Josh Howie tour dates
Graham Norton's writer and warm-up artiste, co-founder of the 'Hampstead Clinic' comedy club. She is regular performer at the Comedy Store and on The Stand Up Show. Jo is a regular guest on both Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You. Other TV appearances include The John Bishop Show, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saturday Night Live, The Stand Up Show.
Dubbed 'funniest woman in Britain', she lives up to the title with razor-sharp wit, acerbic observations and scandalous one-liners, all excellently written and impeccably delivered.
'Cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue...Sharp-witted, urban comedy that goes down a treat. Like a sociology textbook, but with jokes' (The Times).
'Incapable of doing a bad show, so sharp is her tongue and so in tandem is it with her mischievous mind' (The Scotsman).
'Feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy... one of the finest female comics' (The Observer).
Jo Caulfield tour dates
One of the most exciting and distinctive talents to emerge on the comedy circuit in recent years. He is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4 as a regular on The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive. 'Absolutely brilliant' according to Caroline Aherne, and he has justified the tag, regularly selling out his shows in Edinburgh and racking up the television and radio credits. Plus, he dresses smartly and uses no bad language whatsoever...!
Simon Evans tour dates
With an assured stage presence and considered material that comes from a fresh perspective, he already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond his years. He is known for his 'Hate Thy Neighbour' documentary series about the rise of the far right on Viceland TV.
His natural confidence and charm allow him to tread gracefully across more sensitive topics leaving many of his contemporaries behind.
He has won the Comedy Café New act of the Year Competition and the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year award in 2014.
Big things await this natural talent.
Jamali Maddix tour dates
Ranked amongst the top ten stand-ups in Britain by The Independent, Ian Stone is one of the most talented topical acts and comperes in the country. Edgy and provocative, with an easy-going manner and self-depreciating style, Ian is at great ease bantering with an audience. He's a member of the Comedy Store's critically acclaimed 'Cutting Edge' team.
Ian also received a nomination in 2012 for the Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival Awards. He has performed all over the world including Comedy Festivals in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, South Africa, Holland, France, Ireland and Germany. He’s entertained the troops in Kuwait, Bosnia,Kosovo, Cyprus and Afghanistan. He was the first British stand-up to perform in Moscow and the first performer to appear for The Comedy Store in Mumbai.
'Seriously funny' (The Guardian).
'One of the top comedians in the country' (The Independent).
