Custard Comedy Comberton: Markus Birdman, Simon Clayton, Sarah Johnson, Jacob Hawley, Laura Lexx
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Markus is an original and highly talented stand up. He has been described by the BBC as “the all-round package; witty, controversial, hip, topical, silly. A master of timing and physical comedy." His relationship with the Beeb goes back to his performance at the Edinburgh Festival in 2001 as part of Screaming Blue Murder's Big Value Show and as a finalist in the televised BBC New Comedy Awards 2001. He was nominated for the NZ Comedy Guild Award as Best International Artist 2014.

'... already on his way up...' (Time Out)
'Second to none' (Adelaide Advertiser)

Steve Bennett, Chortle
Sarah Johnson tour dates
Paramount Funniest Student Runner Up 2009 and Chortle Student Comedy Awards Finalist 2009, Laura Lexx is a uniquely gleeful performer with an easy, chatty style that covers all things from the West Country to the aging process of socks.
Performing mainly in London and the South, Lexx is a chirpy addition to any line up.
'... the positive and personable Laura Lexx, with her delightfully funny take on
things. Happy to discuss anything with the audience her distinctive style is both cheeky and charming' (Funhouse Comedy)
