Welcome to Criminal, where a lineup of wonderful comedy talents solve a murder in front of your eyes.

Tonight the hideous crime that needs solving is the murder of Gareth Watkins. Strolling around the supermarket of deception, our detective must head straight to the aisle of resolution and cram the tins of truth into the trolley of justice.

Tonight's improvisers are Phil Whelans ("Genuinely and utterly original" - Three Weeks), Frankie Evans (***** - Oxford Mail), Ralph Jones ("The performance is faultless" - Chortle), and Richard Vranch ("Impressive display" - Chortle).

Produced by Ralph Jones and Joel Gatehouse, Criminal is a comedy night and podcast ('Criminal Casebook') recorded in front of a live audience.

Matt Price - Broken Hooters And Geezers With Shooters

Date: Tuesday 9th April, 2019
Venue: Ring O Bells
Doors: 7.00pm for 7.30pm show
Duration: 1hr
Price: £8

click to book online

Matt Price was asked to work on a writing project with a former criminal. From day one, he was out of his depth...

Matt ("Fearlessly funny" **** The Scotsman) has been to a high profile criminal's funeral and stood outside the church with a biker gang and a 'body guard' who had learning difficulties. He once played monopoly with a Russian drug dealer and was sent an ill fitting stab proof vest and a spoon through the post.

As Steve Bennett from Chortle said, Matt Price is "a genuine, ordinary guy spinning some yarns, extraordinary in their telling" **** On the surface at six foot three and twenty stone, Matt looks as though he may blend into the criminal underworld quite well, until he blows his cover by speaking.

This is a show about learning your limitations and embracing them. It's about facing fears. It's about realising that actually, not being a tough guy isn't such a bad thing after all. Sometimes it's sensible to run away. Some people travel to Nepal or India to try and find themselves. Matt spent hundreds of hours at a retired criminal's house, mixing with people that he never even knew existed.

He doesn't have that many answers as to why people do bad things. But he has a lot of stories and he's learned a lot too.

"I don't understand why he isn't better known" ***** One4Review

Matt Price has been a professional comedian for over ten years and has performed in 30 countries, including 4 tours of Australia. He is a versatile performer who tells a great yarn, usually from the wilder side of life, but one that will make you laugh. He is not a geezer and his hooter remains unbroken.

"Storytelling comedy, necessitates a level of honesty I like. And Price is one of the best at it around" - Scotland on Sunday

Garrett Millerick - Sunflower

Date: Friday 12th April, 2019
Venue: Ring O Bells
Doors: 8.45pm for 9.00pm show
Duration: 1hr
Price: £10

click to book online

This time last year, Garrett Millerick’s 'Sunflower' was intended to be a 100% pure comedy show with no agendas, no left, no right and no sad stories - a show named after his favourite Beach Boys album and written to contrast the horror of world events.

But a brutal rollercoaster of events derailed this plan and Garrett was faced with the choice of cancelling the show or finding the path to complete it in a few short weeks.

Sunflower emerged as a testament to the power of comedy to carry us through the whatever life throws at us and became one of the most talked about, critically acclaimed and powerful shows of Edinburgh 2018.

Phil Nichol - Too Much

Date: Wednesday 24th July, 2019
Venue: Ring O Bells
Doors: 8.45pm for 9.00pm show
Duration: 1hr
Price: £5 or pay what you feel*

click to book online

Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner Phil Nichol's brand new show follows an incredible two-year run with his last show 'Your Wrong' that played at the last two Edinburgh Festivals and toured across the UK, Europe, SE Asia, Canada and New Zealand this year..

'Too Much' follows the rollercoaster ride of Phil's hilarious relationship with the modern world. And what a confounding, hilarious and messed up world it is. It's too much.


The planet is messed up, society has devolved, mankind is hopeless, vegans are right, you aren't supposed to punch facists, the left are self-righteous morons, everyone is a selfish prick, Phil's a bleeding hypocrite. It's all too much. Too much.

Ask yourself this, what kind of person ends up-

- Naked on The Weakest Link?
- Taking two 75 year olds to Glastonbury?
- Arrested for quoting Derek and Clive on a Virgin Train?
- High on Ecstasy in the back of a police car in Lancaster?
- Surviving a Rocket attack in Kandahar, Afghanistan?
- With his nose broken by a Royal Marine in Thailand?
- Listening to his 90 year old mom tell him how madly in love with his father she is?
Phil Nichol. That's who.

'Too Much' takes an unflinching look at aging, recognition, mental health, values, norms, patience, love, everything and conkers. Expect riotously uncomfortable anecdotes and oversharing delivered in Nichol's unique live-wire style.

WINNER - Scotsman Fringe First Award 2011
WINNER - IF.COM Eddie Award 2006 (previously The Perrier, now known as the Edinburgh Comedy Award)
WINNER - Time Out Best Comedy Performer 1998
Chortle Best Headliner - Nominee - 2002, 2006 & 2010

Brexit: solved! Climate change: solved!

Nick Doody is one of the brightest talents on the comedy circuit, being a highly engaging live performer and a prolific comedy writer for TV and radio.

Sharp, topical and not afraid to say what he thinks, his brand of intelligent, honest and incisive comedy has won him fans all over the world.

Nick’s career got off to a pretty good start in the 90s by supporting the legendary Bill Hicks, at Bill's request. Since then he’s racked up a string of sell-out Edinburgh and other festival shows and continues to be much in demand in the UK and abroad.

"Simply the best unadulterated, gimmick-free hour of pure stand-up I've seen so far this Fringe" ***** Chortle
