The Best In Stand Up - Five World Class Comedians: Ian Moore, Geoff Norcott, Dane J Baptiste, Scott Bennett, Glenn Wool
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
A thinly veiled contempt for all forms of physical exertion and an open adoration of all things Mod, Ian was recently voted by fellow comedians as 'Man most likely to run amok with a firearm'. Fortunately this hasn't stopped him achieving great success on the London and National circuits where he has spent the last two years supporting the likes of Lee Evans, Jack Dee and Mark Lamarr.
'One of the country's top comedians' (The Guardian).

Geoff Norcott is known for his unique brand of provocative stand-up. Whatever the contentious subject – he’ll be honest and blunt without being a d**k. Mostly. As seen on The Mash Report, Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week.
Geoff has also appeared frequently on Question Time and can be regularly seen putting the cat amongst the pigeons on UK political debate shows. You may have also heard him on his own Radio 4 comedy special or popping up on The Now Show.
He’s written for shows ranging from Have I Got News For You and C4’s Alternative Election to Judge Romesh, Roast Battle and JFL’s Katherine Ryan Stand up show.
Geoff won an operational medal for his five tours performing to British troops in Afghanistan.
‘He’s a class act with a mature, sharp take on modern politics’ Sunday Times
‘A Right laugh’ Guardian
‘Happily, he is very funny’ Telegraph
Geoff Norcott tour dates
After growing up in '80s South-East London and surviving a post-Bush, post-racial, post-Thatcher, post-Twilight Society, Dane realised that it was a moral obligation to chronicle and in some places parody the human experience and contemporary western culture.
Having written and starred in his own sitcom for the BBC (Sunny D) and performed a triumphant run at the Edinburgh Festival, Dane Baptiste is fast becoming regarded as definitely one to watch as his career takes off.
As seen on Live At The Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Chris Ramsey's Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Tonight at the London Palladium (ITV1), Live from the BBC (BBC Two), Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular (BBC3) and Live at The Comedy Store (Comedy Central).

Dane Baptiste tour dates
Stylishly shirted, Yorkshire-born Scott Bennett delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living. His sharply-written routines, drawn from real-life experiences have been delighting audiences across the country; except in Yorkshire, where they are deeply suspicious of his shirts.
Likeable, with a warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic. English Comedian of the Year Runner Up, Comedy Cellar New Act of the Year and Old Speckled Hen Comedian of the Year.
'A generous helping of wonderfully witty comic observations about life's little quirks, relationships and human behaviour. Served by a Yorkshireman with relentless enthusiasm and boundless energy' (http://www.bbc.co.uk)
'Naturally hilarious, the highlight of the evening' (Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe 2013)
'A star of the future' (Huddersfield Examiner)
'This loveable rising star enthrals his audiences with his warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic' (Funhouse Comedy).

Inventive Canadian stand-up Wool certainly cuts a dash on stage with his heavy black eyeliner, long leather coat and distinctive cowboy hat. Already an established comic in the USA with his laid back, confident and edgy style and stunning improvisation. No subject too sensitive, no issue too extreme. He tackles a wide range of subjects from religious fundamentalism to current world politics and does it in such a way that you hardly notice that that is what you are listening to.
'Wincingly funny, it's enough to buckle a bull moose' (Melbourne Age)
'Effortlessly funny wit an affability that other comics can only dream of. You have to go see Glenn Wool' (The Guardian)
'Edgy, imaginative, funny and original... Tipped for greatness' (The Daily Telegraph).
