An experienced and versatile comedian, Markus Birdman is one of stand-up’s most well travelled comedians, much in demand in the UK and all over the world.
After attending several Art Schools, and even managing to graduate from one, Markus be-came a Graffiti Artist, Muralist, Performance Poet and Glastonbury Festival Poetry Slam Champion. He can’t remember which year, he was fairly out of it. This path would eventually lead him to becoming an award winning Stand-Up Comedian, and one of the very first Brit-ish Comics to have his own Netflix Special- Live in Amsterdam.
He has written and performed thirteen Edinburgh Festival Solo shows, and toured Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Pakistan, Iraq, Scandinavia and throughout Europe, The Middle East and Far East. He has also appeared on numerous TV and radio shows both in the UK and abroad, most recently reaching the live finals of Britain’s Got Talent.
With Burt Williamson
Burt is a stand-up comedian, improviser and comedy producer based in Bristol. He’s had two critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, is the brains behind Bristol Comedy Festival and an all round funny guy. At once silly and serious, smart and stupid Burt packs dense punchlines with know-it-all smarm and goofy charm to hilarious effect. At the forefront of a new and exciting generation of comics emerging from Bristol, Burt leads the charge on a new wave of talent in British comedy.
Final comedian completing the line up will be confirmed closer to the time
