Info provided by the Event Organiser
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Comedian who was a 2008 Hackney Empire finalist renowned for his super-high energy performance. Imran has a unique voice stamping his mark for positive, uplifting comedy at every turn.
Born in Mombasa, Kenya and raised in the UK with a brief stint at school in the USA, Imran has also travelled much of the world including Israel/Palestine, Jordan and Saudi Arabia during the Lebanon Crisis in 2006. His work has been inspired by this rich multicultural background, giving him a youthful, energetic and highly original voice that embodies the multi-cultural wealth that exists in modern Britain.
He seamlessly switches between styles with graceful fluidity, repeatedly delivering heavy-weight punch lines with enormous panache. His seemingly light-hearted satire is mixed with hard-hitting topical commentary on contemporary issues that culminate into a tour de force of comedy offering an all-embracing sentiment in his trademark styling
'Imran Yusuf's show heralds the birth of a new comedy star. Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny, it's a glorious debut' (Time Out).

Laughter Lounge Award winner Harriet is described by The Guardian as 'definitely one to watch'.
'She’s got funny bones' (Kevin Bridges)
'Exploring the thin line between eccentric and the mental’ is perfect comedy ground for Harriet Dyer, who seems to have lived her entire life on that interface. Her instinctively funny stand-up is packed full of weird and wonderful incidents from her strange life so far – yet however outlandish the tales, they all have an absolute ring of truth' (Steve Bennett, Chortle at the Leicester Comedy Festival)
'A bundle of whimsical hilarity… a breath of fresh air... will have you in stitches' (Broadway Baby)
'Dyer made the audience feel at home and managed to wow the crowd… Loveable and delightful' (Three Weeks).

Since meeting at The Edinburgh Festival in 2000 Brian & Krysstal have entertained and delighted all kinds of audiences at comedy clubs, cabaret nights, festivals, corporate and private functions in locations far and wide.
Their sometimes bawdy humour is punctuated by silly songs, dancing and plenty of jokes.
Regular fixtures at The Edinburgh Festival for eight years, the duo have worked all over the UK as well as Germany, South Africa, Gozo, Spain, Denmark, Ireland, Australia and of course… Peckham.
Brian is infamously grumpy and deadpan, while his assistant Krysstal is glamorous but ditzy. The combination is unique and very funny. Their timing is exquisite, their humour dry and sometimes bawdy.
'Wonderful silliness, some cute songs, some political incorrectness, some sick vomit and poo jokes and a lot of originality. It is all done with that intangible panache, subtlety and ability to laugh at one's self that is quintessential to British humour' (Peter Bleby, Australian Stage).
