2009 So You Think You're Funny finalist and 2013 Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year runner-up. Rising star Mark Simmons is a consummate one-liner comic. If you love Milton Jones you are likely to adore Mark Simmons. Big hit on the UK circuit and supports some of the bigger names on tour, including Seann Walsh who he co-hosts a movie podcast with. Very clever writing combined with a quirky stage persona. 'To put it simply: if you like Tim Vine, you'll like Mark Simmons, who shares the same love of a tight, silly pun and crushes an admirable quantity into his solo debut, without sacrificing quality' (Steve Bennett, Chortle) 'Clever quips and elegant jokes@ (Standard).

Explosive comedian from London who is very tall and very silly, with his homages to lesser known fruit and vegetables and snippets of subverted classic hits. He is also an award-winning animator and often uses his talents to great effect in his comedy performances, performing as the Big Howard Little Howard Show for kids. '... one of the highlights of the show... the embodiment of variety in the 21st Century' (The Stage) ' Delivering his material with appeal and modesty he keeps the audiences under his charm...' (Funhouse Comedy).

Deadpan comedian who has been likened to Liam Gallagher 'with wit. And a vocabulary'. 'His laid back delivery almost insinuates a disinterest in the proceedings, but his timing is pin sharp, his control is deft and his hair is immaculate' (The Scotsman) 'Mike Newall's style is quiet, thoughtful and casual. The material is excellently timed, deceptively clever and very funny' (City Life).

He has been performing stand up round the country and internationally for over four years.

'His blokey charm and willingness to make himself look ridiculous carry him through the trickiest of subject matter' (Edfest) 'Lucid urban storyteller' (Chortle).
