Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Jason Byrne's style is a free-wheeling, high energy brand of lunacy that takes the audience on a helter-skelter tour of his offbeat mind, helped along by his curious array of bizarre props. He has performed all over the world and has a ever-growing international following.
'The outright king of live comedy' (The Times).
Jason Byrne tour dates
'A comedian and magician. You might have seen him on the telly in Channel 4's 'Dirty Tricks', five's 'Monkey Magic' and Sky One's 'The Secret World of Magic'. He has travelled the world performing his own brand of anarchic magic and now you can catch him performing live.
'He's the bastard son of Jackass and Paul Daniels' (Metro)
'The new poster bot for British comedy magic' (The Daily Telegraph).
'Firman is responsible for making it socially acceptable to say that you like magic again' (The Guardian).
Pete Firman tour dates
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
"Truly special talent" Express & Star
"Had the audience howling" Dudley News
"Wayne Beese is one of the sharpest comperes I have had the pleasure of working with. Fantastic gags paired with split-second wit - an enviable combo" Joe Lycett
"One of the best MCs I have seen this year. Audiences frickin' love him" Tom Stade
Despite only picking up a microphone just over four years ago, Wayne Beese has quickly cemented a reputation as one of the most exciting up-and-coming comics in the Midlands. Born and bred in Dudley, he is demand both as an act, where he has performed at top comedy clubs such as the Glee in Birmingham and Manchester's Frog and Bucket, and increasingly as a host and compere.
Renowned for his banter, quick wit and improvisational skills, Wayne is resident MC at the award-winning Fitz of Laughter Comedy Club in Stourbridge and the popular Loffs At The Lamp in Dudley. He is also host of Live At The Civic at Brierley Hill Civic Hall, where he has introduced the likes of Ross Noble, Joe Lycett, Mark Watson, Doc Brown and Tom Stade to near-1,000 crowds in the last 12 months.
He has been nominated for a host of awards, including "Best MC" at last year's Midlands Comedy Awards, the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award and Midlands Comedian of the Year at the annual What's On awards.
