured the Nations universities, toured of Ireland and performed in Hong Kong and regularly at the Edinburgh Festival. In 1997 John performed a month long run at the Adelaide International Comedy Festival, and in 1999 he appeared on BBC 1’s The Stand Up Show, and became a regular member of the Comedy Store’s highly regarded Cutting Edge team.

FIONA RIDGEWELL - Fiona has a skewed view of life, she's watched one too many Disney films and its affected her grip on reality! Join her on her magic carpet, as she dives under the sea because you've got a friend in me! "Fiona has funny bones and an easy warmth on stage. She has actual gags, an increasingly rare commodity in today's wispy, live blogging forum of comedy. She knows about delivering funny stuff not commenting on it or talking about gigs she's had, but life experience made recognisably hilarious.

MICHAEL ELDGRIDGE - Describes himself thusly:" I'm approaching a year in comedy and have done over 100 gigs. I won the title of Huge Rat, run by Harry Deansway, over around 60 other comedians. I've done my first few pro gigs at Putney Comedy Club and Monkey Business Comedy Club in the last month or so. I'm booked to perform at The Comedy Store on the Best in Stand Up show on a Saturday in March 2019." Julia Chamberlain
