A former member of the Cambridge Footlights, he first came to the Fringe with the 2001 Edinburgh show Far Too Happy, which also starred Mark Watson and was nominated for the Perrier award for best newcomer. He also featured in Alex Horne's best-newcomer nominated Making Fish Laugh in 2003, and is part of the four-man sketch troupe Cowards. His solo Edinburgh debut came in 2004, with the tragic one-man comedy play Luke & Stella, which was made into a Radio 4 series called All Bar Luke. 'This is one art house form-buster who can really give you a good time' (Times) 'In any other sphere apart from comedy, we'd probably class this way of looking at the world as certifiable. Here it feels like genius' (The Daily Telegraph) 'As daring and innovative as it is ridiculously funny... He's a genius, plain and simple' (Time Out).

'Barbara Nice - ordinary housewife extraodinaire - has given up the domestic bliss of Tupperware and Poundstretcher shops for the unpredictability of the comedy circuit (her husband thinks she's at the bingo). No audience is too rowdy for her to handle - she's already raised five teenagers. She believes in bargains, Take a Break magazine, getting the most from life. Oh and Stage-diving! This well observed comedy character is so likeable that she draws even the most cynical of audiences and takes them along for a ride. 'A hybrid between Victoria Wood and Mrs Merton' - The Times.

Sindhu Vee is most likely the tallest Indian woman you’ll ever meet. The daughter of Indian parents, a London-based mother, and bearer of half a PhD, it is rumoured but unverified, that Sindhu practised the dark arts of investment banking before making her parents proud by becoming a stand-up. She devotes all the time she has left over from raising her 3 children (and a bizarrely gigantic labrador) to comedy and suffering facial peels. She was a finalist in this year’s BBC New Comedy Award. Stand-up Sindhu delves into the funny side of family dysfunction in her hilarious, award-winning sketches. She has taken London, Edinburgh and Mumbai by storm.

With a charming stage manner coupled with a deft, quick wit it's easy to see why Nottingham Comedy Festival named Welsh comic Kiri Pritchard-McLean their Breakout Act Of The Year. 'She balances affection with an acute eye for the ridiculous to bring you a stand up set of well delivered, increasingly funny anecdotes... definitely one to watch' (Three Weeks) 'Kiri was by far the funniest and most quick witted, one to look out for in the future' (Leicester Mercury). Kiri Pritchard-McLean featured in Ents24's 20 Hardest Working Comedians of 2018 list.

London-based Indie five-piece with songwriters Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan at the helm. "Ten Fé create a world of brooding tension, as Born To Run-esque guitar lines and vocal harmonies ricochet off each other. Expansive and cinematic.... willingly at odds with anything else on the current British musical horizon.... dark modern Americana" - XSNoize.com "We’re talking Springsteen up-tempo beats meets Verve strings meets Bono vocals. Think full, fluid harmonies and nostalgia-tinged, atmospheric synth and string melodies. Woah" - Wonderland Magazine
