Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Winning over critics and fans alike, James Acaster has earned himself a reputation as one of the most hotly tipped acts of 2012. Effortlessly confident, James's appreciation for the whimsy and detail of everyday life are a breath of fresh air. His laid back style, playful wit and appetite for the unconventional make for an evening of mirth and hilarity, and a night in his company is a treat to behold.
Since winning Laughing Boy New Act of the Year, James has gone from strength to strength appearing on Dave's One Night Stand, Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three) and Show & Tell (E4) whilst also playing to over 100,000 people on tour with Milton Jones.
'Curious, original, immensely enjoyable stuff' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department' (Evening Standard)
'Reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring but suffused with enough of his own personality to sound crisp and fresh' (The Independent).

Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes, as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent)
'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe tour dates
Eric is renowned for sweeping up audiences in the sheer energy of his performance. Delightfully weird with a keen eye for the absurd, his scatty character rips like a mini-hurricane.
Eric Lampaert tour dates
Winner: Best Debut Show – 2009 Leicester Comedy Festival.
John has quickly made his name as one of the most quick-witted, engaging comedians on the circuit. He's the latest to burst out of Bristol's hotbed of talent and he has stories to tell, banter to have and bombs to drop.
'Funnier than all of them, his self-deprecation and Olympic ad-libbing would have you skipping happily down even the darkest alley' (Venue)
'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
'Comedy's best kept secret' (Skinny)
'A complete and utter natural' (Russell Howard)
'... fantastically entertaining' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Sparkling stand-up' (The Times)
'One of the most consistently pleasing hours on the fringe' (The Independent)
'One of the most naturally gifted comedians I've seen' (The Daily Telegraph).
John Robins tour dates
Live at The Electric star Tom Craine is 'wise, funny lyrical'. He has been the Guardian's Critic's Choice and The Times Top 5 Picks Edinburgh 2011.
Tom Craine tour dates
Beginning his career with the sketch group Bachman Turner Improvise in 2005, David Morgan has become a regular compere on the circuit. His debut show Triple Threat was nominated for best new show at the 2011 Leicester Comedy Festival.
'Immensely likeable stage presence, a smart neat turn of phrase' (The Scotsman)
