Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.

'Put simply, Nina Conti is a genius' (The Daily Mirror)
'A gem... funny, poignant, novel’ (The Guardian)

Eric is renowned for sweeping up audiences in the sheer energy of his performance. Delightfully weird with a keen eye for the absurd, his scatty character rips like a mini-hurricane.

'He makes it look so easy but this is a man with very funny bones. Definitely one to catch' (Daily Express)
'Superb banter that was clearly improvised. The sign of a good comedian' (Three Weeks)
'Lampaert is at ease with the performer-punter dynamic, displaying a cool comic ease that grounds the show. Natural comic flair and the knack for a decent hook, action-packed and rapid, exploring the less-traditional delivery style really works for him, and should prove enough comic bite to take him to the next level' (The Skinny)
'Quirky with an eye for the absurd and a couple of near-Izzardian flourishes… energy is such that it's almost osmotic' (The Stage).
