Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Since November 2008 Danny Ward has been travelling Great Britain, often in his T reg Polo, sometimes on the coach, entertaining audiences with his unique style of observational humour.
A self proclaimed tataholic, Danny Ward is on a mission to spread the lesson he refuses to learn – when you try and do things on the cheap, it ends up costing you more.
He was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year in 2013 and has gigged extensively across the UK including comedy venues such as The Glee Clubs, Jongleurs, The Highlight, Just The Tonic, Baby Blue, Komedia, the Bearcat and Downstairs At The Kings Head.
He has also performed in Northern Ireland at the Belfast Empire, as well as in Germany, Tenerife, Maastricht and Croatia.
'Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered... This is top quality stand up...' (Three Weeks)
'Danny Ward clicked with the capacity crowd immediately and his brilliantly timed... approach was bolstered by some really tight, strong material' (Bournmouth Echo)?.

Gary Delaney is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. The high quantity of stand out gags leaves the audience struggling to remember them all. He regularly plays all the big clubs including The Comedy Store, Highlight, Jongleurs, Komedia, Glee, Rawhide, The Frog and Bucket, Hyena, Baby Blue, The Stand, Comedy Café, Lee Hurst's Backyard, Banana Cabaret and headlines at clubs throughout the UK.
Gary is a regular guest on Mock The Week and has also recently appeared on Dave's 'One Night Stand', Comedy Central's 'Comedy Blue' and on Channel 4's 'Robert's Web' as well as Radio 4's 'Loose Ends' and Radio 2's 'Russell Kane's Whistle-Stop Tour'. His debut show 'Purist' was a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, selling out every night and receiving many four and five star reviews.
'Gary Delaney has more quality jokes in this hour than many comics have in their entire careers… Quite brilliant' (The Scotsman).
'I laughed and I laughed and I laughed! A master craftsman' (The Times)
'Taut, brilliant one-liners. Delaney was worth the price of admission alone' (Chortle)
'... Razor sharp one-liners' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Quickfire material of the very highest quality is pretty much guaranteed from the
fast-thinking Delaney, a master of the deadpan one-liner... Expect a cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns' (The Guardian).
