'Punchy, inventive, superb... undeniably brilliant' (The Times)
'What's remarkable about Lock is how he burnishes the dross of observational platitude into gold. A comic in peak form' (The Guardian).

Alan Carr is one of Britain's most successful and treasured comedians. His unique humour and effortless stage presence have earned him a catalogue of awards. His hit Channel 4 chat show Alan Carr: Chatty Man is firmly established as one of the nation's favourite entertainment TV shows.
Alan's unique warm hospitality and infectious personality have won audiences hearts, ensuring he is the perfect chat show host as he invites his A-list guests to a tipple of their choice, to let their hair down (which they often do), and most importantly have fun.
'A comedian who owns the space he is working in so much, he could put a flag up' (The Independent)
'An absolute natural on stage… a born storyteller, sheer entertainment' (London Evening Standard).
Alan Carr was named in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians of 2015.

Jo Brand tour dates
Although he's a man of few smiles, Jack Dee's deadpan, dry humour has made him one of Britain's favourite veteran comedians. Starting his career as a stand-up comic, he first came to the small screen in the 1990s as the face of the John Smith's Bitter advertising campaign and soon became known as 'The Midget with the Widget'. By 1995, he had appeared in countless TV shows and gained an impressive array of awards. In 2001, he was the highlight of Celebrity Big Brother digging secret escape tunnels while the others were in the bath. Much to his surprise, the nation showed their adoration voting him the winner of the series. With often sell-out gigs, a chance to see this talented misery onstage definitely shouldn't be missed.

One of Ireland's funniest comedians, who produces laughs like a magician produces rabbits from a hat.
With a reputation as a stand-up around the world, including an appearance at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, he originally made a name for himself in Ireland on the satirical panel show Don't Feed the Gondolas and then stepped into the mainstream limelight with the hit show It's A Family Affair.

One of Britain's freshest and most original comics, this British-born Iranian hams the accent and underlines the cliches before pulling the Persian rug from under the audience. With a career in comedy spanning across three decades, Omid Djalili's legendary performances on stage and screen have won him fans and plaudits the world over.
Renowned for his razor sharp wit, boundless energy and expertly crafted cultural observations, his original material continues to explore the diversity of modern Britain and he remains one of the most exciting entertainers on the circuit.
A firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival, Omid's stand-up awards include the Time Out Award for Best Stand Up and the EMMA Award. He's also been a nominee for a Perrier Award and the South Bank Award. Omid was also awarded a Best Actor award at the Turin Film Festival for his lead performance in The Infidel.
'To carve yourself out a career as the thinking person's Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both... Belly laughs with a subtle blend of mainstream gags and subversive twinkle' (The Sunday Times)
Omid Djalili was named in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2017.
