Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.

Geoff has also appeared frequently on Question Time and can be regularly seen putting the cat amongst the pigeons on UK political debate shows. You may have also heard him on his own Radio 4 comedy special or popping up on The Now Show.
He’s written for shows ranging from Have I Got News For You and C4’s Alternative Election to Judge Romesh, Roast Battle and JFL’s Katherine Ryan Stand up show.
Geoff won an operational medal for his five tours performing to British troops in Afghanistan.

Tiff Stevenson tour dates
A relative newcomer who has the material and confidence of a full time comic. He has a lovely style in his delivery - pacy, upbeat and infectious - that makes the audience warm to him. Set pieces such as his Bollywood and Nollywood reconstruction capitalise on that energy well.
