Jack Skipper has gained a large following on social media with his online comedy content with over 13 million likes on TikTok alone and over 200,000 followers on Instagram, going from a carpet fitter with no qualifications to blowing up on social media and becoming a full-time comedian and finishing runner up in the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? New Comedian of the Year competition.
Carey Marx has been a circuit favourite for years, mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischievous and gleeful delivery. His wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places. This hilarious mix of edgy topics and playful gag smithery can be seen at all the top clubs across the country with Marx regularly playing Komedia and The Comedy Store and annually compering the largest festivals.
Carey has taken numerous critically acclaimed shows to Edinburgh Festival Fringe over the years. His 2013 show, Intensive Carey, was so successful that it was picked up by BBC Radio 4 in 2015 and developed into an R4 special.
MC James Cook is a professional comedian based in Birmingham, UK, with over 1,000 gigs worth of experience as an act and compere. He has performed two shows at the Edinburgh Fringe – Adventures on Air (the one about the radio) and Always Be Rolling (the one about board games). His act has been described as “truly original” (Danny Wallace (off of the telly)), whereas he’s been called “suave and chirpy” by that publishing powerhouse, the Bromsgrove Advertiser, and a “sarcastic raconteur” by the Leeds Metro.
