We also welcome Martin Bearne who is making his Trickery debut. Bearne has the eyes and smile of a crazy man, and the comedy styling to go with it. With the ‘charm’ of Frankie Boyle, and the laugh-then-gasp allure of Jimmy Carr, proving that filth and offence can ground a great comedy set. Bearne combines the one-liner approach with story-telling, as he ties his quick jokes together and builds up to a finale of uncontrollable laughter. His style is best described as dark and surreal.
