Highly-acclaimed Geordie stand-up comedian with numerous TV and radio credits to his name. An expert in the delivery of in-yer-face comedy, Dave's high-energy routine has left audiences around the globe gasping for breath and crying with laughter.
In 1989 Johns’ launched the Comedy Café on Westgate Road and invited the emerging Jack Dee and Jo Brand to appear, but realising they needed an MC stepped-up and did it himself. Finding he was rather good at it and pricing tickets at £3.75 including soup and a bun, the club became a city hot spot and Dave went on to host many more comedy stars including Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Harry Hill and nervous 14 year old lad called Ross Noble who went on to do rather well for himself.
Johns became a successful comedian, touring throughout the UK, a regular with the Comedy Store Players and appearing on much loved TV shows like Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of Ten Cats.
'He performs comedy's greatest magic, simply by being himself. A genuinely funny, engaging performer' (Glasgow Herald)
'He shifts from the sublime, to genius, to uproar in the blink of an eye - an extremely entertaining hour' (The Guardian).

Having endured various jobs like a waiter, shelf stacker, camera assistant and bouncer, Mickey Sharma started comedy in July 2009 and hasn't looked back. He works as a full time comic, travelling all over the UK and sometimes abroad.
Mickey has an act that brings that little twist of brilliance, biting comedy with a back beat and soul.

Manchester comedian and former regular contributor to XFM's breakfast show, Hayley Ellis has gone from strength to strength since she began performing in April 2009.
A regular MC at gigs around the country, Hayley's natural warmth and girl-next-door charm make her impossible to dislike, something which has become evident in her success in new act competitions throughout the UK.
'Small in stature yet big in energy, Ellis simply makes you laugh' (Giggle Beats)
'Warm and engaging, she's a refreshing, dissenting voice in the current female trend of twee, patchwork niceties' (http://www.viewsfromthegods.co.uk).

Gary Delaney is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. The high quantity of stand out gags leaves the audience struggling to remember them all. He regularly plays all the big clubs including The Comedy Store, Highlight, Jongleurs, Komedia, Glee, Rawhide, The Frog and Bucket, Hyena, Baby Blue, The Stand, Comedy Café, Lee Hurst's Backyard, Banana Cabaret and headlines at clubs throughout the UK.
Gary is a regular guest on Mock The Week and has also appeared on Dave's 'One Night Stand', Comedy Central's 'Comedy Blue' and on Channel 4's 'Robert's Web' as well as Radio 4's 'Loose Ends' and Radio 2's 'Russell Kane's Whistle-Stop Tour'. His debut show 'Purist' was a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, selling out every night and receiving many four and five star reviews.
'Gary Delaney has more quality jokes in this hour than many comics have in their entire careers… Quite brilliant' (The Scotsman).
'I laughed and I laughed and I laughed! A master craftsman' (The Times)
'Taut, brilliant one-liners. Delaney was worth the price of admission alone' (Chortle)
'... Razor sharp one-liners' (The Daily Telegraph)
