Micky Bartlett is Northern Ireland's answer to Kevin Bridges and one of the funniest and most popular acts on the entertainment circuit.
Micky grew up in Lurgan, a town just outside of Belfast. Only ever wanting to be a comedian, he
tried his first open spot whilst in his final university year, studying for a BA in Drama and Theatre
Studies. One course examined comedians such as Billy Connolly, with the final assessment being a performance. This was all the push Micky needed to try stand-up as a career.
'Brilliant' (Culture NI)
'A natural stand up, full of punch and verve, with more than a touch of Billy Connolly' (Chortle).

Also a finalist in the Babycham Funny Women competition.
'Goes for the jugular. Quick wit, frank and engaging' (The Independent)
'A great comic who oozes personality' (Evening Standard)
'She may present herself as just one of the girls, but this young Londoner has clearly got the potential to really stand out' (The Scotsman).

'Rhys James is a comedian who began performing in 2009 in student competitions such as Comedy Central's Funniest Student in 2010, and Chortle's Student Comedy Award. He made his Edinburgh debut as a performer for The Pleasance Comedy Reserve in 2010, and again in 2012 as a performer in AAA- Stand Up. He has also written material for Russell Howard's Good News (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
He’s a super-sharp writer, with a ton of smart, intricately-written jokes and stories where you’re never more than a few seconds away from another punchline.
'Highly amusing' (The Stage).
Rhys James tour dates
A thinly veiled contempt for all forms of physical exertion and an open adoration of all things Mod, Ian was recently voted by fellow comedians as 'Man most likely to run amok with a firearm'. Fortunately this hasn't stopped him achieving great success on the London and National circuits where he has spent the last two years supporting the likes of Lee Evans, Jack Dee and Mark Lamarr.
'One of the country's top comedians' (The Guardian).
