About the comedians:

Dan Atkinson, supporting act

Dan Atkinson is a stand-up comedian, writer and producer. In recent years his work behind the camera has become more prominent, having produced The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), Unspun with Matt Forde (Dave), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three/BBC Two), and Live at the Electric (BBC Three) which he also script-edited. Dan has also written for Russell Howard’s television shows.

Combining political opinion with comedy can be a difficult trick to pull off without a barrage of heckling coming your way, but Dan does it brilliantly – his passionate delivery of great, witty writing is not to be missed.

“A kind of affable Neanderthal man who has just read the GQ style pages” – CHORTLE


Dan Antopolski, headline act

After adventures elsewhere, I am doing standup again, for love and of course, for money. I am often good at it due to material, performance, face and finally limbs which express sorrow while I smile. These are both real and the effect is really something. As always I am pitting fear against inertia by believing I will do an Edinburgh show in 2023 and so far this is creating NEW STUFF in the familiar way. I like the new stuff, it is different to the old stuff except if you’re not me in which case I guess it is the same. Such is art.’

“Spectacular displays of verbal pyrotechnics … A confident, splendidly silly and sometimes dazzling show.”
 – Stephanie Merritt, THE OBSERVER


Ross Smith, compere

Ross is your Compere for the evening.  He’s a regular at London’s biggest comedy clubs.  In 2018, he made headlines around the world when he agreed to go on holiday with complete strangers, taking the place of another man called Ross Smith. His viral adventure and the aftermath is the subject of his debut Edinburgh show, I Am Ross Smith.
