A unique mixture of one-liners and Scandinavian-tinged stories has earned Olaf the purely fictitious title of 'Sweden's eighth funniest comedian'.
His recent exploits include coming second in the 2014 Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, beating the Comedy Store's infamous Gong Show (twice just to show off!) being crowned the 2013 Golden Jester and also being named Last Minute Comedy Club's New Act of 2013.
Ed Gamble is a stand-up comedian, writer and actor. He most recently starred in BBC America’s Almost Royal, a “cult US hit” (The Independent), which is soon returning to the screens for a second season. Ed has appeared on some of the UK’s most popular TV Shows: Mock the Week (BBC Two), Man Down (Channel 4), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two) and Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Two), as well as presenting radio shows for BBC Radio One and BBC Radio Four. He won the prestigious Chortle award for Best Compere in 2014.
Prior to this, Ed was co-writer and host of the iTunes-topping Peacock and Gamble Podcast as part of his double-act with comedian Ray Peacock. Peacock and Gamble also performed a sell-out UK tour in 2012, which was described as “a triumph of live comedy” (Fringe Guru) and “incessantly hilarious” (The Guardian).
Don’t miss the chance to see Ed try out new material for his next Edinburgh Fringe show.
"An ability to open his mouth and spontaneously say something hysterically funny" The Guardian

Lancashire comedian, Katie Mulgrew really likes making people laugh. It’s kinda her thing. She gigs all over the country in comedy clubs doing just that, to mostly success.
She’s done lots of lovely things whilst being a comedian like being tour support for The Boy With Tape On His Face and Vikki Stone. She has written for The News Quiz and you can hear her dulcet Northern tones featured on the BBC Radio 2 documentary series, The history of British comedy. She got to be very silly indeed on a couple of episodes of the CBBC show, The Dog Ate My Homework. She recently co-hosted a Tv pilot on ITV2 called Lovefix.
She won the inaugural 2015 Liverpool Hope playwriting prize and is currently working with the Liverpool Royal Court Theatre and Unity theatre in bringing her play to the stage.
Katie sometimes hosts her own podcast called ‘The FunnyGirl Podcast’ in where she enthusiastically discusses Musicals with guest stand up comedians. She is one third of the ‘Animates’ podcast with fellow stand ups Tony Jameson and Jim Smallman about their favourite childhood cartoons.
Katie has performed two solo stand up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is currently working on her third show when she’s not consumed with trying to keep the new human she has made alive.
