With some very exciting big names already signed up to take part in this year’s show plus more to be

Neil Delamere is one of the most in-demand comedians on Irish television, and well on track to repeat his success here in the UK. He is best known to UK audiences for a storming appearance on the first series of Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow on BBC1, and has also appeared on The World Stand Ups and Live At The Comedy Store, both on Comedy Central. Neil is one of a handful of performers to consistently receive five star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe year-after-year. For his 2009 Edinburgh show, 'Creme Delamere', he won five star rave reviews from the likes of Chortle, the Scotsman, the Herald and Three Weeks Magazine. He has also released two platinum-selling DVDs and has performed all over the world, including at the prestigious Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival, the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the New Zealand Comedy Festival.
Neil Delamere tour dates
One of the most talented and popular comedians to have recently emerged, Paul is inspired by comedians such as Richard Prior, George Carlin and Sam Kinison. Constantly challenging and relentlessly inventive, his comedy fuels an eclectic set punctuated by impressive feats of mimicry and verbal dexterity. Paul's highly charged dry observational humour taps into the multicultural diversity of contemporary Britain. 'One of the finest Asian comics around... A great take on multicultural Britain.' -Time Out.
Paul Chowdhry tour dates
'An exceptional comedian, his pace is relentless and his material beautifully observed and exquisitely crafted... inspiring and brilliant' (Chortle). Russell Kane was nominated for the main prize at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008 and 2009 - a brilliant comedy talent.

An Iranian female stand-up comic who has established herself on the London circuit. A finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards 2000 and second place winner of the Hackney Empire New Act 2000. As seen as on Live At The Apollo, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, 8/10 Cats and Have I Got News For You. One of the hottest comedy prospects in the country, Shappi is feisty, flirty and effortlessly funny handling every subject with razor sharp wit. "One of Britain's brightest young comedians." - The Daily Telegraph.

He is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4 as a regular on The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive. 'Absolutely brilliant' according to Caroline Aherne, and he has justified the tag, regularly selling out his shows in Edinburgh and racking up the television and radio credits.
