Actor, writer and comedian Barry Castagnola has firmly established himself as an accomplished comic performer. He has been performing stand up round the country and internationally for over four years. He started off by blagging his way on to the stage at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles and has never looked back. 'His blokey charm and willingness to make himself look ridiculous carry him through the trickiest of subject matter' (Edfest) 'Lucid urban storyteller' (Chortle).

Decidedly dark and deliciously different – a one way ticket to a world you never knew existed. Despite being 'unique', she's warm and chatty and has built a cult following for her brand of confessional comedy. 'Outstanding comic, laughs just keep on coming' (Channel 4).

Sally-Anne is charming and popular, with a winning brand of autobiographical humour. She'll take you on a journey through her slightly eccentric world, including insights into the female psyche and her compulsion to send off spoof job applications. 'Small-time country posh life versus young lady breaking into the stand-up circuit. Fabulous!' (BBC London Live) 'It's easy to imagine Hayward at the 02 or guesting on QI. She is a crowd-pleaser and a straightforward observational comic, but so are most of Britain's favourite comedians today. Hayward is easily the equal of any of them' (The Skinny) 'Innate effusive likeability with straightforward but effective writing... a primetime act' (www.Chortle.co.uk) 'Exceptionally funny' (The Independent).

Jonathan Elston is a fresh, punchy, gag-driven comic who combines sharp joke writing and quirky observations with a youthful likability that charms his audience and endears him to any room. However, as with many top comics, success means is Jonathan rarely to be found out of a coach or car. The carbon footprint that Jonathan has created since his career began is big enough to have destroyed a football pitch sized hole in the Brazilian rainforest! Despite the havoc he is wreaking on the rainforests, Jonathan is steadfast in his focus and continues to be one of the most sought after young acts working the circuit. 'A young comic with incredible talent' (The Guardian).
