Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Noisy, manic and in-your-face comedian from Australia. This foul-mouthed antipodean is known as a masterly exponent of his art, intelligent and hilarious, railing against bigotry without preaching and taking the audience to the edge of their belief systems with his full on comedy routine. Brendon has appeared on The 11 O'clock Show and The Stand Up Show.
'The most jaw-droppingly awkward, painful, yet ultimately rewarding piece of stand-up we've ever seen' (Time Out)
Brendon Burns tour dates
Comedienne (BBC1, Radio 4) and writer (credits include Stand Up For The Week, Twit of the Year, Channel 4, and Mock the Week, BBC2).

'Born to perform' (List)
'Very talented' (Time Out)
'Urban sharpster' (Stage).
Tania Edwards tour dates
Paul Pirie began his stand-up career after giving up acting to pursue the funny man that lies within, quickly establishing himself on the Scottish comedy circuit before lauching onto the UK comedy scene and even appearing in Ikea's April 2011 comedy based TV advert.
It should be pointed out that when Paul started stand-up in 2004 he was living with his Gran, having given away the keys to his flat in a pub quiz. Since this time Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his burgeoning skill as a stand-up with Paul emerging as one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.
'Fizzing with energy and spewing out one-liners like he had just scoffed a dodgy prawn, Pirie is a man we will be seeing more of' (Daily Record).
Paul Pirie tour dates
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).
