Paramount Funniest Student Runner Up 2009 and Chortle Student Comedy Awards Finalist 2009, Laura Lexx is a uniquely gleeful performer with an easy, chatty style that covers all things from the West Country to the aging process of socks. Performing mainly in London and the South, Lexx is a chirpy addition to any line up. '... the positive and personable Laura Lexx, with her delightfully funny take on things. Happy to discuss anything with the audience her distinctive style is both cheeky and charming' (Funhouse Comedy) 'One of the most delightful performers you're ever likely to see' (GQ Magazine).

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' (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).

Veteran of Have I Got News For You, Saturday Live, Tarbuck Late and The Clive James Show, Sean Meo is a class act with some of the most intelligent and topical material around. Smooth, dry and cuttingly funny, Meo swapped a career as a professional snooker player for comedy and quickly established himself as a serious player at the comedy clubs too, securing himself Time Out's Comedian Of The Year Award. 'He can turn out intelligent material with a speed that many other comics can only gasp at' (Time Out) 'Slick, confident patter... can win over the most committed hecklers' (ES Magazine) 'Truly hilarious' (The Scotsman) 'Surreal, sexy... and very, very funny' (Evening Standard) 'The heavenly banter goes on and on the thinking man's comedian' (Deadpan) 'Deliciously sardonic' (The Guardian).

'Skinhead, intellectual, and specialist compere, Roger Monkhouse employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience' (Glee) 'His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind' (The Guardian) 'Pulls punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air... Saucy - and uncompromisingly so - sometimes topical, sometimes punny, sometimes clever, sometimes daft... There is, in short, something in this varied comedy menu for every taste... A gifted natural... One of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit' (Chortle) '... one of the most experienced acts in the business. His deadpan style and quick wit make him one of the best acts out there, and he is a regular fixture at top venues all over the country, as well as performing extensively throughout the rest of the world' (Funhouse Comedy).
