Burt Williamson is a stand-up comedian, improviser and comedy producer.

At the forefront of a new and exciting generation of comics emerging from Bristol, Burt leads the charge on a new dawn for British comedy.
“His beautifully crafted set is clever in unguessable ways, unexpectedly hilarious at every turn and a great joy wrapped up in a big laugh, sprinkled with adorable.” – The Scotsman
