Andy Field

CHORTLE ONE TO WATCH 2017
BBC NEW COMEDY AWARD FINALIST 2017

Winner of the Chortle Student Comedy Award 2015, as well as finalist in the 2014 Leicester Square New Act of the Year, Andy has made an impact on the comedy scene with his unique style and fresh approach to traditional stand up.

A regular at festivals such as Latitude, Bestival, Leefest and Secret Garden Party, Andy is fast becoming a familiar face at top comedy clubs around the country. He has hosted his own webseries in the Tub, in which he interviewed up-and-coming bands in the bath (of course). He has a Masters in Creative Writing from Brunel.
Andy returned to Edinburgh in 2017 with a brand new hour of sketch meets stand up, The Andy Field Experience, which garnered numerous 4 and 5 star reviews.

***** Voice Mag – “Completely brilliant, classless humour.” 
**** Edinburgh Festivals – 
“For an hour of hilarious escapism, look no further.”
**** Fest Mag – 
“Stellar puns, great one liners.” 
**** The Skinny – 
“A great show for an escape to the surreal, and laughing without always knowing or caring quite why.” 
“He has a surreal outlook, a set packed full of proper punchlines and a nerdy glee in sharing it.” – Steve Bennett, Chortle

Middle

Liam Schewitz

He blew us away” South Wales Echo

“Sharp punchlines great writing” Jack in the Box
“Equally hilarious and irascible” Clwb Cardiff
An act laced with bitterness about family life and society in general, a completely skewed world view with inventive writing and punchlines. Stories vary from a Thai massage , his marital relationship degenerating into conversations about his dogs genitals, and the joy of parenthood
