Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
English comedian, writer and actor, best known for starring in the mystery series Jonathan Creek and the panel show QI.
Alan began his career in stand-up comedy in 1988 and was runner-up in the City Limits New Act of the Year contest 1989. He was named Time Out Best Young Comic in 1991 and made his network television debut on Tonight with Jonathan Ross in 1992. In 1993 he was nominated for a British Comedy Award as Best Newcomer. Since then, Alan has gone on to appear on TV and on the stage, winning Best Actor in a Drama at the Monte Carlo Television Awards for his 2001 role of Bob in Russel T Davies’ Bob And Rose.
After returning from Australia following a successful tour of QI Live, Alan went back to his stand-up roots in 2012 with 'Life Is Pain', and is back on the road in 2013 with his highly anticipated follow up show, 'Little Victories'.

'Alan Davies has lost none of his appeal... heart-tugging and deeply funny' (Big Issue)
'One of the best stand-up comics out there... packed with deft silliness and shrewd observation' (The Guardian).

The master of observational comedy, Ed's many TV appearances over the years have included hosting Live At The Apollo and being a regular panellist on Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You, as well as various other new comedy shows including Miranda Harts Christmas Unwrapped. A sucker for a quiz, particular highlights for Ed have been taking part in Celebrity Mastermind and being a contestant on Celebrity Pointless. Ed is also a regular contributor to comedy and music shows on both BBC Radio 2 and 4 and 6 Music.
“Byrne is at the top of his game” (Sunday Telegraph)

'It is rare for a comic to merit the word 'masterful' but in this case it is no overstatement' (The Scotsman)

Leicester New Comedian Of The Year 2015 nominee. As heard on BBC Radio 4 (The Now Show, Newsjack, Fresh from the Fringe) and BBC Radio 1Xtra, and as seen on Channel 4, BBC Three and Sky Arts.
Lolly Adefope sets herself apart from others by delivering her sets through the guise of a hapless comedienne called Gemma. Her alter ego is a somewhat self-indulgent 23-year-old from Preston, portrayed as she stumbles her way through her first live stand-up session and botches gags about offices, taxis and superpowers along the way.
'Promising newcomer' (The Independent)
'Tipped by everyone in the comedy industry' (Laugh Out London).

Fast establishing herself on the live circuit supporting Alan Carr, Josh Widdicombe, Kevin Bridges and Romesh Ranganathan all over the country. 2017 saw her take her solo show ‘Common’ on a sell out tour around the UK.

'She balances affection with an acute eye for the ridiculous to bring you a stand up set of well delivered, increasingly funny anecdotes... definitely one to watch' (Three Weeks)
'Kiri was by far the funniest and most quick witted, one to look out for in the future' (Leicester Mercury).
