Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
As seen as on Live At The Apollo, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, 8/10 Cats and Have I Got News For You, Shappi Khorsandi is an Iranian female stand-up comic who established herself on the London circuit back in the early 2000's. Feisty, flirty and effortlessly funny, she handles every subject with razor sharp wit. She is also the best-selling author of A Beginners Guide to Acting English.
'Makes live comedy thrilling' (Evening Standard)
'Shappi is an endearing presence and possesses a charming self-awareness that ensures consistent laughter from start to finish' (Huffington Post)
'Seriously funny and surprisingly filthy' (The New Statesman).

Guildford's own Holly Walsh has many a string to her bow, being a finalist in 2006's So You Think You're Funny? and Funny Women contests, as well as presenting for CBBC. A brilliant purveyor of one-line gags and witty puns.
'She's gifted with snappy wit and crackling talent' (The Guardian)
'She peppers her set with callbacks and clever asides and has easy charm' (The Independent)
'Holly Walsh really impressed... excellent sets and endeared herself through
some assured banter with crowds who really took to her' (British Comedy Guide)
'A talent for smart comic writing and the ability to keep an audience rapt' (The Observer)
'Her steady stream of witty and astute cultural observations belie her dorkiness from the first' (Chortle).

Tiffany Stevenson is an actress and stand up comic based in London. She sometimes does magic and has appeared in Footballer's Wives and The Office
amongst other things.
Finalist 'Show Me The Funny', winner Edinburgh Festival 'Spirit of the Fringe Award'.
'Hilarious observations and beautifully written. A touching call to arms for 30 somethings' (The Metro)
'Mouthy, cynical and sexually frank, she left us wanting more' (The Guardian)
'She extracts comedy gold' (Evening Standard).

Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes - Campus, Live At The Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week among others - as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent)
'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).

Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).
