Warm up at the Tabard Theatre

Two great comics showcasing their Edinburgh Fringe shows at the Tabard Theatre.


As a solo live performer Steve Hall has provided the support for Russell Howard on his twice extended sell-out national Adventures tour and, after taking his own new solo show Vice Captain Loser to the Edinburgh Festival in 2008, supported Russell again on Dingledodies, a second national sell-out tour.

A finalist in the BBC New Comedy Award and Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award, Steve Hall made his fringe debut in 2003 in the sell out Edinburgh show, Three Men and a Giant. Steve has since returned to The Edinburgh Festival, with four critically acclaimed sell-out shows, as part of the if.Comedy Award nominated sketch group We Are Klang.

The controversial sketch trio has gone on to win huge critical acclaim. With We Are Klang Steve has won a Spirit of the Fringe Award, and been nominated for Chortle's Best Sketch Show Award and Melbourne Festival's Barry Award as well as appearing in Saturday Night Live Again (ITV), Music Hall Meltdown (BBC Four) The Wall (BBC Three) and Edinburgh and Beyond (Paramount Comedy).

As part of We Are Klang Steve most recently wrote and starred in the groups eagerly anticipated sitcom series for BBC Three.

Steve recently supported Russell Howard on his autumn arena tour Big Rooms and Belly Laughs.


James Acaster began performing stand up comedy in January 2008, he has since developed into a hugely engaging and exciting comedian, performing all over the country and establishing himself as one of the most exciting new acts on the circuit.

From September 2010 James will be supporting Josie Long for the whole of her 2010 UK tour. He won Off The Kerb's Laughing Boy New Act in June 2010 and then came 3rd in the Latitude New Act Competition the following month where he performed to over 4,000 people. In August 2010 he performed as part of BBC's 'Stand Up in the Street' during the Edinburgh festival. He has appeared on Australian TV show 'Australia Versus' and was one of the Co Hosts of 'My First Gig' on Resonance FM.

His set often features story telling, audience interaction and routines about not being particularly cool. He is from the town of Kettering but is based in London. They are both cool in their own way.
