About the event
James Sherwood has become one of the country’s foremost comedy writers and continues to rapidly ascend the stand-up circuit. Having received the BBC Radio Entertainment writers’ bursary in 2008, James contributes to radio shows across the BBC, including The Now Show, The News Quiz and BBC7’s new topical comedy sketch show, Tilt.
His debut Edinburgh show in 2006, ‘I Know What You Did Last Sunday’, sold out and was similarly followed with 2007’s offering, ‘James Sherwood’s Somewhat Premature Review Of 2007’. Having originally made a name for himself on the live circuit as a topical comic, in recent years James has incorporated a number of self-penned, original comic songs into his act.
During the 2005 general election campaign, his political material appeared on BBC Radio 1, 2, and 4. He has also written for Private Eye and is a frequent studio pundit on the Sky News Paper Review.

Justin brought back tiger-faced Young Kenny for the record-breaking run of Phoenix Nights Live at The Manchester Arena, which raised over £5 million for comic relief.
His comedy has taken him on tour to Australia, China, Japan and the Middle East. He has performed stand up comedy on television a number of times including, several series of The Comedy Store (Comedy Central), One Night Stand (Dave) and was Michael McIntyre’s guest on his Blackpool leg of Comedy Roadshow (BBC1).
