'Outstanding young comic and one to watch. Headed for great things!’ - Harry Hill

Formerly a dead pan comedian but almost noticeably happier these days almosty. He has no wry observations on life, no political satire, no cranky slapstick actions, just an innate ability to crack some of the best hand made gags on the circuit today, delivered with perfect timimg (normally always on stage). Sometimes scruffy, sometimes smart, often blue occasionally crude, always entertaining.

He made his comedic debut in a room behind a pub back in 1993 and since then has gone on to achieve great things with marvellous reviews, the Guardian called David a 'comic genius’ (he knows Desperate Dan is in the Dandy and not the Beano) the Scotsman described David as 'hilariously funny’ after appearing in the screaming blue murder Edinburgh show.

If you like your comedy a little on the darker side David is the man for you.

He has complemented his live work with several radio and television appearances, most notably a blistering set in BBC1’s The Stand Up Show, and a video diary of his first one hour solo show at the 1996 Edinburgh Festival for ITV’s Funny Business.

"Ranting and raving comic genius" - The Guardian

Having exploded on to the stand up circuit last year, Alistair Williams is quickly making a name for himself with razor sharp content and high-watt charm. He’s already become a regular at the UK’s most famous venues including The Comedy Store and Up the Creek and is constantly building an ever-growing international presence. Unafraid of tackling rough subject matter, Williams is also a passionate health campaigner. Combining raw personal anecdotes with a jam packed gag count and slick extroverted style, he creates bespoke comedy content to challenge the food and health industries, regularly grabbing the attention of leading megabrands. He believes real food can change your life, a narrative which is also the through line of his 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Show. Smart, passionate, impressively quick witted and bursting with infectious confidence, this is stand up that grabs your attention and Alistair Williams is quickly solidifying his place as one of stand up’s most exciting rising stars. "Rough Diamond Charm " - Chortle
