 Headlining the night is Sean Meo;

Former Time Out Comedian of the Year (1998), Sean is widely acknowledged as one of the finest performers and writers on the UK comedy circuit. A former professional snooker player, he turned to a career in comedy in 1989. He is now one of the most established names on the comedy circuit, and regularly headlines at Jongleurs and The Comedy Store where he is a member of The Cutting Edge topical comedy team.

He has worked extensively in the US, including San Francisco, New York and the Riviera in Las Vegas.

"Truly hilarious" The Scotsman

 Supporting Sean is John Mann;

Local man John provides sharp observation and wry wit mingled effortlessly with a gentle and confident rapport, which ensure this comic is unfailingly funny.  Whether he is discussing the senile antics of senior citizens or giving handy hints to aid successful shoplifting, John's gentle and honest delivery makes him one of the most enjoyable comedians on the circuit today.

 John is as at home with an audience of students as he is with a corporate dinner and frequently appears in most of the UK's leading comedy clubs, most notably Jongleurs for whom he is a regular and longstanding headliner. He has been seen on Live at Jongleurs and heard on Comedy Network.
