An official Channel 4 survey of the 100 Greatest Stand-ups Ever placed Stewart Lee at number 41. His mother, whom he loves dearly, thinks Tom O'Connor the better comedian, having seen him do a joke about a sardine on a cruise ship ten years ago. And he isn't even in the top 100... 'The funniest, most cliche-free comedian on the circuit' (Ricky Gervais). 'Superlative... Remains one of the best stand-ups in the country' (Metro) 'Marvellously funny: mordant, thoughtful and crafted' (Observer) 'There's a wealth of evidence to suggest that in the last few years, Lee has gone completely mad... More skilful and playful than ever' (The Guardian) 'What is exhilarating is how many surprises he still throws in and how deft his jumps are from one tone to another….invigorating' (The Times) 'He is... the only comedian who can get away with deconstructing and critiquing his own routines as he goes along and not be repellent. He, and his material, are simply that good' (The Independent).

Winners at the inaugural London SketchFest for 'Best Sketch Show’, The Pin are a sketch act heavily tipped for future stardom by The Guardian. A couple of ex-Cambridge Footlighters, Alex Owen and Ben Ashenden create sharp and precise sketch comedy that tends to exceed expectations, giving them a reputation for 'nailing it'. 'The Pin are so good it might actually make you sick' (The Skinny) 'The precision was astounding. Faultless comic timing' (Three Weeks) 'The talented young double act who stole the show. This duo can go far' (The Daily Telegraph) 'A joy to watch. It's silly and whimsical, but ruthlessly comedic, such is the gag rate, and it's performed in a no-frills style that suggests they're super-confident in their writing' (www.Londonisfunny.com).

Comedian, compere and playwright. This grumpy old man per excellence presents the BBC Radio 4 show 'Excess Baggage' and has written four plays including 'An Evening With Gary Lineker' and 'Live Bed Show'. His stand-up topics range from vigorous yodelling to mediaeval literature via death by drink. His delivery is relaxed and sardonic, but his shows are a surprising, dark and witty treat. He's also one of the many 'Grumpy Old Men' that appear on BBC 2's hit show. 'The funniest and most honest comic of his generation' (The List).
