Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Australian-born and now London-based, Bec has gained a cult following in Australia, the UK and Ireland thanks to her award-winning solo shows. She has a talent for incorporating arts and crafts into her stand-up routines, creating a unique and unforgettable comedy style that she calls “paper-puppetry”. Her one-liners regularly feature in “best joke” lists by “reputable” sources like The Telegraph, Dave, The Guardian, The Independent, Daily Record and Buzzfeed, which isn’t surprising, as she is the creator of the UK’s only pun-based comedy night, Pun Run. ‘Bec Hill and her side-splittingly funny stand-up routine are a joy to behold… you’ll fall in love with Bec’s excitable attitude and her witty optimism. Definitely a name to remember with a smile’ (Three Weeks Edinburgh). ‘Multi-talented with brilliant observational material’ (The Stage).

Explosive comedian from London who is very tall and very silly, with his homages to lesser known fruit and vegetables and snippets of subverted classic hits. He is also an award-winning animator and often uses his talents to great effect in his comedy performances, performing as the Big Howard Little Howard Show for kids. '... one of the highlights of the show... the embodiment of variety in the 21st Century' (The Stage) ' Delivering his material with appeal and modesty he keeps the audiences under his charm...' (Funhouse Comedy).

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.

Welsh comic wizard described as surreal, absurd, intelligent and somehow strangely attractive, but then he would say that, wouldn't he?! His 2001 and 2002 Edinburgh shows received rave reviews, catapulting him into the upper echelons of the comedy circuit. 'Liberates the lunatic side to our personalities - brilliantly!' (Time Out) 'Stands out like a droll giant in a comedy land of trite dwarfs' (The Independent) 'Absolutely Hilarious!' (HTV & Wales on Sunday).
