Guardian sports reporter turned ace observationalist comedian, Josh is one of the most in demand and highly regarded comedians in the UK for both his live stand-up and TV work. His most recent TV credits include three series of Channel 4' highly acclaimed 'The Last Leg' and appearances on 'Stand Up For The Week', the BBC's 'Mock The Week' and 'Live At The Apollo'.
He is also a comedian turned DJ on XFM from which his podcast regularly appears in the top 10 on the iTunes podcast chart. The Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee goes from strength to strength, with two sell-out UK tours and two sell-out Edinburgh runs already behind him.
'...Josh Widdicombe has the ability to find the sparkle in the mundane that puts him in line to be the next Sean Lock' - The Guardian
Josh Widdicombe tour dates
Star of Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week, BBC1's Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntryre's Comedy Roadshow, and Dave's Argumental, Seann is a charming and
charismatic natural born observational storyteller.
With confidence and material that belies his tender years Seann has already supported Stephen K Amos on his national tour and appeared on many TV shows. Charming, accessible and laugh out loud funny.
'See him now, before the stadium tour' (The Sunday Times)
'Slick, funny observational comedy' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk).
Seann Walsh tour dates
One of the most talented and popular comedians to have recently emerged, Paul is inspired by comedians such as Richard Prior, George Carlin and Sam Kinison. Constantly challenging and relentlessly inventive, his comedy fuels an eclectic set punctuated by impressive feats of mimicry and verbal dexterity. Paul's highly charged dry observational humour taps into the multicultural diversity of contemporary Britain.
'One of the finest Asian comics around... A great take on multicultural Britain' (Time Out)
'Dangerous comic genius' (Eastern Eye)
'Revives distant memories of Richard Pryor at his relentless best' (The Times).
Paul Chowdhry tour dates
Romesh burst onto the comedy circuit in 2010, gigging regularly at top venues all over the country. As well as turning in storming turns on a regular basis, he has also found time to reach the Latitude New Act Final 2010, The So You Think You're Funny? Final 2010 as well as coming runner up in The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2010.
He has forged a fearsome reputation with a set that combines cutting one liners with an acerbic take on the world around him.
'Extraordinarily hilarious' (Three Weeks)
'Plenty to enjoy in his ultra sardonic set' (Chortle)
'his ability to write bitingly fresh gags marks him out from the crowd... Ranganathan's punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers' (The Guardian).
Romesh Ranganathan tour dates
One of the most exciting and distinctive talents to emerge on the comedy circuit in recent years. He is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4 as a regular on The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive. 'Absolutely brilliant' according to Caroline Aherne, and he has justified the tag, regularly selling out his shows in Edinburgh and racking up the television and radio credits. Plus, he dresses smartly and uses no bad language whatsoever...!
Simon Evans tour dates
The winner of the BBC New Comedian Awards 2011.
'Angela Barnes is a brilliant new comic with an excellent on stage persona. Her acidic tone of delivery and deftly crafted, punchy material make for a very funny set' (Trevor Lock)
'... brilliantly funny' (Sarah Millican)
'... warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes... She's just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic... Like all the best comics, she manages to articulate a singular perspective while making it seem like a universal truth. And then she put jokes in it. Harder than it looks' (The Guardian)
'Angela Barnes is the best mainstream female comedian I've seen since Sarah Millican... I can't be any clearer than that can I?' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'A beautifully paced performance that was aided by the consistent quality of her jokes, many of which showed a great skill with self-deprecation' (Chortle).
