ERIC LAMPAERT (lamb-pear) - 25th April
ERIC LAMPAERT will look familiar to most.
A regular contributor to comedy shows such as 'CARDINAL BURNS' CH4 and 'THE MIDNIGHT BEAST' CH4 as well as film and panel show appearances.
An hilarious comedian with observations on life split between a French heritage and a dual French and British education.
Eric has had a tumultuous time with a distinctive appearance that not only gets him recognised after some TV exposure (including a discussion with Bruce Willis in his pyjamas), but also saw his face appropriated for advertising in Latin America without permission.
“Rips through the room like a mini-hurricane” ****Chortle
“Delightfully Weird!” ****TimeOut
“He makes it look easy, but this is a man with very funny bones. Definitely one to catch” ****Daily Express
Also returning to the Coyote is Australian comedian and cartoonist BEC HILL.
Bec comes armed with some lovely stories – punctuated with her beloved puns – as well as some of the most inventive live animation of her own flip chart creations. She possesses a refreshing blend of charm, whimsy and infectious enthusiasm, which has gained a cult-following in Australia and the UK. But what makes her unique is her skilful ability to bring her “arts and craft” imagination to life on stage.
”Side-splittingly funny stand-up” *****ThreeWeeks
“A must-see” *****EdinburghGuide.com
”Bec Hill is an act to watch out for” ****Chortle
Joining Bec on the bill is fellow Aussie – JOHN ROBERTSON.
Famous for creating a viral YouTube game entitled ‘The Dark Room’, John has relocated to the UK and brings with him a guitar, a pocketful of jokes and stories of frustrated German gamers, disappointed TV commissioners and much more.
Showman, dandy, YouTube manipulator, voice-actor and grinning anarchist. Creator of puzzles, insulter of hats John has performed all over world during the last decade. He sings, dances and is pretty damn joyous.
“A manic and quick-witted revelation” ****The Scotsman
"A tightly- scripted surreal monologue full of fascinating true stories" List UK
Completing the bill is rising star MATT WINNING.
Winner of the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2011, Matt is one of the most exciting, unique and imaginative new stand-up and character comedians in the UK. The Scottish comic's eccentric and idiosyncratic act is a whirlwind of ideas, combining an original approach to one-liners, acute observations and shouting loudly. Matt was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards 2012. He was also finalist in the Chortle Student Comedy Awards in 2010.
“Fine and distinctive one-liners in his set, with strange points of reference and clever exposition......an inventive writer” - Steve Bennett, Chortle
“Instant laughs” - The Skinny
"A Scottish Milton Jones... so well done and over the top that the audience are pulled into his world" Festival Journal
