Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Winner in 2010. 'Deane's well timed deadpan delivery was on cue every time, he'll definitely be one to watch' (Medway News) 'A particularly nice line in understated pay-offs' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard) 'Well written gags, well executed one liners' (Chortle) '... he's able to generate a stream of seriously good gags, the kind of quick, sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines that'll always keep a comic in work and an audience richly entertained' (The Guardian) 'It's just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings... His trick is to make you think you're watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines' (The Independent).

Troy is a matinee idol born in the wrong era. Homeschooled by his elderly mother for the most part of his life, he has recently emerged blinking into a modern day dystopian present with the naivety of a newborn fawn. 'Undeniably funny' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Intelligent and effective satire ... a character of real comic integrity' **** (BroadwayBaby.com).

Reginald D Hunter
Originally from the Deep South of the USA, and now one of the North West's favourite comics. Reg is one of the good guys of comedy. A hypnotic, smooth-talking, very human comedian who hits your funny bone with tales of love, hate, death and all that is in between. Reginald has been in the UK for just under two decades and in that time he has become one of the UK Comedy industry’s best-known performers for his distinctive take on subjects including race and sexuality. His work can be brutally honest and is often considered to be controversial but it is always meticulously thought out and he has never been afraid to face challenging issues head on even when the focus is on his own principles or beliefs. Reg has had a hugely successful career and has become a well-known face of primetime television shows such as Live At The Apollo, and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You. 'Searing social commentary, deep south wisdom and juicy punchlines' (The Independent) 'One of the comedy scene's leading players and a figure of rare authority' (The Daily Telegraph). “Stand-up comedy’s coolest customer” (Telegraph). “Reginald D Hunter joins the top rank of stand-up comedians working today…A comedian going for broke flying in the face of received opinion in a way that is simply exhilarating...this is comedy of a rare scope” (Times).

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).
