Stand Up For Firebox: Francesca Martinez, Mark Thomas, Jeremy Hardy, Stewart Lee, Tony Benn
Firebox is a haven for dangerously progressive ideas in the heart of London. This is a political project initiated by Counterfire and bringing the best the left has to offer in ideas, debate, art and culture.
Rising comedy star and ex-Grange Hill actress (playing Rachel Burns) whose shows are a mix of stand-up and flashback sketches. Not one to shy away from the important issues, in 2008 Francesca made global headlines when she became the first Olympic Torch-Bearer to pull out of the London relay in protest against China’s treatment of Tibet. She has mild cerebral palsy but she much prefers the word ‘wobbly’.
Francesca Martinez tour dates
TV's comedy guerilla with his own shrewd take on governmental and corporate exploitation. Mark Thomas is well versed in the art of creative mayhem and over the years his troublemaking has changed laws, cost companies millions and annoyed those who most deserved to be.

Jeremy Hardy has been a stand-up comic since 1984 and will be one until he dies or wins the lottery.
Jeremy is best known for his work on Radio 4, notably on News Quiz, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation. In 2010, he published a book, My Family and Other Strangers, chronicling his desperate search for interesting ancestors.
'In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material' (The Guardian)
'A comic genius' (Sandi Toksvig).
Jeremy Hardy tour dates
An official Channel 4 survey of the 100 Greatest Stand-ups Ever placed Stewart Lee at number 41. His mother, whom he loves dearly, thinks Tom O'Connor the better comedian, having seen him do a joke about a sardine on a cruise ship ten years ago. And he isn't even in the top 100...
'The funniest, most cliche-free comedian on the circuit' (Ricky Gervais).
'Marvellously funny: mordant, thoughtful and crafted' (Observer)
'Masterful' (The Daily Telegraph).
Stewart Lee tour dates
