With star ratings that could rival the Burj Al Arab, Stewart Mitchell never fails to impress both critics and public with his unique, edgy brand of comedy. Often described as a genius, he’s definitely someone the world could do with right now.
Also in July, US comedy star, Cory Michaelis will be treating us to some extreme fun from the other side of the planet. This month we are going ‘Vegas!’
Finally returning by popular demand Allyson June Smith is by far one of Canada’s most prominent voices in stand up. When Jason Manford knows he has a tough crowd ahead of him, he books Allyson to start the show; and ‘sort things out!’. Manford admits himself, ‘This isn’t Girl Power! It is Woman Power’ at it’s best’.
This line up is brought to you by Gail Clough; who is more ferocious with hecklers, than a hungry guard dog in a Knackers yard.

Allyson June Smith
Canadian émigré Allyson June Smith commands every stage she walks onto with her own dynamite brand of hilarious material, driven by the strong rhythms that are a hallmark of so
much North American stand-up.
Her bold, observational style saw her quickly achieve prominence in Canada, with credits
including her own hour long TV comedy special, radio shows and festival appearances; she
has also been nominated on numerous occasions for the Canadian Comedy Award for Best
Female Stand Up. Her talent has taken her all over the world, and has led to her residing in
the UK, where she rapidly rose through the ranks of the circuit to make a name for herself
wherever she goes.
“Yet another hilarious Canadian with great hair” – Stewart Francis
“Wasn’t afraid to be shocking and explicit… hilarious” – **** Three Weeks
Drawing inspiration from the funny side of everyday life, she knows exactly how to play her
audiences to ensure her performances are always personal and engaging.
“Ultra likeable and versatile” – Now Magazine, Toronto
“Absolutely nailed the support slot! She has set the bar high! Think I need a different less-good
support!” – Jason Manford
Allyson performs for audiences ranging from corporate parties to regional clubs. Whether
she’s on the bill as MC, support, or headliner, she skillfully delights them all with her sassy
blend of ballsy stand-up, and hilariously insightful commentary. She works for all the major
UK and international promoters, and is a regular support for Stewart Francis and Jason
Manford on their live tour dates.

Cory just recorded his first comedy special “Collage Graduate” – in Provo, Utah at Dry Bar Comedy and released his first album “The Collage Dropout” that reached #2 on both the Billboard and iTunes charts. He headlines numerous clubs in the US and Canada, is a regular at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas, and headlines other casinos, colleges, and weird bars all over the world. He has headlined the Idaho Laugh Fest in Boise.
