'Skinhead, intellectual, and specialist compere, Roger Monkhouse employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience' (Glee) 'His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind' (The Guardian) 'Pulls punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air... Saucy - and uncompromisingly so - sometimes topical, sometimes punny, sometimes clever, sometimes daft... There is, in short, something in this varied comedy menu for every taste... A gifted natural... One of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit' (Chortle) '... one of the most experienced acts in the business. His deadpan style and quick wit make him one of the best acts out there, and he is a regular fixture at top venues all over the country, as well as performing extensively throughout the rest of the world' (Funhouse Comedy).

Paramount Funniest Student Runner Up 2009 and Chortle Student Comedy Awards Finalist 2009, Laura Lexx is a uniquely gleeful performer with an easy, chatty style that covers all things from the West Country to the aging process of socks. Performing mainly in London and the South, Lexx is a chirpy addition to any line up. '... the positive and personable Laura Lexx, with her delightfully funny take on things. Happy to discuss anything with the audience her distinctive style is both cheeky and charming' (Funhouse Comedy) 'One of the most delightful performers you're ever likely to see' (GQ Magazine).

Highly regarded as one of the best acts to emerge from the south west in recent years, award winning stand-up comedian Luke Honnoraty has been hotly tipped by some of the UK's biggest promoters as 'one to watch'. After bursting onto the circuit in 2010 as the winner of the 'South West New Act of the Year', Luke has gone from strength and is now performing alongside the best names in comedy in some if the UK's best comedy clubs. Having supported the likes of Matt Richardson and Russell Kane in the past, Plus Supporting Katherine Ryan on the south west tour dates of 2014 and in the following year took his first show 'Small Town Heroes' to the Edinburgh Fringe. In 2017 Luke was picked to support Joel Dommett on the southwest leg of his tour. An infectiously funny, natural born comic who is the perfect addition to any comedy line up.

After a brief career in computer animation, Henry Paker decided to give comedy a go. He started out doing stand up in rooms above pubs, then in rooms below pubs and then eventually in the main body of the pub itself. In 2008 he won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and realised he might be onto something. Since then Henry’s many comic talents have seen him carve out a career as a comic writer, stand up, actor and cartoonist. 'Fabulous narrative arc and tremendous panache that is utterly winning and delights an audience’ (Chortle) 'Charming, inventive and very funny' (British Comedy Guide) 'Has the audience rolling in the aisles for the vast majority of an action-packed hour. Paker is a riotous, iconoclastic star in the making' (Fest) '... the star is Henry Paker; every one of his jokes is built up perfectly, and the punchline is always hilarious. Clever material, but silly enough not to alienate anyone' (Three Weeks).
