Info provided by the Event Organiser
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Chris Betts has performed all across Canada and the United States at independent venues, comedy clubs, and international festivals including the Comedy Works in Montreal, SXSW and the Zulu Comedy Festival.
He moved to London in 2012, since when he has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a finalist in the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year 2014.
He has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence. Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His material is a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous.
'Chris Betts is tremendous' (Such Small Portions)
'Betts is in the upper echelon of the city's performers; universally respected and admired for his professionalism, dedication and unique perspective of the world' (http://www.examiner.com)
'unhurried delivery that reeled the audience in... unflappable stage presence' (London Is Funny)
'... properly hilarious' (What's On London)
'... an enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics' (The Independent).

Stylishly shirted, Yorkshire-born Scott Bennett delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living. His sharply-written routines, drawn from real-life experiences have been delighting audiences across the country; except in Yorkshire, where they are deeply suspicious of his shirts.
Likeable, with a warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic. English Comedian of the Year Runner Up, Comedy Cellar New Act of the Year and Old Speckled Hen Comedian of the Year.
'A generous helping of wonderfully witty comic observations about life's little quirks, relationships and human behaviour. Served by a Yorkshireman with relentless enthusiasm and boundless energy' (http://www.bbc.co.uk)
'Naturally hilarious, the highlight of the evening' (Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe 2013)
'A star of the future' (Huddersfield Examiner)
'This loveable rising star enthrals his audiences with his warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic' (Funhouse Comedy).

Manchester comedian and former regular contributor to XFM's breakfast show, Hayley Ellis has gone from strength to strength since she began performing in April 2009.
A regular MC at gigs around the country, Hayley's natural warmth and girl-next-door charm make her impossible to dislike, something which has become evident in her success in new act competitions throughout the UK.
'Small in stature yet big in energy, Ellis simply makes you laugh' (Giggle Beats)
'Warm and engaging, she's a refreshing, dissenting voice in the current female trend of twee, patchwork niceties' (http://www.viewsfromthegods.co.uk).
