Based in Manchester, award-winning comedian Freddy Quinne‘s ‘uniquely northern observational humour’ (Lancashire Evening Post) has seen a meteoric rise into some of the biggest clubs in the country. Quinne couples “clever, well placed gags” (Pickled Egg) together with a vulnerable persona for a unique experience which combines to make ‘a real tour de force performance’ (Alex Boardman). His willingness to break away from his set and involve the crowd leads for an engaging and memorable set backed up with frantic energy and raw emotion.
