Improvised comedy at its best! This energetic fivesome transform audience suggestion into scenes, songs and scenarios in the blink of an eye, with hilarious consequences. With their perfect blend of ludicrous characters, barbed one liners, epic stories and musical extravagance, this team of slightly posh English blokes will have you in stitches with their fresh brand of off-the-cuff humour.
'What sets them apart is their great chemistry and genuine sense of joy they bring to the stage' (The List)
'Hilarious... A superior kind of chaos' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Comedy gold... Staggeringly well executed' (The Guardian)
'This is 21st century comedy at its very finest and funniest' (The Stage).

Whoever it was who decided that Americans don't have any sense of irony, they forgot to tell Dave Fulton. This wry Seattle wag is positively brimming over with ironic invective.
With his stringy beard, straggly long hair and rock 'n' roll black leather jacket, Fulton looks more like a refugee from a defunct British heavy metal band than an all-American stand-up... there's a salty flavour to his live club set that you'd scarcely describe as feminist. It's these contradictions that make Fulton so fascinating, and fun to watch, especially when he's riffing with British punters half a world away from home. (The Guide).
"It's only comics with something to say that cross the Atlantic." The Guardian
"Fulton is left as a sole crusader for US topical comedy." The List

Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).

One of the UK's top comperes, Windsor is a first class host with a natural charm and warmth, along with an enviable ability to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in any room.
By transferring his street experience of audience control and off-the-cuff humour, Windsor became a highly skilled and supremely professional comedy circuit compere almost overnight, with an extraordinary ability to warm up a show and keep it running at a high quality level. In addition, top quality material makes him a top-notch act.
'Windsor warmed-up and flushed out the hecklers... A skilled compere, Windsor delivers hot material with a rare skill' (The Stage)
'A very good act with excellent control of his audience' (Melbourne Age).
