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).

Paddy has been tour support for Rhod Gilbert, Lucy Porter and Micky Flanagan.
He started Stand-Up in December 2001 only to be interrupted with a couple of comedies at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and a couple of surreal commercials in far off lands, before returning to his new found passion.
A naturally funny, warm comic who plays all the big (and small) clubs in the UK. He has also gigged in South Africa, Germany, Ireland, Croatia, Estonia, Malta, and lil' ol' Slovenia.
'... simply a scream' (The Daily Telegraph)
'... comedy the way it should be: a laugh-a-minute which leaves the audience wishing the show was just a little bit longer... gentle Irish lilt belies a mischievous sense of humour' (Fest).
'Excellent stand-up, Paddy Lennox, is laid-back and charismatic. Vastly entertaining. This show proves that the AAA stand-up comedians have great things ahead of them' (Three Weeks).

Ben started stand up comedy in 2008 and quickly established himself as one of the hardest working comedians in the country.
His likeable stage presence and sharp material has made him in demand as an act and compere up and down the country.
Open and honest in his material he has progressed onto paid 20s and is a solid compere for any club.
Ben has appeared at the Birmingham, Nottingham, Edinburgh and Leicester comedy festivals.
'... the quietly confident, appealing and quick-witted Ben Briggs. With his amazingly funny stories he takes his audience on a hilarious journey' (Funhouse Comedy).
