Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Winner of the London Comedy Festival 2001 and star of Eve Ensler's hit show, The Vagina Monologues. Shazia is lifting the veil on the world of Muslim comedy.
She is well-known for her appearances on BBC's Have I Got News For You, Beautiful People, Muslim Driving School, The Now Show, Last Comic Standing on NBC and CBS’s 60 Minutes.
A practising Muslim, Shazia is known for her deadpan delivery on her observations of her religious world. She headlines all over the world and has performed solo tours in the US, Sweden, Denmark, France, India, Holland and Germany.
The only female Muslim stand-up comedian, she has come a long way since starting out in Birmingham in 2000 working as a science teacher and driving up and down the country for a booking for as little as £10.
'Wonderfully life enhancing... Her laconic one-liners represent something quite unique in modern comedy' (The Guardian).
'No one can resist - the room erupts' (Elle Magazine).
'Clever, ground-breaking and very funny' (Evening Standard)
'The Lenny Bruce of female stand-up' (Metro).
Shazia Mirza tour dates
This charismatic comic performs in major comedy clubs across the UK and Europe where she is in as much demand for her compere abilities as she is for her comedy routine.
'Far funnier and more inventive than anyone has the right to expect' (Evening News)
'A conversational style with humour so interwoven it seems effortless' (http://www.chortle.co.uk)
'Deliciously cruel... The best antidote to mewling rugrats... A performer the
audience could have watched all night' (The Herald)
'Outclassed her colleagues' (Evening News).
JoJo Sutherland tour dates
Since 2000, Allyson June Smith has been tickling Canada’s comedy scene from the moment she put down the chalk brush and picked up a mic. Playing to packed rooms has become like another day in the classroom for this former school teacher.
A multiple Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-Up. Allyson's credits include her own hour long Comedy Now special, appearances on CBC Radio’s hit show The Debaters, and the Winnipeg, Halifax and Just For Laughs Festivals, to name just a few.
After working her way across Canada, Allyson is now taking the UK by storm with her sassy blend of in-your-face stand-up and hilariously insightful comedy.
"Book her, see her, just do whatever you can to be near her; she’s gonna be a huge star!” Jason Manford
"Ultra likeable and versatile" Now Magazine, Toronto
"Wasn’t afraid to be shocking and explicit… hilarious" – **** Three Weeks
"Yet another hilarious Canadian with great hair" Stewart Francis
Allyson June Smith tour dates
Maureen is frank, fast, feisty, sharp and engaging – honest humour with attitude! She works as a stand up comedian and compere all around the UK and abroad and even gigs in German! As an experienced compere, Maureen is known for her quick wit and sharp audience interaction. In the UK she is one of the few comedians who works regularly on the mainstream and urban comedy circuits.
Her gigs have ranged from being the support act for the entire West End run of The Naked Magicians at the Trafalgar Studios as well as one of the warm up acts for Puppetry of the Penis to performing at the Barbican alongside Arthur Smith; supporting Shazia Mirza on tour; to being one of the acts at the Jamaica vs The World gigs at the Shepherds Bush Empire.
Maureen is also the resident MC of MY Comedy in London and Birmingham, and has worked as a contributor on BBC Radio and Sky News.
'Maureen Younger is more than compere, more than host, with a natural gift of the gab she's quick off the mark and doesn't miss a trick!' (http://www.gingerbeer.co.uk)
'If you have been lucky enough to see her perform you will be fully aware of just how funny and infectious this woman is.' (Time Out)
“one of the best MCs in the country” (Jo Enright)
'... whose punch lines also hit the mark in German' (Cologne Rundschau)
'Engaging and funny' (Three Weeks).
