Michael Legge tour dates
Stephen Carlin began his stand-up career in 2002 and soon became a permanent fixture on the comedy circuit, supporting Stewart Lee and Stephen Merchant on tour, also appearing in Stewart Lee's 10 Best Stand-ups In the World Ever. Stephen has appeared in Comedy Cuts [ITV] and Edinburgh & Beyond [Paramount Comedy], and has written for Radio shows such as Laura Solon Talking and Not Talking [BBC Radio 4].
'Sharp, slightly offbeat, mainly very funny' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'The whimsy and relaxed on-stage demeanour were a winner instantly... (Carlin) excelled in pedantry, married to exceptional use of language' (Leamington Observer)
'... if this man isn't a household name in five years' time, the world is even more lacking in justice than we could have feared' (The Scotsman)
'... a delightfully off beat act who expertly applies twisted, convoluted logic to common-or-garden observations to produce genuinely original material... a definite tip for the top' (Chortle).

Actor, writer and comedian Barry Castagnola has firmly established himself as an accomplished comic performer. He has been performing stand up round the country and internationally for over four years. He started off by blagging his way on to the stage at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles and has never looked back.
'His blokey charm and willingness to make himself look ridiculous carry him through the trickiest of subject matter' (Edfest)
'Lucid urban storyteller' (Chortle).
Barry Castagnola tour dates
Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the Stand-up Show on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on Live At The Comedy Store for Comedy Central, Live At Jongleurs and The World Stands Up for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, Brain Candy. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of TV Meltdown for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including the legendary Loose Ends on Radio 4.
'An unassuming comic genius' (Metro)
'Brilliant natural clown' (The Daily Telegraph)
'... van der Borgh can reel off cracking gags and compete with the best freestylers such as Ross Noble' (Evening Standard)
'An excellent stand-up with intelligence and wit' (The Guardian)
Addy Van Der Borgh tour dates
The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre are the comedy double act that has to be seen to be believed. Absolutely stupidly hilarious!
Taking on anything from James Bond to Star Wars, these guys bring you a brand new show full of songs, sketches, socks and violence.
The stars of BBC 3's Comedy Shuffle and Upstaged, and MTV's Best Show Ever, and the darlings of YouTube bring you songs, sketches, socks and violence. Including an entire Shakespeare play in its entirety (slightly abridged)!
'The unparalleled pinnacle of comedy puppetry' (Venue)
'Had every single audience member... laughing until they cried' (Edinburgh Evening News, Aug 2012)
'One of the truly great comic inventions of our time' (Theatre Bath).
The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre tour dates
Winner of ITV's Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesborough comic is a rising star on the comedy circuit. Full of an insatiable lust for life, his exuberant comedy greets the audience like a sex-starved spaniel would greet a trouser leg.
A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd...!)
'High energy and conviction, his material is great; he's going to go far' (The Sunday Times)
'Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen' (Daily Mail)
'Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous' (Three Weeks)
'The same mix of control and on-stage charisma as a young Alan Davies' (The Herald)
'Monahan is a supremely engaging performer, adored by his audiences and capable of some terrific comedy' (The Scotsman).
