The most original, odd, off-beat and hilarious alternative comic to arise this decade, John Kearns is an act who has forged his own raggedy path all the way to success.
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)

'Now THIS is how you do absurd comedy' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk).

Originally from Nottingham, Sarah Keyworth is becoming a regular on the London circuit and has supported Stewart Francis on tour. Her material is a mix of honest anecdotal storytelling about her Midlands upbringing, made surreal with the occasional addition of a silly observation. She delivers sharp lines with a cheeky smile and moments of sudden deadpan that leave the audience wanting more.
