Mark Dolan tour dates
Andy has enjoyed huge success as a writer and performer on television and radio, as well as on stage. Andy has enjoyed huge success as a writer and performer on television, radio and the live comedy stage. As well as a series regular on the award-winning Mock The Week (BBC 2) and numerous spots on Live At The Apollo (BBC 1), QI (BBC2), The Politics Show (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), The World’s Most Dangerous Roads (BBC2), Comedy World Cup (Channel 4), Saturday Live (ITV) and Channel 4’s Comedy Gala At The O2. Andy was also one of the main writers on the original Spitting Image on ITV. To date Andy has done three sell-out National tours and in 2009 released his debut DVD 'Britain's Got Idiots', which was followed up by 'Gruntled' in 2011, with a 3rd DVD due for release in late 2013. "It's great to welcome sharp, topical comedy on to the live circuit - and Parsons remains one of its most skilful exponents" - The Guardian. "Andy Parsons' lethal mixture of anger and ridicule leaves the Big Society in tatters" - The Times.
Andy Parsons tour dates
Since coming to the UK, the Canadian has built up a reputation as a popular and highly recommended comedian. He is willing to tackle a huge range of topics, from the obscure to the familiar, from a simple gag to quirky, inventive, rambling anecdotes with unexpected punchlines. Even if he occasionally seems to lose sight of where he's going, at least you know he's taking the audience with him.
'Wonderfully imaginative, original and hilarious' (Rhod Gilbert)
'Gloriously funny silly and smart' (The Scotsman)
'One of the best practitioners of stand-up we've got... stand-up elite' (Chortle)
'An insider's tip for comedy greatness...comic riffs of monumental proportions'
Tom Stade tour dates
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
Guildford's own Holly Walsh has many a string to her bow, being a finalist in 2006's So You Think You're Funny? and Funny Women contests, as well as presenting for CBBC. A brilliant purveyor of one-line gags and witty puns.
Holly Walsh tour dates
Human amphetamine of a comic from Brighton. Compere at the Krater comedy club.
'Stephen Grant is nothing if not original. Supremely intelligent yet utterly accessible, his charm lies in the quick-fire speed of his mind' (The Stage).
Stephen Grant tour dates
His acidic delivery and dead pan demeanour have established him as one of the top comedians on the circuit. He is a regular performer at the Comedy Store and has clocked up several TV appearances, including 'They Think It's All Over' and 'Have I Got News For You'. To add to his number of international accolades, he was the winner of the Jongleurs Stand Up Of The Year in 2001.
John Moloney tour dates
