Marlon Davis is a bright young comedian, improviser and actor who embraces his work with energy and charm, embodying his characters and delivering his acute observational material with aplomb. His act is inspired from his upbringing, exploring Britain and tackling its social issues with skilful characterisations. Winner of the FHM Search For A Stand-Up Hero Competition in 2009. In 2006, he was a finalist in both the So You Think You're Funny and Laughing Horse new act competitions. Still a relative newcomer, Marlon Davis is like a breath of fresh air on stage, with an impish grin, boyish enthusiasm and an effortlessly open, confident style that instantly wins him friends in the audience. 'A compelling storyteller whose anecdotes carry the elusive stamp of urban authenticity' (The Scotsman).

Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Winner in 2010. 'Deane's well timed deadpan delivery was on cue every time, he'll definitely be one to watch' (Medway News) 'A particularly nice line in understated pay-offs' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard) 'Well written gags, well executed one liners' (Chortle) '... he's able to generate a stream of seriously good gags, the kind of quick, sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines that'll always keep a comic in work and an audience richly entertained' (The Guardian) 'It's just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings... His trick is to make you think you're watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines' (The Independent).

Tom Mayhew is a stand-up comedian, writer, podcaster and actor. He covers many topics in his stand-up, including being working-class, politics, and mental health. He likes to write stand-up that is a mix of the brutally honest and the ridiculous. Tom won The Comedy Store's King Gong in 2016, was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017, and reached the BBC New Comedy Award Semi-Finals in 2018, which was recorded live at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra. He has performed comedy for BBC Radio 1, and written for The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4) and Newsjack (BBC Radio 4 Extra). Tom also presents the 'The 18 Percent Podcast', which was launched in November 2018. Inspired by a 2018 study which found that only 18% of those in the performing arts are working-class, it explores the relationship between class and art, and sees him interviewing a wide range of working class artists and industry creatives. "It's a fascinating brain he's got in there, with as much of this distinctive hour spent trying to solve the riddle of Mayhew as it is him making you laugh." - Chortle "Tom Mayhew’s charmingly awkward persona hides a fantastic alternative comic mind. His jokes are sharp, never predictable and consistently land." - Broadway Baby "His content is from the heart....spellbinding, raw and telling. He is a genuine joy to watch." - Kate Copstick
