Watson won the Chortle award winner for innovation in 2005, when he was also nominated for best breakthrough act, and was nominated for best compere in 2007.

“Someone you could listen to forever on almost any subject" - British Comedy Guide. Miles uses his toff persona to great comedic effect, combining superbly patronising remarks with ungainly attempts to laddish. Perrier award nominated Miles discusses, rants about himself, you, domestic imprisonment, fatherhood, having to have opinions, hot drinks, the bloody government, bad balance, housing, ill health, the ageing process, navigation, other people's pants and, inevitably, a number of other things. Miles started performing stand up in Scotland in 2000 and the following year won both So You Think You’re Funny and The Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Since then Miles has performed all over the world with his exasperated style of humour, getting a laugh from all of those everyday things that you get a little irked about. His many TV credits include Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and BBC2 hit sitcom Rev, whilst on Radio 4 he's known as panel show host of It's Not What You Know along with appearances on Just a Minute, I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue and sitcom In And Out Of The Kitchen, which was nominated for a Writers' Guild Award and will transfer to BBC television in 2014. 'A master of metaphor, a seignior of similes' (Independent) 'His suitcase gags are cute, but this show goes from strength to strength as Jupp finds subjects worthy of his moral outrage' (The Guardian).

The bonafide Ayrshire born 'comedy fizz bomb' Billy Kirkwood is a must see with a massive cult following, surreal style of storytelling and near non-existent attention span. 'Undeniably funny, unspeakably juvenile' (The Scotsman) 'This vivacious comic with the wild hair and cheeky glint in his eye is a natural performer, and that will get him a long way' (Chortle) '... Likeable on stage, energetic and enthusiastic' (The Stand Comedy Club) 'Fizzing with energy' (The List) 'Full marks!' (Three Weeks)

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).

'Don't be fooled by the diminutive frame. Within that pint-sized exterior lies a talent so huge that it can barely be contained. Susan Morrison is a comedy volcano, erupting with an endless flow of scorching hot gags, spewing forth at a blistering pace' (www.suziemo.co.uk) 'A supremely capable comedian' (The Scotsman). 'Susan Morrison - the Glaswegian wit for whom the word feisty was invented' (Scotland on Sunday) 'Bolshy and brassy - she's the queen of cool' (The List).

'Perth-born Joe Heenan performed his first gig in Edinburgh in 1995, and is now a regular compere at the Stand comedy clubs in Glasgow and Edinburgh. He has also written for Chewing the Fat, The Live Floor Show and The Karen Dunbar Show as well as appearing in TV ads for the Scottish Sun newspaper and the Bank of Scotland' (Chortle). Sharp comments and brilliant one-liners. 'The Perth-based comic's act just keeps on getting better...' (Metro) '... don't be fooled by his wide, friendly smile... this man bites!' (Evening News).

Despite looking like a slightly dishevelled and demented geography lecturer, he is a brilliant comedian. He crackles with childish energy, getting caught in flights of fancy and going off on strange tangents, but never loses sight of the gag. A performer worth the admission price alone. He was a regular in BBC2's Johnny Vegas sitcom 'Ideal', a former City Life Comedian of the Year and Breakthrough Act at the North West Comedy Awards. Like a truly bizarre hybrid of Harry Hill, Half Man Half Biscuit and Viz comic, Seymour is a teller of extremely tall tales and High Priest of the terrifically twisted one-liner. He was also victorious in the Cup A Soup Comedy Challenge. You may mock such a curiously named title but the prize money was 10 grand. 'Leaves his crowd uplifted, entertained and laden with charity shop-bought gifts...Warm, original and weird' (Edinburgh Festival Guide) 'Breathtaking... a surreal performance, he had the audience in the palm of his hand from start to finish' (Evening Chronicle).

Formerly of the comedy duo Mat & Faron, Matt Reed went solo in 2002, scoring Leicester Comedian Of The Year in 2003. An energetic and engaging performer, he's loaded with cheek and will make your eyes water. 'Absolutely hilarious... had the crowd rolling around' (BBC).
