Big Value Comedy Show - Early

Presented By: Just The Tonic in association with Darrell Martin

Event name 11 28 Aug 2022



Four of the best new acts on the circuit, selected by Just the Tonic.

The 26th year of the recognised launch pad for future stars.

Our previous discoveries, before the rest of the world found them, include: Jason Manford, Jon Richardson, Sarah Millican, Romesh Ranganathan, Jim Jeffries.... the list goes on.

2022's Big Value Early stars of the future are:

JON PEARSON: He began standup comedy in 2010, twelve years later and Jon has become a regular face on the circuit, performing at prestigious clubs up and down the country. In 2022 Jon won best Improc show at the Leicester comedy festival.

AARON SIMMONDS: A BBC New Comedy Award finalist in 2017. He also won Jewish Comedian Of The Year in the same year. Aaron performed his cristivall-acclaimed debut show, Disabled Coconut, at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.

NINA GILLIGAN: Sometimes outrageous, always hilarious, observational and storytelling comedy for all. A persona you will fall in love with. Award-winning comedian Nina Gilligan exploded on to the comedy scene in 2011 and is now a regular on the UK circuit.

JACK GLEADOW: Huge demand on the live comedy scene. In 2018 Jack won the Mercury Comedian of the Year award, Jack bowled over the judges with his quirky set; "a delightful blend of audience participation, wordplay and physical comedy".

Disappointing. Pretty average. Nina Gilligan was easily the funniest. Performers complaining about being tired after half a week of shows…..just about sums it up.
