Featuring

Daniel Kitson

Daniel Kitson appearing at this event

A brilliantly quick comic mind coupled with scorching improvisation makes Daniel a regular at the top London clubs and on TV. Nominee for the Perrier Award 2001 and the winner in 2002. His hilarious, charming and filthy comedy is unafraid to be different and happily avoids the latest fashions and trends. A must see comedian.

Josie Long appearing at this event

Claiming her first BBC Comedy Award by the age of 17, Josie returned to performing after finishing University, notably at the Edinburgh Fringe, where she carried on winning awards for 'Kindness and Exuberance' (Best Newcomer) and later in 2007/8 for 'Trying Is Good'.

The Telegraph have described her as 'one of the most exciting female comics around'. Josie's humour is warm, optimistic and endearing, filled with rambling daft tales and all the things she likes in the world and which cheer her up. 'An original and unflagging spirit, oozing enthusiasm and intellect… Long builds delightful comedy worlds' (The Times) 'An absolute delight' (Time Out) 'An original and unflagging spirit... A passion for ideas and creativity... this is a lovely show' (The Guardian).

Lolly Adefope

Lolly Adefope appearing at this event

Leicester New Comedian Of The Year 2015 nominee. As heard on BBC Radio 4 (The Now Show, Newsjack, Fresh from the Fringe) and BBC Radio 1Xtra, and as seen on Channel 4, BBC Three and Sky Arts. Lolly Adefope sets herself apart from others by delivering her sets through the guise of a hapless comedienne called Gemma. Her alter ego is a somewhat self-indulgent 23-year-old from Preston, portrayed as she stumbles her way through her first live stand-up session and botches gags about offices, taxis and superpowers along the way. 'Promising newcomer' (The Independent) 'Tipped by everyone in the comedy industry' (Laugh Out London).
