5 OCT ’16 – Andy Storey – The Water Poet
Special Guest Headliner: Andy Storey
Born and Braised in the North of England BBC Radio New Comedy Award finalist 2015 Andy Storey is one of the most exciting, original and idiosyncratic rising stars of the post alternative comedy scene. His deliciously dry sense of humour, and effortless performance style mark him out as a refreshing, albeit positively cynical new voice in comedy.

“Solid grip on Stand-up.” **** TV Bomb /4 stars.
“Slick relaxed delivery…Wry punchlines efficiently packed in keeping the audiencelaughing.” Steve Bennett – Chortle.
“A charmingly haphazard waltz through one misanthrope’s awkward past…Andy Storeylooks like a beatnik Genie in a bowling shirt, and he tells a truly funnystorey.”**** Ed FestMag /4 stars.
