Milton Jones? You know, the weird bloke with the shirts from Mock The Week! Comedian, writer and actor, whose stand-up is full of surrealism, nonsense and sharp wit. His style of humour is based on mostly one-liners involving puns. Jones has had various shows on BBC Radio 4, at the beginning of which he is sometimes announced as 'Britain's funniest Milton'. 'The wild-haired Jones has raised wordplay to the level of fine art' (Radio Times) 'He's fast, absurd and very funny' (Radio Times) 'No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride' (The Guardian) 'The best one-line merchant in British Comedy' (Chortle). 'Absurdist, one-line masterpieces' (The Times). Milton Jones was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2015.

Once described as a Filipina Sarah Silverman... She intermingles her refreshingly funny songs with a dry wit ... Winner of the London Comedy Festival New Comedian Of The Year 2002 and the EMMA Best Comedian Award 2003. '... electrified the audience with her relaxed yet biting wit' (ThreeWeeks) 'Lina is a musical comic with a brilliant line in bawdy songs... storming set!' (Evening Standard) 'I have no doubt she will hold her own so easily that she'll have a hand free to hold someone else's too' (The Guardian) 'engaging, endearing and eye-opening' (Time Out) ''Fearless, provocative and very funny... wonderfully on-the-edge stuff... There isn't a comedy venue in the country that shouldn't be fighting for her' (The Scotsman) '... slickly done - the girl's got talent' (Chortle).

Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly observational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride. 'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks). ‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine). 'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle). 'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian). Nathan Caton was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2015.
