One of the most sought-after acts in the country. Perrier Award Nominee and Polygram Award winner for best stand-up at the Edinburgh Festival. Undoubtedly one of Britain's sharpest comic brains - all this and he doesn't swear.
'He's been one of my favourite stand-ups for about ten years (Ricky Gervais)
'In the premier league of comedy' (The Independent)
'He makes me laugh out loud, I can't wait to see him live' (Sir Ian McKellen)

Adam Bloom tour dates
A stand up comedian working in the UK and abroad.
A popular comic/DJ on MTV, Ben has also performed on the BBC's Stand Up Show and They Think It's All Over.
His routines are a breath of fresh air, and highly original - check out his Shakespearian Porn routine...
'Killer gags' (The Scotsman)
'well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics' (Chortle)
'A master of the craft... an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see'
'One of the comedy circuits best improvisers' (The Daily Mirror).
Ben Norris tour dates
Popular circuit comedian and regular compere for several comedy nights. He is probably best known for his Comedy Store improvisations, but after starting his professional career as a support act for Peter Kay he was soon selling out his own one-man shows, and things look like they are only going to get better for Derker's most famous son.
On TV Mick has starred in BBC1`s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as Comedy Blue and The Comedy Store (both Comedy Central). He made his big screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Looking For Eric – a hit feature film at the Cannes film festival where it was nominated for the prestigious Palm D’Or. A prolific comic, he is a writer on John Bishop’s Britain (BBC1) and has helped make the show a ratings success.
'See him or regret it' (John Bishop)
'Absolute legend, incredibly funny' (Jason Manford)
'Performs with style and conviction... highly enjoyable' (Chortle).
Mick Ferry tour dates
Apologetic Eton and Oxford alumnus, Ivo started stand-up in 2009 at the age of 18, and 8 months later became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award for new acts at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Now a regular fixture in the clubs and theatres of the UK circuit, his gauche charm and crafty, self-aware wit has proved a hit with audiences of all ages, and led to appearances on multiple TV and radio shows including Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, As Yet Untitled, Live From the BBC and Fighting Talk.
Ivo Graham tour dates
He has many TV credits to his name including The Mash Report (BBC2), Question Time (BBC2) and Comedy Bigmouths (C5). He delivers an eclectic mix of dark material, impressions and politics with a confident smile and optimism. His shrewd standpoints on life make his anecdotes extremely captivating and leave his audiences wanting more.
'Master of anecdotal storytelling' (The Stage)
'Geoff Norcott is a comedian with a big future ahead of him' (Daily Mirror).
