The Best in Stand Up: Allyson June Smith, Geoff Norcott, Ian Coppinger, Steve Shanyaski, Mick Ferry
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Since 2000, Allyson June Smith has been tickling Canada’s comedy scene from the moment she put down the chalk brush and picked up a mic. Playing to packed rooms has become like another day in the classroom for this former school teacher.
A multiple Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-Up. Allyson's credits include her own hour long Comedy Now special, appearances on CBC Radio’s hit show The Debaters, and the Winnipeg, Halifax and Just For Laughs Festivals, to name just a few.
After working her way across Canada, Allyson is now taking the UK by storm with her sassy blend of in-your-face stand-up and hilariously insightful comedy.

"Ultra likeable and versatile" Now Magazine, Toronto
"Wasn’t afraid to be shocking and explicit… hilarious" – **** Three Weeks
"Yet another hilarious Canadian with great hair" Stewart Francis

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.

Geoff Norcott tour dates
A laid back, silly and utterly charismatic comedian. His shows combine surreal tales with cleverly crafted songs. Steve has a gift for creating immersive performances from acute observations.
'Absolutely stormed it' (Daily Mail)..
Steve Shanyaski 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.
