An English comedian known for his hyperactive brand of humour. Since winning Channel Four's prestigious 'So You Think You're Funny' Competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and National circuit, known and loved for his hugely lively, loveable, honest, frank and seriously funny stand up comedy.

Markus Birdman tour dates
Carey Marx's wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.
Formerly in double-act 'Kez and Jodi', a comedy illusion act. Live wire, Canadian comedy magician. Winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival 2009, he blends dark humour with a mischievous, gleeful delivery,

'Excellent' (The Guardian)
'He is a masterful stylist, gracefully switching from surrealism to sardonic irony' (Skinny Fest)

'A darkly comic Quentin Tarantino' (Chortle)
'Opium for the people' (Broadway Baby)
'supremely crafted comedy' (The List).
Carey Marx tour dates
Gary Delaney is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. The high quantity of stand out gags leaves the audience struggling to remember them all. He regularly plays all the big clubs including The Comedy Store, Highlight, Jongleurs, Komedia, Glee, Rawhide, The Frog and Bucket, Hyena, Baby Blue, The Stand, Comedy Café, Lee Hurst's Backyard, Banana Cabaret and headlines at clubs throughout the UK.
Gary is a regular guest on Mock The Week and has also recently appeared on Dave's 'One Night Stand', Comedy Central's 'Comedy Blue' and on Channel 4's 'Robert's Web' as well as Radio 4's 'Loose Ends' and Radio 2's 'Russell Kane's Whistle-Stop Tour'. His debut show 'Purist' was a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, selling out every night and receiving many four and five star reviews.
'Gary Delaney has more quality jokes in this hour than many comics have in their entire careers… Quite brilliant' (The Scotsman).
'I laughed and I laughed and I laughed! A master craftsman' (The Times)
'Taut, brilliant one-liners. Delaney was worth the price of admission alone' (Chortle)
'... Razor sharp one-liners' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Quickfire material of the very highest quality is pretty much guaranteed from the
fast-thinking Delaney, a master of the deadpan one-liner... Expect a cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns' (The Guardian).
Gary Delaney tour dates
Alfie is an original and distinctive comedian with his niche area as a serving police sergeant. He came slightly later to comedy and brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from his eighteen years on the beat, where a keen sense of humour has been the key to his success and survival!
Born and raised on a council estate in Sheffield he was an apprentice in the steelworks before joining the Police. Early on in Alfie's career he finished runner up in a national stand-up competition and was well and truly hooked. He subsequently served a whole new apprenticeship, honing his craft at comedy clubs all over the country. Alfie has an observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing.
'He's a very funny man' (Rhod Gilbert)
'Genuinely brilliantly funny' (David Mitchell)
'Very funny... a large dash of gallows police humour' (The Daily Telegraph)
'He walks the comedy beat with confidence' (Metro)
'Gloriously, life-enhancingly funny' (The Scotsman)
'His is a higher form of wit. delivered with lashings of good spirits and an effective slither of self-deprecation' (Chortle)
'Lots of well-crafted jokes and a large dash of gallows police humour' (The Sunday Telegraph).
Alfie Moore tour dates
Writer, actor and character comedian whose creations include the hospital radio DJ Ivan Brackenbury and Ian D Montfort, a psychic from Sunderland.
'Intelligent, magical, fantastically original and funny enough to kill you from
asphyxiation' (The Magic Circle Magazine).
