UK-based Norwegian comedian 'with a more-than-agreeable line in weird observations' (Chortle).
Daniel is a Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer winner and star of Vic Reeves' and Bob Mortimer's House of Fools (BBC 2)
'Exquisitely crafted gags and out-and-out surrealism, at its best like a fusion of Emo Philips and Vic and Bob' (The Guardian)
'You knew he was funny before he even opened his mouth' (Scotsman)
'No doubt that Simonsen has proven himself a talent to keep an eye on' (Time Out)
'An outstanding comedian' (Fringe Guru).
Daniel Simonsen tour dates
Comedian and star Of Ricky Gervais' Cemetery Junction. The alter-ego of David Earl (or Kev from Channel 4's 'Derek'), Brian Gittins is the owner of a roadside café somewhere off the A32. A couple of the café's regulars have said he's 'quite funny', so he's been attempting to make it in the world of comedy.
'... very funny, inventive and engaging comedy show' (The Daily Telegraph).
Brian Gittins tour dates
'A manic fantasist who gets bountiful belly laughs from his articulate diatribes against the mundane' - Derbyshire Times.
Barnaby J Thompson tour dates
Alfie Brown's first stage credit was when he was 15 in Harry Hill's stage show Wild Horses. The son of Dead Ringers star Jan Ravens, he started performing stand-up at the age of 18 in August 2006. He has appeared on BBC2's The Grumpy Guide To Teenagers.
'Quite simply the future of British stand-up' (Brian Donaldson, The List)
'Brown's is one of the boldest new voices I've encountered... mapping a route to a
different class of humour' (Brian Logan, The Guardian)
'Calls himself an observational comic' (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman)
'A true delight, his delivery was natural and his jokes were sharp' (Such Small Portions)
'Incredibly interesting new comedy voice' (Time Out),
Alfie Brown tour dates
London-based comedian and Winner of the Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award, Best Newcomer 2013.
'Tremendous originality... a jumpy and unpredictable raconteur... a shot of nervous energy, an elastic band about to snap... I can't see him waiting in reserve for long' (Broadyway Baby)
'... brilliantly bonkers' (Time Out)
'Now THIS is how you do absurd comedy' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk).
John Kearns tour dates
A comedian, radio producer and writer. He was born in Hong Kong, and moved to Australia aged 12, before settling in the UK at 19. He has worked as a researcher for QI, and co-created the Radio 4 panel show The Museum of Curiosity.
Dan Schreiber tour dates
It is the infantile, oddly macabre quality of Lee's stage shows that makes them terribly watchable. A striking figure: skinny and slight and akin to a camp Yorkshire Johnny Rotten in both manner and dress sense. He performs his shows with equal amounts of amiability and gusto and with a healthy dollop of the unearthly thrown in. Incredibly funny, odd and beguiling to watch.
Ross Lee tour dates
Renaissance man. Impresario. Bit of a tw*t. Just some of the words Harry has used to describe himself in this bio. During his time in the comedy industry he has published and edited the UK's longest running nationally distributed comedy magazine The Fix, been the comedy editor for the Guardian Guide, directed several sellout critically acclaimed shows and what at this stage seems like the high point of his career appeared as a panelist on Loaded TV's flagship book show 'Lads Lit'.
He currently oversees online comedy channel Raybot and hosts and produces his hugely popular residency Shambles in London.
'Hilarious' (Justin Long, Star of Die Hard 4.0 and Dodgeball)
'Harry is a train wreck that's already happened' (Rich Fulcher, Mighty Boosh)
'Self-deprecating, self-sabotaging, deliberate shambles of a showman. But weirdly, it works' (The List).
Harry Deansway tour dates
