Good Ship Comedy presents Darren Walsh (UK Pun Champion!)
- No reviews.
- The Colonel Fawcett
Winner of the first UK Pun Championships and featured in Timeout’s “One to Watch” section, Darren Walsh’s silly happy-go-lucky style has been compared to Harry Hill, with an act that combines surreal nonsense and snippets of daft songs. You’re never more than six seconds away from a punchline with this rapid-fire king of daftness.
“He is a genial presence, not manic like Tim Vine, not wonderfully nerdy like Gary Delaney and not deadpan like Jimmy Carr, but very much his own mirthmaker.” The Scotsman
“An unstoppable tsunami of stupid puns.” Chortle
“A tall guy with a big talent for short jokes.” The Stage
If you want serious comedy David Tsonos is not your man. His comedy stems from being the youngest of five boys, babysitting ...his nephews and his cat. Starting off in Canada in 1999 and now making London UK his home he has performed in over 15 countries. He has appeared at numerous fringe festivals in the UK including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bath and Hastings. He will continue to make people laugh until Aliens with no sense of humour take over Earth.
Known for being both a quick-witted MC and a superb addition to any bill, Chris Betts has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence.
Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His shows are a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous.
Betts began his comedy career in Montreal, Canada and has since performed all across Europe and North America. He’s made appearances at comedy festivals all over the world including Edinburgh Festival Fringe, SXSW and the Zulu Comedy Festival.
"An enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics." The Independent

"Surreal, silly and beautifully performed, reminiscent of Cardinal Burns and in the case of Smith- Rowan Atkinson." Huffington Post
After only a couple of years on the circuit Madeline is already making very exciting comedy rumblings, being both a BBC New Comedy Award nominee in 2018 and developing work with Soho Theatre’s Edinburgh Lab. “Very smart and dry writer.” Funny Women
