Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
A laid back, silly and utterly charismatic comedian. His shows combine surreal tales with cleverly crafted songs. Steve has a gift for creating immersive performances from acute observations.
'Absolutely stormed it' (Daily Mail)..

Laughter Lounge Award winner Harriet is described by The Guardian as 'definitely one to watch'.
'She’s got funny bones' (Kevin Bridges)
'Exploring the thin line between eccentric and the mental’ is perfect comedy ground for Harriet Dyer, who seems to have lived her entire life on that interface. Her instinctively funny stand-up is packed full of weird and wonderful incidents from her strange life so far – yet however outlandish the tales, they all have an absolute ring of truth' (Steve Bennett, Chortle at the Leicester Comedy Festival)
'A bundle of whimsical hilarity… a breath of fresh air... will have you in stitches' (Broadway Baby)
'Dyer made the audience feel at home and managed to wow the crowd… Loveable and delightful' (Three Weeks).

Despite being fairly new to the Montreal scene, psychedelic/garage madman, Paul Jacobs. has been busy, putting out 5 full length albums and few 7’’ and playing everything from big festivals such as M For Montreal to DIY venues.
In doing so, he has shared the stage with bands including Pypy, The Demon’s Claws, The Gooch Palms, Les Marinellis and Guantanamo Baywatch to name a few. Keeping true to his DIY ethos, he did video for his lastest singles all his artworks.
Though he has been setting stages on fire as a one-man army for as long as he can remember, he is now performing as a 4 piece which renders his catchy melodic garage even more incendiary.

Clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that's slammed it's claw in a coffin lid.
And not the merest hint of profanity.
The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface.
Jongleurs / Metro Stand And Deliver Award winner and former BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up, he is a regular contributor to Radio 2's The Arthur Smith Lectures.
As seen on The Stand Up Show and Phoenix Nights.
'Dark quips and relentlessly witty audience-goading ad-libbing from a compelling host' (City Life)
'Hilarious ad-libs and wicked one-liners from an infectiously funny performer (The List).
