Carey Marx's wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.
Formerly in double-act 'Kez and Jodi', a comedy illusion act. Live wire, Canadian comedy magician. Winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival 2009, he blends dark humour with a mischievous, gleeful delivery,

'Hilariously demented' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'Excellent' (The Guardian)
'He is a masterful stylist, gracefully switching from surrealism to sardonic irony' (Skinny Fest)

'A darkly comic Quentin Tarantino' (Chortle)
'Opium for the people' (Broadway Baby)
'supremely crafted comedy' (The List).

David Mills tour dates
Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer, whose friendly and open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most sought after acts in UK comedy today.
His sharp, warm and sassy take on life tunes into our day-to-day lives with his razor sharp wit and intelligence as he tackles the art of conversation. With so much social media have we forgotten how to just sit and engage with each other on a human level? Are we still able to express ourselves in more than 140 characters?
As well as his live stand up, Stephen is also high in demand for his TV and radio work with regular appearances on ITV's Weekend with Aled Jones and Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side. He has also appeared on ITV2's Safeword and CelebAbility, ITVBe's Kate's Wardrobe Secrets, W's Celebrity Advice Bureau & Channel 5’s It's Not Me, It's You.
‘He has charisma, he has his own style, he has a wicked line in material and the ability to go off-piste with crowd work that is achingly funny’ (One 4 Review).
'Refreshing to watch, a comic who is so beautifully comfortable in his self that the show he has created is rich with positivity' (The New Current, 2014).

Coventry-born Stella Graham is a naturally funny stand-up comedian and writer, with great gags and killer banter. Ballsy, intelligent and inappropriate, no subject is off limits. Charming, and not entirely ladylike, all punchlines connect with a resounding thud.
Stella first hit the stage in New Zealand before returning home to the UK.
Stella has worked on and written for TV and radio.
'If you're a TV executive, drop what you're doing and go see her now' (The Skinny)
'Fun and original... everything a good comedian should be: self-assured, likeable and, crucially, funny' (Broadway Baby).
Stella Graham tour dates
Kevin's friendly face and manic energy are proving successful with all types of audience when he has compered and performed sets at gigs. His mission to entertain the world has only just begun. A charming young chap with cheek, humour, wit and a smooth delivery that would do any midwife proud. Lots of life, lots of gags and quite a few kids to his name!!
