Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
'Barbara Nice - ordinary housewife extraodinaire - has given up the domestic bliss of Tupperware and Poundstretcher shops for the unpredictability of the comedy circuit (her husband thinks she's at the bingo). No audience is too rowdy for her to handle - she's already raised five teenagers. She believes in bargains, Take a Break magazine, getting the most from life. Oh and Stage-diving! This well observed comedy character is so likeable that she draws even the most cynical of audiences and takes them along for a ride. 'A hybrid between Victoria Wood and Mrs Merton' - The Times.
Mrs Barbara Nice tour dates
Maureen is frank, fast, feisty, sharp and engaging – honest humour with attitude! She works as a stand up comedian and compere all around the UK and abroad and even gigs in German! As an experienced compere, Maureen is known for her quick wit and sharp audience interaction. In the UK she is one of the few comedians who works regularly on the mainstream and urban comedy circuits.
Her gigs have ranged from being the support act for the entire West End run of The Naked Magicians at the Trafalgar Studios as well as one of the warm up acts for Puppetry of the Penis to performing at the Barbican alongside Arthur Smith; supporting Shazia Mirza on tour; to being one of the acts at the Jamaica vs The World gigs at the Shepherds Bush Empire.
Maureen is also the resident MC of MY Comedy in London and Birmingham, and has worked as a contributor on BBC Radio and Sky News.
'Maureen Younger is more than compere, more than host, with a natural gift of the gab she's quick off the mark and doesn't miss a trick!' (http://www.gingerbeer.co.uk)
'If you have been lucky enough to see her perform you will be fully aware of just how funny and infectious this woman is.' (Time Out)
“one of the best MCs in the country” (Jo Enright)
'... whose punch lines also hit the mark in German' (Cologne Rundschau)
'Engaging and funny' (Three Weeks).
Maureen Younger tour dates
Former singer / songwriter who, prompted by friends and fans who often found themselves in fits of giggles at her silly in between song banter, entered Channel 4's So You Think You're Funny and found herself in the semi finals at Edinburgh Fringe in Summer 2004. Rosie made the switch to comedy in 2005.
'A whole host of laughs' (http://www.one4review.co.uk)
'utterly charming' (Buzz)
'you will fall for Wilby's show no matter where you sit on the Kinsey scale' (Scotsgay).
Rosie Wilby tour dates
Claire is one hell of a women. She would like to say that she always gives that little bit extra but quite frankly that would be a lie because she is a post op transsexual.
Claire has that wonderful ability to both fascinate and entertain with a persona which is somewhere between Jo Brand and Jack Dee.
She loves building bridges between herself and the audience in a unique way that is both disarming and just a little bit naughty.
You come away believing that you were there on her journey.
