Michael Fabbri quickly stamped his mark on the UK circuit appearing in the 2003 final of Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny? and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the most promising up and coming comedians on the circuit. A reputation that he is living up to, regularly performing for the best clubs in the country.
With a dark and honest approach to some of life’s more touchy subjects Fabbri manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh, controversial topics to light-hearted silliness to make for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act.

Ryan McDonnell Ryan's comedy career began in 2007 in London. After just a year of service he was awarded a place in the Magners Comedy Awards final of 2008, before going on to finish as runner-up in the prestigious Amused Moose new act competition in Edinburgh the following year. 2010 saw him turn professional as well as make his debut at the Edinburgh Festival's esteemed Pleasance Courtyard, as part of Bound & Gagged's 'AAA' show, which was a complete sell-out for the entire run.
