Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Following stand out performances on Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Let's Dance For Comic Relief (BBC1), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1) and Mock The Week (BBC2), Hal is being strongly tipped as the next big thing.
Hal's comedy is simultaneously warm and catty, straight and camp - it's a lovely mix that has made him a regular guest on John Bishops's Only Joking (Sky1) and led to not one, but two sitcoms being produced this year.
'An absolute joy to watch... fabulous' (The Scotsman)
'Best solo stand-up show to date' (The Daily Telegraph)
'He had the audience eating out of his hands' (Chortle)
'On the edge of great fame' (Fest).
Hal Cruttenden tour dates
Comedian, compere and playwright. This grumpy old man per excellence presents the BBC Radio 4 show 'Excess Baggage' and has written four plays including 'An Evening With Gary Lineker' and 'Live Bed Show'. His stand-up topics range from vigorous yodelling to mediaeval literature via death by drink. His delivery is relaxed and sardonic, but his shows are a surprising, dark and witty treat. He's also one of the many 'Grumpy Old Men' that appear on BBC 2's hit show.
Arthur Smith tour dates
A stand up comedian working in the UK and abroad.
A popular comic/DJ on MTV, Ben has also performed on the BBC's Stand Up Show and They Think It's All Over.
His routines are a breath of fresh air, and highly original - check out his Shakespearian Porn routine...
'Killer gags' (The Scotsman)
'well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics' (Chortle)
'A master of the craft... an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see'
'One of the comedy circuits best improvisers' (The Daily Mirror).
Ben Norris tour dates
Multi-award-winning Scottish comedienne, playwright, award-winning blogger, best-selling author and former 'Scotsman' newspaper columnist Janey Godley has performed her comedy shows and one-woman plays around the world, including off-Broadway in New York. She is a regular on BBC Radio 4's 'Just a Minute'. In 2008, 'Time Out' readers voted her No 3 in their list of Top Ten comedians. Her autobiography 'Handstands in the Dark' was a No 3 hardback bestseller in 2005 and a UK Top Ten paperback bestseller in 2006. That same year, Janey was nominated as and was close runner-up for the annual 'Scotswoman of the Year' title as 'the most inspirational woman in Scotland'.
Janey Godley tour dates
UK-based Norwegian comedian 'with a more-than-agreeable line in weird observations' (Chortle).
'Exquisitely crafted gags and out-and-out surrealism, at its best like a fusion of Emo Philips and Vic and Bob' (The Guardian)
'You knew he was funny before he even opened his mouth' (Scotsman)
'No doubt that Simonsen has proven himself a talent to keep an eye on' (Time Out)
'An outstanding comedian' (Fringe Guru).
