A laid back, silly and utterly charismatic comedian. His shows combine surreal tales with cleverly crafted songs. Steve has a gift for creating immersive performances from acute observations. 'Absolutely stormed it' (Daily Mail)..

Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet. Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation. 'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (www.Chortle.co.uk) 'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny) 'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke) 'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).

A Gloucester man born and bred, who has been appearing in the area since the early '90s. He performs extensively in the South West and Midlands and runs his own comedy club, A Shed Load Of Laughs, as well as hosting The Laughter Fountain and The Ridge. Described as a ‘bit of a latecomer to the comedy world’, Nik Hill is making up for lost time with a bizarre and diverse range of subject matter, sprinkled with a little self-deprecating humour.
