Like a battering ram to the funny-bone, WitTank (Kieran Boyd, Mark Cooper-Jones and Naz Osmanoglu), stars of BBC Three's new talent showcase Live At The Electric rocket back to the Fringe with a lavish parade of inventive characters and sketch magnificence. Hotly tipped as ones to watch for the future, why not catch them now, in the present?
Kieran Boyd was a semi-finalist in So You Think You're Funny 2009 and the Amused Moose Laugh-Off 2010. At the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009 and 2010 he compered the stand-up showcase, Comedy Baby and last year performed in the stand-up show Don't Mess. In 2011 he also directed a sketch show from The Leeds Tealights. This summer, Kieran will also be performing at the Fringe as part of The Comedy Zone, the festival's longest running and most prestigious stand-up showcase.
Mark Cooper-Jones, Chortle Best Newcomer 2012 nominee and Loaded Laftas runner-up 2011, is an authoritative stand-up with a penchant for rules and 'Countries and Capitals' tests - mainly due to his past experience as a geography teacher. Following the success of his split show, Don't Mess, alongside Kieran Boyd at the Edinburgh festival last year, Mark will also be taking his first solo show, Mark Cooper Jones: Geography Teacher to the Festival this summer.
Naz Osmanoglu, as seen on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three), winner of the Amused Moose Laugh-off Competition 2009 and finalist in Edinburgh's So You Think You're Funny 2009, is fast becoming one of the hottest stand-ups on the circuit. Naz will also be performing his second solo show at this year's Fringe, Ottoman Without an Empire.
