The self-styled 'German Comedy Ambassador in London', Henning Wehn is a regular guest on the British comedy television programme 'FAQ U' and has appeared on the BBC Radio 5 Live radio show 'Fighting Talk ', where he is 'in it, to win it', as well as two appearances on Radio 4's 'The Unbelievable Truth'. Wehn's act plays upon the prevailing post-war stereotype of Germans; a large part of his routine is based around comprehensively analyzing and explaining his punchlines and jokes in the smallest detail. 'A diplomatic master class' (The Scotsman) 'Brought the audience to its knees' (The Daily Telegraph) 'Marvellous' (The Guardian).

'Skinhead, intellectual, and specialist compere, Roger Monkhouse employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience' (Glee) 'His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind' (The Guardian) 'Pulls punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air... Saucy - and uncompromisingly so - sometimes topical, sometimes punny, sometimes clever, sometimes daft... There is, in short, something in this varied comedy menu for every taste... A gifted natural... One of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit' (Chortle) '... one of the most experienced acts in the business. His deadpan style and quick wit make him one of the best acts out there, and he is a regular fixture at top venues all over the country, as well as performing extensively throughout the rest of the world' (Funhouse Comedy).

Nige (Keith Carter)
Failed singer/musician and doomed to a life of temping, Keith Carter is a professional character comedian, actor and writer. The two highlights of his showbiz career are having his one and only single played by John Peel and accidentally knocking George Martin into an ice sculpture whilst drunk. Carter is proficient on guitar, harmonica and piano and can’t believe he is getting away with not having a proper job. He is currently waiting for someone to tap him on the shoulder to tell him it’s all over. ‘A character comedian of rare skill.’ (The Guardian).
