After cutting his teeth performing on the pavements of the world and winning the Time Out Street Performer Of The Year Award 1987, he transferred his skills to stand-up. He toured mainly in the USA and Canada, including a support slot for Bob Hope, before returning to his native London in 1994. Over five years on the circuit in this country have seen him rise to one of the most widely respected performers doing the rounds. 'He always gets people laughing through his accomplished stand-up skills, evident in his scalpel-sharp ad-libs and outstanding one-liners' (Chortle) 'Aside from his ability to sustain a single narrative for a full hour, with thought-provoking originality and biting humour, Vincent also uses video to deliver one of the most disarming punch lines you're ever likely to see on the Fringe' (The Scotsman) 'An improvising comedy genius' (The Guardian) 'He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business' (The Times) 'Ferociously funny' (The Sunday Times) 'Honesty and truth (and funny lines) are comedy essentials and fortunately Vincent has come more than prepared... this corpulent comic is an utterly welcoming presence, lacing his blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension' (Metro).

Originally hailing from Amsterdam and having trained in Canada gives Micky uncompromising Dutch courage combined with a Canadian sensibility and charm. She is one of most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years. As a result she has been nominated for Chortle Best newcomer 2018. A bedrock of surgically sharp writing combined with a cool and confident delivery make her an exceptional comedian. Her material moves quickly from devastating honesty, to brutal whimsy, to on-point social observations. She already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond her years.
