Described as the 'Leonard Cohen of comedy', Andrew Lawrence is the master of his game. As seen on BBC1's 'Michael Mcintyre's Roadshow' and Channel 4's 'Best of The Brighton Comedy Festival', Andrew is also a double 'If' comedy award nominee.
'... a hard act to follow' (Chortle)
'Anyone who gives this spikily inventive performer the time of day will realise they're in the presence of an A-list talent' (The Guardian)
'Few people have caught the irritated, misanthropic mood of the moment better than this supreme misfit; the only wonder is that it's taking Lawrence so long to become a national institution' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Lawrence rips the cynical heart from his chest and wears it defiantly on his sleeve' (Metro)
'Powerful, sad, angry, true stuff' (The Scotsman)
'... you owe it to yourself to see him' (The Daily Mirror)
'This show is a must see without a doubt' (Edinburgh Reporter).

Edward Aczel began performing stand-up comedy in 2005 at the age of 38. By the end of that year he was the runner-up in both the prestigious BBC New Comedy Awards and in Jimmy Carr's Comedy Idol (which was filmed for the extras on Jimmy Carr's 2005 live DVD).
He is now a regular headliner on the comedy circuit and by 2014 had performed six solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival.
'One of the strangest, and finest, hours of live comedy I'd ever seen' (Zadie Smith, The New Yorker)
'Perhaps Britain's greatest living anti-comedian' (The Guardian)
'Genius anti-comic Aczel is a superb pleasure to watch, and very much a cult in the making' (Time Out).

'Inspired' (The Independent).
Gabby Best tour dates
Matt can be found performing stand up at various gigs around the UK and is 'broadly considered to be a fairly funny guy'.
'Sets the bar high for a relatively new act, with a fluid gag driven set, delivered with astute timing' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Made no attempt to explain where the rest of the cast were, simply claiming they were dead' (Three Weeks).
Matt Ewins tour dates
Former comedy reviewer Fern Brady first tried stand-up after the magazine she worked for suggested she write an article where she 'faked it' as a comedian. She enjoyed it so much that one year on, she embarked on it as a career.
She quit her day job working with male ex convicts after Stewart Lee plucked her from obscurity and put her on The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central). Since then she has performed stand up on a number of TV shows including 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular (BBC3), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and The One Show (BBC1).
Based in London, she has had two sold out critically acclaimed runs at the Fringe with her solo shows “People Are Idiots” (2015) and “Male Comedienne” (2016).
'A great comic sensibility, with moments of sparkling verve' (The Guardian)
'Crackles with fire, has beautiful timing, perfectly pitched delivery and great gags to boot... has the air about her of a woman going places' (The Scotsman).
