Katie O’Brien

Katie Obrien resizeKatie O’Brien is an actor, writer, artist and comedian based in London. Originally trained in fine art, Katie’s anarchic comedy characters have been making a splash on the comedy circuit for the past few years. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, is a regular host of the Lost Cabaret evening in London and hosts her own monthly evening in London with acts such as Nick Helm, Tony Law and John Kearns. Katie’s new show ‘Billie was Tap Dancing with the Seagulls’ will be at Edinburgh Fringe this August.

★★★★★ Everything Theatre – ‘This show is beyond twisted and side-splittingly funny…a tantamount to a work of genius.’

London is Funny – the girl’s got balls…skill and charm to nab a podium position…One to watch!

Tom Allen
Tom Allen resizedAt the age of 22 Allen won the UK’s most prestigious comedy newcomer award So You Think You’re Funny and in the same year he won the BBC New Comedy Awards. He’s performed at Just For Laughs in Montreal, London’s Soho Theatre and New York’s UCB Theatre and has even had his own show at the Edinburgh Fringe for the past three years – ‘Tom Allen and Other Short Stories’; ‘A Voyage Round My Mother’ and ‘Women!’  

You can also usually catch Tom on TV shows such as Loose Ends, The Richard Bacon Show, Big Brother’s Big Mouth, Big Brother’s Little Brother and various shows on E4…..and now Bristol Pride!

Short & Girlie Show
SAGS 04 BW micThe UK’s longest running all-female comedy improv troupe. They perform silly sketches and songs using audience suggestions. The girlies hail from Brighton, Bristol, London and Bromley and host monthly comedy night Funny Girls Brighton. They are at L Fest later in July and in September embark on their 10-year anniversary “Spreading the Love Tour”, thirteen nights including a date with Bristol. If you’re feeling suggestive then this act is for you.

Boogaloo Stu
Often describing himself as a “showbiz multi-tasker”, Stu carved out an early career as a knitwear designer, with celebrity clients including Björk, Kylie Minogue, and Mariah Carey, before turning his attention to performing on the alternative London club scene at clubs such as Popstarz, Shinky Shonky, Duckie and Ghetto. 

Renowned for his outlandish stage attire, Stu also starred in the Olivier Award-winning show “C’est Duckie” and a Latin-American dance show “School Of Dance” at London’s Barbican Centre. He also hosted Eurovision for BBCi!

Bristol Talent
Pride also threw gauntlet out to new talent in Bristol and held open auditions to perform and selected Sammy: a singing bisexual Drag King and a wonderful performance piece called The Rose in the Hose.

AFTERPARTY
The performances will be followed by an afterparty in the bar hosted by Members and Indigo with DJs and friendly faces – come meet the team behind these LGBT networking groups.
