Watermans : Tip top comedy from comedians on their way to the bright lights of the Edinburgh Festival

Tiff Stevenson: Bombshell

"a hugely accomplished and enjoyably provocative comedian'

The Times

*** "This is a heartfelt, hilarious, provocative, important hour of stand-up from one of the best in the business."

The Sunday Herald

*** "It's punchy and political but in the best, most human sort of way. It's charming but hard-hitting and it's radical, but not self-consciously so." The Mirror

Tiff Stevenson is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer with numerous TV shows to her credit including Mock the Week (BBC2) and Russell Howard's Good News (BBC2). Her thought provoking and engaging style have seen her consistently play to packed audiences. Tiff's latest solo show 'Mad Man' was one of the best reviewed shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2015 receiving ten 4* and 5* reviews. In 2015 The Times picked Tiff as one of their top 10 comics to watch at the Fringe. Tiff's weekly live show Old Rope has enjoyed a succession of sell-out runs at the Edinburgh festival.

Eshaan Akbar

"So slick, I could have been watching a Live at the Apollo set"

Bruce Dessau

"A story that's likely to go far"

Steve Bennett, Chortle

Eshaan's professional career has taken him from private banking through to corporate communications via a career in local government public policy, so a move into comedy was the natural next step. Winner of the Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year 2016, he's been in the finals of many other prestigious competitions, including So You Think You're Funny and Laughing Horse.

MC Geoff Whiting

"Geoff Whiting takes the stage with consummate ease and works the audience like a miner at the coal face, digging out nuggets of information to fuel his comedy."

Independent on Sunday

A familiar face at Watermans Geoff is one of only a handful of comics worldwide to have performed stand-up comedy in a pod on the London Eye (for 'The One Show' BBC1) and was the first English Speaking comic to ever perform at Club 99 in Bucharest, Romania in 2010.

Geoff is now the resident MC for Britain's Got Talent annual contestant showcase gigs at the Hen and Chickens in Islington. Comedic charm guaranteed.

Eel Pie Club : BOOTLEG BLONDIE

BOOTLEG BLONDIE is the official Debbie Harry & Blondie tribute band and the only Blondie tribute to play the legendary CBGB's in New York City before it's demise in 2006. CBGB's was the Holy Grail of American Punk and New Wave, where the real Blondie first kicked off their career.

Bootleg Blondie has played the Isle Of Wight Festival, the 100 Club and the Hammersmith Palais in London, The Electric Ballroom, Eric's in Liverpool, and have opened up for amongst others The Undertones, Slade, Bad Manners, The Beat, Heaven 17, Toyah, Hazel O'Connor, Tony Hadley and can be seen at all the major venues and festivals around the UK and Europe.

Debbie Harris and the boys have met the REAL Blondie and are officially endorsed by the band. Debbie Harry got in touch in 2006 when she heard they were playing CBGB's in New York City to wish them good luck with their show and when Clem Burke, Blondie's charismatic drummer, found out that Bootleg Blondie were making a replica of his Premier drum kit, he arranged for them to meet him to sign their bass drum skin. Debbie Harris, lead vocalist of Bootleg Blondie, has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell and like her heroine is typically outrageous on stage. She has been known to wear dustbin liners, thigh length boots and t.shirts with more holes than t.shirt! Debbie's pride & joy is her guitar which she plays at every show and is signed by all the Blondie band members.

Debbie Harris is the niece of the celebrated singer and actress Shani Wallis who played Nancy in Lionel Bart's musical film 'Oliver'!

Eel Pie Club : GENO WASHINGTON

Geno Washington is still the ultimate 60s soul man enjoying cult status in soul, blues and RNB scenes, mainly due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer.

A contemporary of Georgie Fame, The Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix (all of whom were his support acts back in the day), Geno is as electrifying today as ever, a force of nature and a genuine joy to behold.

In 1980 'Oh Geno!' was a massive UK number #1 hit for Dexys Midnight Runners. Vocalist Kevin Roland based the song on his memories of Geno's gigs, when club land used to echo to the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!

Geno Washington & The Yo Yo's feature members of the super tight Ram Jam Band, playing a blistering set of pared down street soul, RNB and house rockin' blues.

Always ready to rock the house, the king of the swingers Geno Washington is the incarnation of all things 60s. Hipsters and flipsters, movers and shakers alike, all will have a great time when the good time guru gets his army of fans on the good foot! The old Geno magic still drags them in and sends them home high.
