Smart-suited comedian from North London who has appeared on Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats to name but a few.
The past few years have been exceptional for Michael, performing sold-out shows in arenas all over the world. His 2012 tour, Showtime, was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world that year, playing to over 640,000 people including a
record-breaking ten night residency at London’s O2 Arena, matching the pop-superstar Rihanna’s 2011 record.
Michael has also released three best-selling DVDs: 2008’s Live and Laughing, was the biggest selling UK debut stand-up DVD of its time, Hello Wembley, which in 2009 became the fastest-selling UK stand-up DVD of all time - a record it still holds, and 2012’s Showtime, which beat its competitors to the Christmas Number One spot.

'The man is quite simply top-to-toe hilarious' (The Daily Telegraph).

Alan Carr is one of Britain's most successful and treasured comedians. His unique humour and effortless stage presence have earned him a catalogue of awards. His hit Channel 4 chat show Alan Carr: Chatty Man is firmly established as one of the nation's favourite entertainment TV shows.
Alan's unique warm hospitality and infectious personality have won audiences hearts, ensuring he is the perfect chat show host as he invites his A-list guests to a tipple of their choice, to let their hair down (which they often do), and most importantly have fun.
'A comedian who owns the space he is working in so much, he could put a flag up' (The Independent)
'An absolute natural on stage… a born storyteller, sheer entertainment' (London Evening Standard).

Although he's a man of few smiles, Jack Dee's deadpan, dry humour has made him one of Britain's favourite veteran comedians. Starting his career as a stand-up comic, he first came to the small screen in the 1990s as the face of the John Smith's Bitter advertising campaign and soon became known as 'The Midget with the Widget'. By 1995, he had appeared in countless TV shows and gained an impressive array of awards. In 2001, he was the highlight of Celebrity Big Brother digging secret escape tunnels while the others were in the bath. Much to his surprise, the nation showed their adoration voting him the winner of the series. With often sell-out gigs, a chance to see this talented misery onstage definitely shouldn't be missed.
Jack Dee tour dates
Uncompromising and head-on comic who will deal with issues that are sexist or sizeist with a razor sharp wit.
'Britain's funniest female comedian in years.'
Jo Brand tour dates

It was back in the late '90s when, alongside Julian Barratt, Noel brought to life Howard Moon and Vince Noir in the upstairs room of a North London pub. The Mighty Boosh made their Edinburgh Festival debut in 1998 winning the coveted Perrier Award for Best Newcomer.
Despite his huge success as one half of The Mighty Boosh, 'the funniest comedy double act in Britain' (NME), Noel has continually worked on his solo projects. In January 2012 the first series of his kaleidoscopic character comedy
show Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy aired on E4. Half live action, half animated, the series introduced us to some brand new characters including, among others, New York cop Sergeant Raymond Boombox, modern day Don Quixote Fantasy Man and Roy Circles, an anthropomorphic chocolate finger with shell shock.
Noel's additional television credits include The IT Crowd and Nathan Barley as
well as appearances in Doll And Em, How Not to Live Your Life, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace and Surrealissimo: The Trial of Salvador Dali. He also co-presented Comic Relief Does Top Of The Pops alongside Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates and has appeared as guest team captain on The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year. Having first appeared as a panellist on the show, Noel has also been a team captain on the last four series of the long running music show, Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
