The irresistibly amiable John Ryan uses his acerbic wit and seemingly encyclopaedic knowledge of the world around him to keep any audience on their toes. His East End Irish upbringing gives him the rare ability to connect with people from diverse backgrounds. No stranger to either the strange or the norm, he will put an amusing spin on any subject matter going. An already established writer he undertook a new venture in 2006 as one half of the duo him 'n' im, and he penned an 'unofficial' World Cup ditty, 'We're going to do quite well .. injury permitting!', which received radio play up and down the country'. Alongside his successful career as a stand-up comedian, John is in high demand for his hilarious health-related humour. “If you can make people laugh, you can make people listen” says John, and laugh they do.

Rich Wilson has loved comedy ever since his older next door neighbour gave him a cassette of Eddie Murphy - Delirious.'It was the most mindblowing thing I'd ever heard. My young ears had never heard language like it.'
His comedy aspirations lay dormant until he got a job as a barman at a comedy club in Greenwich, South London. Then in 2004 following some back slapping by those around him, Rich Wilson hit the stage and even amazing himself, hasn't looked back since.
'Highly entertaining' (Time Out)
'He's a very, very funny man' (Frank Skinner).

Romesh burst onto the comedy circuit in 2010, gigging regularly at top venues all over the country. As well as turning in storming turns on a regular basis, he has also found time to reach the Latitude New Act Final 2010, The So You Think You're Funny? Final 2010 as well as coming runner up in The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2010.
He has forged a fearsome reputation with a set that combines cutting one liners with an acerbic take on the world around him.
'Extraordinarily hilarious' (Three Weeks)
'Plenty to enjoy in his ultra sardonic set' (Chortle)
'his ability to write bitingly fresh gags marks him out from the crowd... Ranganathan's punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers' (The Guardian).

More topical than Trevor MacDonald, Steve is one of the tallest guys on the circuit and certainly one of the most original. His Welsh genes allow him to have a totally different aspect on life although he hasn't lost any of the traditional Welsh values, including their fondness for sheep. He has supported Lee Mack on tour, appeared on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and was nominated for a Chortle Award. Steve never fails to surprise and engage audiences with his hybrid of bizarre stories, larger than life physicality, spontaneous improvisation and skewed view of everyday life.
'Steve Williams has proven his lauders correct and come of age as one of Britain's best stand-up performers... effortless audience interaction, inventive and adaptable use of his material and some of the best natural improvisation you will see at the Fringe this year... an hour filled with a constant torrent of laughter' (Fest).
