Lindsey Santoro: Pink Tinge (Work in progress)

Alright bab!? Debut stand-up hour from one of the most exciting voices to come out of Brum in recent years. Since appearing as part of ‘Best in Class’ in 2018, Lindsey has made numerous appearances across TV, radio and podcasts including Comedy Central Live and Sarah Millican’s ‘Elephant in the Room’ (Radio 4) and has recently supported Joe Lycett on tour including support at Wembley Arena. 2021 Finalist at the British Comedian of the Year.

‘One of the most naturally hysterical and gifted comedians in recent memory’

James Cook: Anonymously Viral

James has been posting on social media for 15 years hoping that something would go viral. Then it did. So what happens when a tweet blows up and the worst people in the world start replying?

A Birmingham-based comedian, James Cook won a one-off Jongleurs/Spike Milligan award for being the funniest person in the Midlands in 2003, and they still haven’t asked for it back. As well as stand-up, he has also been a presenter on three commercial radio stations and teaches courses in comedy.

‘A top class comic’

Genius PR & Events

Founded in 2013 by Trish Caller – Genius PR & Events started out as Taunton Comedy Festival with a huge marquee in the grounds of Taunton School.

Following the huge success of the first festival show, Taunton Comedy Festival became Taunton Comedy and started to book and promote shows at more and more venues across Taunton and then expanded further afield to other towns and villages in Somerset – Genius PR & Events was born!

Trish’s dream has always been to make Somerset the Edinburgh of the South – Not just once a year but top quality comedy shows across Somerset all year round.
