One of the most inventive stand-ups on the Fringe..... knowingly cynical and hilarious ... delightfully deadpan Scot " Chortle

As seen on Comedy Central’s “The Alternative Comedy Experience” and heard on BBC Radio Four’s “Andrew O’Neil: Pharmacist Baffler”, Stephen Carlin has gained critical acclaim and a growing fan base with his original, insightful material and his accomplished delivery. Stephen is increasingly expanding his following on the international comedy scene performing this year across Asia, Europe and North America.

Chosen as one of Stewart Lee’s “Ten Best Stand Up Comedians Ever” Carlin has supported Stewart Lee, Stephen Merchant & Tom Stade on their national tours.

As always, Carlin’s art lies in his ability to quarry wildly original material from the most conventional of starting points. By taking run-of-the-mill observations and then applying his relentless but warped logic, he constructs towers of comic artistry. This married to his exceptional use of language and his brilliantly opinionated broadsides make for memorable routines. All skilfully delivered in his deadpan Scottish brogue.

Andy Valvur is a stand-up comedian, writer, actor and voice-over artist who divides his time between the US and Europe.
He was born in New York City, grew up in Japan, went to boarding school in Switzerland and university in California.

He started his stand-up career in San Francisco in clubs like the Holy City Zoo, The Punchline, Cobb’s and The Other Cafe. From there he moved to Los Angeles where he worked at the Comedy Store and on to New York where he was a regular at the IMPROV and Catch A Rising Star.
His comedy writing has been seen in the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Atlanta Constitution and the Philadelphia Daily News. He was a writer for the Emmy nominated PBS Television show The Durst Amendment starring political comic Will Durst and also wrote the House of Blues Radio Hour for Dan Aykroyd aka Elwood Blues for a number of years.

Finally, he finds it very odd to refer to himself in the third person.

Mystery rising star spot TBA!
And resident MC Carly Baker (USA) will be there to hold your hand through it all!
