Original and provocative, Baptiste is hailed as one of the most exciting acts to break in years. The London born stand up made comedy history in 2014 as the first Black British act to be nominated for a comedy award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for his debut stand up show Citizen Dane. Following this nomination, the show enjoyed incredible success at London’s Soho Theatre completing two sold out runs with additional dates added due to phenomenal demand. His second stand up show Reasonable Doubts was again met with huge critical acclaim and performed to sold out audiences at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe, with his first nationwide solo tour following in 2016. In 2018 Dane set out on a massive world tour, covering numerous territories, with his smash hit third stand up hour G.O.D. (Gold. Oil. Drugs).

He has also hosted Live At The Apollo (BBC Two), Live from the Comedy Store (Comedy Central) and created, wrote and starred in his own sitcom Sunny D (BBC Three/One), which was the first black sitcom commissioned by the BBC in 20 years and is now being reformatted for US markets.

Opening Act – Tom Davis

Before television, Davis worked as a scaffolder, bouncer, market stall trader and a stand-up comedian. When his friend was working as a runner on Bo’ Selecta, they gave some videos of their own comedy sketches to Leigh Francis, who then invited Davis to appear on the show. He appeared in various comedy roles on TV over the following years. In 2015 he co-created and starred in Murder in Successville. This semi-improvised show, in which a celebrity guest must help DI Sleet solve a fictional crime, became a cult hit. In 2016, Davis was named a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit and appeared in the films Free Fire and Prevenge.

Middle Acts – Matt Price & Craig Deeley

Matt Price is known for having some of the most extraordinary and outrageous stories drawn from the wilder side of life. Hailing from Cornwall; he brings true warmth and heart to the stage whilst finding some audacious laughs in the most unexpected places.

Matt’s charm and talent have made him a favourite on the UK and International circuit and whether he is compering or performing a set, he has the expertise to win over even the toughest of audiences.

Despite the occasional misadventure on his travels Matt continues to work internationally and has worked in Eastern and Central Europe, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, South East Asia, Turkey, Australia and Scandinavia.

He is a very skilled act, in demand at comedy clubs and his versatility has also made him be chosen as a tour support for acts such as Russell Kane, Stephen K Amos and Norman Lovett.

His critically acclaimed solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival have also see Matt weaving his own amazing true tales into astonishing and very funny hour long solo shows.

 

Craig Deeley is a Birmingham-based stand-up who has crafted his art form over the last ten years. Craig’s repertoire is one of anecdotal observational comedy, combining humble self-mockery and tapping into the ridiculousness of modern life and everyday occurrences that we all recognise.
