Josie Long

Josie Long appearing at this event

Claiming her first BBC Comedy Award by the age of 17, Josie returned to performing after finishing University, notably at the Edinburgh Fringe, where she carried on winning awards for 'Kindness and Exuberance' (Best Newcomer) and later in 2007/8 for 'Trying Is Good'. She regularly writes for The Guardian and has appeared on The Island (Channel 4), The Superhuman’s Show (Channel 4), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Dara O’Briain’s Go 8 Bit. The Telegraph have described her as 'one of the most exciting female comics around'. Josie's humour is warm, optimistic and endearing, filled with rambling daft tales and all the things she likes in the world and which cheer her up. 'An original and unflagging spirit, oozing enthusiasm and intellect… Long builds delightful comedy worlds' (The Times) 'An absolute delight' (Time Out) 'An original and unflagging spirit... A passion for ideas and creativity... this is a lovely show' (The Guardian).

Bilal Zafar

Bilal Zafar appearing at this event

East London lad with an instantly amenable onstage demeanour, Bilal's material is a mix of the topical, the anecdotal and the mildly bizarre, doused in a liberal smattering of inventive imagery. Bilal won Edinburgh Comedy Awards New Act Of The Year 2016 and in 2015 he was the runner up at the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year competition. “Witty and absorbing…highly entertaining. I look forward to whatever Zafar cooks up next” (Dominic Maxwell, The Times). “Endearing, relaxed and naturally funny…hilarious” (Emily Phillips, EdFest Mag).
