'This is one art house form-buster who can really give you a good time' (Times)

'As daring and innovative as it is ridiculously funny... He's a genius, plain and simple' (Time Out).
Former comedy reviewer Fern Brady first tried stand-up after the magazine she worked for suggested she write an article where she 'faked it' as a comedian. She enjoyed it so much that one year on, she embarked on it as a career.
She quit her day job working with male ex convicts after Stewart Lee plucked her from obscurity and put her on The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central). Since then she has performed stand up on a number of TV shows including 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular (BBC3), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and The One Show (BBC1).
Based in London, she has had two sold out critically acclaimed runs at the Fringe with her solo shows “People Are Idiots” (2015) and “Male Comedienne” (2016).
'A great comic sensibility, with moments of sparkling verve' (The Guardian)
'Crackles with fire, has beautiful timing, perfectly pitched delivery and great gags to boot... has the air about her of a woman going places' (The Scotsman).
He has been nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award (2015) Chortle Best Circuit Comedian and Chortle Best Newcomer and was a staff-writer on Russell Howard’s Good News. He has appeared on ITV's Tonight at the London Palladium, Live From The BBC, The Chris Ramsey Show, Elevenish, Count Arthur Strong, Australia’s ‘Comedy Up Late’.

Since stopping his double act, Colin and Fergus, and concentrating on stand up full time, Fergus Craig has gone from strength to strength winning stand up competitions including Hackney new act of the Year and appearing regularly in the hit channel 4 show Star Stories. A likeable oddball, behind the whimsical exterior lurks a sharpened comedy mind who is equally engaging as he is hilarious.
