The Fishpond presents: Stagefright Comedy - Craig Murray

Wed 15Aug
7:00 PM

Note: This event has finished


Craig Murray

Straight from the ‘Plusnet’ telly adverts, hailing from Dewsbury (a town otherwise famous for international terrorists, fake kidnaps and ‘Britain’s Best Market’), no nonsense Northerner Craig is currently one of the hottest rising talents on the comedy circuit. Described by Jo Brand as ‘bloody funny’ and as ‘a downright hilarious performer with reams of brilliant material’ Craig is an instant crowd pleaser with a charismatic, mock-confrontational style guaranteed to wreak havoc on the funny bone.

Elliot J Huntley

“The relaxed and unhurried stage persona of a born
story-teller who can keep an audience hanging on his
words even when he isn’t telling any jokes – a rare
talent” –

With a fabulous array of highly inventive tall-tales and gently twisted punchlines regarding relationships, fatherhood and hanging around low quality nightclubs in the grim hope of an extra curricular dalliance, Elliot’s comedic terrain is constantly entertaining albeit occasionally near to the figurative knuckle. However with his self-confessed oily superficial goodwill he manages to charm even the most stoic of audiences with his playful patter and slew of hilariously ribald songs performed on mandolin and laced with instantly quotable couplets.


Glenn Moore

‘Rib-tickling wordplay from a relaxed and engaging performer’ –

Chortle Student Comedian of the year runner up 2011.








Richard Jow

 ‘A worldly wise and undeniable logic runs through his set, provoking many an applause break’ –

Mr Ben’s Gong Show Winner.








Resident Compere – Anthony J Brown

‘Hilarious ad-libs and wicked one-liners from an infectiously funny performer’ – The List

Clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that’s slammed it’s claw in a coffin lid. And not the merest hint of profanity. The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface. Jongleurs/Metro “Stand & Deliver” Award winner and former BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2’s “The Arthur Smith Lectures”.
