Can you believe all of these Cookie shows are so cheap? Ridiculous. Carey Marx is a comedian who I should probably preface with a “not for the faint-hearted” tag – he’s described as having a “wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate” in his press. He is, however, a darkly comic comedy magician – or magical comedian – and anyone who’s seen acts like Jerry Sadowitz or Piff The Magic Dragon know that dark humour is a trademark of some genuinely brilliant comedy magic acts. Proceed with caution, but it could be very fun. Peter Brush has a delicately crafted writing style which has seen him finalist for both the BBC New Comedy Award and Harrogate Comedian of the Year, as well as gaining him a writing gig on Radio 4’s The News Quiz.
