Kevin Bridges, Glasgow's 'young comedy prodigy' (The Guardian) reveals his innermost thoughts on a variety of topics, from his home-land Scotland and beyond.
His unique brand of social commentary, astute observations and sharp one-liners have proved a hit with audiences, leading to an extraordinary few years for Kevin. Scotland’s biggest export has been dubbed as 'brilliant' by one of his comedy idols, Billy Connolly, and has had an astonishing rise to success. Selling out over 100 tour dates on his first ever UK solo tour in 2010, his 2012 tour, Kevin Bridges – The Story Continues… smashed box office records selling a staggering 45,000 tickets on the first day. He went on to sell out an incredible nine-show run at the Glasgow SECC Arena.
His epic 136-date tour culminated in a sell out run throughout Australia. The DVD of the same name made it to number 5 in the charts for Christmas that year.

John Bishop has had an incredible career. Within three years of his first ever comedy gig, he was playing to sold out arena audiences across the country and also released the fastest selling stand-up DVD in UK history.
A strong stage presence and life experience make him a comedian who is not afraid to take chances, and this is reflected in his status as one of the best comics in the country.

"Home is not only where Bishop’s heart clearly and endearingly is – it’s where his art is, too" Daily Telegraph

Romesh burst onto the comedy circuit in 2010, gigging regularly at top venues all over the country. As well as turning in storming turns on a regular basis, he has also found time to reach the Latitude New Act Final 2010, The So You Think You're Funny? Final 2010 as well as coming runner up in The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2010.
In 2015 Romesh starred in his own show called 'Asian Provocateur' (BBC Three) where he travelled to Sri Lanka to learn about his parents' country. In 2016 the second series 'Mum's American Dream' was commissioned.

Tommy's mastery of stand-up allows him to take risks other comedians dare not. Through hilarious story telling and a high energy, non- apologetic delivery he continually challenges his audience who can be confident they are in safe hands.
To see him live is a rare treat, as his stories unfold and themes are elaborated his performance is mesmerising and his lyrical way with words make you laugh harder than you'd ever believe possible.
'Intense and painfully funny storytelling' (Irish Times)
'When the bearded storyteller aimed for the funny bone he was imperious' (Evening Standard)
'... a sermon-like delivery halfway between home hearth and hellfire' (The Independent)
