This week sees the return of the unruly Reverend Obadiah Steppenwolfe III, alongside Carly Baker, Barry McDonald and Billy Kirkwood. It's definitely worth a shout catching these guys!

Winner of the 2003 Chortle Award for Best Breakthrough Act and a star of BBC2's Live Floor Show, The Reverend is not your average holy man. With his heavy metal music, black leather, sunglasses and love of hot tub bible classes, he cuts a pretty intimidating figure. A true two-fisted Tennessee trailer-trash TV evangelist, he makes the sinners swing from the rafters.

Having managed to offend virtually every religious group and been barred from most places of worship, The Reverend has taken to spreading the word of the Lord on the BBC, as well as around comedy clubs all over the UK. He was a regular on both series of BBC Scotland's Live Floor Show, for which he was nominated for a Scottish BAFTA best newcomer award.

His 2003 Edinburgh Fringe show with Frankie Boyle provoked massive, diverse reactions and was simultaneously hailed as the most exciting and original as well as the most offensive and dangerous show on the fringe. This show led to The Rev and Frankie being commissioned to write on the Channel 4 Jimmy Carr vehicle, 'Distraction' and its' subsequent re-commission.

2006 saw The Reverend writing for Channel 4's '8 Out Of 10 Cats' and Channel 4 Radio as well as for BBC TWO's 'Mock The Week'. He stole the show at the Reading Festival, his festival debut, and his Edinburgh Festival Show, 'What Would Charlie Sheen Do?' received 5 star reviews.

'The man is a tornado, a fount of pitch-perfect jokes coupled with quite masterful timing and material that flouts the very laws of censure.........Utterly challenging and well-crafted, it is, of course, howlingly funny.' The Metro

'Laugh? I almost **** myself. Rarely at the festival do you get a) amazing Scottish comedy and b) comedians who can send you into a fit of absolute hysteria for hours - Class. The two comedians from BBC's 'Live Floor Show' appeared laid-back and blas, yet have killer lines and must rank among the best Scottish performers at the festivals. An absolute must-see.'
