Probably best known as being a third of the We Are Klang sketch group, Steve Hall is a superb stand-up in his own right and has provided support for Russell Howard on three of his sell-out national tours.
Steve has been called a Steve Coogan 'lookalike and soundalike', which makes sense as they are distantly related through a convoluted web of Irish cousins. Hecklers tend to think Steve looks more like Mr Bean. Daily Telegraph Comedy Awards 2003 and BBC Comedy Awards 2003 runner-up.
'The most intelligent stand-up you've never heard of' (GQ)
'His phrasing is joyous and choice of words close to poetic' (Metro)
'Deadpan brilliance' (Time Out)
'Wonderfully misanthropic' (Sunday Times)
''Russell Howard's fine tour support' (The Times)
'A lovely, friendly, thoroughly entertaining show' (Chortle)
'This is stand-up as it should be: snappy and smart, occasionally nasty, and always funny' (The List).

John started his comedy career in May 1999, and just two months later he was participating in his first fringe of the Edinburgh Festival in 'Stand up Scotland' - a showcase for the best new talent emerging on the Scottish circuit.
Since that time he has gone on to complete five runs in Edinburgh, won the 'Spike Milligan Award' for new talent 2003, and worked as a sketch performer on numerous BBC TV pilots.
'... cheeky, commanding and always oozing charm his hilarious tales of class-based woe never miss the mark and are delivered with killer punch lines...' (Funhouse Comedy).
John Scott tour dates
'Wayne The Weird is an outrageous comedian and magician' (The Southern Daily Echo).
'No-one in the audience will be able to ever look at rubber gloves and white rabbits in the same way again' (Creative Cows Comedy).
'... the outrageous comedian and magician... Bamboozling and fascinating the audience with trickery, his balance of comedy, magic and banter is the recipe for his success' (Funhouse Comedy).
Wayne The Weird tour dates
Romesh burst onto the comedy circuit in 2010, gigging regularly at top venues all over the country. As well as turning in storming turns on a regular basis, he has also found time to reach the Latitude New Act Final 2010, The So You Think You're Funny? Final 2010 as well as coming runner up in The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2010.
In 2015 Romesh starred in his own show called 'Asian Provocateur' (BBC Three) where he travelled to Sri Lanka to learn about his parents' country. In 2016 the second series 'Mum's American Dream' was commissioned.
He has forged a fearsome reputation with a set that combines cutting one liners with an acerbic take on the world around him.
'Extraordinarily hilarious' (Three Weeks)
'Plenty to enjoy in his ultra sardonic set' (Chortle)
'His ability to write bitingly fresh gags marks him out from the crowd... Ranganathan's punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers' (The Guardian).
Romesh Ranganathan was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
