Although hailed as the only blind comic on the stand up circuit, comedian Chris McCausland makes light of it. He usually begins with a crack about the irony of a blind man doing observational comedy and then speeds off into his entertaining and refreshing set, making wry and perceptive comments about the rich and famous, every day life and suchlike. Instantly likeable and definitely memorable. 'Proper stand up, honest straightforward and balls-out funny' (Chortle) 'A must see!' (The Sunday Times) 'Always excellent' (The Times) 'Truly brilliant' (Three Weeks) 'The new face of comedy in the UK' (ITV) 'Shining Light!' (Sunday Express) '... fabulously funny and a definite highlight' (Leicester Mercury).

Stand-up comedian and sit-down magician. Described as like 'Alison Steadman playing a beauty consultant doing Tommy Cooper-style magic – but without the fez', Mandy would take that as a compliment. With an act made for the digitally-enhanced age, Mandy has audiences astounded with both the brilliance of some (certainly not all) of her magic and in hysterics at her off-the-cuff one-liners and observations.

This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience. A finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more unusual. 'Hugely enjoyable... a ton of great stories... one to watch' (The Guardian) 'Razor sharp humour' (Metro) '... the appealing and perceptive Barry Dodds... captivates his audiences with his energy, spirit and tantalizing wit. His mix of surprisingly uncanny and irrepressibly cheeky material leaves them wanting for more' (Funhouse Comedy).

Dave Twentyman's burgeoning reputation means that he can now confidently consider himself one of his home town of St Helens’ finest exports, tales of home, work and the universe are delivered in a stream of consciousness both mesmerizing and friendly. 'Affable, quick-witted banter merchant, Dave Twentyman survived a childhood in St Helens by evolving rapid, startlingly-bright patter and a smile that he somehow stole from Barry Manilow. This is a man who could teach Teflon a trick-or-two but who remains vastly more fun than your average frying-pan. What higher praise can there be?' (comedycv.co.uk) 'Thoroughly impressed, best I've seen in ages. Great warmth and style' (Dave Spikey) 'Quick on his feet' (Gag Reflex) 'Really like his stuff' (Jason Manford).
