Andy Zaltzman delivers his clued-up political comedy with surreal similes and often punchlines of pure silliness and has become an Edinburgh Festival staple. He writes a regular cricket blog for Cricinfo and co-presents The Bugle, a weekly satirical podcast for TimesOnline with John Oliver.
'A purveyor of subtle but excellent political satire' (Julian Hall, The Independent)
'... a masterful comedian, running through a variety of original material with ease and intelligence… his blend of intellect and comic timing make him a must-see at the Fringe this year' (Katy King, Three Weeks)
'Probably the best satirical comic we’ve produced in the last two decades. Intelligent, biting and silly' (Time Out)
'Political comedy at its best' (Sunday Times).
Andy Zaltzman tour dates
Winner of the London Comedy Festival 2001 and star of Eve Ensler's hit show, The Vagina Monologues. Shazia is lifting the veil on the world of Muslim comedy.
She is well-known for her appearances on BBC's Have I Got News For You, Beautiful People, Muslim Driving School, and The Now Show and Last Comic Standing on NBC.
A practising Muslim, Shazia is known for her deadpan delivery on her observations of her religious world. She works internationally, recently completing a six month tour of England and the United States and has appeared on BBC’s Have I Got News For You, NBC’s Last Comic Standing and CBS’s 60 Minutes.
The only female Muslim stand-up comedian, she has come a long way since starting out in Birmingham in 2000 working as a science teacher and driving up and down the country for a booking for as little as £10.
'Wonderfully life enhancing... Her laconic one-liners represent something quite unique in modern comedy' (The Guardian).
'No one can resist - the room erupts' (Elle Magazine).
'Clever, ground-breaking and very funny' (Evening Standard)
'Had the place in stitches' (Independent)
'The Lenny Bruce of female stand-up' (Metro).
Shazia Mirza tour dates
Perrier Award nominee and Hackney Empire winner, Luke Toulson has been a guest on BBC Radio 4 and 5 Live, and written for comics appearing on Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week.
'Rock solid comedy' (Chortle)
'An explosion of good-natured self-deprecation and exasperated observations...' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Toulson is clearly a gifted comic' (The Sunday Times)
'... he is the kind of comedian who should share the spotlight with the more
established stars' (The Stage).
Luke Toulson tour dates
A London-based Jewish comedian who usually gives great value for money by doing a double show of his solo work. Ivor Dembina runs the Hampstead Comedy Club which he founded in 1994.
'Acclaimed Jewish comedian Ivor Dembina' (The Guardian)
'The success of the performance was down to Dembina's delivery, each quick fire gag delivered with the stereotypical panache natural to this veteran of the Jewish comedy scene. I would urge you to go and see what is an excellent show' (http://www.BroadwayBaby.com).
