Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer, whose friendly and open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most sought after acts in UK comedy today. His sharp, warm and sassy take on life tunes into our day-to-day lives with his razor sharp wit and intelligence as he tackles the art of conversation. With so much social media have we forgotten how to just sit and engage with each other on a human level? Are we still able to express ourselves in more than 140 characters? As well as his live stand up, Stephen is also high in demand for his TV and radio work with regular appearances on ITV's Weekend with Aled Jones and Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side. He has also appeared on ITV2's Safeword and CelebAbility, ITVBe's Kate's Wardrobe Secrets, W's Celebrity Advice Bureau & Channel 5’s It's Not Me, It's You. ‘He has charisma, he has his own style, he has a wicked line in material and the ability to go off-piste with crowd work that is achingly funny’ (One 4 Review). 'Refreshing to watch, a comic who is so beautifully comfortable in his self that the show he has created is rich with positivity' (The New Current, 2014). "When it comes to being funny, he's just got it." (ScotsGay) "Bailey is an absolute crowdpleaser, getting the room howling with laughter.” (Chortle) Stephen Bailey featured in Ents24's 20 Hardest Working Comedians of 2018 list.

Micky Bartlett is Northern Ireland's answer to Kevin Bridges and one of the funniest and most popular acts on the entertainment circuit. Micky grew up in Lurgan, a town just outside of Belfast. Only ever wanting to be a comedian, he tried his first open spot whilst in his final university year, studying for a BA in Drama and Theatre Studies. One course examined comedians such as Billy Connolly, with the final assessment being a performance. This was all the push Micky needed to try stand-up as a career. 'Brilliant' (Culture NI) 'A natural stand up, full of punch and verve, with more than a touch of Billy Connolly' (Chortle).

This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience. A finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more unusual. 'Hugely enjoyable... a ton of great stories... one to watch' (The Guardian) 'Razor sharp humour' (Metro) '... the appealing and perceptive Barry Dodds... captivates his audiences with his energy, spirit and tantalizing wit. His mix of surprisingly uncanny and irrepressibly cheeky material leaves them wanting for more' (Funhouse Comedy).
