TV's comedy guerilla with his own shrewd take on governmental and corporate exploitation. Mark Thomas is well versed in the art of creative mayhem and over the years his troublemaking has changed laws, cost companies millions and annoyed those who most deserved to be.
'A brilliantly crafted hour... beautiful and heartfelt' (Metro)
'A brand of comedy that carries a far weightier purpose than to simply generate laughs... Cuckooed leaves a lasting impression' (Sunday Herald)
'A clever, funny and angry show... an excoriating, heartfelt monologue... Thomas the polemicist deploys the comedian's eye for a situation's dark absurdities' (The Guardian)
'Thomas's show ruefully tots up the cost of personal betrayal' (Sunday Times)
'Bracing, brilliant and necessary... Mark Thomas is the most intelligent of the modern leftist stand-ups... an unmissable hour' (Theatre Cat).

A heavyweight political comedian of a Marxist slant, Mark Steel has performed as a stand-up comedian on the British comedy circuit and on national tours since the '80s.
He has also written and performed The Mark Steel Solution and The Mark Steel Lecture for Radio 4, hosted Radio 5's Extra Time and produced the best selling book Reasons to be Cheerful.
'He's a man with a passionate desire to communicate his ideas, who is also very funny' (The Guardian).

Claiming her first BBC Comedy Award by the age of 17, Josie returned to performing after finishing University, notably at the Edinburgh Fringe, where she carried on winning awards for 'Kindness and Exuberance' (Best Newcomer) and later in 2007/8 for 'Trying Is Good'.
The Telegraph have described her as 'one of the most exciting female comics around'. Josie's humour is warm, optimistic and endearing, filled with rambling daft tales and all the things she likes in the world and which cheer her up.
'An original and unflagging spirit, oozing enthusiasm and intellect… Long builds delightful comedy worlds' (The Times)
'An absolute delight' (Time Out)
'A passion for ideas and creativity... this is a lovely show' (The Guardian).

Finalist 'Show Me The Funny', winner Edinburgh Festival 'Spirit of the Fringe Award'.
'Hilarious observations and beautifully written. A touching call to arms for 30 somethings' (The Metro)
'Mouthy, cynical and sexually frank, she left us wanting more' (The Guardian)
'She extracts comedy gold' (Evening Standard).
Tiffany Stevenson tour dates
A London-based Jewish comedian who usually gives great value for money by doing a double show of his solo work. Ivor Dembina runs the Hampstead Comedy Club which he founded in 1994.
'Acclaimed Jewish comedian Ivor Dembina' (The Guardian)
'The success of the performance was down to Dembina's delivery, each quick fire gag delivered with the stereotypical panache natural to this veteran of the Jewish comedy scene. I would urge you to go and see what is an excellent show' (http://www.BroadwayBaby.com).
