Howard Marks

Howard Marks (above), aka Mr Nice, was once described by The Daily Mail as “the most sophisticated drugs baron of all time”. While dealing with the IRA and dodging MI6 (most of the time), the former prep school boy was once the most prominent importer of cannabis to the UK, had houses across the world, and a glamorous jet set lifestyle. Then he got caught.

It was his power to be mates with anyone that enabled him to be as successful as he was and, as anyone who’s read his best-selling memoir knows, hearing him wax lyrical about his life and adventures is eye-opening.  

£17.50, May 29 & Jun 12, 9pm

Nick Helm: One Man Mega-Myth

One of the loudest stand-ups out there, Helm, the self proclaimed “human car crash of light entertainment” is a one-man barrage of nut-kicking gags and hilarity.

Carl Donnelly: Different Gravy

When this young London stand-up started out, he looked a little like a Seventies Californian coke dealer – YouTube his performance on Russell Howard’s Good News.

He’s since worked the comedy scene across the land, popped up all over TV, got a regular nonsense-talking podcast with mate Chris Martin (not that one) and found himself a hipster haircut. Ace comedy and a total star in the making.

Andrew Maxwell: That’s The Spirit

One of our faves here at TNT Towers, we’re lamenting the fact that cheeky chappy Maxwell (above) and his sharply observed take on the world is only on for one night (we’re sure he has his reasons, so we’ll let him off). Makes this one of the festival’s highlights, though. Must get in there early to avoid missing out.

Abandoman: The Life and Rhymes of Abandoman

Hip-hop comedy improv – not a usual recipe for success, but Irishman Rob Broderick has made it exactly that.

He’s toured relentlessly – recently hitting the road with Ed Sheeran where he wowed across two nights at Brixton Academy – and played to no fewer than 10,000 St Paddy’s Day party-goers at Trafalgar Square. In short, the man has generally been rocking the house each and every night that he plays.

He also won the Best Newcomer gong at last year’s Adelaide Fringe. Not as if you needed any more convincing, but he also does requests! So go along and find out what all the fuss is about. 

£15.50, May 17 & Jun 7, 9pm
