Sean Percival, Reverend Obadiah Steppenwolfe III, Pierre Hollins and Phil Dinsdale are practicing their laugh-a-minute material ready to take the St Ives stage by storm.

Hailing from Dudley in the West Midlands, Percival is renowned for his down-to-earth brand of humour - the antithesis of safe, middle class political correctness. He is a regular on the circuit, with shows at The Comedy Store in London and the successful Jongleurs chain of clubs. He has appeared at the Glastonbury, Edinburgh, and Reading festivals, and has entertained troops abroad.

Meanwhile, Reverend Obadiah Steppenwolfe III is a master gag teller who reels off one outrageous punchline after another. An unorthodox holy man who espouses heavy metal music, black leather, sunglasses, and hot tub bible classes, this is a comic genius with a very different take on the world.

The journey into the darkest depths of the counterculture continues with Pierre Hollins, a guitar-wielding, subversive funnyman who combines absurd songs and spot-on satire.

He has been a comedy circuit favourite for many years, and has headlined clubs throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Topping off the line-up will be warm and witty ex-steelworker Phil Dinsdale, who will banter with the audience as the compere for the evening. With sharp delivery and a unique outlook, he has become renowned for his tongue-in-cheek treatment of topical issues.
