Desiree Burch

Desiree Burch appearing at this event

Raised in L.A., developed artistically in NY and currently resides in London. Her brash and energetic comedy style has been seen on NBC and E4, and made her the winner of the 2015 Funny Women Stage Award for stand-up. As a writer and performer, she makes raw and gutsy work. Her critically-acclaimed solo show 52 Man Pickup has toured internationally and her solo piece Tar Baby won a 2015 Fringe First for new writing at the Edinburgh International Festival Fringe. In 2015, Desiree Burch, “a larger than life New Yorker… who brought the roof down” (–The Independent), won the Funny Women stage award for stand-up comedy. On screen, Desiree has been featured on E4s World’s Greatest Bodyshockers and NBC’s Before the Morning After. Huffington Post has listed her as one of their Favorite Female Comedians. Live comedy credits include Spank, Angel Comedy, Greg Shapiro Presents, Shaggers, Right Now! with Carolyn Castiglia, Wyatt Cenac’s Night Train, and The Big C Comedy Gala in Edinburgh.

Patrick Monahan

Patrick Monahan appearing at this event

Winner of ITV's Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesbrough comic is a rising star on the comedy circuit. Full of an insatiable lust for life, his exuberant comedy greets the audience like a sex-starved spaniel would greet a trouser leg. In 2012 he took part in Let’s Dance for Sports Relief on BBC, won Best Newcomer at the Loaded LAFTA Awards and Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award for his hit show ‘Hug Me I Feel Good’. He played the role of the dastardly Captain Hook in ‘The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan’ at the Worthing Pavilion from December 2016 to early Jan 2017. A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd...!) 'High energy and conviction, his material is great; he's going to go far' (The Sunday Times) 'Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen' (Daily Mail) 'Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous' (Three Weeks) 'The same mix of control and on-stage charisma as a young Alan Davies' (The Herald) 'Monahan is a supremely engaging performer, adored by his audiences and capable of some terrific comedy' (The Scotsman). Patrick Monahan featured in Ents24's top hardest-working comedians list in 2018, 2017 and 2016.

Colin Leggo

Colin Leggo became an amputee, making full use of his surname Leggo. He now presents an hour of gloriously silly, life affirming comedy exploring how losing a leg needn't stop you standing up.
