Andrew's combination of sci-fi twists on real life, long hair and impeccable manners have led him being revered on the London comedy circuit. Activist, misanthrope and transvestite waxes comical about the decline of British industry.

of comedic brilliance' (Timeout)

'clever comedy for those who like their laughs original, off-kilter and cliché-free' (Three Weeks).
Andrew O'Neill tour dates
Winner: Best Debut Show – 2009 Leicester Comedy Festival.
John has quickly made his name as one of the most quick-witted, engaging comedians on the circuit. He's the latest to burst out of Bristol's hotbed of talent and he has stories to tell, banter to have and bombs to drop.
'Funnier than all of them, his self-deprecation and Olympic ad-libbing would have you skipping happily down even the darkest alley' (Venue)
'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)

'One of the most naturally gifted comedians I've seen' (The Daily Telegraph).
John Robins tour dates
His wholly original social commentary, observations and anecdotes are his trade mark. He brings intelligent material as well as simple immature jokes to any room. He enjoys gigging all over the country to any audience, whether he is MC or doing a set.
'Hilarious... takes this year's Fringe by the scruff of the neck' (Metro)
'Destined for greatness... he's got charm, anecdotes, callbacks and a worrying
father' (The Sunday Times)
'One of the UK's best young observationalists' (The Guardian)
'Charming and good looking... Martin looks to me like a late-stage prototype of the
genuine article' (Chortle).
Chris Martin tour dates
Explosive comedian from London who is very tall and very silly, with his homages to lesser known fruit and vegetables and snippets of subverted classic hits.
He is also an award-winning animator and often uses his talents to great effect in his comedy performances, performing as the Big Howard Little Howard Show for kids.
'... one of the highlights of the show... the embodiment of variety in
the 21st Century' (The Stage)
' Delivering his material with appeal and modesty he keeps the audiences under his charm...' (Funhouse Comedy).
Howard Read tour dates
Benny Boot has been performing on the UK stand-up comedy circuit for 6 years. He is considered by many comedians as a wonderful stand-up artist to watch. Boot delivers his jokes in a unique style on a variety of strange topics. His engaging persona and material keeps the laughter rolling through the entire show and is guaranteed to bring any audience undone.
'He's got a keen instinct for the joke, an imaginative turn of phrase and an ability to find an offbeat angle to whatever he chooses to talk about' (Chortle)
'... an arsenal of consistently brilliant gags' (The Guardian).
Benny Boot tour dates
This versatile comedy veteran delivers a highly improvised set which can cover a vast range of subjects and material. As seen on Mock The Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Now Show, The News Quiz and Loose Ends.
