Newcastle's best export since Brown Ale. Gavin Webster's style of comedy is loud, sharp and controversial - and audiences love him for it. A definite Geordie, Gavin has superb stage presence. His material is bold and provocative yet delivered in a charming manner - which has brought him much praise and attention.
'Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you'll find' (The Scotsman)
'Palpably funny' (The Herald)
'His daftness is little short of surreal genius' (The Stage).

Andrew’s quintessentially Irish storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanor make him a natural observational stand up. A regular at the Edinburgh Festival and one of the most in demand acts on the UK & Irish comedy scene.
The Cork native immediately gets audiences on-side with a likable, bewildered style described as 'impossible not to warm to' (Chortle).
'Utterly brilliant... going to be a huge star' (Time Out)
'Made his set look easy, left us wanting more' (The Stage)
'Hilarious and accessible with some really powerful thinking underneath' (The Skinny)
'Funnier than Ardal O' Hanlon with an abundance of charm and great stage presence' (City Life).

Although hailed as the only blind comic on the stand up circuit, comedian Chris McCausland makes light of it. He usually begins with a crack about the irony of a blind man doing observational comedy and then speeds off into his entertaining and refreshing set, making wry and perceptive comments about the rich and famous, every day life and suchlike. Instantly likeable and definitely memorable.
'Proper stand up, honest straightforward and balls-out funny' (Chortle)
'A must see!' (The Sunday Times)
'Always excellent' (The Times)
'Truly brilliant' (Three Weeks)
'The new face of comedy in the UK' (ITV)
'Shining Light!' (Sunday Express)
'... fabulously funny and a definite highlight' (Leicester Mercury).

Cardiff-based stand-up comedian. A versatile comic actor whose character creation 'Rex' is a regular feature on Rhod Gilbert's BBC Radio Wales show, Elis' profile has been boosted with frequent appearances on BBC Radio One Wales, two critically acclaimed Edinburgh solo shows (The Most Cautious Little Boy in Wales – 2009, and Daytripper – 2010) plus numerous appearances on the UK comedy circuit including tour support act for Rhod Gilbert.
For Elis's 2009 Edinburgh Fringe offering, The Most Cautious Little Boy In Wales, he was subsequently selected for the Best Of The Edinburgh Fest Australian tour, an honour that has been bestowed in previous years to the likes of Dylan Moran, Ross Noble, Simon Pegg and Ardal O'Hanlon. He has also extensively toured Daytripper at the Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane comedy festivals.
'He hypnotises the audience into loving him. There's also a laugh every ten seconds or so which overall makes it a complete joy' (Time Out)
'An intensely likable performer, he manages to get the audience to share in the heat of his unlikely passion, and you'll be rooting for him throughout his various misadventures' (The Guardian).
