Alex Haddow

Comedian: Alex Haddow - Angel Comedy

Upcoming Shows


Alex has become one of our most popular MCs, brilliant at crowd work and making the whole audience feel immediately at home and like one of her best friends. She always has us in the palm of her hand. But her material is so on point you’d be a bloody fool to ignore her straight stand-up. She expertly walks the fine line between cheeky and outright smut, with great stories that bring you in before catching you with the sting in the tail. She’s just got genuinely funny bones – able to craft a laugh out of every situation.

When she’s not hosting or playing shows, Alex is also one of the hosts of The School for Dumb Women, which answers essential questions like, “Should I be Norwegian?” or “Are Beavers cancelled?”, and most importantly, “What is Gwyneth Paltrow?”

Archie Maddocks

Comedian: Archie Maddocks - Angel Comedy

Archie has been with us forever, and if you’ve seen him headline or open one of our mixed bill gigs then you know he’s one of the funniest comedians on the circuit. He’s cheeky but whip-smart, taking everyday situations and teasing them into something unique and pointing out the strange truths that lies behind them. His natural charm and stage presence allows him to get away with trolling and poking fun at everything and everyone.

We’re not the only people to have found him funny. He was a finalist in both the New Acts of the Year and English Comedian of the year in 2014. He was also the runner-up in the Amused Moose Laugh Off competition and the winner of the Bath New Act of The Year in 2014. In 2016, he took his debut show Shirts Vs Skins to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which received excellent reviews and followed with a tour of South Africa in 2017. His follow-up show, IlluminArchie, was loved by critics and audience alike. Archie recently appeared on Comedy Central’s Guessable? Here’s some of the things that critics have been saying about him:

  • “I don’t think it’s possible to watch Archie perform and not have a great time” – Radio Ha-ha ★★★★
  • “It’s clear that Archie Maddocks has found his calling in comedy…a brilliant job balancing light silly humour with thought-provoking, refreshing and subversive social discussion.” – Entertainment Focus ★★★★
  • “a stellar example of stand-up comedy” – The National Student ★★★★
  • “Poignant, inventive and razor sharp” – Broadway Baby ★★★★
  • “He is a natural with an audience, boldly exploring controversial topics such as race and religion. Just as you’ve tensed up, he manages to bring the energy back down with amazing skill – leaving everyone in stitches by the end of the show”- Ed Fest Mag ★★★★

Most importantly, he’s been trying to inculcate in our staff a deep addiction to frozen yoghurt. Honestly if you could all patronise this shop on the way to and from our clubs then it will help keep it open and ensure that Archie is kept in sweet treats and ready to knock your socks off on stage.

Jason Patterson

Comedian: Jason Patterson - Angel Comedy

Jason has been a regular on our mixed bill shows for years, and always been a firm audience favourite. No matter what topics he ranges across, even ones that some tiresomely ‘edgy’ comics might pick, he manages to find warm, hilarious takes that make everyone feel included. His slice of life material kills wherever he plays, so it’s only a matter of time now that he’s working on his new show, before the UK comedy industry takes note and he becomes as famous as he deserves to be.
