"Intensely funny" and "Very talented" - Timeout
"Intelligent humour and sharp, insightful stand up" - Evening Standard
"There are plenty of comedians willing to dumb themselves down in order to
win audience approval, but that's not a game Jessica Fostekew is prepared to
play...great fun, if not the sort of thing that's likely to win over fans of
Paddy McGuinness" - The Guardian
Laughing Coyote favourite Jess Fostekew returns to THE FIRESTATION
"surprised with throwaway lines of impressive verbal dexterity that was thoughtful, clever and very funny."
“a quirky observational set that earns him lots of applause…He looks the part, he’s got the talent, and it’s easy to imagine him on the telly..”
“quick as a whippet with razor-sharp intelligence, delivering punch lines with fantastic physicality.”

Rounding off the line-up is rising star George Rigden. Bristol-based musical comic George has been making an impact on the UK comedy scene since debuting in 2013. A sardonic wit and knowing act always willing to highlight his own shortcomings to hilarious effect.

"Managed to combine the bombast of Mitch Benn with the creepiness of Earl Okin" Julia Chamberlain, Chortle
"Certainly a name to watch out for in the future." Bristol Culture
