Voted Best Live UK Comic in 2016, Jeff Innocent is nothing short of genius.

"Fabulously subversive" - The Scotsman

"The body of a nightclub bouncer and the brain of a university boffin" - The Guardian

"It should be made law that every British citizen go and see Jeff Innocent, he's that funny" - Evening Standard

Mike Wilmot is the dictionary definition of a comedy big beast. For over three decades he has torn the roof off comedy clubs all over the world, from his native Canada to Australia, via the UK, all with his signature brand of lovably grumpy storytelling. As seen on Live at the Apollo, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Rich Hall's Fishing Show.


Mike’s Newall’s timing is the envy of performers with ten times the experience and is proof that some people are just funny. His laconic style and demeanour is possible because of the strength of material and on stage presence.

“his timing is pin sharp, his control is deft and his hair is immaculate” The Scotsman

“effortlessly likeable” The List

"He is in a class of his own" Edinburgh Evening News

Mick Ferry is renowned as a fine purveyor of lugubrious surrealism and has quickly established himself as one of the most sought after comics on the British and International comedy circuit.  On our TV screens, Mick has starred in BBC One`s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as Comedy Blue and The Comedy Store for Comedy Central.

“As good as it gets… highly original and hilarious” Big Issue

“Keeping the art form of the belly laugh alive” The Mirror *****

A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.

 

‘an imaginative use of language and obtuse angles of thought that produce distinctive and eclectic gags...his best lines are inspired’ – Steve Bennett, Chortle

 

‘Yorkshire’s answer to Woody Allen’ – Harrogate Advertiser

Your MC tonight, affable, quick-witted banter merchant, Dave Twentyman survived a childhood in St Helens by evolving rapid, startlingly-bright patter and a smile that he somehow stole from Barry Manilow. A regular performer at many of the best weekend clubs in the country, Dave has also performed at a number of music festivals over the years such as Leeds, V Festival and Download.


Phil Nichol is a truly unique performer.  An acclaimed actor, award winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician – there is no end to his talent! Phil is an energetic and exciting performer with an unquenchable thirst to break boundaries and innovate with his work.  His skill as an improviser whether it be musical, comedy or straight is unparalleled. With a surreal edge to some of his mischievous rantings, Nichol always brings something new to the stage whilst his keen sense of fun and eye for the shocking and absurd has cemented his position as one of the best comedians on the circuit today.  

“A genius of a show”  The Herald


Despite looking like a slightly dishevelled and demented geography lecturer, Seymour Mace is a brilliant comedian. He crackles with childish energy, getting caught in flights of fancy and going off on strange tangents, but never loses sight of the gag. A performer worth the admission price alone.

He was a regular in BBC2's Johnny Vegas sitcom 'Ideal', a former City Life Comedian of the Year and Breakthrough Act at the North West Comedy Awards. Like a truly bizarre hybrid of Harry Hill, Half Man Half Biscuit and Viz comic, Seymour is a teller of extremely tall tales and High Priest of the terrifically twisted one-liner. He was also victorious in the Cup A Soup Comedy Challenge. You may mock such a curiously named title but the prize money was 10 grand.

'Leaves his crowd uplifted, entertained and laden with charity shop-bought gifts...Warm, original and weird' Edinburgh Festival Guide

Simon Lomas is a Chortle Awards Best Newcomer nominee and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year finalist. In July 2018 he won the biggest cash prize in UK comedy history at the Petfringe Comedian of the Year final.
