Charming and charismatic, a natural motormouth, Brighton’s Seann Walsh is the most frighteningly precocious talent to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in ages. Within two years of his first comedy performance in 2007, Seann became the winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Shortly after, other accolades included Chortle Best Breakthrough Act Nominee 2010 and Chortle Best Compere Nominee 2011. "Unquestionably the best observational comic of his generation" – The Guardian "…Sharp, creative observational comedy from a precocious newcomer. See him now, before the stadium tour…" – Sunday Times Seann Walsh was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.

Kelly Convey is an “in-your-face and reassuringly confident” (Marissa Burgess – Chortle) comedian who is not one to mince her words when giving audiences an insight into what modern women really think. While her outspoken and forward-thinking musings may go against the grain, “there’s a winning authenticity to her material” (Steve Bennett – Chortle) that is refreshing and relatable. This authenticity has led to a whole host of accolades and acknowledgments in her whirlwind rise through the comedy scene. Voted by The Metro as “1 of 9 Hilarious Women to Look Out for in 2017”, Kelly Convey is, no doubt, one to watch.
