Featuring

Dane Baptiste

Dane Baptiste appearing at this event

After growing up in '80s South-East London and surviving a post-Bush, post-racial, post-Thatcher, post-Twilight Society, Dane realised that it was a moral obligation to chronicle and in some places parody the human experience and contemporary western culture. Star of hit podcasts Dane Baptiste Questions Everything and Quotas Full. As seen on Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Sunny D, Live at the Palladium…pretty much all over your TV screen. 'Brilliant' (Comedy Blogedy) 'Intelligent and genuinely hilarious' (Adam Bloom) 'Observational comedy at its finest' (The Independent) 'Baptiste is a comical genius' (www.EdFestMag.com) 'A thunderingly charismatic comic' (The Guardian).

Bethany Black

Bethany Black appearing at this event

Decidedly dark and deliciously different – a one way ticket to a world you never knew existed. Despite being 'unique', she's warm and chatty and has built a cult following for her brand of confessional comedy. 'Outstanding comic, laughs just keep on coming' (Channel 4).

Alistair Barrie

Alistair Barrie appearing at this event

Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet. Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation. 'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (www.Chortle.co.uk) 'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny) 'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke) 'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).
