Andy Askins' air of vulnerability and innocent child-like qualities mislead the crowd heightening the impact of his killer lines. With his guitar and his wickedly dry sense of humour he captivates everybody with an eclectic mix of offbeat comical songs and parodies. A talented musician with an appealing voice and cheeky magnetism, he never fails to leave his mark. Dark, dark humour and killer timing. 'An awful lot of charm. Although he looks mild-mannered and studious, he actually packs a wry, cheeky wit. There is, most definitely, something warmly alluring about him. His winning persona goes a long way...between the songs, the charming banter works well' (Chortle).

Sean honed his unique, storytelling style over 18 years. In 2000, his hard work and determination led to his receiving two prestigious Canadian Comedy Award nominations for 'Best Male Stand Up' and for his half hour 'Comic's Comedy Special' on CBC. Fuelled by the desire to play to a more international audience, Sean left Canada for the UK and, within the five years that he has resided in Britain, he has written and performed three highly successful Edinburgh Festival shows, receiving rare, five star reviews and one of only a few Best of Fest accolades.

Whether cheering up a distressed child, helping prevent a riot, or genuinely saving another human's actual life, Stuart Goldsmith is excellent in a crisis. When the chips aren't down however, it's a very different story... Exhilarating stand-up about embracing anxiety, conquering indecision, and getting tasered. 'Intriguing and invigorating' (The Scotsman) 'Marries pitch-perfect audience repartee with cleverly woven tales of the everyday' (The Independent) 'A fine jokesmith' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard) 'Probably one of the most likeable acts on the circuit' (Metro) 'A pitch-perfect performance, every nuance carefully calculated for maximum impact… a set rich with wordplay' (Chortle).

Sally-Anne is charming and popular, with a winning brand of autobiographical humour. She'll take you on a journey through her slightly eccentric world, including insights into the female psyche and her compulsion to send off spoof job applications. 'Small-time country posh life versus young lady breaking into the stand-up circuit. Fabulous!' (BBC London Live) 'It's easy to imagine Hayward at the 02 or guesting on QI. She is a crowd-pleaser and a straightforward observational comic, but so are most of Britain's favourite comedians today. Hayward is easily the equal of any of them' (The Skinny) 'Innate effusive likeability with straightforward but effective writing... a primetime act' (www.Chortle.co.uk) 'Exceptionally funny' (The Independent).

Kiwi comedian with a good reputation in the comedy world. He has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling, and a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that's thrown his way.

'One of the funniest men to pick up a microphone' (Time Out) 'Likeable, intelligent and full of unpredictable energy' (The Scotsman) 'Christmas is robustly funny, his delivery confident and his show not to be missed' (The List, Edinburgh).
