A new act based in Leeds, Jack Shanik arranges carefully phrased one-liners into playfully loose tales delivered with prowling northern rhythms. Peddling measured daftness and sophisticated filth, his weighted word play is at home with both club and festival-type audiences.
“Jack Shanik is a very funny new act who not only has brilliantly crafted jokes but also a well developed comedy persona” – Tony Cowards
“Great gags and a lovely delivery” – Tiernan Douieb

Headline Act – Nick Page
Nick Page got into comedy for a bet, he’s still not sure if he’s won. He turned professional 4 months after his first open mic appearance, helped by working with Steve Coogan’s ‘Baby Cow’ production company and an approach from the BBC who needed someone with a knowledge of property and a bit of life for a new series. That offer turned into 3 series (so far) of ‘Escape to the Country’, which attracts daytime audience share of over 30% and has moved to prime time as well.
Despite gaps in his gigging schedule caused by filming, Nick is performing all over the country, and is at home compering a rowdy Friday night comedy club as he is doing a one man show at a corporate event.
His material is a surprising mixture of cynical observation and storytelling, drawing on his useless degree (International Politics and Far Eastern History) and inability to do a proper job (he was an estate agent but is mostly cured). He is quite tall, some would say very tall, but that may be hyperbole. His brother holds the record for throwing a Wellington boot (292 feet).
