Number 28 is based on the Market Place at Belper.

After starting stand up in Edinburgh whilst studying at university, John Whale quickly became a regular on the circuit in Edinburgh and Glasgow, performing regularly at the famous Stand Comedy Club.

In his first year in comedy, he reached the semi-finals of So You Think You’re Funny? and has performed twice for BBC Comedy Presents, the second time being at the Edinburgh Festival.

Now based in Newcastle, John gigs regularly for comedy clubs across the country.

Patrick Draper was English Comedian of the Year Finalist 2015 and his head is full of ridiculous stories. Watch him sift through them like a fox rifling through a bin: misery; planetary alignment; things. Expect gloriously dry stand up from a rising star on the circuit.
