Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Milton Jones? You know, the weird bloke with the shirts from Mock The Week! Comedian, writer and actor, whose stand-up is full of surrealism, nonsense and sharp wit. His style of humour is based on mostly one-liners involving puns. Jones has had various shows on BBC Radio 4, at the beginning of which he is sometimes announced as 'Britain's funniest Milton'.
'The wild-haired Jones has raised wordplay to the level of fine art' (Radio Times)
'He's fast, absurd and very funny' (Radio Times)
'No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride' (The Guardian)
'The best one-line merchant in British Comedy' (Chortle).
'Absurdist, one-line masterpieces' (The Times).
Milton Jones was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2015.

'To see Tony Law is to inhale deep breaths of comedy oxygen' (The Herald)
'An ever-changing, hard-to-contain, force of nature' (The Guardian)

Tony Law tour dates
Irish born, London residing, Aisling's name is pronounced Ash-ling Bee. She was named Irish Tatler's Entertainment Woman of the Year 2013 and winner of So You Think You're Funny 2013, the first woman to do so in 20 years, and only the second woman to do so in the competition's 25 year history. Expect hilarious hip-hop moves and wonderfully silly stories.
Aisling Bea tour dates
Comedian, compere and playwright. This grumpy old man per excellence presents the BBC Radio 4 show 'Excess Baggage' and has written four plays including 'An Evening With Gary Lineker' and 'Live Bed Show'.
His stand-up topics range from vigorous yodelling to mediaeval literature via death by drink. His delivery is relaxed and sardonic, but his shows are a surprising, dark and witty treat.
He's also one of the many 'Grumpy Old Men' that appear on BBC 2's hit show.
'The funniest and most honest comic of his generation' (The List).
