Albert’s Comedy Shed #4 w/ Jo Enright
“One of Britain’s best character actresses.” – The Independent (Grace Dent)
“Jo Enright is one of the most naturally gifted comic talents I’ve ever seen. I’d put her in the same league as Julie Walters.” – Peter Kay

“They’re stupid, daft, at times nonsensical. Funny yes but daft as brushes. Just how I love my comedy. Thank the stars they went into stand up and not health care.” – Johnny Vegas
Kieran Ahern and Tom Dowling, aka Good Kids, met in the playground at the age of 4. They’re daft, weird and lairy. They have been taking the Midlands and wider UK comedy scene by storm for the last few years and have been nominated for a bunch of awards. Kieran is the curvaceous one and Tom is the other one.
Daisy is one of the fastest rising stars in Scottish comedy today and is attracting plaudits and accolades at an alarming rate. Having won Best New Comedian at the Scottish Variety Awards 2015, she was then crowned Scottish Comedian of the year in the same year (making her the first-ever female winner.) She then followed this up with a sell-out show at the Adelaide Fringe and returned to the UK to scoop the Best Newcomer prize at the Chortle Awards 2016.
